Spring is Coming: Get Ready for Guerilla Gardening

Spring is Coming: Get Ready for Guerilla Gardening

An apology, first of all, to those of you still blanketed in snow. In the southern part of the states, we're feeling the temperatures drop and getting a peek at our always-early April showers. What does all this mean? Wildflowers are going to be gorgeous this spring. Find out what to plant in your area!

Friends of ours are planning on tossing some wildflower seed "bombs" (we hate to equate something so beautiful with something so violent) to toss on vacant or overgrown lots across town. In our area, bluebonnets (happily, the state flower) are expected to flourish this season because of El Nino.

To make sure you're throwing the right kind of seed for your neck of the woods, check out the Native Plant Database. Any patch of grass can become a forest of beautiful wildflowers, so be liberal with the seeds and hope for the best!
