Spring in Bloom

While flowering Dogwoods are often seen as the star of the spring landscape, there are many other beautiful flowering trees to consider. Fringetrees, Magnolias, Ornamental Cherries, Serviceberries, Crabapples, Redbuds, and Witchazel provide not only stunning spring displays, but great fall color and fruit for birds.

Whether your garden is sunny or shady, large or small there is a flowering tree that will fit both your style and your garden. New trees are arriving every week, so stop by The Plant Kingdom and we will help you choose the perfect tree for your landscape.

For more information on choosing the perfect spring flowering tree, visit our Monthly Tip & Contest page. While you’re there you can also enter to win $25 Plant Kingdom Gift Card.

Frost Free? You Decide…

According to the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration the estimated last day of freeze for Metro Louisville is April 1st – 15th; however, because we are in a “warm pocket” surrounded by “cooler counties” this puts us higher risk for a drop in temperature later that estimated. To read the full article, visit the NOAA website. The map you will see depicts the time of year, on average, that areas across the nation can expect to see their temperatures dip to 32°F or below for the last time. Use this information as a guide to plan your schedule for the garden this spring. You will need to take appropriate measures to protect any cold sensitive annuals, warm season vegetables, and houseplants taken outside from the potentially damaging frost or freezes we might see in the coming weeks.

Happy Derby
