Name: Bob Kansas...The Land of Ahhhhhs I'm retired Fishing is my job.
I'm surprised that I'm so far ahead of you being in zone 6b. I've had lots of blooms for nearly a month now although Milkshake is just opening up though. Very few of my plants are not blooming yet. This is a very good year for plants unless I get lots of big hail. We've had a lot of rain while not much hail so far.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
We are a little late due to a fairly cool Spring. But most years take to mid June for the Echinacea. Marmalade started opening today and plenty of buds throughout the garden. The cooler Spring has been great for the Heuchera best year they have had in quite awhile.My last order of Echinacea should show up tomorrow.
