Green Thoughts for the Day from the City of Fort Lauderdale

From one of our local businesses --
The Black Swallowtail Butterfly is back in town, and their pretty larvae are munching on parsleys, dill, fennel and rue. Don't panic or poison them... Just plant more!
Spring is really here and now is a good time to start pruning while branches are more sparse and it's easier to see what you are doing. It's also time to fertilize. Stick to organic to nourish the soil and make plants strong.
With the Spring holidays around the corner, The Garden Gate is brimming with color and variety. New orchids are in this week, including Cattleyas and the fragrant Dendrobium nobile.
Enjoy the beautiful weather and try to catch spring fever. It's definitely going around!
