Warm Winter Weather And Your Spring Garden

Feb 10, 2012

When it hits 67 degrees in January, one must wonder what effect such odd winter weather is having on our plants, trees, and flowers.

Kansas City residents reported seeing daffodils popping up in the middle of winter, providing a bright moment of green and yellow in an otherwise dreary landscape.

In the second portion of Friday's Up to Date, guest host Brian Ellison talks with Powell Gardens horticulture director Alan Branhagen about what effect, if any, unseasonably warm weather might have on our spring gardens, what a hard freeze might do (or what happens if we don't have one), and how a change from planting zone 5 to zone 6 might change the way you design your landscape.
