DENVER —“Never plant in the garden until after Mother’s Day.” This year that old axiom couldn’t be more true … and for sure if you have been in the garden, your feet are full of mud!

“This next week will be a wonderful time to get plants in the ground, it’s cool and there is plenty of moisture in the air,” said Trela Phelps at City Floral Gardens.

“If we do get snow over the Mom’s Day weekend, just cover plants already in ground, with sheets or newspaper.” Snow is in the Pinpoint Weather forecast.

One Belcaro gardner we caught up with was buying several trays of flowering plants. We trailed her home to check out what a really nice spring garden looks like.

“I saw the sun peak through and figured this was a good time to get some mid-day planting in,” said Jen Kemp. “I hope the snow passes by quickly but if it doesn’t I will just get new plants, as I love to have a colorful garden in front of the house.”

All we can say is , she knows what she’s doing … just watch the video!
