What happens in the Hoop House...

We're out 3 weeks and 4 days since we moved our overwintering plant material into the hoop house, to warm up and show their stuff.

Today, I watered all the plants with a good
balanced, water-soluble plant food.

There really is no miracle involved.

Although, it'd be hard to convince these Peonies
that they weren't feeling it.

And look at this Brunnera, forming a nice bloom for later.

Even the Hosta, notoriously late risers, have agreed to
make an early appearance.

And the ever-faithful Chives, making their return.  These things will grow wherever they're dropped; this one has been in this pot for

Lots of Lady's Mantle, so very easy to grow as well.  And I love how they will let a raindrop rest on them -
it can look like jewels in the early morning.

Meanwhile, I'd moved the Helleborus outside.  They weren't enjoying the heat of the hoop house, since they are cool-weather bloomers.  I'm going to up-pot these soon.
Gearing up for the garden season!

These plants will continue their residence in the hoop house until
April 28th - plenty of growing time left - then will be for sale at the
