Color Army

 Right now, at HMB Nursery, there is a myriad of 4″ annuals. We are finally coming out of the age of red and white holiday bullshit, and headed – trowel first – into Spring.

I spent my morning sinking 4″ dark blue pansies in the ground, amongst some California poppies, and adjacent a giant blueberry in mid hibernation. I love planting this size, since it’s so easy to quickly fill in an area in your garden with color. I kneel, dig, plop out said annual, plop in the ground and cover.

I can plant a pansy in under 5 seconds – give or take clay soil. It’s one of my many dark gifts.
