Just a reminder to those who have bought plants for their garden - it is still early for planting as the night temperature is still fluxuating - if the temperature goes below 55 at night consider covering your plants - the longer they stay out the hardier they will be but don’t be disappointed if you don’t see fast growth, its still early to plant, the days aren’t consistently warm, and the nights are still cold.

Water is off in C Row ---see web site for updates:  www.berkeleygardens.org
