The second annual Thaw ‘n Awe horticultural symposium will take place March 13th in Twin Falls. Speakers include the internationally known Panayoti Kelaidis, who will be speaking about “sun daisies, hardy gazanias and manzanitas that survive 50 degrees below zero,” among other topics. Other speakers will discuss plants native to Idaho, creativity in garden design, and iris breeding. Get your thirty bucks to them by March 1st. Sounds like you won’t regret it.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
