Take advantage of the beautiful springtime weather and create lasting memories in the garden by planting in-season trees, shrubs and perennials. It is a gift for the environment and for Mom, as it will provide Mom with gorgeous, fresh flowers year after year! Parterre suggests planting lilacs, peonies, cherry trees and tulips during this time of year. These flowers typically bloom around Mother’s Day and they make great cut flowers to provide Mom with beautiful bouquets for years to come.
