It's Cherry Blossom Season in Gardens and Landscapes

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Mon, Mar, 16, 2015 @ 10:03 AM

CherryBlossomsMake it a Pink Party with American Horticultural Society and Corona Tools discussing cherry trees and cherry blossoms on the upcoming #Plantchat. What’s the appeal of cherry blossoms? Is it that we’re starved for spring, or is it their ephemeral beauty?

Join us for a Cherry Blossom edition of #plantchat on Monday, March 16 in a bevy of pink petals as we get ready for the National Cherry Blossom Festival, and also look at both fruiting and ornamental cherry trees in our gardens. Bring your cherry blossom photos to share. 

On the Chat, please share your own advice from your experience with cherry trees and cherry blossom festivals with the other Peeps.

Check out the countdown calendar to Spring! Coming THIS WEEK!
