Despite the mildest winter in recent memory, a Forsythia fever outbreak is spreading quickly through the population of southern Minnesota gardeners. Risk factors include a prior history of generalized spring fever, exposure to warm spring breezes, and catching sight of a neighbor’s Forsythia in full bloom.
Once an avid gardener has contracted Forsythia fever, the treatment protocol is fairly straightforward. Proceed directly to Knecht’s Nurseries where you will find Forsythia in stock, select the variety that suits your fancy, and plant in a highly visible location in your landscape. Next, allow the rich yellow burst of the first spring blossoms to soothe your soul and elevate your energy.
Within hours, winter malise should melt away, and all will be right with the world. Enjoy the wild and whacky spring of 2012, and a Forsythia feast for your winter weary eyes.
