Organic gardener growing food and flowers, lovin' pollinators and birds.

What's blooming and growing this week in the garden

It's all about snowdrops

 The rain has helped to clear the snow, and waiting to be discovered under tree limbs and along walkways are the white and green blossoms of snowdrops. 

Snowdrops are the first flowering bulbs to appear in the garden each year. Each year I add more to the garden, and now I have bulbs in the front and back gardens.

What else is happening this week in the garden:

  • The hellebores are in bud, but they remain close to the ground. 

  • Primroses have green leaves and buds.

  • Daffodils are peaking their heads up out of the soil. 

  • The witch hazel is in bloom. 

I garden in Zone 6b. The average cold weather minimum temperature for my growing region is -5 to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (-20.6 to -17.8 degrees Celsius).



  1. The first signs of spring are so inspiring and exciting! We are kicking of spring now with lots of green growth appearing on our herbaceous perennials. The creeping phlox is beginning to bloom! I'm ready for spring!

    1. I love having a sneak peek of what is to come in the Northeast by viewing in your garden first!
