April 18: What is blooming and growing

In 2021, I am sharing weekly updates of what is growing and blooming in my garden.

The last of the hellebore flowers are blooming. These are the hybrid ones.

The first signs of rhubarb. I'm growing mine in grow bags due to spacing issues.

The spicebush glow in the back garden in the early morning light. (They are also referred to as the "forsythia of the woods." I do like their petite blossoms more than the traditional forsythia.

Growing cool weather crops, such as these bok choy plants in window boxes.

The hyacinths are in full bloom and scenting the air.

The grape hyacinths are beginning to bloom.

The mid-season daffodils are peaking in bloom. The last of the early-blooming ones are beginning to finish blooming. 

The plum trees are peaking in bloom. There are so many blossoms this year!

What else is happening this week in the garden: 

  • The alpine strawberries are setting flowers.

  • The snap peas are continuing to emerge from the soil.

  • Tulips are growing steadily.

  • Pansies and violas are blooming. The wild violets are beginning to appear and will have blooms soon.

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).
