The Village’s Landscape Advisory Commission has its spring update on the website. Check this page at https://www.riverside.il.us/598/Seasonal-Updates for seasonal garden tips and links to local resources for native plants.
One important thing to consider as you prepare for spring is to hold off on doing your annual spring garden clean up until temperatures are consistently over 50 degrees at night. It can be tempting to get a head start on this task when we have a warm day. But waiting allows overwintering insects, including native bees and butterflies to emerge and fulfill their role in the natural world.
