First pansies bloomed indoors. Transplant outdoors completed on Easter. The hollyhocks I planted last year are still alive. Looking forward to them blooming this year. All the crocuses have bloomed just in the past week or so - now to 3rd level fat small-tulip sized crocuses.
Last year, some pansies survived and thrived all summer, planted with onions. So planted more onion-and-pansy combo boxes this year, and tried putting a bit of potassium-heavy root-vegetable fertilizer in the soil when I transplanted in the pansies. Let's see how that works. (So far, it looks great. The wind has been howling, but the young pansies look robust, not whiny at all.)
