Is it too early to hook up the hose to water them? I’m Zone 5 in the Hudson Valley and last frost isn’t til mid May… any tips? thanks!

We have turned our hoses on (I also live in zone 5 in the Hudson Valley). Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
