The winter weather is allegedly getting close to breaking and that means gardens and flower beds. Here are some Utica nurseries and garden supply stores to get you started this Spring.

Once we get temperatures of Spring settled to something that is a little more moderate gardening will become a top priority. While the National Weather Service is still predicting a chance of snow until this weekend, the sunny temps in the low to mid-fifties will eventually roll in. It is one of the coldest Aprils to-date but we are getting close.

Unless you are a well-seasoned gardener, and I'm not, I try to get help on finding what to plant and more importantly when to plant. Here are the top five nurseries and garden supply stores in Utica that can help you get started as well as help with what to buy and when and where to plant.
