A New Growth is Arriving
Are you noticing a sudden and abundant new plant growth on your commercial property? If so, you are experiencing what we landscapers like to call “Spring Flush.” As soil temperatures rise in the springtime, plants begin to come out of their winter hibernation and grow with a vengeance! Annoying? Yes. Rare? Not at all.
You might notice this new growth sprouting in the form of shrubs, trees, turf or weeds. Spring flush will hit at anytime and there is nothing we can do to speed it up or slow it down. However, HighGrove knows how to effectively manage your spring flush so you can enjoy your summer.
Here are some key things you should know:
- Spring Flush is solely driven by temperature, which makes it tricky to know its exact arrival.
- Hormones and nutrients are stored throughout the plant during winter and rips out of the plant’s system like steroids as it warms up.
- During the end of March and early April you will observe each type of plant on your property growing rapidly all at the same time. This overflow of growth can cause pruning to become a challenge.
