April Snow Storm Impacts Local Gardens


Sunday's snow storm was severe enough to shutdown parts of Interstate 80 and the bad weather was something most gardeners across the state did not want to see.

Earl May Nursery says most people start their garden in the middle of March. And Sunday's spring snow storm killed many of the plants that were already put in the ground.

"Most of your grasses if they're budding up it's going to kill most of your grass, but if it's still seeded then you're good, you should be ok," said Roper Scoville, Earl May employee .

The nursery recommends using plant protectors or mulch to cover flowers during a snow storm. Pansies are the toughest flower to fight against the cold weather.
