It feels like spring, so why don’t all of my plants look like it’s spring? We hear this question a lot. The environment will trigger plants to break out of dormancy – warmer air temperature, longer days and more sunshine. Here’s some other reasons a plant may be slower to start growing again.
What type of plant it is – some plants require more warmth than others to wake up in the spring.
Size of the plant – sometimes larger plants take longer than smaller plants to green up.
Location of the plant –if it’s located in a shady spot, it will take longer to warm up.
Health of the plant – it may not have survived the winter. We spoke about how to check if a plant was dormant or dead in the last newsletter.
My advice is to confirm the plant is alive, be patient and give it some time to wake up.
