NY Times: Gardeners, What’s Up With This Warm Winter?

I’ve been looking for expert advice on how this warm winter will change gardening this year. The New York Times digs in today:
“On the one hand, it’s great to see flowers this early — it lifts your spirits,” said Mr. Mardon, a Bronx native and lifelong gardener. “On the other hand, it creates apprehension. Gardens need an opportunity to rest, and that’s what a good winter provides.”

  1. One word: bugs. Cold snap could kill buds, but the bugs, they’re still out there.
