Global Worrying?

Daffodils in the Discovery Garden

First came the news that the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones have shifted (Welcome to Zone 7b, Brooklyn!). Then all over the Garden, snowdrops, daffodils, and crocuses were in full bloom days in advance of Groundhog Day. Now the warm weather has forced the cancellation of Winter Jam, the snow sports festival that was supposed to have taken place at Prospect Park Saturday. Six more weeks of winter? Six more weeks of spring seems more like it. If this warm weather is giving you anxiety rather than spring fever, check out BBG’s The Climate Conscious Gardener for advice on how to cope—and how to help.
