As we continue to practice physical distance but social connectedness, we have again focused this month on online content, events and activities. Wishing everyone a beautiful new chapter in your garden and landscape as we transition from spring to summer soon.
We hope this E-journal finds you staying safe and healthy as well as continuing to find ways to ‘dig in’ at home. This month we want to share with you links to our recent online video presentations, a few virtual events, and other online resources to help you stay connected with plants and others during this time.
During this unprecedented time, we are all making adjustments to our daily lives. We wanted to let you know that we are here to continue to support our Plants Map community and our services that connect people with plants. In this E-journal we wanted to focus on gardening and outdoor activities that you can do at home, safely outside, and online during this time of social distancing because we all still need to feel connected…especially to nature.
Over the past few days we’ve received a lot of messages and calls asking if we were still making plant tags. Last week we moved our printing equipment and supplies out of our offices in Fredericksburg and we are continuing to print and ship orders. Everyone on our team is now working remotely from their home.
Signs of an early spring are popping up in gardens, landscapes, and on Plants Map too. As we get ready to spring forward, we wanted to share our recent news and updates with you including early spring gardening tips, garden trends, and more. Let’s get ready for a beautiful spring season arriving soon!

From Savannah Now: The free garden at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum in downtown Savannah has long offered a lunchtime oasis for office workers and a shaded respite for tired tourists. Now it’s upping its game by also offering a little educational interaction.
