Warm weather gardening in the Valley

Home and garden centers around the Valley are preparing for the warm summer season

Garden centers, like Petitti Garden Center in Boardman, have thousands of plants and flowers in full bloom.


BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The warm weather lately has been perfect for eager gardeners wanting to get their hands dirty.

Garden centers like Petitti Garden Center in Boardman have thousands of plants and flowers in full bloom. Manager Pat Vokes said May and June are the busiest months they prepare for all year.

The hot sale this week was petunias, which he said love the humid climate. But Vokes said this year they’re selling a more interesting variety than ever before.

“For example, we got azaleas, which are blooming like crazy right now, so we got a nice sale on azaleas, buy one get one free, and they grow all year and you get color all spring,” Vokes said.

He also said Petittis can help you figure out what would grow best in your yard, and will point you in the right direction with the colors you want too.
