Spring time in Southeastern Wisconsin is always a mixed bag, too far North in the hemisphere to be consistently warm, but far enough South for it to offer warmth without rain for the outdoors enthusiast.
Looking at trending air temperature patterns to June 1st shows cooling temperatures are in our future and that bodes poorly for the folks that plant annuals and seed stock here in Southeastern Wisconsin, bringing the condition report to “Satisfactory”
Memorial Day is the general no-frost period in this area, and that will hold up this year. Memorial day falls on May 27th, early by standard, and frost has occurred on that day historically. Except for this last weekend, no frost in sight is predicted for Spring 2013. High air temperatures by average will be slightly higher in mid May but noticeably low in later May. Low Air Temperatures ranging in the High 40’s will be consistent with average.
As of May 17th we should be enjoying by average 65-70 degrees. But the 2013 Spring outlook has us in the high 50’s only breaking 70 degrees when the rains come, drawing up South air temps with rain events, much like we saw in the winter.
As you read this report, the air temperatures of Mid 60’s and 70’s appear sustainable. Giving way late month to stalled high pressure systems in the northern plains drawing down Canadian air, cooling us, maybe a little too much..
Sunshine should be abundant though and the plant’s growing (albeit slow) will occur without frost until late October.
Planting perennial landscape plants is still the recommendation. This is due to their durability, larger root mass size, and the fact that what you plant and nurture will have longevity for years to come! “Time is the primary Asset”!
Also, those of you that lost Emerald Green Arborvitae in the drought should look at root mass size with the same concern as plant size. Smaller root masses tend to dehydrate faster, and more water is required. Nature’s Nook has 9’ Emerald Green Arbs @ $99.95 that have a big field dug root mass! If time is the primary asset you only want to replant this esteemed landscape feature once.
