— Written By and last updated by bloodroot plants emerging in spring

These brave “lil bloodroots” popped out this week to welcome the spring.

The ramps, ferns, trillium, and spring greens are also up and about, dancing with the cool mornings and spring sunshine.


As we weed and seed and plant and dream – thankful for all that we have – We wish you a beautiful season ahead and would love to here what you are up to.

You also may consider joining our new Woodland Stewards Crew to dive deeper into forest farming and get to know these plants and their care through the seasons at the woodland botanicals Demo Forest in Mills River.
