It's spring and that means it time to plant. But which flowers should you plant? Pike Nurseries Assistant Manager Melodie McDanal has some new plants that are available this spring!

Edibles

Jelly Bean Blueberry --  They are a very sweet berry and tastes like jelly. It's a dwarf blueberry that is only two feet by two feet.

Peach Sorbet Blueberry -- Wonderful berries, but it actually gets its name for its foliage color in fall. It's a dwarf blueberry that can be grown in the garden or even in a pot
    
Raspberry Shortcake Raspberry -- Dwarf raspberry that doesn't need a large fence or trellis like most raspberries

Thornless
    
Mighty 'Matoes -- This is the second year the Mighty Mato has been available and its popularity is growing. It's a grafted tomato so you get a great tomato that is stronger and produces more tomatoes.

Lemon Slice Calibrachoa – This trumpet shaped flower have yellow and white stripes

    We already know about some of the fees our banks charge -- the monthly fee, the overdraft charge, out-of-network and minimum balance fees. That's standard stuff. But did you know that the average checking account has 30 fees attached?
