The recent snow and rain storms in late March and early April have put additional moisture in the ground for your lawns, trees, and plants to slowly take in since the ground is not frozen at this time of year.
Snow can actually deposit nitrogen in the ground. Falling snow captures nitrogen from the air and deposits on the ground and on the evergreen leaves where it is absorbed by the plant. Even dormant plants can absorb nitrogen from the snow.
A key benefit of living in New England is that if you do not like the weather, just wait a moment and it will change!
