Warning: Disease Striking Northern Gardnerers

Many gardeners in northern America have begun displaying symptoms of DSS - Delayed Spring Syndrome.

Symptoms include:  obsessing over seed and plant catalogs, parking at the local garden center and staring at the emptiness, writing snarky comments on blogs that talk about the blooms, growth and work being done in warmer gardens, and inappropriate use of dirty words like hoe, compost and bulb.

Treatment options are few and they will only temporarily alleviate symptoms.  These treatment options include repotting all of the houseplants of everyone in the neighborhood, ordering more plants and traveling to warmer climate to visit public gardens. 

All of these treatments are short lived and symptoms will return after treatment.

The only known cure is spring.
