Summer perennials are in full bloom, and make a great choice for filling in some bare spots in the flower beds.
There are some nice Black-eyed Susan, Echinacea, Butterfly Bushes, Speedwells, and Shasta Daisies. Perennial Grasses are good choices for background borders.
There are some different varieties of Sedum available if you are interested in drought gardening. They love the full sun and require almost no watering.
It is hard to believe that August is here already. It seems like the summer is flying by. Now is the time when it is important to make sure your plants get plenty of water and fertilizer to help them make it the rest of the way.
If some of your flowers have already been scorched by the hot summer, we still have a great selection of beautiful flowers. Fresh hanging baskets or a nice patio planter can quickly change the look of your backyard.
Summer is officially here! The greenhouse still has a great selection of plants, like perennials, herbs, raspberry bushes and grapes. There is still time to get some nice flower and vegetable plants from the greenhouse; its not to late to plant. Sometimes things don't grow the way you expect them to, so we keep a small selection of tomato, pepper and cabbage plants available in the greenhouse.
We also have a great selection of late season hanging baskets now available, they are fresh and full of color.
June is Perennial Month
Perennials are in full color right now and there is a great selection to choose from. Butterfly bushes, Stella d' oro, Coreopsis, and Lupines are all beginning to bloom. We also have some nice perennial grasses to choose from. Canna Lilies are here! We have yellow, red, and rose. These lilies add a unique look to your landscape.
Any time you plant perennials it is a good idea to add a little Bone Meal to the hole, this will stimulate root growth to get them started. Also make sure that they get plenty of water during the hot summer months.
Spring is in full swing!
The spring gardening season is in full swing right now. The weather has been terrific and the plants are beautiful. There is still a great selection of annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, zonal geraniums, herbs and wave petunias to choose from.

Planting for Spring
We have been busy planting at the greenhouse now for several weeks. The greenhouses are warm and thousands of tiny plants are growing in hanging baskets, pots and flats. Impatiens, petunias, marigolds, herbs, and perennials have all been planted already. Very soon we will start planting peppers and tomato plants.
Seed potatoes, onion sets and garden seeds are now available for sale in our retail store.
