A Rainy Day

It is raining today...again.

But, as all good gardeners know a cloudy, rainy day is perfect for planting and transplanting.
It is also a perfect day to snap photos of some of the beautiful perennials we have blooming.

So, put on your wellies and get out there and plant!

The Glorious Month of June

June always brings a sigh of relaxation in the garden.  May is so hectic and the chores seem never ending.  The chance of a frost is always on our mind.  We rush and try to obtain the choicest annuals, for we all want the constant bloom.

But, June, sweet June.....
June is the month of Peonies, Iris and Poppies and all the wonderful perennials we care for year after year.

June also tells you what perennials survived the hard winter, and what you will need to replant.

We are fully stocked with a wide variety of perennials to help you fill those bare spots.

We are open weekdays until 6pm and Sundays until 5p.
Hope to see you soon.

July 4th Holiday

Coreopsis 'Mercury Rising'
seems to be the appropriate flower for this week, for isn't it just so.  The temperature always rises for the 4th!
This is the newest hybrid of Threadleaf Coreopsis we have in stock, and must admit I am rather fond of those ruby red blooms.

We will be open limited hours during the weekend holiday.
Open Friday the 4th  - 10a -1p
 Closed both Saturday and Sunday

We wish you all great times with family, friends and many exclamations over your local fireworks displays!

Why do we Garden?

Is it born within us? 
Is it for the sense of accomplishment?
Or, the simplistic joy of the journey from seed to soil to harvest

Perhaps this quotation says it best
I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”
John Burroughs

We hope you spend the upcoming weekend having your senses put in order and finding your "nature".

Blooming Today

June is such a great month for blooming perennials, and the Campanula really shines on these overcast days.
 Campanula 'Samantha' is such a happy flower,

the periwinkle cup shaped blooms fill this 8" plant, and will rebloom if diligent in your deadheading
