Last Rollout of our Beautiful Mixed Hanging Baskets!

Hello there, 

Now that all our large mixed hanging basket orders have been finalized and picked up, we are able to offer the remaining and spare baskets to the public!  Saturday morning these 12" mixed sun and mixed shade hanging baskets will be available and they are still only $32.99.  

We are also bringing out the second planting of the Mixed Wave Petunia 12" hanging baskets.  These beauties are planted with an assortment of 7 different colours, are looking great and will continue to all summer long in a nice sunny location.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Instant Planters!

We have also had many inquiries regarding the 4" round pot that is inserted in the centre of the 10" Zonal Geranium hanging baskets.  This pot is intended to be removed allowing the new owner to plant a centrepiece plant such as a dracaena spike or ornamental grass in the middle of the pot without having to disturb the roots of the Geranium.

If you are not wanting to add a centrepiece, simply remove the pot and replace the soil into the empty space.

These baskets each have 6 well established Geraniums in them and are only $17.99 each.
 
Unique Focal Point Plants
Digiplexis Digitalis Illumination Flame
Digiplexis (Digitalis) 'Illumination Flame'
Digiplexis

Want to try something a little different in planters or flowers bed this season?  How about this stunning cousin to Foxglove?  Digiplexis 'Illumination Flame' offers bright reddish orange, tubular flowers with a yellow throat all densely packed on stems reaching 36" in height.

These thrive in the full sun or partial shade, when planted in moist soil with good drainage.  Flowering all summer long, Digiplexis is ideal for patio planters, flower beds or borders and is a good choice for cut flowers.
 
Eucomis (AKA Pineapple Lily)

Looking for something a little more exotic looking?  Try out a variety of Eucomis or Pineapple Lily.  Glossy sword-like foliage with pineapple-like stalks of charming flowers provide dramatic yet elegant focal point plants.  Choose from burgundy leaved 'Oakhurst', purple speckled leaved 'Freckles' or 'Glow Sticks' with foliage that changes from coppery-gold in the spring to a burnished green-gold in the summer.
