Don't lose hope...

Greetings!
 
Well, it sure doesn't look or feel like spring has sprung yet, but let's not get discouraged - we have what you need to cheer you up!  The first Daffodils are opening and other cool crops like Primulas, Pansies, Pot Carnations, and Ranunculas are starting to show good colour.

These all make great plants for a hardy outdoor spring planter that can be kept by the front door to cheer you up when you enter and leave.  Just remember to bring them under cover when heavy frost warnings occur.

Happy gardening!

'Dutchmaster' Daffodils
Whimsical Fairy Garden

As well as our cool crop plants, we have a great selection of fairy garden characters including some brand new fairy garden decor themes like Enchanted Forest, and Neverland to help you get past the winter blues.

Cool Cole Crops

We also have added to our hardy veggie and herb table on C-6!  We will be bringing out young bedding packs of Cole crops like Broccoli, Kale, Cabbage, and Kohlrabi, as well as some 2.5" potted Lettuces that are nearly ready to eat.

Don't forget we have a great selection of herbs which can be placed in a bright location on a windowsill in the kitchen for easy fresh picking during these cooler days of late winter and early spring.  Once weather has improved, you will be able to plant them outdoors in planters or the garden.
