BrazelBerries Back in Stock

Hi there,

 

Our BrazelBerries sold out quickly when we announced their arrival last week! If you missed them, don't fret. We've just brought in an additional shipment this week and hope to have them for more than 2 days this time!

Not heard of Brazelberries? These are ornamental bushes which produce edible fruits--either blueberries or raspberries. Varieties we carry are 'Raspberry Shortcake', 'Peach Sorbet' (blueberry), and 'Jelly Bean' (blueberry).

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
The Greenery Family

One per customer, while supplies last.
Geraniums Galore!

Our full set up of geraniums in selling section B is complete.  Over the last four years, Calliope Dark Red has become our best selling trailing geranium. It seems most people we recommend it to become instantly hooked!  Again for this season we have the new interspecific geraniums--Calliope 'Burgundy', 'Hot Pink', and 'Lavender Rose', which are becoming a favourite among our customers, alongside Calliope ' Dark Red' and 'Scarlet Fire'. 

Interspecific Geranium Calliope 'Lavender Rose'

Also look for the new Ivy Geranium, Focus Red Ice, which offers very consistent variegation in the flower, nice zoning on the leaf and has a vigorous growth habit in comparison to the other bicolour varieties. The new Zonal Geranium, Fantasia Cranberry Sizzle, adds a great new shade to the ever growing popular Sizzle series of Strawberry and Purple with their bicolour flowers and rich dark foliage.

New and Notable Petunias

New petunias this year include Blanket Midnight Velvet with single flowers, and Blanket Double Chardonnay and Blanket Double Zinfandel with small double flowers on vigorous spreading/trailing plants.

As new petunia series goes, there is Happytoonia, Prettytoonia, and Mini Blast Rose. With an array of colors on spreading type plants these are sure to delight.  We also have some new additions to our standard series with proven reputations, such as Cascadia 'Indian Summer', Rim Chianti, and Famous Firestorm.
For those looking for more unique color arrangements, Glow 'Blue Stardust', Flashmob 'Magentacular', and Flashmob 'Pinkceptional' will add that WOW factor to your baskets and planters, and can all be found on tables C-9 to C-12.

Unfortunately due to availability shortages our production of Potunias and Sweetunias will be delayed until late April. Please keep checking our newsletter for the availability date of these popular mounding type petunias.

We will have other mounding types available such as the Crazytunias and Good and Plenty petunias on table C-13.
