Huge Lavender selection to choose from_
Huge Lavender selection to choose from!
We have Loads of Lavender!

Every garden should have at least one Lavender in it!  With so many different varieties to choose from these days, the fragrance they add as well as the beauty and structure, they are perfect in a sunny location in the garden.  Known for their resistance to those problematic deer and for their excellence in attracting pollinators such as bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, Lavender is an excellent choice for many gardeners. 

Dilly Dilly: A compact growing variety, with violet flower spikes reaching above the silver-grey foliage and reaching 12-16" in height.
 
Fred Boutin: This lightly compact bush plant has slender, branched stems with small lavender blue flowers (reaching 18") and dense wooly almost white foliage.  An excellent choice for landscaping borders with it's attractive foliage holding into the cool season.
 
Grosso: An extremely fragrant variety with long stems that are excellent for dried bouquets and potpourris.  Deep Violet flowers reach 24" most of the summer, attracting butterflies and other pollinators all season.
 
Phenomenal: Strong silver foliage forms a bushy mound with long spikes of purple-blue flowers reaching 24-32".  Excellent for fresh cutting and drying.

Provence: Known as French Lavender, this variety features very long (30"), dense and full spikes of subtle lavender-blue flowers on sturdy, rot resistant foliage. Wonderful for fresh bouquets, lavender wands, potpourri, and culinary purposes. The aroma is milder and sweeter than other Lavenders.

Blue Cushion: This spectacular dwarf variety has grey green foliage and is free flowering with deep lavender blue flowers over a long season.  Excellent choice for borders, herb garden and even containers.
 
Silver Edge: Long spikes of medium blue flowers make a show above a bushy mound of grey green leaves that are edged in creamy white.Reaching a height of 22-28" this variety is excellent for fresh cutting or drying. 
 
There is a great selection of Lavender plants on tables E10 to E19, including 3 year old plants in 4.5" pots for only $3.99 and 2nd year plants for $2.59 in 3.5" pots.
Jolt Pink Dianthus
'Jolt Pink' Dianthus
Dreamy Dianthus!

The Jolt Dianthus produces a shocking blanket of intense colour all summer long!

These well-branching 16-20" plants are quickly saturated with lightly fragrant blooms that just continue to produce bouquet after bouquet. An excellent choice for cut flowers, mixed containers and flower beds.

These stunners will continue to impress all throughout the summer.

Choose from Jolt Cherry and Jolt Pink located on table E7.

Veggies Ready for Planting

For those who missed planting vegetables, don't worry there is still plenty of time -even for tomatoes.

 

Cucumbers, melons, squashes, and pumpkins are finally all available at a good size to plant and can be found on table A16 North.

 

As well, the last planting of hardy vegetables (lettuce, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc.) are a good transplanting size now.


 

With this nice warm weather,  a crop planted now will catch up to earlier plantings and still produce well for harvesting throughout summer and into the late season.

 

Herb and Annual Stock Pots !
 
We have brought out the Herb and some annual stock pots, and they can be found on table W2.  Beautiful one year old plants in 12" pots for $19.99.  Choose from a selection of Sage, Rosemary and Mint to add instant gratification to your culinary herb garden. Or choose from some annual Salvias, and Hebes to add to that empty space in your garden or on your patio.

The assorted Mint stock pots are large, vigorous plants that are ready to cut for your recipes or drinks!
