Happy St. Patrick's Day (week)!

Hi there,

 

In honour of the old Irish holiday why not try growing some Oxalis regnellii- commonly called False Shamrock.  It creates a real unique effect with its beautiful dark purple clover-like leaves beneath delicate soft pink flowers.

Beautiful Mixed Planters

Wow! What a great selection of hardy spring planters in Section B.  We have been busy planting up a great assortment of frost hardy mixed planters, ranging in size from 8" plastic to 15" fibre pots, as well as colour bowls. These are great as a spring gift, or to add colour and fragrance to your entryway.

Myosotis (Forget Me Nots), Bellis (English Daisies), as well as some delicately blooming Erysimum, commonly called English Wallflower can all be found on table C5.  We have three varieties of the Winter series showing great colour right now, Winter Rouge, Winter Orchid, and Winter Sun.  These are possibly the largest growing and showiest of the Erysimums.
