For all you curious customers, the remaining aisles in selling sections 'A' and 'B' have been opened for you to browse through.  Space has been made and crops have been shuffled to allow for certain items to be set up in their final table locations like 4 pack Alyssum on table C-3, including the unique 'Easter Bonnet Peach' and 'Lemonade' varieties.

As well, the 4 pack seed petunias are on table C-15 to C-19 and 4 pack Lobelia on table C-1.

A full selection of berries are now available, including Haskap (Honey Berries), Blueberries, Raspberries, Sea Berries, Dwarf Cherries, and the new BrazelBerries

BrazelBerry 'Peach Sorbet'
BrazelBerries are a recently introduced collection of berry varieties that offer ornamental qualities as well as amazing edible fruits on small stature bushes.  The idea is that you can plant these plants in containers on your patio, balcony or anywhere in your landscape, requiring minimal care and allowing for a rewarding and easy harvest.

Try out BrazelBerry 'Raspberry Shortcake'--a true dwarf, thornless raspberry plant that produces sweet fruits, BrazelBerry Blueberry Peach Sorbet or Blueberry Jelly Bean- two super compact blueberry plants that have incredible ornamental qualities while producing beautiful plump berries.
Hardy Fig
Hardy Fig

Sea Berries, or Sea Buckthorn Berries are an up and coming berry that have an incredibly high nutritional and antioxidant content.  Deep orange berries can be used to make juice with a high content of vitamin C and E.

Or try growing some Hardy Figs this season!  Rated for zone 5!  Fresh or dried, enjoy flavourful, small to medium sized fruits of brown to violet skin and strawberry pink pulp.  The plants die back to the ground during the cold winter months, and grow again each Spring.
