Greetings!

 

Set Up in Full Swing!

 

We are continuing to set up the selling areas, and all sections are now open to the public however plants are still being moved onto their final table spaces.

 

 

Check out what we have so far!

Geraniums

Our full set up of geraniums in selling section 'B' is complete.  New and exciting this season is Fantasia Raspberry Twizzle, a unique bi-colour flower pattern never before seen in dark-leafed zonal geraniums.

In the past few years, we introduced interspecific geraniums such as the Calliopes. This season, a great new addition has been added to the Cumbanita Series which has a deep rose colour!  There are still great choices of exotic geraniums including the Graffitis and the Fireworks Series. There are also new Scented geraniums such as Fernleaf, Strawberry, and Apricot.

 

Basket Stuffers

 

We will have our full selection of Basket Stuffers set up by Saturday morning, including some exciting new varieties.  Having such success with Coreopsis Jive last season, we added a new series of Tender Coreopsis from Terra Nova such as: Fruit Punch, Pumpkin Pie, and Tropical Lemonade.  An addition to our popular Skyfire trailing Calendula, is Skyfire Double Calendula, with the same great bright yellow flowers, but with double blooms!  As well you can find all the tried and tested selections such as Bacopa, Bidens, Diascia, Nemesia, Creeping Jenny, Creeping Charlie, Vinca, and Sweet Potato Vines, which like somewhat warmer weather!

Super Trailing Petunias

 

As the weather continues to improve, our super trailing petunias have been fully set-up with a few new varieties as well.

 

 

Check out the new series from Novella, including Tango Orange and Pink Star. A new colour from the trendy Glow Series, Glow Rose Blush comes to join the Glow Forest Fire and Flour Rose as great medium length trailing petunias.

 

Also we have returning varieties such as Suncatcher Pink Lemonade and Midnight Blue, the Sanguna Series (our best performers), Sun Ray (one of the best yellow petunias), and of course, the Wave Series (with the ability to trail/spread up to 4 feet).

 

Heather is Here!

Assortment of Heather

 

 

The plant, that is! Our shipment of heathers from Wilson's Nursery in Chilliwack, BC has arrived!

 

We have an assortment of Erica x darleyensis and Erica carnea, Winter-Spring flowering heathers as well as Calluna Vulgaris, The Heather of Scotland, which are Summer-Fall blooming.

Most of the varieties we have brought in this season display coloured foliage or colourful Spring tips and are low growing mounding plants that require little maintenance.

Special Opportunity 

 

Some five year old Brugmansia (Angel's Trumpet) stock plants of pink, yellow, white, and variegated are available in 19" pots, for only $59.99!

 

These are beautiful focal point plants for your outdoor living space, but they are very cold sensitive and will need to be kept in a greenhouse or solarium for a while!

 

We also have various sizes of Cordyline available ranging in price from $9.99 to $49.99.  Come in and purchase a large Brugmansia or Cordyline and receive a FREE 14" Spider plant hanging basket, while quantities last.
