Greetings!

 

Rest assured... the rain don't scare us!  

 

We know with the cool, wet weather conditions it is sometimes easy to forget about gardening, but don't get frustrated!  The weather will improve soon!  The majority of our retail is all under cover and there are no crowds when the rain is falling.

The Annuals Are Everywhere!!

 

We have brought out overflow annuals in bedding packs, onto the available tables out in selling section 'B' and 'C'.  Choose from Snapdragons, Portulaca, Dusty Miller, Dianthus (both Sweet William and Wee Willie Mix), Balsam, Coleus, Celosia and Thunbergia.  With four well developed plants in each bedding pack for only $1.59, those empty spaces in your garden will be gone in no time!

Hand in Hand, the Summer Season arrives with... the  BBQ Season! 

 

There is still an excellent selection of Rosemary and Onions.  The Rosemary is already 8-10" tall, in 3.5" square pots for only $1.99.  Plant it in your herb garden and dry it for creating a BBQ rub, or pick it fresh to use in some homemade sauces.

 

The bedding packs of onions are packed with more than 30 seedlings that are ready for transplanting into the vegetable garden.
Perennials

Saturday Perennial Giveaway: All Gone!

Last Saturday morning we were giving away 2.5" starter perennials with every $10 purchase (before tax) and it was a popular give away!  We ran out of product before the afternoon, giving away more than 50 flats of product!

If you missed out, don't fret. This week we have continued planting up our stock pots for the 2013 season, and will once again have some extra perennial plants to give away.  Most likely the product won't last through the day again, so please remember it is only while quantities last!

The Coleus Are Coming... 

 

This Saturday morning, the Coleus stock pots will be brought out.  Beautiful one year old plants in 10" pots for only $9.99.  These will look great as a specimen plant in a container on their own, or in a shady foliage combination, or even in the vacant spot in the flower bed.

If you find yourself with a few extra minutes when you are in next time, take a walk through our Perennial Display Garden--with all the rain we have been having there are some amazingly large specimens out there and it is looking great!

Tomato Video Series

Vegetable Series: Cherry Tomatoes
Introduction to Cherry Tomatoes


Cherry Tomatoes were given their name for a reason... Sweet, small, and cute, these fruits (yes, they're fruits!) are a perfect compliment to your salads, both in taste and colour.
