Trial Hanging Baskets Now Available 

Greetings!

 

We have finished trialling our 10" Calibrachoas, 10" New Guinea Impatiens, and 12" Mixed Supertrailing Petunia hanging baskets, so one of each variety will be available on Saturday morning.

These baskets are in prime condition as they have been growing for an extended time period in the climate controlled greenhouse.

We also have some large 16" Moss baskets, for both sun and shade, that are filling out quite nicely and looking great!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

P.S.
A little reminder to all those gardeners who were enquiring about moss, an additional shipment  has arrived.  Now you can get that final wire frame basket finished up!

Grow Your Own Hardy Herbs  

 

If you have a little space in your herb garden, be sure to add in some perennial herbs!  There is still a great selection Lavender, Echinacea, Sage, Curry plant, Mint and Thyme.  All of these can be found on an additional herb table B18.

 

 

Echinacea & Aromatic Purple Sage  


Aromatic Purple Sage foliage can be used in stuffings, sausages, omelettes, soups and stews. Echinacea is now a household name, and herbal products made from it are found in every corner pharmacy.  It is truly the queen of medicinal herbs because it not only helps the body fight off disease by boosting the immune system, it is one of the showiest perennial herbs in the garden.

These will look great as a specimen plant in a container on their own, or in a shady foliage combination, or even in a vacant spot in the shaded flower bed.
