Greetings!

 

Air, water, and earth... 

 

Whether you're looking for plants to hang, plants to float, or plants for the landscape and garden, we have something for everyone in this month's newsletter!

 

P.S. Don't forget, we're now open until 7pm on every Friday in May, as well as 6pm on Thursdays.

 

Mixed Hanging Baskets

 

Our hanging baskets for sun and shade locations will be available on Friday, May 4th, still priced at $29.99 each just like last year.

This season we have planted 1000 more of these popular baskets and hope to have them available for the next few weeks, or so.  For the first 3 days these baskets will be displayed on tables in selling section A.  The mixed sun baskets on tables A1 north and A1 south, and the mixed shade baskets on table A4 north.

Raymond Evison Clematis Collection & Bamboo 

 

Raymond Evison Clematis Shimmer

A collection of these new Clematis and hardy Bamboo will be arriving!  Our varieties of Bamboo are clumping types that make great living screens or hedges, and are hardy for our zone.

 

This collection of Clematis, developed by Raymond Evison, a world famous preeminent breeder of Clematis, bloom longer and bloom more!  In fact, under the right conditions, some varieties can bloom from June through to October.  In keeping with trends in the market, most are shorter growing and therefore best suited for containers and today's smaller gardens.
