Happy Mother's Day!
Mixed Mother's Day Baskets
Greetings!

 

Treat Mom to a beautiful Premium mixed 14" hanging basket for a sunny or shady location.  You can choose from 1000's of hanging baskets and wallbags to suit any location, including New Guinea Impatiens, Ivy Geraniums, Supertrailing Petunias (in single varieties and mixes), Fuchsias, Begonias, and Calibrachoas--which the Hummingbirds love and are looking really great!
As vibrant as mom's personality!
Or perhaps a planter for the deck or entryway?  We will be continually bringing out a selection of planters in different sizes and combinations throughout the weekend as they are completed, ranging in price from $19.99 to $135.00, and a few priced at $11.99 to $14.99.  They are perfect for immediate colour to mark this special day for all Mom's!
Looking forward to seeing you soon, and once again, Happy Mother's Day!

Some Can Swim, Some Can... Eat Flies?

More water plants will be available this weekend! These include more floaters, like the Water Lettuce you have been waiting for, and double flower Marsh Marigold. We also have some unique variegated snake grass.

For something a little unique and fun for indoors, we have Venus Fly Traps available!

Don't forget you can park diagonally alongside our side gate, just around the corner of our main entrance, and walk through our regular parking lot.
Parking Troubles!

Unfortunately some of our customers have been parking along the road and infringing on the bike lane.  We have had the city of Kelowna bylaw officers come by to remind everyone that it is illegal to obstruct the bike lane, and you can be ticketed.

The busy rush caused by 'Gardening Fever' only happens for a short time each year, so please be patient trying to park and remember to stay off the bike lane!

Remember we are open Thursday until 6pm and Friday until 7pm. During those hours, parking is more reasonable in our own lot.

Thanks in advance :)

Red Robin Tomato Hanging Basket

Don't forget with this nice weather to think about tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers (but remember to harden plants--now mainly for wind and sun).

We still have an excellent selection, not only of our regular varieties, but also of our collector, Heirloom and hanging basket tomatoes, as well as our "Beat Your Neighbour" 2 gallon pots.

Guess The Plants Contest - Week 8
How Good Is Your Eye?

Be one of the first three people to guess all three photos correctly to win a prize!

Prizes:
1st Place: $20 Greenery Gift Card
2nd Place: $10 Greenery Gift Card
3rd Place: $5 Greenery Gift Card

Head over to The Greenery's Facebook Page and comment on the contest photo at the top of the page to enter.

Keep guessing as we won't be announcing the winners or telling anyone they got it right until the end of the week!

NOTE: Please do not email us your answers. Facebook entries only.
Since this is a "first 3 people to guess correctly wins" type of contest, we'd like to keep entries out in the open for everyone to see. Facebook comments are always in chronological order to keep things fair. It's also fun to see what everyone else is guessing! If you don't have a Facebook account, we encourage you to pester a friend to enter on your behalf.

About the Contest
Each week this season, when the newsletter comes out, look for our new Guess The Plants Contest! Each set of photos will be taken from The Greenery's retail space this week.
