Can't Get Enough Hanging Baskets?  

Greetings!

 

Our 10" late mixed sun hanging baskets will be available on Saturday, May 18th.  If you missed out on the 12" hanging baskets - be sure to come in for one of these.

With an assortment of over 15 different plants in each basket, they are going to look great all summer, and they are priced at only $21.99!  Also, there are still over 100 12" mixed shade hanging baskets available at $29.99.

As a response to an increasing number of requests, and the growing popularity of our mixed hanging baskets for sun, we have decided to experiment with some 16" moss baskets.  We will have about 30 for sun and a few for shade available this Saturday priced at $125.00.

Calling All Begonia Lovers!

The Speciality Begonias look stunning!  Bonfire, Santa Cruz, Encanto, and the Million Kisses Series in hanging baskets are all a great choice for the Begonia lovers out there!  These varieties can all take more sun than the regular Begonias, and offer some great colour.

Last year we had great success even on the south and north-west side of our house.  If you love the traditional trailing Begonias for a shady area, we have a good selection of 12" Illumination and Dragon Wing Begonia hanging baskets, as well as 10" Non Stop and Waterfall baskets.
Don't Forget the Geraniums

Now that there is more room, we are starting to drop down the 10" European Mini Ivy Geraniums from the upper levels, and WOW! Do they look great!

As for wallbags there is still a great selection of some really nice Double Impatiens, Petunias, Calibrachoas, and Ivy Geraniums available
Bougainvillea & Trellised Vines

We now have more Bougainvillea plants on table A10 north, in 5.5" and 3.5" pots.  Bougainvillea is an immensely showy and floriferous plant.  It can be coaxed into a small manageable pot plant, left to ramble or trail in a hanging basket, or grown into a sizeable tree- if given a place to overwinter here in the Okanagan.

Tender Succulents

Take on these luscious beauties for a trendy look!  Tender Succulents are perfect for the hot and dry Kelowna summers, offering unusual foliage and providing fantastic colour and texture. They are super low maintenance and drought tolerant, and can be used in pots, hanging baskets or window boxes.

The parking lot has been less hectic, so for some of you who did not want to park on the road, there should now be space in our lot.

For those seeking extra gardening advice, some Kelowna Master Gardeners will be on hand Saturday 18th, from 10AM to 3PM.

Love your store. My 88 year old mother and I shop till we can't stuff anymore into the car. Every spring. My Hubbie always laughs and says I'm grounded.…
