Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Greetings!

 

In honour of the old Irish holiday, why not try growing some Oxalis regnellii- commonly called False Shamrock.  It creates a real unique effect with its beautiful dark purple clover-like leaves beneath delicate soft pink flowers.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Beautiful Mixed Planters

What a great selection of hardy spring planters in Section B.  We have been busy planting up a beautiful assortment of frost hardy mixed planters, ranging in size from 8" plastic to 15" fibre pots, as well as some colour bowls. These are great as a spring gift, or to add colour and fragrance to your entryway.

Winter and Spring Colour with Heathers

This season, our Heather selection will be arriving from a Coastal BC family business, Qualitree Plant Program Specialists.  You can choose from favourites such as Erica series: 'Kraemers Red', 'Eva Gold' and 'Darley Dale' and 'Alba'.

Erica darleyensis is one of the easiest Heathers to grow, tolerating almost any soil and requiring little pruning, other than a little trim once they finish blooming to promote more branching.  Buds form in late summer or very early fall, some blooming as late as September, often lasting until the following May.  The flowers open pale and deepen as the season progresses.  They make a stunning addition to your containers or your garden beds.

We now have a nice selection of beautiful, hardy (zone 5) Erica darleyensis Heather on table B1.
