Assorted Pansies and Violas
A full selection of Pansies, Primulas, Bellis, Ranunculus, Erysimum, Cool Wave Pansies and Pot Carnations is now available in selling section 'D' and 'E'.

Choose from tables full of over 100 varieties of Pansies and Violas in shades of yellow, blue, purple, red, orange and many bicolour varieties. 

The 4" potted Primulas are starting to show some great colour, and are ready for your Spring planter or planting into your garden bed if you have workable ground now.

Read on to see more details on our selection! 
 
Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Cool Wave Pansies

Cool Wave Pansies are the earliest to bloom in the Spring, and the blooms hold up well in rain and weather better than the large flowered types.

These trailing pansies are the most vigorous and prostrate of any spreading pansy and make unique baskets, mixed combos, and great ground covers.

Some exciting varieties in this series are Blueberry Swirl, Morpho, Lemon Surprise, Raspberry and Sunshine & Wine, as well as new to the line up this season: Fire, Raspberry Swirl and Strawberry Swirl.

There are some lovely bright coloured 10" hanging baskets which contrast beautifully with the Cool Wave Pansies as well as some 12" side hole type hanging baskets of Cool Wave Pansies available for some great early frost-tolerant colour.

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" to 12" bright colour and earth tone plastic pots. These are great as a spring gift, or to add colour and fragrance to your entryway.

Cool Cole Crops

We have a good selection of early hardy veggies and herbs available on table C-6. Choose from young bedding packs of Cole crops like Broccoli, Kale, Cabbage, and Kohlrabi, as well as some 2.5" potted Lettuces that are nearly ready to eat.

Don't forget we have a great selection of herbs which can be placed in a bright location on a windowsill in the kitchen for easy fresh picking during these cooler early spring days.  As the weather continues to improve, you will be able to plant them outdoors in planters or the garden.

Seed Geraniums
 
As temperatures seem to be slowly increasing and the weather is becoming more agreeable, we continue to stay right on schedule with our set up.  A full selection of early Seed Geraniums can be found on table B10 temporarily for now.

Also there are Early 5.5" Potted Tomatoes 

We have a very nice selection of early 5.5" potted tomato plants for all of you who are lucky enough to have that back yard greenhouse or cold frame.  Choose from Beefsteak varieties, Cherry types, orange, red, yellow, and Grape types.

There will also be some 'newer' varieties such as 'Chocolate Sprinkles' (striped Cherry), 'Red Racer' (cocktail type), 'Mountain Magic' (blight resistant cocktail type) and 'Kitchen Minis (compact bush for lower light).  These can be found on table B9 for only $4.99 each.
