10" Mixed Hanging Baskets!

Greetings!

The planting of 10" mixed sun hanging baskets will be available on Friday morning at 10am! These little beauties have 15 different plants in them and are starting to show some nice colour. You will find them on table A1 north.

These are the traditional late planting of hanging baskets that we plant and hang once we have the space in the back.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Mosquito Trouble?
 
We have had some good feedback regarding lemon scented plants helping to keep those pesky mosquitoes at bay. Why not try planting some around your patios and decks to see if it works for you too?

Mix some Citronella or Lemon scented Geraniums into your planters or borders and perhaps the mosquitoes won't seek refuge in those plantings. Lemon Grass, and Lemon Verbena are also great options.
