Petunias & Seed Geraniums
 
Assorted Wave Petunia
As temperatures seem to be slowly increasing and the weather is becoming more agreeable, we continue right on schedule with our set up.  A full selection of early Seed Geraniums can be found on table C6 temporarily for now.

The first planting of Wave Petunias in 2.5" is available on table C7.  While the 4 pack Petunias are completely set up and in location on tables C16 through to C20.

Assorted Strawberry Plants
Strawberry Plants

Our Jumbo 6 packs of Strawberry plants are now ready and can be found on table D16.

  • All Star
  • Cavendish
  • Honeoye
  • Kent and Totem

As well as Ever-Bearing day neutral varieties such as 

  • Eversweet
  • Tri-Star
  • Seascape
  • Albion
  • and new this season- Sweetkiss which produces super sweet, extra juicy fruits.  This variety is available in 2.5" pots.
Bushel & Berry Selection

Bushel & Berry bushes (previously called BrazelBerries) are a collection of berry varieties that offer ornamental qualities as well as amazing edible fruits on small stature bushes.  The idea is that you can plant these plants in containers on your patio, balcony or anywhere in your landscape, requiring minimal care and allowing for a rewarding and easy harvest.

Bushel & Berry
'Raspberry Shortcake'
Bushel & Berry
'Jelly Bean'

Try out Bushel & Berry 'Raspberry Shortcake'--a true dwarf, thornless raspberry plant that produces sweet fruits. Or try 'Blueberry Glaze', 'Peach Sorbet', 'Pink Icing' or 'Jelly Bean'--four super compact blueberry plants that have incredible ornamental qualities while producing beautiful plump berries.  'Blueberry Perpetua' offers TWO crops of delicious berries, the first in mid-summer and the second in the fall, while also offering beautiful foliage that turns deep reds and greens in the winter.

'Blackberry Baby Cakes', is a dwarf thornless bush reaching only 3' to 4' in height and width that produces large, sweet, juicy berries.

Bushel & Berry 'Peach Sorbet'

Hardy Figs are now available! Choose from 'Chicago Hardy', 'Desert King' or 'Olympian'.  Even though these three cool season varieties are hardy to zone 5 or 6 we find they are best grown in containers in order to extend their growing season and allow their fruits to fully mature.  They will bear medium to extra large fruit on eventual 8' to 10' trees.
Early Shrubs 

There will be a selection of shrubs available this weekend as well.  Choose from Rhododendron Azalea 'Rosy Lights', 'Mandarin Lights', 'Lemon Lights', Rhododendron Marjatta 'Haaga' and 'Hellikki' or Rhododendron 'Nova Zembla'.  A selection of French Lilacs are also available, including 'Charles Joy', 'Ludwig Spaethe' and 'Sensation' as well as a hardier, earlier blooming Canadian introduction Syringa (Lilac) hyacinthaflora 'Pocahontas'.
