Let your friends know, and if they don't already receive our newsletter, tell them to come in and sign up, they can let the ladies know and still receive the free herbs!

Pretty Lilies  


We have a great selection of Oriental and Asiatic Lilies still available.  The Lily Looks Series are a new generation of pot lilies which are grown genetically short (ranging from 12"-16") and have very high flower production.  Beautiful and brightly coloured, fragrant flowers are great for cutting and attracting hummingbirds.

Get Those Hummingbirds Hum-Hum-Humming!       


If you are interested in attracting hummingbirds and butterflies into your garden, try planting other perennials such as:


These all love a sunny location, which is another reason why they attract the butterflies and hummingbirds who love the sun to keep them warm!

Butterflies are attracted by scents where as hummingbirds are attracted to colours, and both of these little beauties like a nice quiet area where they can feast.

Fuchsia Hanging Baskets 


If you like Fuchsias and still have a space in the shade for a beautiful and unique hanging basket, then try growing one of the new golden variegated varieties--Red Sunrise, or Beryl's Jewel, both which have vibrant red and purple cascading flowers.

Perennial Giveaway!

This week we have completed the planting of our stock pots for the 2013 season, and will once again have some extra perennial plants to give away- one free 2.5" starter perennial for every $10 (before tax) that you spend!

Most likely the product won't last through the day again, so please remember it is only while quantities last!

Vegetable Series: Cherry Tomatoes
Introduction to Cherry Tomatoes

Cherry Tomatoes were given their name for a reason... Sweet, small, and cute, these fruits (yes, they're fruits!) are a perfect compliment to your salads, both in taste and colour.
