The Greenery is Back in Action!

Greetings!

Even though it doesn't look like it, Spring just has to be right around the corner, and we are ready for it!

We will be opening Friday, March 1st, with operating hours 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm.

With a great variety of early hardy plants, herbs, veggies, and gardening supplies, we can help get you ready for the new season as soon as it is warm enough!  And until then we have tropicals and succulents just waiting for a new home.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Lots in Store

Choose from our first planting of Pansies and Violas, in every shade imaginable, as well as a good selection of all other great Spring plants like Primulas, Ranunculus, Bellis (English Daisies), Myosotis (Forget-me-nots), Pot Carnations, Erysimum (Wallflowers), Daffodils, Hyacinth, Snowdrops and Tulips.

These are all great for making an early Spring planter for a sheltered outdoor location when daytime temperatures are consistently above freezing and the nights become a little milder.

We also have to let you know how fantastic the Pot Carnations are looking right now, showing some early colour and having such great fragrance reminding us that Spring is hopefully coming!

These could be classified as an indoor to outdoor plant, enjoying the beauty and fragrance now indoors and then planting them into your container or landscape later when the weather permits.
   
 
Get Prepared for Perennials

For all you perennial enthusiasts, besides beautiful, blooming Hellebores, the Pulmonaria is also showing some nice colour on the varieties Silver Bouquet, Raspberry Splash, Shrimps on the Barbie, and Dark Vader.

We have a wonderful selection of the Belarina series of Primula this year, including Cream, Nectarine, Buttercup, Cobalt Blue, Amethyst Ice, Valentine and Pink Ice.  These have fully double, fragrant flowers and are hardy to zone 5 or -29C.

Another great, drought tolerant indoor/outdoor plant is the Rex Begonia. A full selection of this extremely versatile plant is available in 5" and 6" pots.  In addition to our usual selection this season we have some exciting named varieties including Fedor, Flamenco, Red Bull, Red Kiss, Red Tango, and Zumba.

Also check out the assortment of beautiful Cyclamen, with flowers that come in shades of pink, red or white. Even the foliage is attractive, having silver marbling on the top sides of the leaves.

These make excellent house plants to start, requiring very little care while providing unique blooms for weeks. Later, they can also be moved outside to a cooler, bright filtered light location.
