Greetings!

Even though Spring seems slow in it's arrival and the snow line is still very visible, we continue right on schedule with our seeding, propagating, transplanting and set-up, including opening more areas to the public as we bring more crops out to the retail tables. Each week there is more and more to browse through as we set up the crops that are ready to sell, but this does not necessarily mean that it is time to plant.  So if you are buying plants early, please ensure you are taking the proper measures to protect them from the low night time temperatures.
 
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
The Greenery Family
Plenty of Petunias!
 
Our full selection of Trailing and Mounding Petunias have been set up on Tables C9 to C15.
 
Presenting the newest STARS of our show:
  • Constellation Gemini & Constellation Virgo: New "Night Sky" type petunias with more consistent "stars' and a new colour in Gemini.
  • Sanguna: Blue Improved, Hot Rose, Lipstick Improved, Rose Vein. Sweet Pink, White Vein & Yellow- complete our favourite series of true trailing petunias.
  • Surfinia Trailing Red: A brand new, true red petunia that is mildew resistant and supposed to hold it's colour all summer long.
  • Supercal: Bordeaux, Cinnamon, Crimson Red, French Vanilla- some new exciting colours to the Supercal family.  A cross between Calibrachoas (Million Bells) and Petunias, gives great performance all summer long.

  • QT: Blue, Orange, Pink Ice, Red, White & Yellow- may be the most compact petunias yet.
