Mmm... Strawberry Heaven
|Seascape Everbearing Strawberries|
It's time to get your Strawberries! The backordered varieties have now rooted in so we have set up the full selection of Jumbo 6-packs for $2.59 each.
We have the same great selection as last season, including five June bearing varieties: All Star, Annapolis, Honeoye, Kent, and Totem.
We also have five Everbearing day-neutral varieties: Eversweet, Tri-Star, Hecker, Seascape, and Albion, which is a new variety that is supposed to do well in our climate.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Start Stuffing Those Baskets!
We will have our full selection of Basket Stuffers set up by Saturday morning, including some exciting new varieties. Expanding the new Lobularia (Alyssum Silver Stream) are three new colours: Lavender, White, and Summer (creamy yellow).
|Lobularia 'Lavender', 'White', and 'Summer' (Cream)|
Adding to the popular Chocolate Cosmos are two new varieties: Spellbound, which is very fragrant with maroon coloured blossoms, and Dark Secret, with deep chocolate brown blossoms.
|A new twist on an old favourite, we offer three unique Nasturtiums: Aloha Cream Red, Aloha White and Red (which have bicolour flowers), and Flamethrower Burgundy which heats up your baskets and planters with serrated, open-type flowers.|

As the weather continues to improve, our trailing and mounding Petunias have been set up. New this year in the trailing section, which you will find on tables C7 through C12, are: Blanket Lemon Glow and Blanket Rose Star with smaller (1.5"-2") flowers but a vigorous growth habit reaching 3'-4'. Cascadia Rim Magenta is dazzling with deep magenta flowers rimmed with cream white edges.
For the mounding type Petunias, lots of new dark colours were introduced this season to compete with Black Velvet. Varieties include Surprise Midnight Cowboy, Crazytunia Black Mamba, and Crazytunia Mahogany Queen.

Your Bushes Don't Need to be Boring
Back for a second season in a row is a great selection of starter size bushes in 4.5" square pots for $6.99 each. These should be arriving this weekend from Van Belle Nursery in Abbotsford.
|Hydrangea - Next Generation Pistachio|
These small bushes offer a perfectly affordable way to try a few different types of flowering shrubs, many of which will size up in quite a short time. There are 50 varieties, including 6 types of Butterfly Bush, 15 types of Hydrangea, and others like Cotoneaster, Euonymus, Morden Roses, Spirea, Potentilla, Viburnum, and Weigela.
We are really excited to be carrying the 'Next Generation' series of Hydrangeas, which are a re-blooming type that flower on new and old wood, so your worries about heavy winter damage affecting the summer performance of your hydrangeas are over!
