Tomato tips, pretty corn, and sun loving lookers!
Late Planting of Hanging Baskets Ready Saturday
On Saturday morning, we will be bringing out a very late planting of about fifty premium 10" mixed sun, as well as a limited number of Petunia and Trailing Begonia hanging baskets. We'll also be offering some large 14" sidehole hanging baskets with Ivy Geraniums that are just starting to show some colour. These baskets have over 35 plants in them and are only $49.99 each.

These well established, nearly one year old stock pots are in 10" and 12" pots for only $9.99!
Ornamental Corn - Grow Your Own 'Field of Dreams'
|Ornamental Corn (Field of Dreams)|
Looking for something new and a little different? Try out Ornamental Corn 'Field of Dreams'- a highly variegated green and white with touches of rose.
This variety can reach 4 to 5 feet tall and produces ears that are attractive after the season.
These plants will add colour and structure to large combination pots and accents in the landscape.
Tomato Tip: Build a Moat!
Many people came in this year with complaints regarding blossom end rot (black blotches at the bottom of tomatoes) on last year's crop.
In most cases, this is caused by a lack of water rather than a calcium deficiency, since most soils and potting mixes have an adequate calcium content.
Watering should be deep (up to 12") once fruit are set to golfball size in July-August. Build a moat and lay a hose into it. Also avoid regular irrigation moisture on the leaves, since this will promote early and late blight (brown blotches) on the leaves and fruit.
