It's hard to believe that spring has finally shown us a little warmth. It is quite welcome after a long, cold winter. It's officially time to plant cold tolerant annuals, cold tolerant vegetables and some perennials, trees and shrubs. (We'll still have to wait a few weeks for the warm-loving annuals and herbs).
Our greenhouses are alive with color and beautiful lush green plants! The annuals that you can safely plant outdoors now are: pansies, petunias, dianthus, snapdragons, alyssum and more.
Cold tolerant vegetables include broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, onions and more.
In our Nursery and Perennial Courtyard you will find beautiful fresh plants: berry bushes, strawberry plants, asparagus roots, rhododendrons, azaleas, creeping phlox, forsythia and so many more!
Our tomato and pepper plants are here, but please careful to protect them for a couple of weeks before planting them out in the garden.
