Geraniums are a GREAT garden favorite and we grow them in all colors! Zonal Geraniums are grown from cuttings, filled with hearty double blossoms.

Wave petunias are an absolute favorite in any garden or planter! They love cool weather, survive the hot summer sun and are easy to grow! Pruning isn’t necessary, but sometimes promotes fuller growth. Keep them watered and fed, and your wave petunias will last all year through fall!

Growing a healthy vegetable garden is easy and rewarding! If you plant lettuce in 2-week intervals, you can enjoy fresh salads all summer long as the lettuce will continually grow!

Planting Tip #2 – Week of April 10
Perennials are plants that grow back each year and since they bloom at different times throughout the year, choose a wide variety that will perform at different times from Spring through Fall. To get the most from your perennial bed, start with a good planting mix and fertilizer for a healthy root system. We just received a truckload of flowering perennials, annuals and shrubs as well as healthy vegetable plants, fruit trees and more!
