Geraniums are a GREAT garden favorite and we grow them in all colors!  Zonal Geraniums are grown from cuttings, filled with hearty double blossoms. Seed geraniums are single bloomed- perfect for mass plantings.

Planting Tip #4 – Week of April 23

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!  For more planting tips, visit www.danchantzgreenhouse.com and shop at Dan Schantz Greenhouse & Cut Flower Outlet…. just off Lehigh Street in Allentown!

Planting Tip #3 – Week of April 16 

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!  Fruit trees are a great addition to a healthy garden and they also attract honey bees! Always remember to feed your plants throughout the growing season too!  For more planting tips, visit www.danschantzgreenhouse.com and shop at Dan Schantz Greenhouse & Cut Flower Outlet, just off Lehigh Street in Allentown.

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! Shop at Dan Schantz Greenhouse & Cut Flower Outlet, just off Lehigh Street in Allentown and for more planting tips, visit www.danchantzgreenhouse.com!

Planting Tip #1 – Week of April 2

Time to get pansies, perennials and shrubs planted as well as cool weather vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli and Brussel sprouts. Pea seeds and wave petunias can be planted as well! These plants can withstand a little frost but if temps dip below freezing, cover them with a cloth!
