Current Events

  The pages of the calendar never stop turning and it seems like all of the sudden, August is upon us.  We have certainly had some heat this summer, but up until the last few weeks, we had been having some regular rains.  Those have dried up, so to speak, so now you are on your own as far as watering.  Early August is always a good time to give your planters some fertilizer.  At this point in the year, the plants have used a lot of the nutrients and minerals in your soil and they are at their largest size.  Any water soluble fertilizer will work.  Just follow the directions and do not over feed.  My last fertilizing hint is to not feed your plants when they are really dry.  Even if you water them lightly with some clear water and then wait a couple hours or overnight to fertilize.

We will open for the fall season on Monday, August 24 and beginning then, we will be open Monday through Saturday, 9 am until 4 pm and 11 am until 4 pm on Sunday.  You will find an assortment of cool weather loving plants that can perk up some of your planters and keep them going well into the fall.  It often helps to remove some of the more tired looking annuals and put in something fresh that will take the lower temperatures that are sure to be coming.  We also have our gorgeous mums, in addition to some reduced prices on one gallon perennials.  Finally, our Pick Your Own Cut Flowers will just be coming into color so you can choose and cut a custom bouquet for your home.  It doesn’t get any fresher than that!

Although memories of the spring season are still fresh in our mind, when we look back on the spring of 2020, we have many vivid memories of different circumstances and how often and drastically they changed.  At different points throughout this whole adventure, the future did not look very bright, but we tried our hardest to remain optimistic.  The support that we received from our many loyal customers made that so much easier and we sincerely thank all of you for continued business.
