New Pavers and Metal Tables

Renovation

Every year brings improvements and new additions to the greenhouse and garden areas. After more than twenty years of wear and tear, new metal tables were installed in the area between the perennial houses. The pavers between the tables and underneath them were redone as well. Galvanized metal tables have been added to one of the annual bedding plant houses too. The result is very pleasing, and will make keeping it clean much easier.

Anniversary

2018 is our 35th season growing hardy selections of strong and beautiful plants suitable for the rugged area we live in. To mark this milestone we invite you to celebrate with us Saturday, May 19th for a special '35th Anniversary Day' with food and special sales. For the young ones a Kids Corral with a Bounce Castle, a treasure hunt and face painting will be available. That way they can have some fun while allowing you time for some shopping.

Perennial Plant of the Year 2018

The Perennial Plant Association's 2018 Perennial Plant of the Year is Allium Millenium. Unlike many of the alliums out there, which bloom in the spring, Millenium blooms in the summer. It forms attractive 1 foot tall and wide clumps of narrow, glossy green deer and rabbit resistant leaves. These appealing clumps are topped with 2 inch rosy-purple flower heads for over one month in the summer. The blooms attract loads of butterflies and honeybees and don't produce viable seeds, which means that it is not invasive.
