Save the date!  Our first fall Monarch Festival will be held Saturday, September 12 at 10 AM here at the garden center. Come celebrate these marvelous creatures and learn all about their preferred food, habitat and migratory patters. Bill Ruppert, renowned plant expert from St. Louis, MO will be here to lead this casual, fun-filled program. Plus we will have plant raffles, special Saturday-only sales and refreshments.

Summer is in full swing  at the garden center. And we’ve plenty of sizzling summer specials to fill any of your garden needs. Annuals of any size are buy one, get one free. Choose from lantana, vinca, black & blue salvia, petunias, geraniums and more. Vegetable plants are also buy one, get one free. Perennials are still a swell deal at 20% off. Cone-flowers, black-eyed Susan, Russian sage ,coreopsis and bee balm are great choices for summer time color. Shrubs like hardy hibiscus, rose of Sharon, butterfly bush and crape myrtle are just beginning to bloom.

If your flowers are looking a little bedraggled after all the rain we’ve had, trim them back about one third of their size and feed with a good blooming plant food. Flowers need food to bloom well and heavy rains leach nutrients, especially from pots and hanging baskets. We prefer Espoma organic plants foods because they are easy to use and slow release with no salts that can burn in hot weather.

Call us are better yet stop by with any gardening questions. We know you have choices and we very much appreciate your business.
