Home About Calendar Events Spring Fall Winter

Welcome spring!

Welcome spring! Welcome color! And we are so thrilled to be soon welcoming our customers back to share in the beauty. We'll open the doors of our greenhouses on April 9 and remain open for the plant selling season through July 1. 

Now is the time to get your gardens ready for growth mode again. Clear out the old leaves and debris and rake up the soil just a bit. David always recommends working in organic matter such as manure and compost to your gardens and flower beds. If you don't have any soil amendments on hand, pick some up when you stop in at the farm--we have a variety to meet various needs and can of course give you guidance if you're not sure.

Although you should hold off on planting the more delicate plants until May, there are quite a few that are tolerant to cooler temps and are safe for April planting. We can direct you to the varieties that are most hardy and can tolerate the temperature dips that can still occur this month.

This month we've highlighted a couple of new plants we're carrying this year, but we do have many more, including a trailing Vinca, a new series of short Snapdragons called Snapshots, new Coleus and Begonia. 

We’re looking forward to opening our doors to the public for another wonderful season of sharing what we love to do.

Our doors (and greenhouses) will be open soon, and what a lovely sight it is! Color abounds with many varieties ready for April planting. Our staff can guide you on what's safe to plant when. Our first day of the new season will be Tuesday, April 9 and we'll continue to be open our regular hours, Tuesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.






We're carrying a fun new pepper plant this season, What makes this plant interesting is that only a small percentage, 1 out of 20, of the small peppers are hot. Pick them green, small or big, or leave on until they turn red. Their heat level is similar to that of a jalapeno with the mature reds having a sassy sweetness. 




This sweetly fragrant lavender variety is not only phenomenal, it's quite hardy! This cold-hardy lavender does not die back in the winter like other varieties and is notable for its disease resistance and heat and humidity tolerance. A must have for sunny gardens!
