|Special of the Week|
$9.74 – 1 gallon
This winter bloomer cheers up January with its bright yellow flowers. The shrubs are fountain shaped with green arching branches, and is also known as January Jasmine. They are often used as a groundcover on banks or allowed to trail over retaining walls. With a support structure, Winter Jasmine can also be trained as a vine. Grows to 4’ tall x 3-6’ wide as a shrub, and can grow to 10-15’ tall as a supported vine. It spreads when the trailing branches root into the ground. To “recondition” overgrown shrubs, cut back to 18-24” in early spring after they have flowered. Plant in full sun to part sun in well drained moist soil. Zone 6-9. Limit 3 per customer while supplies last thru Thursday, Oct. 18.

|FROM WILMA: The name sounds delicate, but Pansies are tough, large-flowered hybrids derived from smaller-flowered Violas (commonly called Johnny Jump-ups). The name pansy comes from the French word “pensee” which means thought or remembrance. The flowers tend to nod forward and some blotches of color look like a face in deep thought.|
There is much folklore associated with Violas and Pansies, from medicinal uses to Shakespearean quotes. In Disney’s movie Alice in Wonderland there is a chorus of singing pansies. Google the names and find other fun facts about them. Untreated Pansy flowers and leaves are edible in salads, desserts, and as cake decorations.
Pansies prefer cool weather and now is the optimum time to plant outside. The starts we transplanted a few weeks ago are ready to go into your garden. They also make great fall/winter container plants. Blooms usually last throughout winter and into late spring. In extremely cold weather they will disappear for a bit, but usually re-bloom as temperatures rise, giving a late-winter splash of color. It is important to keep these and all plants well-watered until established, and during dry spells.
