| Gen Z Gardeners Create Moon Garden|
|FROM WILMA: Several of you, along with some of our staff, have created ponds and other water features. Kira and Lila (sisters), who you may recognize as cashiers at the Garden Center, constructed a "moon" themed water garden. With the help of a friend they created a somewhat crescent-moon shaped pond with light-colored rocks, pale-colored water plants, and an adjacent planting of all white flowers. It is inspiring to see young people interested in water gardening as well as other forms of gardening.|
My water feature consists of a few floating plants in a decorative leakproof container. I do have my eye on a tropical water lily to purchase and enjoy for the remainder of the summer season. They are now on sale for 50% Off.
Potted plants like bananas, cannas, colocasia (elephant ears), agapanthus, hibiscus, and large houseplants add a tropical feel to patios, water gardens, and other outdoor living areas. There was a new shipment of koi earlier this week and a shipment of tropical plants should be here by Friday.

|Great Native Shrub Selection In Stock Now|
|Love native plants? Love attracting birds and pollinators to your garden? Native plants are nourishing to native creatures who have depended on them for centuries, however their native habitats are shrinking at an alarming rate. These beautiful additions to your garden help rebuild native habitats.|
Two favorites that are blooming now: Clethra (Summersweet) and Smooth Hydrangea (Annabelle-type). Clethra’s white flowers are deliciously fragrant and the blooms of Hydrangea are so lovely in the summer garden.
|LINKS to two BIRD-FRIENDLY Plant Lists HANDOUTS from our Bird-Friendly Gardening Workshop held on July 25. We're sorry but there was a recording glitch, so we cannot share a recording of the workshop. Our thanks to the presenter Tom Tribble of the Blue Ridge Audubon Society and to all those who attended the workshop. It was inspirational!|
For those inspired to add native plants to your yard - we have a great supply of native shrubs and perennials in stock now.

Fall Vegetable Gardens - Right now we are getting vegetable transplants started on our Propagation Farm in preparation for fall gardening. You can grow your own transplants from seed (we have lots of seeds!) or wait a few weeks and buy transplants from us.
Fall gardens include many wonderful vegetables like: onions, peas, cabbage, radishes, beets, rutabagas, spinach, turnips, mustard, kohlrabi, arugula, radicchio, lettuce, mache, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, collards, and Swiss chard. Collards and kale are said to taste sweeter following the first frost.
Many of these we will have available as transplants in a few weeks. We will be posting a list of our our Fall Cool Season transplants shortly under Resources on our website.

|Unsolicited Seeds from China|
|USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is aware that people across the country have received unsolicited packages of seed from China in recent days. APHIS is working closely with the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection and State departments of agriculture to prevent the unlawful entry of prohibited seeds and protect U.S. agriculture from invasive pests and noxious weeds.|
Anyone who receives an unsolicited package of seeds from China should immediately contact their State plant regulatory official or APHIS State plant health director. Please hold onto the seeds and packaging, including the mailing label, until someone from NC Department of Agriculture or APHIS contacts you with further instructions. Do not plant seeds from unknown origins.
