Camellias Just Arrived!
Just landed…fall-blooming Camellias. This handsome evergreen shrub features deep green glossy foliage and gorgeous rose-like flowers. Camellias enjoy morning sun and protection from the winter winds. Plant slightly above the existing soil line in well-drained acidic soil. Good cut flower.
Interested in growing your own tea? We also received Small Leaf Tea Camellias.
Starting to Come In . . . Spring Bulbs
More arriving soon!
Plant some joy! Plenty of beautiful choices and more on their way. These bulbs must be planted in fall for blooms next spring.
Fresh Lenten Roses Arrived!
Pretty, pretty hellebores! This wonderful evergreen perennial blooms in the off season, usually around March, and is a great choice for shade gardens. Enjoy the blooms in your garden or cut them to bring inside for flower arrangements once the seedheads have started to form.
Hellebores are long-lived plants that flower in an array of shades from pink and mauve to creamy green to dark plum. Plant in rich, well-drained organic soil in part sun to shade.
We currently have a fantastic selection of deciduous azaleas - both native azaleas and hybrid crosses - with gorgeous spring blooms. Many are fragrant too. Fall is a great time to plant them so they will WOW you next spring!
Cool Season Veggie Transplants
On the tables right now: Red & Green Lettuces, various Kales, Cabbage, Collards, Swiss Chard, Mustard, Kohlrabi, Baby Bok Choi, Beets, Broccoli, and Asian Greens - some in limited numbers but more plants are arriving regularly.
These veggies were sustainably grown on our Farm using organic fertilizers and organic pest control when needed.
Rhododendron & Azalea Just Landed
For fall planting - a fresh shipment of Rhododendron, evergreen Azaleas, Pieris, and Mountain Laurel just arrived! All of these will bring marvelous blooms next spring.
Plant them in part sun (ideally morning sun) in well-drained soil. These plants thrive with good drainage, so amend your soil by 50% at planting time, plant 2-3" above the existing soil line, and mound your backfill up even with the top of the plant's root ball.
|25% OFF Perennial Grasses & Carex|
|Perennial ornamental grasses add unique texture, year-round interest, and movement to the garden. They are available in a number of heights, shapes, colors, and textures. Even after the fall frost, grasses turn a soft straw color and provide structure and movement in the winter garden.|
Habitat for birds and pollinators is enhanced by planting native perennial grasses. The creation of meadow gardens has spiked interest in perennial grasses which are always an integral part of meadows designed by Piet Oudolf.

Most grasses look best when planted in full sun and well-drained soil. Grass should be cut back once a year in late winter before new growth starts.
In shadier spots consider Carex (sedges) to add beautiful color and texture to the shade garden. Carex can be cut back if it looks unattractive, but it recovers more slowly than grasses.
|The Seasons March Forward|
|FROM WILMA: |
Meteorologists consider September 1st as the beginning of the fall season. Labor Day unofficially signals the beginning of fall planting season. After a bit of rain and the promise of slightly cooler temperatures most of us look forward to being in the garden.
Now is the time to divide spring/early summer flowering perennials like iris, peonies, astilbe, daylilies, etc. Hosta can also be divided now as well as in spring. I have a special daylily that I plan to divide and share with family members.
Last evening, I took a walk down to the Farm greenhouses. In a nearby field there is lots of late-season color from plants like ironweed, Joe Pye weed, goldenrod, asters, and cardinal flower. Hummingbirds and pollinators were enjoying them, too. The Garden Center is well stocked with an array of fall-blooming perennials as well as much more - just in time for fall planting.
