|Charmed by David Austin Roses|
“What Meryl Streep is to acting is what David Austin is to roses.”
- Jill Brooke/flowerpowerdialy.com
It’s easy to fall in love with David Austin roses! Their graceful English country garden look enchants us with a variety of flower colors, flower forms, and fragrances. Both the shrub forms and the climbers lend an elegant air to any garden. Plus they’re perfect for arranging into bouquets for indoor enjoyment.
David Austin started breeding exquisite English Roses in 1961, and today the goal remains the same..."to try to develop the healthiest roses possible without compromising their beauty, fragrance, grace and most importantly, their charm." It takes about 13 years to breed a rose from pollinating the seed to ready-for-sale.
David Austin Roses is located on their family farm in Shropshire, England. Although David Austin Senior passed away in 2018, his son David Austin Junior and now two of his grandsons are carrying on this wonderful rose breeding tradition.
Add some beauties to your own landscape. Check our rose inventory here - including our collection of David Austin roses, climbing roses, hybrid tea & grandiflora roses, floribunda roses, landscape roses, and Knock Out & Drift roses.

|Plant Your Veggie Garden!|
We’re past the Mother’s Day frost date, so let’s get our summer veggie gardens planted! The flavor of a homegrown tomato on a summer sandwich is unrivaled. Homegrown peppers taste a lot different than grocery store peppers. Fresh-picked veggies are a revelation if you’ve never planted them before, and if you garden every year - you are looking forward to the treat of freshly harvested vegetables.
We have beautiful veggie transplants coming down from our Farm all the time. If you don’t see it today, you might find it here tomorrow. Shop for tomatoes, hot & sweet peppers, eggplant, summer squash, winter squash, pumpkins, onions, cucumbers, strawberries, asparagus and more. Tomato cages and plant supports are available - please ask for help if you don't see them.
Garden seeds can be sown directly into the soil now. Beans, squash, pumpkins, watermelon, okra, zinnias, cosmos, and sunflowers love to be sown directly into the garden. Vegetable & flower seeds are located at the front of our Garden Shop.
Just arrived - new shipment of sweet potatoes! Cultivars include: O'Henry, Murasaki, Beauregard, Centennial, and White Yam.
|We sell four different families of hydrangeas and ALL of them are wonderful garden plants. This article focuses on big leaf hydrangea, Hydrangea macrophylla, usually the first hydrangea to bloom in the landscape.|
The flowers are amazing! Most of our big leaf hydrangea are the newer re-blooming varieties, so even when we get a late frost your hydrangea should still produce flowers. When to prune? If needed, prune big leaf hydrangeas just after their first flower flush in the spring. If you trim them later in the year you will cut off next year’s flower buds.
Plant big leaf hydrangeas in rich, well-drained soil and ideally, plant in a morning sun location with protection from the hot midday sun. Mulch to retain moisture in the root zone (don’t let the mulch touch the trunk of the plant). For more “pow”, plant hydrangeas in groups of 3 to 5 to enjoy the extra drama and cooling colors they bring to the summer garden.
Big leaf hydrangeas usually bloom blue or pink depending on the soil pH - which can be manipulated. If you want blue flowers, add Soil Acidifier to the soil around your shrub. If you want pink blooms, add Garden Lime to the soil. Hydrangea blooms are long lasting with the color mellowing over time. Deciduous.
Get ready for summer. Shop our inspiring big leaf hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) selection located in our shade house.

We all love flowers - get some color happening in your yard! Annual flowers offer color all season long. Our selection includes annuals for sun and for shade, so get planting!
Annuals are located alongside the Garden Shop, inside the greenhouse, and on tables below the Pollinator Garden. Hanging baskets are in multiple locations. Fuchsia baskets are hanging in the shade pergola area.
We have plenty of deciduous trees in stock now. They offer so many benefits including shade, blooms, fall color, and textural interest.

Hedges help define the garden border but they do so much more. Hedges help create a feeling of privacy and enclosure in your yard, they serve as a backdrop for flowering shrubs and perennials, and hedges have the ability to block out unwanted views.
Some of our favorite evergreen hedge plants include: Green Giant Arborvitae, Degroot's Spire Arborvitae, Emerald Green Arborvitae, Yoshino Cryptomeria, Schip Laurels, Prague Viburnum, a variety of Hollies, Hick's Yew and more. Boxwoods, Japanese Hollies, Inkberry Hollies (native), and shorter evergreens work well for lower hedges.
You can create a hedge with multiples of the same plant or mix up your evergreens for a variety of textures. Mix in deciduous trees and shrubs to heighten interest. If your goal is to block a certain view, be sure to strategically place evergreens in that section of your hedge for year-round satisfaction.
New water and bog plants arrived including some natives like lobelia, swamp sunflower, southern blue flag iris, buttonbush, swamp rose mallow, scarlet rose mallow, soft rush, green arrow arum, lizard's tail, duck potato, marsh marigold, spatterdock, and more.
Water gardens are so nurturing for wildlife. Have you considered adding even a small water garden to your property? We have pretty ceramic and plastic containers available!
Worried about winter damaged plants?
The soil is finally beginning to warm up. Warm soil will encourage plant growth - so be patient and wait a little longer before digging up and discarding any plants. As the soil warms, new growth may be pushed out on plants that appear to be dead, or may be pushed out from the roots (especially crape myrtle, hydrangea, and fig roots). This video was produced after the deep freeze at Christmas and discusses what to to look for.
