|10% OFF PERENNIALS!*|
Celebrate Perennial Gardening Month & National Pollinator Month with pretty new plants! Shop our fabulous selection of both sun and shade perennials, Toe Ticklers, pollinator plants, native plants, and perennial grasses. We've received multiple perennial shipments this week and we want them all!
Nurture nature and yourself by planting gardens that invite wildlife. Pollinator gardens are full of life and color PLUS they provide food for bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and caterpillars. It's incredibly delightful to watch all the buzzy-fluttery action that pollinator plants bring to your landscape while simultaneously providing much-needed habitat for pollinators. Native plants nourish our native bee populations, so definitely include natives in your plan.
Our staff loves to encourage planting for pollinators, and they are very knowledgeable and eager to help. So don't be shy. Ask us!
Check out our Certified Pollinator Habitat for inspiration. It is located right behind the Garden Shop, and the different flowers are labeled so they are easy to ask for in the Perennial Department.
*Sale excludes mini-conifers, vines, butterfly bushes, & shrubs. Thru June 30.

|Can I Plant Trees & Shrubs Now?|
|YES! Don’t let summertime slow down your gardening. Plants in containers can be planted anytime – unless the ground is frozen in winter. Some of us are just getting started planting for the season and imagine your garden by the end of the summer if you keep adding pretty plants!|
Just like other times of the year, you’ll need to be attentive to watering newly planted trees & shrubs the whole first year. Water 2-3 times per week DEEP to the bottom of the root ball – using your common sense. If the ground is wet a few inches down, wait to water, and if the ground is dry then you need to be watering more often.
So plant - 'cause plants make people happy!
|FROM WILMA: “It is addictive” (a reference to gardening) is an excerpt from a text my friend, Donna, sent recently. She and I communicate frequently, and many conversations involve gardening. Gardening goes beyond growing food. It is therapeutic as it provides exercise, endurance, observation, hope, and connections between people.|
A topic this season is what did not survive the winter/spring freezes. Donna lives in northern Kansas and also lost plants. She, like many of us, has that “garden addiction” and is replanting. There were a few surprises as some plants are recovering - I had almost given up on my fig but spotted new growth a few days ago.
Herbs were really affected by the freezes. I lost some of my thymes, sages, lavenders, and of course, rosemary. Tanya is restocking herbs as they become available, and we are growing some at our Farm greenhouses. Basil is a tender annual that likes really warm weather – there is an informative article about basil varieties in The Mountain Gardener Newsletter.

|Worried about winter damaged plants? |
it's true - staff members are seeing new growth on some of their plants/branches that they thought were dead, so remain cautious about digging up and discarding any plants. Warmer soil and warmer June air temperatures help promote new growth on plants that appear to be dead, plus new growth 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.
