This Month at Ward's
In spite of the snow, it’s March! Days stay brighter longer.
Step in from the white stuff. Our tropical greenhouse always has ferns, easy-care foliage, orchids, violets and cacti to satisfy your need for green plus pinks, yellows, purples and reds! Come soak up the oxygen and maybe choose a new favorite for your home!
Flowering spring bulbs, kalanchoe, herbs, hardy primrose and hellebore are available now! In late May, transplant the primrose and hellebore under deciduous shade for flowers next spring.
Garden seeds and seed-starting supplies fill the back wall of the garden center. We have organic and heirloom seeds for 2023 planting from High Mowing Organic Seeds, Renee’s, Botanical Inters, Hudson Valley Seed and Turtle Tree seed from Copake NY! Remember peas can be planted as soon as the soil is workable.
The larger greenhouse is now filled with flowering spring plants, new gardening gear, furniture samples and new containers for 2023. Time to visit and soak up some atmosphere and dream your own garden plans. By late March, we will have pansies ready to brighten a sunny entrance during the day.
Take advantage of our Spring Ahead Sale and save on essential gardening tools like trowels, garden forks, spades, hoes, garden gloves, pruners, tarps, garden hose, scissors, twine, gloves, containers and more! Ask us if you aren’t sure what tool fits your needs. We garden, too.
Continue encouraging life outdoors by placing bird feeders near windows where you can see our feathered visitors during the last cold days of March. We have feeders and a range of seed and suet to appeal to a wide variety of winter birds plus a special price on 40lb bags of Black Oil Sunflower bird seed! When nights are above freezing, it will be time to bring feeders indoors (to discourage bears) and put up bluebird houses!
And don't forget, we have gifts for gardeners and gifts for everyone. Or you can order a gift card and your recipient will get exactly the right thing!
