What's Happening In-Store
We're counting down to Hanukkah, Christmas & Kwanzaa!
Our greenhouses are filled with holiday decorating suggestions with lights, garlands, ornaments and colorful tableware with natural "plant themes".
Cyclamen, miniature cypress, and Norfolk pines fill the tables and will bring some welcome color to your indoors. Christmas traditional poinsettias are now available and we have unusual color choices, too! More flowering plants can be found in our Houseplant greenhouse.
Want to try creating your own Kissing Balls or Boxwood Tree? We have pre-cut bundles of greenery for you to use. See the link below for 'how-to' tips and feel free to stop at the craft desk for advice or moral support!
Ready for bulb blooms indoors? We have Amaryillis, those bold trumpet shaped flowers in red, pink, white and variegation, too. Or maybe you prefer Paperwhites (narcissus that bloom without a cold treatment)? Fragrant white blooms burst out of these small bulbs. Both Amaryllis and Paperwhites bloom roughtly 6 weeks after planting. Plus, we have a few already potted up and starting to grow!
Select your fresh-cut Christmas tree, wreaths. Then, peruse the dozens of other fresh-cut evergreen boughs and plant material to use in outdoor containers and windowboxes or as garlands along railings and archways. Please call for pricing and specific availability.
In the garden, you can still protect your valuable plantings from winter pests like drying, icy winds; chewing rodents; and snow glare. Use burlap to create seasonal fences for glare and hardware cloth for sturdy fencing around young trees. When weather is dry and temperatures are above freezing, you'll want to use a preventive spray of liquid copper fungicide to kill overwintering fungal diseases, especially on fruit trees.
Most of our trees and shrubs are ready for winter. If you want a living tree indoors for the Christmas holiday, dig your planting hole now. Learn more at "Evergreens Indoors?" below.
Terrariums make great gifts and can be started now, too. See more information below!
And don't forget, we have gifts for gardeners and gifts for everyone. From puzzles to stationery, birdfeeders and natural soaps--socks, scarves, kithenware--even Melissa & Doug toys; you'll find a gift that's sure to please. Or you can order a gift card and your recipient will get exactly the right thing!
