A Great Selection

Spring 
Choose from a wonderful collection of annuals to get your yard looking great after the wet winter. Lacking in yard space or have a beautiful patio to showcase? We have plenty of hanging baskets and planters to choose from, both for sun or shade. Looking for that main staple piece or something that will give life to your garden year after year? You may find it in our outdoor perennial section.  Having trouble finding organic vegetable starts? We have you covered from Arugula to Zucchini. Our selection of annual and perennial herbs is sure to have something for everyone; you might even discover something new. Nothing beats the taste of fresh fruit; we carry an alluring selection of small fruiting shrubs and berries.

Summer
Looking for those last few fill ins? Stop by and see what is still available for that pop of colour or check out the perennials in all their glory. With things slowing down and clearing out inside the greenhouse, it gives us a chance to set up for growing our summer crops and allows us to get out into the cut flower garden. Stop in the farm store or visit us at the farmers market and look for our fresh basil, beans, tomatoes and fresh flower bouquets or call ahead and place an order. Have an event or a wedding to decorate for, ask staff about planter rentals.

Fall

Plants to support a Purpose

Plants to support a Purpose

We are all so lucky to live in a climate that allows for year round gardening…if you don’t mind getting a little wet, so don’t forget to check back in with us at the end of summer for your organic winter vegetable starts. Like spring, fall is a great time to do some planting. Stop by and choose from our selection of bush fruits and berries or flowering perennials. It’s a great way to get ahead for next spring. Looking for fall decorations? Out of our cut flower garden we’ll have ornamental corn, corn stalks and mini pumpkins for sale. Not quite ready to say goodbye to summer? Why not bring a taste of summer indoors with one of our windowsill herb gardens?

Winter
The cooler weather gives us a chance to get everything cleaned up and ready for next spring. Now is a good time to stop in or call us with your special requests for the upcoming season so we can plan accordingly. After a successful season is also the time to rest and reflect.

 

Cheers to you, our loyal customers!
