The Garden to open June 3rd for Picking!!

The Garden will be open for picking starting Wednesday June 3rd, with Peonies, Delphiniums, Iris, Astrantia and More.
Here are a few of my Peony Bouquets that are available in the cooler.
This one is Dark red and Light pink. This one has blue delphiniums, dark pink alstreomaria and dark red peonies.
This one is very colorful with Yellow, pink and red.
Here is one of the Irises that is available in the cutting garden. Looks smashing with the yellow and orange alstromaria. That bouquet sold before I took a picture of it.
Hope to see you for flower this coming week. Don't forget to bring a pail.

Dahlia cages

I hope everyone enjoyed our beautiful weekend weather. Hopefully this weekend will be just as nice. I am getting ready to plant my Dahlia tubers and other assorted annuals for the picking garden. Below is a picture of the plant cages a use for lots of my cutting plants. In particular, Dahlias, Delphiniums and Peonies. I cut them in half for the Peonies.
They are a must have for anyone growing Dahlias, especially if your plants get as large as mine. We have made up some extra this year, so I have them available to purchase. They are $5 each and well worth the investment to keep your Dahlias in Prime picking condition. This week we are still picking Lilac. Garden bouquets are on hold for a few days until I get some more flowers ready to pick. My plan is to open the cutting garden for May 27th.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

We finally have some flowers. Yeah!! Here are two bouquets that are in the cooler ready to find a new home. One is Purple, White and Green using Purple and Green Tulips, Purple columbine, white alstromeria, and Solamen's Seal. This one is a classic color combination of Blue, Pink and Yellow with Blue Bells, Bleeding hearts, alstromeria, and laurel.
Also available in the Cooler are Lilac stems. This is our early purple. I will be picking the white this week as well. We will also have a dark purple and striped purple by next week.

Hope to see you this weekend.

More Mother's Day Items

Here are some more wonderful gifts for Mother's Day. Luscious hanging baskets. The picture does not do them justice. Sun or Shade baskets to chose from. Fertilized with slow release to last the whole season. All you have to do is water. Maybe a cute potted Gerber would be perfect for Mom. Complete with
gift-wrapping and tag. There are also some Gerber Baskets to chose from.
These are such cheery flowers.
And YES!! We will have some Garden Bouquets. I will start picking Lilacs Tuesday or Wednesday. They will be available in the cooler to buy by the stem or in a Mixed Garden Bouquet.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
