The Travelocity gnome, everyone knows someone who needs this. Another could not resist purchase for the store.
I have brought in some truly beautiful rain chains from Ravenwood metalworks. We have 3 styles on sale through May as an extension of the Homeshow Specials. You must see these if your considering rainchains. They are lighter than the cast iron and will not rust. They come in 53 styles and range in character from sophisticated to whimsical.
The top of the wall has been planted with nerine bulbs, and the start of my Daylily demonstration garden. I should have over 80 named cultivars by June. Many will be cutting edge breeding from the US, including a number of 2010 introductions.
Does this look like a pond yet? Look for a spectacular waterfall, and a lovely pool sometime this summer.
Sadly our little goat shed, and my dreams of chickens are gone. The sheds roof and back corner were rotting and unsafe. Repairing these defects, replacing some posts, and the roof led to stripping down the building, which led to....a Greenhouse plan!
Here is where we took out the rotting back wall. Where there once was rot and sag, will be windows and a back door.
Instead of a fence, and chickens, we have a potting bench for customer use, and a greenhouse for me. Now thats some daylily dreaming in the making.
These 1400 or so daylily seedlings started life in my garage. I will have over 3000 unique daylily seedlings by summers end. I guess the "daylily farm" is next years project.
These are a great too. They are completely biodegradable and last as long as plastic. They are made from the waste chaff when rice is processed. The natural glues in the rice hold the pots together and the added color is safe.These are just way too cool.
Our Malay pots are a best value item, they come in 6 beautiful colors, and an incredible price point. The set of 4 is on sale thru May just $49.99 or purchase seperately starting at just $6.99.
Yes!, we have the face pots again this year. Have some fun with these. They have been a very popular gift.
We have lots of perennials in stock, and more bedding coming in all the time. It's still a little chilly.
The plant of the month this month is the Pearl bush. When it buds out the unopened blooms look like a string of pearls.
The demo beds are in full of tulips. I am very pleased with the result of last years planting and how well they stood up to howling wind storms. I expected them to be flattened but they remained as cheery as ever.
We tidied up our little side entrance with Urban Oasis letters my Mom painted, and a new tippy pot display.
Happy Spring, come check out our progress, and don't forget if you need gardening advice we pride ourselves in great one on one service.
