Unfortunately, the blog software is preventing us from posting pics here today so let me just tell you about our events, and the plants.
First, yes, we are restocked up on Mini Poinsettias - this cute little minis are the perfect decor for your home or office, and they make a great little gift for Holiday parties, co-workers and friends and neighbors this time of year.
Also back, we have gorgeous Pink Quills, in mini pots. The beautiful pink quill will produce a purple flower that smells like cinnamon.
Customers ask us all the time about whether this is a good time to plant and the answer is a resounding yes ! This time of year hosts great perennials for the garden that enjoy our cooler weather, and they are much needed nectar to bees and butterflies - Almond Bush, Delphinium, Foxgloves, Gaura, Lavender and Herbs. And don't forget our special Maple Leaf geraniums.
We have new Mini Succulents and Cacti, along with some shade/house loving tropicals such as Calathea and Philodendron.
Don't forget our Passion Vines - the Lady Margaret especially, is just blooming her heart out.
So, here's where you can catch up this weekend:
