Greenhouse Goodies

Hello everyone!  All of us at Garden Supply hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday with your families this past weekend.  We are so excited down at the garden center as we gear up for our busiest time of year.  Truck loads of new plants are arriving daily and the nursery is full to bursting with beautiful blossoms.  Stop by for a visit and see for yourself!

Annual bedding plants are now in stock.  We have tons of plants to choose from.  And although it’s turned hot these last few days, keep in mind that the last scheduled frost of the year is April 15th, still a week away.  Look for these friendly reminder posts while selecting your plants.  Our experts are on hand with advice and suggestions to get you through these last few cool nights.

For a larger flowering form in a shrub/tree variety, why not check out the elegant Tulip Magnolia.  Blooming now, this little charmer is sure to make it’s mark in your garden landscape.

This stunning hybrid has deep burgundy tulip-shaped flowers that appear in early spring before its 4- to 6-inch-long leaves unfurl. It makes an excellent small specimen tree, growing to 20 feet tall. It can be topped to form a hedge, and works well in large containers.

And for news from the Greenhouse, here’s another peek at our collection of Penny McAllister spring folk art figurines.

Penny McAllister’s whimsical and sweet collections bring new charm to folk art.  The sewing bug bit Penny at the tender age of 5.  Nearly 50 years later, the former elementary school librarian has woven her passion for folk art into a dream occupation, making paper mache creations full of wit and whimsy.

Here are a few other goodies that caught my eye this week in the Greenhouse.

What wonderful home decor items and gifts are to be found here.  And don’t forget, We offer free gift wrapping and we have gift certificates available in any dollar amount.

Thanks for spending a little time with us today.  Hope to see you back here soon for more snippets from the garden.
