2020 Plant Ideas

Hi Everyone! I am here among horticulture  professionals from all segments of our industry to connect with educators, landscapers, researchers, retailers, suppliers, and people “who frankly just get excited about plants”.*  I am here to make an even greater impact on our Garden Center and Landscape Divisions.

Cultivate 19 is the largest all industry trade show and conference for the horticulture industry. WE are here to research, learn, and network. Our success is your success; that is why I am here to research new plants for our changing environment, learn new improved ways, network with other horticultural professionals and come back and share with you.

Here are some pics I took yesterday– hope you enjoy them. Some are new plant variety!

Is it time to Refresh Your Shrubs?

If you are looking for some new shrubs or trees, why not stop by and check out our hill that has many different ones growing. You may see a color, texture or shape that brings you joy. Also, you may get an idea About trimming.

We have stock of trees and bushes and they are quite impressive. I took some pics to help you see how amazing new shrubs can be.  They give the yard such a refresh look.

We offer Landscape Design Services and Installation Services, in case you need a hand.

The Honeysuckle Scent

What is the fragrance coming through my open window. It rained during the night, so the plants have had their showers. The morning after the rain definitely stirs the birds and the scent of blossoms.

Honeysuckle – June 2019

Mhhh what is that smell? As I followed the scent, I walked towards the fence. What fence? The fence (not visible) serves as a trellis for a beautiful vine loaded with green leaves and blossoms. The leaves appear oval which are green and greenish blue. Ah,  It’s the honeysuckle bush hanging on to the fence shouting out fragrances and showcasing its beauty.  Did you know the honeysuckle bush can grow 6 to 15 ft, depending upon the location and soil mixtures.

Blossom of honeysuckle

It is loaded with blossoms. I have bushes that are white and peachy/pink/crimson color. Did you know there are over 180 species of honeysuckle. The aroma from the blossoms come from a sweet nectar.  When I was young, I recall eating the honey and staying away from the berries which I was told were poisonous.

The blossoms last from spring into summer.  Providing a wonderful pit stop for the birds and bees. Plus, the beauty that it brings to the landscape. The blossoms are tubular and airy. I guess,  I need to pick one and pinch off the end to taste the honey out of the blossom.   Ooh the taste of summer!!

Have an amazing day!






Hanging Baskets Watering Tips

Please note – all our gorgeous hangers need to be well watered. We recommend not to rely on the rain to water them. When it’s hot and humid, they may need water twice a day.

It may be a good idea to cut back some of the growth mid summer and use fertilizer. Many of the varieties need to be “deadheaded” petunias, verbena, etc.

As you know, deadheading is snipping off the spent flowers (and stems on certain varieties).
