Shade Planter

This is one of my favorite plant combinations for the shade. There's nothing like white caladiums with algerian ivy cascading down for making a container look elegant. Love the simplicity of this look. The last few years I've been into bright vibrant colors, but I'm back to liking whites and pastels. According to one of my reps. pastels are "in" I guess I'm "in".....

Happy Easter!!! and thank you to everyone who came in. It's our 2nd Easter up here at the greenhouses and it's been great fun setting up the shop for Spring. It's too bad we can't keep it up longer....but already customers are asking for fertilizer and things that we usually have in here. Soon enough.

Also a note to our customers, sadly since George's fathers passing 2 yrs. ago we have not been associated with Maynards farm market on Rt 1.

This week we'll be open only from 12-4 so we can get to all the planting that still needs to be done. We'll have Easter gifts on SALE in the shop this week also....

The start of Spring

Most people don't know how small some of these plugs are when we get them in. This one is considered a large cell from a flat with 72 plants. Some come 512 cells per flat....itsy bitsy. They need to be monitored all the time to make sure they don't dry up. Well got to go plant them now...see ya.

Easter prep

Even though the weather today shows little sign of what we like of Spring......our mind set is all about Spring....with preparations for our first shipment of plugs and cuttings. In less than 2 weeks we will be open for Easter on Sat. March 15th. It's earlier then we've ever open. Normally our opening date is April 1 or there about. The week after Easter we will probably limit our business hours to get to all the work we need to do. We'll post our hours for that week later. Look forward to seeing you all.
