Container Grown Annuals
Warm weather annuals are still welcome additions for any garden. With nurseries beginning to mark-down stock, these container-grown annuals will add color to your yard all the way through the last frost.
Container Grown Perennials
As July comes and goes, many container-grown perennials are beginning to bloom! Many container perennials are often second or third-year plants which means they have a higher likelihood of taking root before fall. Invest in some immediate color that you can depend on for years to come!
Seeds to plant for next season color
You know what they say, “patience is a virtue.”
Did you know that phrase was first used in the mid-1300s by William Langland, a famous English poet?
The quickest way to get a good return on a garden investment is to start plants and flowers by seed. These varieties require cold conditions to germinate and will remain unharmed in the ground during the summer months. Planting seeds for next year gives you a head start on next year’s growing season. Set it and forget it!
