Garlic sets are here!

- Spanish Roja
Shallot sets arrived, too. Plant them now for harvest next year.
We also have a new shipment of cover crop seed, great for erosion control and the legume mix for adding nitrogen back into your soil … naturally. Spread the seeds now and let Mother Nature water them in.
Bedding plants for late summer and fall have arrived: color, veggies and perennials!
For great fall color, we have hundreds of garden mums in stock ready to bloom.
The bonus? They’re perennials!
Have you tried Cool Wave Pansies?
They are a great trailing style perfect for spreading in the garden or hanging from baskets and pots.
Phenomenal Lavender is a very attractive rebloomer which is very cold hardy and quite fragrant.
How about a fall vegetable garden?
The same plants we grow in the cool spring also do great in the cool fall.
Choose from broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and lettuce, to name a few.
Are you looking to add to your perennial garden? They are cold-hardy, so will survive our winters just fine. Plant them this fall for bigger, bloomier plants next season.
Check out our Fall Gardening Calendar for more seasonal gardening ideas and tips.

Have you seen the new pottery in the nursery?
This is just one of many shipments we have received over the past few weeks.
- Bareroot Strawberries: make sure to ask us about the best way to plant them
- Garden-inspired Gifts
- Beneficial Insects: Ladybugs and Praying Mantis
- Tomato Starts??? We know you know, but we have to say it anyhow: don’t forget the frost protection!
Ladybugs and praying mantis are gardeners’ friends. They are called “beneficial insects” because they help control–by eating!–other pest insects in our gardens.
We carry live ladybugs that can be released directly into your garden. Ask us how you can help make sure they stay nearby rather than fly-away-home!
The praying mantis come as an egg sac that you place in your garden. Wait and watch as small, hungry praying mantis emerge to help you control your pest insect populations.
Either insect–or both–is a fun and effective way to manage pests the natural way!
