How is your week going so far? I’m so thankful for time in the garden to admire my hard work, rest, think, pray, and find JOY. Yep, it takes some sweat equity, patience, and even disappointment to create beauty in the garden, but it’s so worth it, right? It never fails that every year something doesn’t grow as I had planned.. whether the plants didn’t grow so cohesively in a container garden, or the deer, rabbits and groundhogs found them… or japanese beetles, or downy mildew on my impatiens. Maybe those disappointments make the successes even more appreciated and sweet though.
I love to see and admire what others are doing in their landscape, and we’ve visited a few gardens now on what I’m calling Garden Tour 2020. It’s fun to see what others plant, what their style is, and how the garden becomes an expression of themselves. Last week I covered the greenhouse front beds that our Retail Manager, Tristan, designed. Click here if you missed it. Yesterday we visited long-time customer Shirl Unatin’s home, and you can catch that tour below. I hope that the Garden Tour will inspire you to try something new in your own garden. Maybe there is a new landscape bed that you’ve always wanted to create. Or maybe you’ve been wanting to redo an area. Let us know how we can help you.
This week’s news–
We hope to see you soon!
- we’re looking to clear some inventory in the nursery department, and are creating a new Clearance Area. See below for a list of some of the plants that you’ll find there. Some plants we just have too many of and need to make some room. Other plants have seen better days, and need some TLC and a good home.
- our 6″ flowering vinca is looking great if you need some instant color in the garden.
- it’s Bedner Buck redemption time, now through October 31. Redeem you Bucks for up to 50% OFF of your total purchase. You also keep earning Bucks the rest of the season, so we hope that you’ll come back again, and again, and again 🙂
- summer blooming perennials and shrubs are looking great! Make sure to plant summer and fall bloomers to ensure continuous color through the season. Some people only shop and plant in the spring, and they miss out on all that the garden has to offer for summer and fall. One of our staff would be happy to give you some suggestions.
- sweet corn should be ready within a week, hopefully, after we irrigate the next couple of days.
