Start your vegetable garden today

Herbs, Vegetables, Fruits, and Summer Flowers!

Summer is coming and now is a great time to start your garden. You can plant all of your herbs, vegetables, fruits and summer flowers now. It is time to replace the pansies in you garden with summer flowers like Geraniums, Petunias, Begonias, and Fuchsias. It is the perfect time to start a herb garden with fresh rosemary, thyme, tarragon, and basil. If you want to start a fruit garden there is still time to plant apples, cherries, peaches, plums, and other fruit trees as well as small fruit plants like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries.

Lilac

April 20th, 2016

Enjoy the Sweet Fragrance of Lilacs!

Aside from Roses, there are few flowers as beautiful and aromatic as Lilacs. Lilacs have a strong fragrance that you can enjoy throughout your garden. Unfortunately, Lilacs bloom for only a few weeks in the spring.

Weather has a lot to do with how long your blooms last. Cool dry weather helps your flowers last longer (if only we could control) that. Once the blooms have finished, you still have a nice shade bush, but you have to wait until next year to enjoy the blooms again.

You can choose from a variety of Lilacs including:

  • Syringa patula ‘Miss Kim’ (Korean Lilac)
  • Syringa vulgaris ‘Katherine Havemeyer’
  • Syringa vulgaris ‘Charles Joly’
