• Success with Blueberries!

    by  • March 27, 2013 • 0 Comments

    Blueberries are incredibly useful plants. Not only do they give us these delicious berries but they are pretty spring through fall. Some varieties even have reddish stems in the winter! The key to planting blueberries is soil pH. Blueberries prefer 6.0 or below. Always use organic fertilizer on blueberries. Organic fertilizer makes them disease resistant, heat resistant and just healthier which means a prettier, more productive plant for us!

     

    HERE’S A FEW TIPS TO GET YOU STARTED.

    You Can Grow That!

    Redbud trees are in bloom now which means this is a great time to pick your favorite! Redbuds are showy accent trees that are very drought tolerant once established. Best in full sun except as noted below. Water these trees deeply but not too frequently once they are established.

    Here’s a few of our varieties we have in stock now!

    Hellebores!

    by  • February 28, 2013 • 0 Comments

    SHADE BEAUTIES

    These lesser know perennials add excellent, unique color for the shade. Hellebores are at their peak in the late winter and very early spring before anything else in the garden is thinking about coming alive. Add these to your shady flowerbeds with Azaleas, Camellias and ferns!

    How to grow

    Treat Hellebores like you do any other acid loving plant in our climate. Feed with Gardner & Bloome Rhododendron, Azalea and Camellia fertilizer 2-3 times per year. Water as needed being careful not to over water and that’s about it! As long as you prepare and maintain the soil for them, they will thrive for you!

    Happy Hellebore Season!

    -Adria

    Additionally I had a question if you could grow Hellebores in pots. Yes, you can but they will die to the ground in late summer which is why they are best as accents and not a focal point.
