Summer is the perfect time to add a fountain to your home or garden. (Below) This wall fountain uses re-circulating water–as do all our fountains.

Container Gardening

(Below) We’re happy to offer the Prime-Jim Blackberry, which will produce fruit on its first-year canes. Prime-Jim yields medium-sized, firm berries and offers an extended harvest from mid-June through frost. Its upright, thorny canes work well planted in hedgerows. Prime-Jim Blackberry also performs well in containers.

When planting in containers, ask one of our design experts what soil to use. Your plants will thrive when planted with a great potting soil such as Ocean Forest (below) from Fox Farm.
