(Below) Lily of the Nile has arrived and now is the time to plant these beautiful plants as they spring into bloom! Better yet, Lily of the Nile is happy in the ground or in containers, with blooms forming whimsical globes in the garden. Butterflies and hummingbirds love their blooms. Ask one of our Garden Design Experts Steve and Miguel for assistance so you can add some scintillating Lily of the Nile color poolside, in the garden, on the patio.


(Below) Dahlias are also just in and ready for planting! Ours are simply gorgeous, with big, glorious round blooms!


(Below) Hanging baskets are another great way to add visual appeal and color. And best of all, this year we have discovered a local grower whose hanging baskets are divine creations! These baskets are overflowing and budding with promise so you’re sure to have beautiful flowers for quite some time.

This little one has one of our kid’s gardening tools (we have gloves, watering cans, brooms, and more tools in sizes for little hands) in her hand, too, so she can help her dad do some planting. As you can see, we have a ton of tomatoes in stock now so stop in today for the best selection. Homegrown tomatoes are the best!
