Both calibrachoas and Wave petunias are the perfect 'fillers' for both gardens and containers providing masses of beautiful color in a sunny location. In fact, you can even mix them for fun. These are carefree plants that slowly spread but can easily be pinched back and kept in control.

Hanging from porches, sitting on railing posts, nestled in urns along a walkway, tropical ferns always make a home look friendly and inviting in the summer. They are easy to care for, just check them each morning to see if they need water and place them in an area with filtered sun and good air circulation.

Upcoming Workshops & Events
Easy Herbs: Preserving And Cooking
w/ Jessica Crawford
Date: Saturday, May 30, 2015
As a garden blogger for Behnkes I am excited for the opportunity to participate in the herb weekend at the nursery. As an avid gardener, herbs have played a large and essential part in my edible gardening. I plan to demonstrate and provide some recipes for my favorite ways to use fresh garden herbs. This would include preserving fresh herbs by canning and drying as well as teas and tea blends. I will also be demonstrating a couple of easy, light and bright ways to prepare fresh herbs into delicious dishes. I look forward to seeing you there!
GARDEN TALK - Growing Herbs in Containers
Date: May 31 - Noon
Some herbs we grow in containers because they are a little invasive. Others may need to come inside during our cold winters. While still others are grown in containers because that is the space we have available. Whatever your reason, discover which herbs grow best in containers, how to combine them, and which ones may be a little temperamental. Carol will also go over what kinds of pots and soil to use, when to water, and how to overwinter.
Date: May 31 - 2pm
Cook's have been growing fresh herbs right outside their back doors for centuries. Carol will discuss some of the most common and useful herbs to keep in a kitchen garden, which are hardy, which may be invasive, and which you will have to replant each year. She will also offer tips on plant spacing and design.
