Our First Shipment
In white, red, yellow, maroon and pink, these blooms are larger than garden peonies and put on quite a show in mid to late May. Unlike garden peonies, tree peonies are small shrubs, so they do not require staking.
They will average around 3 foot tall although given time, they can grow larger. These plants are easy to grow, hard to find, and simply beautiful in bloom and out!
Onions, Shallots, Garlic
Some things in life should just come from your own back yard. Bon appétit!
Red, Yellow & White Onions
Fresh off the plant - pop them into your mouth or adorn you favorite dessert!
However you choose to eat your strawberries, there is no question about how much better they are when you grow them yourself. Choose from June-bearing, ever-bearing and day-neutral varieties.
