Tropical Ferns

Frolicking
Tropical Ferns


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.

Everyone loves lavender. It's allure has been calling humankind ever since lavender and humans met, which was probably a very long time ago given the amount of ancient references to the plant. It seems our love for this plant only gets stronger. Is it the aromatic foliage, its deer resistance, its carefree nature, its purple blooms that attract the butterflies in droves? Very likely. Or is it that we associate lavender with beauty, calmness, and well-being? Probably that, too. Whatever your reason for loving this plant, now is a really great time to pick one out. Here's a growing tip: plant in rocky, gritty, well-amended soil in a slight mound; mulch with stone instead of wood to prevent crown rot and disease.

Daisies! This icon of spring has to be one of the most recognizable flowers in the world. Just hearing the name conjures up images of sunny skies, birds singing, a breeze in your hair, and a verse or two of 'zip-a-dee-dodah' running through your head. As iconic as it is, the Shasta daisy was not created from plants native to the U.S., yet its very existence is all-American.

Let us explain..... A long time ago, in California, Luther Burbank developed this strain of daisy by patching together four different types of European and Asian daisies. After 17 years of trials and fine-tuning the Shasta daisy was finally introduced in 1901. Burbank named the strain after Mt. Shasta in Northern California. There are a lot more cultivars available now, but really, we think the simple white petals with the brilliant yellow center is just unbeatable.

Dwarf & Unusual Conifers
Sale 25% off

Evergreen conifers, you can make a very interesting garden just by mixing their various leaf shapes, colors, and growth habits. Conifers have leaves in the form of needles, but many are not sharp (those that are will be great deer deterrents!) and although they don't flower, the seed cones that some produce make for their own seasonal points of interest. Plus, they offer a wide range of choice.
Most prefer sun, but some will do well in shade; several are deer-resistant and all are perfect additions to a mixed border, as doorway accents or in a collection all to themselves.

Upcoming Workshops & Events

Easy Herbs: Preserving And Cooking
w/ Jessica Crawford

Date: Saturday, May 30, 2015
Time: 1:30 pm

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
w/Carol Allen

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.

w/Carol Allen

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.
