Something to think about when creating a new annual container garden: Thriller, Filler, and Spiller.

Here are a few ways to create your patio pot, hanging basket, or window box. Something to always keep in mind is how your container garden will be viewed: from the front or from all directions.

Happy March!

From Cuttings…

Geraniums are the perfect ideal summer annual for Minnesota. This plant can handle the intense heat our summers have to offer, while still maintaining healthy green foliage and bright flowers. Our Geraniums are all grown from cuttings. Once they are stuck in our homemade soil they are misted until roots are established.

…To establishing Roots…

Once the roots are established our growers pinch and maintain a healthy crop during the next couple of months to make sure they are on track for May. Pinch back and routine dead heading can create a fuller, healthier plant. Regular pruning is crucial for new plants that need to be trained for the summer to come.

…To Mature Geraniums!

It’s important to us that we offer the healthiest and fullest product we have to offer. When selecting garden center material, we are sure to only pick the plants of highest quality, which to be honest isn’t hard when our growers make that process easy. Our team of growers put in the long days and hard work to make sure we provide a product that everyone’s mom would like to have!

For the Love of Plants!!!!

By Christina Timm

Every season has its own unique qualities that makes them stand out from each other! Spring’s unique quality is giving us a taste into spring before it happens. We can all use a taste of green, especially this time of the year. It’s important to find love and happiness in every situation. Today, we want to help add to your love and happiness with a taste of what is growing in our greenhouse and spread the love of plants.

Plants are amazing creatures that bring us joy and companionship. Much like a pet they provide a sense of responsibility. When they are doing well we thrive on the happiness of our success and when they are struggling we research and do everything we can to make them feel better.

Hydrangea

Plants make life possible. Period. Besides providing mental and physical happiness they also make it possible for us to survive on earth. Houseplants help improve the air quality by absorbing toxins, producing oxygen for us to breathe, and increasing humidity.

Ranunculus

Plants help us see things differently. They help us recognize that the world is full of new possibilities that are much bigger than we are. They fill us with love, providing us with partnership. Plants let us know what they need and in turn we adapt putting their needs before our own.

From one plant friend to another, Happy Heart Day!
