garden expo 2017

The Garden Expo is over! What a rush. Literally. We had wall to wall customers! We brought some tomato and pepper plants home and they are now $3.00 each. We have some that have been transplanted into gallons to keep them healthy and looking good and they are $7.00. Most of them are Sungolds and Sugary. Please see our new hours in the sidebar. We still take checks, credit cards (ten dollar minimum) and of course, cash is king, right??

Here is a list of what we have left. Some we only have one or two of. 


We have vegetables, cucumbers, summer and winter squash (Uncle David's Dakota Dessert Squash, Sweet Mama, Sweet Reba's Acorn, Small Wonder Spaghetti Squash, New England Pie Pompkins), melons, etc.


We also have beautiful hollyhocks, petunias, pansies, 8 types of foxglove (Foxy, Camelot, Candy Mountain, Obscura, Polka Dot - Pippa, Pam's Split, Apricot Beauty, Dalmation), 2 types of penstemon (Esprit and Prairie Jewel), massive lobelia plants, marigolds (Jolly Jester, Dainty Marietta and African), impatiens and other cottage garden flowers.

Due to customer request, we are now offering our tomato cages for sale. They are tall and sturdy and work really well for our plants which usually get very large. Try picking up a tomato plant that has toppled over in a metal tomato cage! $25 for a 5 foot cage. Can be folded like a ladder for storage. See the picture below. First picture is early in the season. As you can see, our tomatoes quickly fill them up.
