We’re trying a few new things

Leave a comment

Last winter, during the long dark days, we pondered the spring. We asked ourselves, what could we offer to those lucky devils who live in warmer climes who were already up to their elbows in glorious warm soil by April? A few ideas took sprout, so to speak. Read on for more details.

New product #1: Potted Iris, Ready to Plant in April:

Common wisdom recommends that bearded iris be planted in the summer months, which means that they will bloom the following spring. This year we’re offering six hardy reblooming bearded iris in biodegradable pots ready for planting in April! For best results, the threat of frost must have already passed and the soil must be soft enough to work.

By getting your potted irises in the ground now, you have increased your chances of seeing bloom this year. All the irises in this collection are also classified as reblooming iris. Under the right conditions, reblooming iris have a second bloom cycle in late summer or fall.

NOTE: Recommended delivery for USDA zones 8a or higher. (AL (southern), AR (southern), AZ (southern), CA, GA, LA, MS, NC, NM (southern), SC, TX) Use the USDA zone finder map to determine your zone.

This collection ships only in the month of April. Limited to stock on hand. Offer ends April 21, 2019.

New product #2: Oriental Lilies:

We bring you exquisite Oriental lilies! We are very excited to launch this new venture with our dear friends at Oregon Flower Inc. Over the years our business partnership with the incredible family at Oregon Flowers Inc. has become a treasured friendship. Being the flower lovers that we are, we want to share with you the beautiful, award-winning Oriental lily bulbs sourced by our dear friends at Oregon Flowers. We are confident you will fall in love with their beautiful aromatic blooms season after season, just as we have.

This year we offer two collections of Oriental lilies – one with three lilies, and another with five lilies. Each collection contains two quality bulbs of each variety. Each collection ships free. Lily bulbs will ship only in April. Last day to purchase these lilies is April 14, 2019.

Plant these exquisite lilies in a sunny spot. Enjoy the colorful summertime show of sweet scented blossoms! Read more on How to Grow and Care for Oriental Lilies
