New Stock is Arriving Daily!

The garden seeds are all here, early summer bulbs have started to arrive, and lawn fertilizer is stacked high.

We are unpacking trees and shrubs from the winter holding beds, and new plants have started arriving from nurseries. Flowering Pansies should start arriving by mid-March. Onion bulbs are in, and potato starts should arrive soon.

Pottery is getting unpacked and priced, and fountains and statuary are here.

Fruit trees are here! Early spring is the time to buy fruit trees. We have also taken delivery of blueberries, raspberries and figs. As spring progresses, strawberries, gooseberries and currents will arrive.

Cool Season Flowering Annuals

Hey! Spring’s here…almost, in fits and starts. March is kind of a four season month; you never know what weather the next day will bring. But it is a great time to get some bright colors in a drab landscape by putting in some hardy annuals that bloom in cool temps and shrug off even a light frost. For those frigid mornings, a quick covering will protect these gems till the sun shines on them. Here are a few cool weather annuals for pots, patios, and garden beds.

  • Pansies - reliable for bright colors, continuous bloom, and toughness.
  • Violas (Johnny Jump-ups) - small cousins to the Pansies in bold colors.
  • Dianthus (Pinks) - shades of pink, very tough, that stand on sturdy stems.
  • Snapdragon - tall and spiky, grow from starts or seed very easily.
  • Osteospermum (African daisy) - compact daisy-like bloom in interesting colors.
  • Ranunculus (Spring Rose) - lush, rose-like blooms in bright and pastel colors.
  • Sweet Pea - sow from seed. Very easy and attractive blooms.
  • Alyssum - clusters of tiny white blooms make good accents or border plants.
  • Dusty Miller - fussy silvery foliage plant is a great focal plant in a pot or background in a bed.

Birds, Birds, Birds!

In March, Ohio starts to see the migration of birds into and through our state to summer nesting territories. Make sure you keep your feeders full of fresh seed, mealworms, suet, and fruit to attract a wide variety of our native feathered friends, and if you are lucky, you might see an exotic visitor just passing through! Several wonderful natural areas provide opportunities to see birds you could never attract to your yard due to habitat requirements. Just a few are listed below.

Blendon Woods Metro Park: Very close to us, Gahanna and New Albany residents! The 11-acre Thoreau Lake has two elevated observation platforms for observing waterfowl and nesting birds.

Hoover Reservoir: When the water level goes down, the mud flats of Hoover provide excellent habitat for many species of native and migrating wading birds and waterfowl.
