AnnualsAnnuals are outdoor plants which grow for one season. Beginning in March, our greenhouses begin to fill up with the season’s first pansies and violas, quickly followed by hundreds of varieties of annuals promising spring and summer color. By May, the greenhouse is overflowing with locally grown blooming and non-blooming annuals suited for garden beds, window boxes, and containers. On a weekly basis, we refresh our greenhouse with Impatiens, Petunias, Geraniums, Begonias, and countless others to ensure that our selection is as healthy and attractive as possible.

The autumn season introduces a different source of color: the chrysanthemum. Called mums for short, chrysanthemums perk up your garden and have become equally associated with autumn as the changing of leaves and carving of pumpkins. We take great pride in growing our own mums which develop from miniature cuttings to 8-12” mounds of fall color.
