Give Your Mom a Garden

"When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child."
~Sophia Loren,Women and Beauty

GIVE YOUR MOM A GARDEN FOR MOTHER’S DAY:  All 1 gallon plants are just $4.00 in honor of Mom.  Offer good Friday, May 9 through Sunday, May 11, 2014.

SUMMERTIME SEEDS:  We have just replenished our seed stock with all our heat loving favorites:  zinnias, hyacinth runner bean vine, morning glory, cosmos, sunflowers, and many others.  Our summertime veggie/herb seeds are here as well. (no GMO's.)

FEATURED ROSE:  CALDWELL PINK  This everblooming rose is one of the most popular with landscape designers in our area. Its double, lilac-pink flowers form clusters that can be seen at a distance, and the compact bush fills out nicely with a minimum of pruning and maintenance. It is not very particular about soil conditions, but prefers a sunny open space. Some rosarians have suggested that this is the old China rose, ‘Pink Pet’, but we feel that it shows traces of Wichuraiana or Multiflora heritage and fits more naturally in the Polyantha class. The study name comes from a neighboring town, Caldwell, Texas, where this rose was found.
3-4 Feet tall.   Hardy to zone 5.
