Plants are going in!
Construction continues on the changes to the nursery, and the plantings have begun. A new driveway will be added, which will make it much easier for our customers to access the retail area. A new retail greenhouse will be added very soon, and more display gardens will be going in over the next few days. It is certainly a busy time at the nursery!
Yesterday began the first of the plantings in one of our display gardens. This included planting Red Maple trees, Oak Leaf Hydrangea, Fringe Tree, Hazelnut, Witch Hazel, Fothergilla, Spicebush, Mapleleaf Viburnum, Florida Flame Azalea, Pinxterbloom, Piedmont Azalea, Plumleaf Azalea, Tea Olive and more! We can't wait until spring to see the beautiful blooms and smell the sweet fragrance.
We even had a several colorful visitors checking out the progress while planting was going on. We have added several native plants and pollinator friendly plants to our inventory this year to help support the pollinators and other wildlife.
We are still open during construction, and there is still time for planting. The air temps are a bit chilly, but our ground temps are still above 50 degrees, so we still have time for fall planting to give your perennials a healthy start for next year.
