In the Nursery
Roses are in!
Bare root roses started arriving this month and we've been potting them up just for you! All of our roses are sold in pots, rather than bare-root, which protects their roots from breaking and drying out. Our best selection is in March and April. Call ahead for availability of specific roses to make sure they have arrived.
On our rose page you'll find tips for planting and disease control as well as this year's buying guide. On our Rose page, you'll see how roses are classified and examples of each.

Seed Starting at Home
It’s the middle of winter, but we gardeners are itching to get digging. It’s easy to get excited when all the spring seed catalogs start arriving! But how practical is growing from seed vs. buying starts? It depends on how much time and space you want to dedicate. Growing from seed can save lots of money in the long run, but it requires a bit more work.
