New Fresh Flowers
One of the best experiences of growing spring plants in the greenhouse, is the preview we receive when the very first annual flowers open on the newly planted container gardens and hanging baskets. Some of the small starter plants already have flower buds when we plant them. Most need a few weeks to settle in and grow before forming flower buds. This is happening right now.
Every week a few more flowers open and show themselves to us. Many are familiar, but many are brand new varieties for 2020. So, we are especially anxious to see what they are going to look like in real life, as compared to their catalog photo.
We are also anxious to see how our newly designed combination of colors are going to blend. Every recipe is reviewed each year. Old varieties are discarded, and new varieties are inserted to keep the look fresh! This is another way that Creek Side Gardens literally brings color to your life!
Next time your spring fever takes hold, stop by the greenhouses to see all the new flowers. You too can experience the joy of discovering new, beautiful flowers for yourself.
