Fresh Summer Flowers

Once summer starts, it is not the end of the season at Creek Side Gardens.  It just begins a new chapter.  We are constantly planting and nurturing Grown Fresh flower crops all year long.  As the greenhouses begin to empty out after the busy spring season, we begin to fill them back up again so that you can be assured of finding fresh, beautiful flowers all summer long.

The June Creek Side hanging basket crops look amazing.  To help celebrate the summer season, all hanging baskets are BOGO FREE this week, Friday June 23 – Thursday June 29, 2017.

One of our most popular summer crops are the fun and festive 3-in-1 combo pots of pre-designed annuals.  Also known as Confetti or Combo pots, 3 different varieties of flowers are grown in a 6” pot for easy design and decoration.  Need a small pot decoration?  Use one pot.  Need a medium pot decoration?  Use 2 pots planted together.  Need a large pot decoration?  Use 3-4 pots planted together to create a big beautiful, color coordinated pot of flowers.  Over 12 different combos to choose from.

June is Perennial Month so don’t miss out on all the beautiful perennials blooming along the Perennial Pathway at Creek Side Gardens this weekend.  Now is a great opportunity to view all the early summer season bloomers to find exciting ideas for coloring up those green areas of your perennial garden this time of the year.  In another couple of weeks the mid-season perennials like Shasta Daisy and Coneflower will be blooming.

This past week was National Pollinator Week.  So, last weekend we visited our on-site beehives and built Pollinator Hotels during our Saturday morning work shop. Your perennial garden is the pollinator’s best friend and Creek Side offers over 25 different kinds of pollinator plants.  Stop by to ask for our Pollinator Plant List and help do your part to create a great pollinator habitat.
