Perennial Greenhouse Planting

The Green Team is beginning to plant perennial crops for next season.  We plant the larger 6″ pots of perennials in the summer from small starter plants.  Then we grow them through the summer and fall seasons, get them ready for winter, tuck them in and put them to bed for the winter early December.  Un-tuck them the following spring mid-March, get them growing and make them beautiful for you that next spring and summer season.  Yes, we carefully nurture those plants for a full year so that they are absolutely the very best plants they can be for our Creek Side customers!  That is the Grown Fresh difference that Creek Side Gardens has to offer.  Ask us for a tour of the summer production greenhouses.  We will show you how it is done!
