Planting in the Greenhouse Update

This week we saw planting completion of the large combination bowls on the floor in House 2, right off the courtyard.  More and more Grown Fresh hanging baskets of all sizes and shapes are now being planted including Calibrachoa/ Million Bells, Osteo Daisy and mixed color Callie and Petunia combos.  The early season six pack planting is under way as well including pansies and violas, snapdragons, dianthus plus a few of the summer annulas that take a little longer to grow like begonias, celosia, dusty miller, gazania, ageratum and vinca.

Grown Fresh Perennials are moving down to a cooler house so that we can begin the conditioning necessary to get them ready for cool season planting beginning in April.   Creek Side is growing an especially wide selection of new perennial varieties to help keep our gardening pursuits interesting.  Check our the Perennial Plant Association 2020 Plant of the Year – Aralia ‘Sun King’
