Goodbye Spring, Hello Summer

June 29, 2014 | Posted in Uncategorized | By

Today will be our last Sunday to be opened for the Spring shopping season, and wow what a busy season it has been.  We have sold many  of our annual, tropical, and perennial plants.  We have also sold a large portion of our trees and shrubs; this does not mean we are out, just that we have a smaller selection.  This past winter was a tough winter on plants of all kinds and we all have lost a large number unfortunately.

Now is the time to sit back, enjoy the summer and all of the new plants we have worked so hard to plant this spring.  It is also time to apply the Lawn Food plus Iron to your yard; you may do so from July 1st -August 1st.  Stop by and pick up yours soon.

As I sit back and think about the spring season, I think of all of our great customers and how good it was to see you.  Some of my favorite flowers for the Spring were the Red Hot Poker (kniphofia), Bee Balm(Monarda), Centaurea, Beardtongue (Penstemon), Centaurea montana ‘Amethyst in Snow’, and Hosta ‘Church Mouse”.  It is time to start searching the catalogs to find some great new perennials for next year.  If you have any that you would like for me to look for, send me an email [carol@wischmeier.com].  I always research and see if I am able to order special requests, but sometimes they are not available to us.

Thanks for a Great Spring Season,

Carol
