Rose Colors

Posted by Bob Matthews on 2/12/2018 to News
Nothing sends the message more clearly on Valentine's Day, than red roses. We all know it means love. 

The many different colors of roses each carry a specific meaning... a message... from the sender to the receiver. If you are going to give roses to your mom, a sister, your daughter, or a friend, a rose color other than red may be
more appropriate.

This Valentine's Day, learn the meaning behind different colors of roses and send the right message.

Feed the Birds Day

Posted by Bob Matthews on 2/3/2018 to News
It's Feed the Birds Day.

The ground hog saw his shadow yesterday, so we know there will be six more weeks of winter.

That means our backyard birds need us to help them get through the rest of winter. As their natural food supply dwindles, make sure your bird feeders are full.

Did you save some sunflower seeds from last year's garden to feed them? High energy seeds are the best food for your backyard birds

Gardening News - Six More Weeks of Winter

Posted by Bob Matthews on 2/2/2018
Don't get out the seed starting supplies just yet. 

This morning in Gobler's Knob, Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. He predicts there will be six more weeks of winter. So, if you are tired of winter, and want the start of the gardening season to begin, you have Phil to blame.

In the meantime, we've got our houseplants to play with.

While you are waiting for spring,  find the seeds you need.

Gardening News from Pennsylvania

Posted by Bob Matthews on 2/1/2018 to News

Tuesday, February 2nd is a huge day for gardeners. A big announcement out of Pennsylvania, will let us know whether we will soon be able to start our spring crops, or whether we will have to wait another 6 weeks.

Every February 2nd, Punxsutawney Phil, America’s most famous ground hog, is awoken from his cozy winter’s nap. Phil is poked, cajoled and pushed out of his den. Squinting into the daylight, Phil will either see his shadow, or he won’t . If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, gardeners across the country can get out their seeds, starting soil, seed trays and propagation mats. Spring is right around the corner.


Be sure to check back here on the 2nd, to see Phil’s official prediction.


In the meantime, find the seeds you need.

2018 Seed Search Begins

Posted by Bob Matthews on 12/28/2017 to News

As soon as Christmas is over, the search for garden seeds begins. Some gardeners begin their seed search on Christmas Day! The early birds are already surfing the internet for something old, something new, and often something blue. We look for old, established heirloom variety seeds, along with our old favorites that we grow year after year. Many of us seek out new varieties that we've never grown in our garden, as a way of experimenting or challenging our gardening skills. Are you up to the challenge? Sure you are!!

We are very excited for the 2018 garden season, as our easy to use new store has a fresh look and holds even more seed varieties than last year. We have approximately 538 varieties in stock!

What is not new is our low, low prices. Despite rising interest rates and inflations, our seed prices remain the same as last year.

Today is Poinsettia Day!

Poinsettias are an important symbol of the holiday season. We have Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first Ambassador to Mexico, to thank for these beautiful flowers. He brought them back from Mexico, and grew them in his greenhouse.

Learn much more about Poinsettia Day and how to care for them.
