We’ve had enough. It is your turn to plant, water and enjoy!
All annuals in packs and most in pots are buy one get one free! Elephant Ears, caladium, cannas, callas and dahlias are 20% off. So are most hanging baskets and planters!

Of course, The Prairie Bistro serves lunch from 11-1:30 Monday through Saturday through the end of June. Try our scratch-made soups, unique sandwiches and fresh salads!
Just a few of our new items for this spring!
Petunia ‘Night Sky’ has a unique splash of color on a deep blue background. The name was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s painting Starry Starry Night. The amount of white will change as the season changes. This one will be fun to watch!
Petunia ‘Supertunia Honey’ is a warm mix of yellows, oranges and pink.
Kniphofia ‘Poco Red’, more commomly know as Torch Lily. Although perennial elsewhere (NOT HERE!) we are growing this funky plant as a Thriller container plant or for your full sun flower bed. It loves heat and drought.
Gaillardia ‘Red Sun’. Broad petaled “suns” of hot orange-red float over the mounding foliage of this blanket-flower. It is hardy to zone 3 but we plan on using it as an annual in containers, as well as in our well drained perennial beds.
Basil ‘Balsamic Blooms’ is both edible and decorative. Flavors range from mint (blooms) to sweet basil (leaves). Plant in pots to enjoy in your outdoor living space or in your garden for a lush harvest!
Pansiola is a fun blend of pansy and viola! Great for hanging baskets and planters.
Dahlia Go-Go Series ‘Speckled’ and ‘Two-Tone Red’ are a new introduction which make a great stand-alone plant or thriller in your large containers.
Calibrochoa ‘Close Up!’ (left) and ‘Magenta Mayhem’ (right) add a soft semi-double and unique splash of color to our lineup of ‘million bells’ type of flowers.
Hibiscus ‘Little Zin’ is like the ‘Mahogany Splendor’ we have carried for years, except it is more compact and dense-a bit more controllable in containers!
Gerbera ‘Bengal Mix’ is super-cool! This showy daisy is much bigger than its older siblings. The blossoms and foliage outgrow the normal gerbs and they come in six colors. Be sure not to over crowd gerbera daisies to get the most bloom for your buck.
Begonia ‘Unstoppable Fire’ makes a statement with bright orange open flowers and dark foliage. They do well in part sun or part shade.
Dianthus ‘Jolt Cherry’ is very floriferous! It is lightly fragrant and will do well either in a large container or making a bold statement in a front flower bed. It also makes a fabulous cut flower!
Bidens ‘Bee-Dance Painted Red’ shouts out summer time! The two-tone blossoms cover a very aggressive plant that loves heat and sun.
Thanks for all the great Facebook fans who kindly offered ideas for special events! There were many great ideas, some of which we plan for this year, some we will plan on for next year.
Check out the line-up of Dill’iciously Herbs, Gallery On The Go, Perfect Perennials and Jazz Up Junk!

Our first shipments of garden accessories have arrived! And there are some very nice things. Judy has her dibs on the giant green frog. Soni kinda likes the horses.
There are now angels among us! St Francis is nearly 30 inches tall and soooo nice!
We have big frogs and little frogs.
Vases and tea lights to decorate your patio.
And wall art with horses in mind!
We open for the 2016 Spring season April 11!
It may be white and snowy out there, but spring is right around the corner! Growing up the in the florist industry, I was conditioned that as soon as the last Valentine’s arrangement went out the door, we switched gears and started thinking about seeding peppers,
planting up geraniums,
taking cuttings, making sure the furnaces are in working order.
Generators, too! March has the most unstable weather of the year, I swear!
Soon this winter flag for a hydrangea will be snipped away and green, hardy foliage will emerge, tiny buds will push up and new, bright green and creamy white blossoms will replace this tired reminder of last summer.
The butterfly weed seeds which scattered from these perfect pods will germinate in the moist soil and create new food for monarch butterflies.
These scrawny, sorry hanging baskets…….
will bring a smile to the faces of anyone driving down Highway 5 mid-summer (except, of course, those poor guys who take such good care of them!)
Fall planted bulbs will peek out their brave little faces, only to take a hit from winter. The flowers always win, though!
And, of course, spring brings Container workshops and Dirty Dining!
We are also in the process of adding new events, such as a Gallery on the Go painting evening, classes on herbs, succulents and more.
I just can’t wait!!!!!!!!
It’s time for our annual Bedding Plant sale! We had a great Spring 2015, but are tired of watering, so now it’s your turn!
