Strawberry plants have arrived ! These are June bearing strawberries and should be planted now or early April. Plant 18” apart in soil with compost mixed in; be sure not to bury the crown. 8 hours of sun is best. Be sure to feed with slow release fertilizer. Don’t overwater, strawberry plants do not like wet feet. Then sit back and enjoy your bounty!
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me……statuary! Looking for something a little different to give as a Christmas gift? We think a piece of garden statuary might be the answer. Rustic in appearance and made of cast cement the pieces in this collection will add a bit of whimsy and fun to your garden. We have a nice selection to choose from so come take a look. Open 9 – 5 everyday!
They’re back! Paperwhite and Amaryllis bulbs are in. Great gift item if you have a “non-gardener” (is there such a thing?) in your life. Add a pretty container and voila’, you have a gift that won’t break the bank. Enjoy the beauty of the Amaryllis, 3 to 4 stems with 4 to 6 blooms on each, and with proper care they should be repeat bloomers. The Kingsdene elves have been VERY busy so come on in and see what those little rascals have been up to.
Isn’t this pretty? Leaves changing on one of the Flame Thrower Redbuds (Cercis canadensis) in the nursery. Native, with light pink spring flowers with an ever-changing display of colorful foliage that continues all the way to fall. New foliage emerges burgundy, fades to yellow, and matures to green. A fantastic and stunning landscape specimen. Deciduous, likes full to part sun, generally matures at 10 years with a spread of 15 feet and a height of 15 to 20 feet.
