Spring is here! For weeks new plant material has been arriving and we are getting geared up for another great season. What better way to get into the season than to visit Winterberry Gardens? Our greenhouse is full of pansies and perennials just waiting to be planted. Pottery and statuary will be arriving shortly and our tree and shrub yard is filling up daily. With all that is going on, we are also happy to announce some new additions to the Garden Center this year.
With each season comes new faces: guests, and employees. This year the Garden Center has added a designer and installation crew. Tim Pelepako, our designer, has been with Winterberry for one year now. He brings new creative energy and great customer service to our team. Working alongside our new installation crew, he will be able to transform your landscape into an enjoyable outdoor space.
What better way to enjoy your landscape than to add new plants! The plant buyers at the Garden Center are always working to bring in the newest plant varieties available. For those of you who love color all season long, check out the tropical Toucan Rose Canna. It is extremely heat tolerant, will bloom all summer and is water conscious. Another great water wise plant this year is Sedum Touchdown Teak. It has vibrant red leaves and flowers that will surely brighten up any garden. Growing your own fruits and vegetables is a must have in almost every home these days and trying to find enough space can sometimes be a challenge. This year, try Bushel and Berry’s Baby Cakes Blackberry. Baby Cakes is thornless and is compact enough that it can be grown in a container right on your patio for easy picking.
Our class schedule has expanded with our new Mommy and Me Flower Pot Painting class, Keeping on Growing Cold Crop Veggie class and extra dates have been added to our popular Let’s Get Growing class and our Fairy Gardening 101 class. These are just a few of the new and exciting things that are happening at Winterberry Gardens this year. Be sure to stop in and see what new additions you can add to your landscape!
