Perfect Plants for Easter and Spring

Spring is the most exciting time in the Garden Center. Trucks roll in regularly with fresh new plant material, buds are breaking, seedlings are started, and flowers are blooming. Guests return like old friends, and new faces come in wide-eyed at all kinds of new plants and products we’ve all been working so hard to…

Spice Up Your Container Gardens for Fall

It’s hard to believe that fall is already here (where did the summer go)! That just means that it’s time to freshen up your summer container gardens and get them ready for the new season. I know my containers at home are looking tired and are definitely ready for some rejuvenation.

Our Garden Center is OPEN for the Season!

  It’s been a long, cold, snowy winter and we are happy to announce the Garden Center is open for the season! While the snow was falling, Winterberry has been hard at work thinking of ways to make this season an unforgettable one, from ordering new plant varieties to creating exciting hands-on classes to growing pansies in our retail house. We are thrilled to share some of the excitement with you right now!

Low Maintenance, High Color – Fall Gardening Ideas

When I think of fall gardening, I think of a second spring. Recharged by the cool air, I’m fired up to do some planting! One of the reasons I really enjoy planting in the fall is that there is less thought to it. You just plant and go! At this time of year, plants are winding down. When you do plant, be sure to amend the soil with a good compost and mycorrhizae. Top-dress with some mulch, water the plants well, and Presto! Your plants are set! Since the plants require less watering at this time of year, you may not have to go back and water again. (It is still recommended to check the soil moisture daily, especially on warmer days.) Next spring, your plants will reemerge from dormancy, no hand-holding necessary.
