In our Pollinator Garden today! We have lots of low key but very buzzy action in the Pollinator Garden today. Just stand and watch for a few minutes. Your eyes will begin to see all the little buzzies 🐝, the medium buzzies 🐝 and 🦋, and an occasional big flashy beauty! We have lots of pollinator plants in stock and they are ready to fill your garden with beauty.

We focused on Native Grasses in this issue, and they happen to be on sale along with all our Perennial Grasses and Carex. Exciting news...veggie starts are beginning to come in and you can start fall gardening in earnest. We also have a sweet Summertime Sale going on this week with some lovely items from the Garden Shop to make your Staycation more festive!
We are in love with all the flowers in our home gardens and we hope you are enjoying your garden too. If you need more flowers, plant more - we have a great selection!
Black-eyed Susan aka Rudbeckia fulgiga ‘Goldstrum’ is gorgeous in your landscape right now. If you don’t have any, you really should plant some!
Did you know butterflies love the nectar of this rudbeckia? To name a few of them: American Snout, Great Spangled Fritillary, Hayhurst’s Scallopwing, Orange Sulpher, Pearl Crescent, Sachem, Silvery Checkerspot, Silver-Spotted Skipper, Spring & Summer Azure, and Variegated Fritillary.
Black-eyed Susan is easy to grow, it spreads nicely, and it is SO cheerful looking. Songbirds enjoy the seeds. A native plant, ‘Goldstrum’ grows to 24-36” tall and 28-24” wide in a wide range of planting zones (Zones 3-9). It’s also deer resistant. Plant in full sun to part sun.
