A New Cyclamen!


The Indiaka Series of Cyclamen was developed to be exceptionally prolific bloomers. They offer bicolored flowers in a range of colors. They thrive in morning sun outdoors and can be kept indoors in bright light for a couple of weeks.

Planting Your Garden Of Eatin'

If you want a fruitful garden to feed yourself and your family, start with young plants. They will take root more quickly and be sturdier in the long run.

They are also more trainable, easily planted trees, vines and bushes. Here's your chance with a large selection of edibles in liner pots at starter prices.

Our liner pot tree selections include apples, figs, mulberries, olives, pears, plums, pomegranates, and prunes. These trees are great candidates for grafting or budding, training as espaliers, and for hedgerow plantings. Consult our Backyard Orchard Culture Guide for planting ideas.

In addition to several varieties of blueberries, we offer blackberries, raspberries, olallieberries, and goji berries. These starter-size berries are great for planting a harvestable wall with "cane" berries and borders with blueberries and goji berries.

For your arbors or gazebos, we offer several table grape varieties and kiwis (male and female). These are large, vigorous vines that need sturdy support. The shade they cast is welcome in the summer and, oh, the decadence of reaching up to pluck a bunch of ripe grapes while lounging beneath.

Come see our selection of starter-size edibles and start the orchard that will feed your family for years to come. There's nothing like your very own garden of eatin'.

A Tasty Gift For
Your Favorite Foodies!

A container garden of herbs is handy for anyone who enjoys cooking with fresh flavors. Many herbs grow through the winter - like parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Place the container in a sunny spot as close to the kitchen access as possible so stormy weather can't prevent snipping away. The size of the container will dictate the number and types of herbs you can plant. Come in to choose a container and we'll be happy to help you choose the right herbs.
