ISSUE #739 - AUGUST 15, 2019
Bring home a new friend with Marimo Moss Balls, now available at Estabrook's
Caring for Marimo Moss Balls
Marimo Moss Balls have arrived at Estabrook's in Yarmouth!

Marimo ("seaweed ball" in Japanese) are rare algae growths that only form in a few lakes in Iceland, Scotland, Japan and Estonia. Many cultures consider them to be good luck and treat them almost as pets (you can think of them as the aquatic equivalent of a "Pet Rock"). These happy little plants will live in containers and are very easy to care for.

However, we do recommend a few care guidelines to make sure your new friend can live its best life...
Kerry's Tips of the Week
Late Summer Annuals to the Rescue
Summer heat and humidity (not to mention inconsistent watering) can take their toll on residential containers and hanging baskets. Your plants can start looking peaked and lack their early summer vibrancy.

Time for a facelift!

Why not swap out shabby looking annuals for those that look fresh as a daisy?  All annuals are now 40% OFF at Estabrook's. Shoppers repeatedly share how astounded they are by our lush, healthy plants, despite the sizzling days of August.

A fresh insertion of annuals will carry the show through the fall. Plus, a number of annuals can be repurposed as houseplants in winter, doubling their value! A few such annuals are Rex Begonia, Fittonia, Coleus , Geranium , and Impatiens .
