What makes our plantings special? For starters, the planting mix is a high porosity, free draining peat based and/or a coconut coir blend. We are shifting more towards the coconut coir because of sustainability issues. These types of planting mixes are nutrient neutral so we fertilize regularly during the growing process and encourage our customers to do the same. Our hanging baskets are made of a thick wood pulp product that protects and insulates the roots.
What makes our plantings unique? We are an independently owed nursery and we exercise that independence by mixing plants from different growers. Independence allows us to try some different plantings such as our mixed succulent containers and our lush hanging baskets. All of this together gives our plantings a little different look that has created an amazing following over the years.
We don't dismiss the tried and true either. We planted about 2000 geraniums in the last 2 weeks. Most of our zonal Geraniums are from the Rocky Mountain series which is a proven performer along the Front Range and we planted 6 different colors this year. We also grow a variety of novelty geraniums with variegated foliage and regular foliaged zonal with red and white bicolor blooms.
If you need a break from winter or if you have serious spring fever, we are open now and you can visit the baby plants in our nursery.
