Backyard Growers
New items this week: annual Black-eyed Susan and perennial Bee Balm. Quantities will depend on how many bloom by Friday. Although the Black-eyed Susans are annuals, they seed themselves very well; so they may as well be thought of as perennials. Bee Balm (Monarda didyma) attracts pollinators and humming birds, but not deer. Bee Balm is in the mint family, and deer don't like plants in that family.
Pheasant Hill Farm / PorTch Tea
Pheasant Hill Farm will have flower sparklers this week to help you celebrate your 4th of July holiday., along with lots of the super long-lasting calla lilies. And bouquets featuring Asiatic lilies, snaps, hydrangeas, asclepia, sunflowers and so much more. For those who have been asking, the lovely lissies (lisianthus) are starting.
