We have just received a large shipment of conifers and rhododendrons –  drop in to take a look the next time you’re in the area.

Garden conifers come in a rainbow of year-round colour. Many people think green when they think of conifers, but aside from many shades of green they also come in shades of yellow, orange, blue, lavender and even rusty brown. Many change colour through the seasons, and still others have decorative cones or seed bearing fruits.

Their use in the landscape is limited only by your imagination. The strong silhouette of many compact, slow growing conifers can accent a corner of a garden bed, frame a doorway, or add winter structure to perennial or annual beds. They are excellent foundation plants, and mix well with deciduous shrubs. Best of all, conifers are very low maintenance and many are drought tolerant and deer resistant. Large growing conifers such Serbian spruce make beautiful specimen trees in the lawn, but there are many dwarf and miniature types for the rock garden or containers.


We have a great selection to choose from:  Anemone, Chionodoxa, Crocus, Dwarf Iris, Narcissi, Tulips, and more.  Also 8 varieties of garlic to choose from. Visit the article
