Shrubs create year round structure and winter interest in the garden. We have beautiful flowering shrubs and Iowa winter-hearty roses.
We use a non-chemical method to control pest populations. Basically we use beneficial insects to control the bad insects. The goal of IPM is not necessarily to eradicate or eliminate pests, but to strengthen and stabilize the ecosystem so that conditions are favorable for plants and unfavorable for pests. WE DO NOT USE NEONICOTINOIDS!
We have our own special blend, custom made for your container planting with good water retention and good drainage. Your plants will thrive all season!
We grow more than 50 different kinds of peppers including the Lou DeMarco pepper; a spicy Italian thin skinned pepper. Great for backyard grilling!
We carry a wide selection of carefully chosen containers including earth friendly pots made from recycled fibers, drop in coco liners, steel coated baskets, troughs and cradles, as well as terracotta.
