I thought I would let you all in on some new plants we have this year.

Fruit trees and bushes:

Apple, pear, and cherry trees

Thornless Blackberries



and as always, we have strawberries

We also have some new annuals:

Aztec Plum Magic Verbena
Supertunia Raspberry Blast

Spellbound Trailing Impatiens

Ptilotus Joey

Corkscrew Rush

and a perennial endless summer hydrangea.

Here is a look at how most of our plants start out, from seed.

The vegetable plants are growing like weeds. We have even been setting broccoli and cabbage plants outside during these beautiful days to catch some sun and fresh air.

Sweet potatoes are sprouting...

and lots of plants are starting to bloom!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Spring is almost here, but the fun has already begun in the greenhouses. We already have nearly 3 greenhouses full of plants! Many of them still have months to go, but the pansies and snapdragons are cold tolerant and ready to go now!

It is also time to start digging those planters, window boxes, and topiaries out of the garage. Start thinking about emptying out any remaining soil and plant material from last year and bringing them over to the greenhouse to place your order. You can bring these items in any time before mother's day weekend to be refilled, we just ask that you pick finished planters up before mother's day weekend. The earlier you get your planters in, the larger the selection of plants to fill them!

That's about all I have for now. Just wanted to give you a taste of what's been going on around the greenhouse in these late winter months.

Also, keep your eyes open downtown Greenfield this spring/summer as Sunnyside will be filling the lamppost baskets with beautiful flowers! Have a great St. Pat's!!
