On June 17th, somewhere between 8 and 9 PM, an 8-minute hailstorm devastated our vegetable gardens and flower gardens, and did substantial damage to our Garden Center. We spent a day cleaning up and licking our wounds, and then we sucked it up and moved on. We put the remaining viable plants in a “What the Hail” sale, threw away the product that was unsaleable at any price, and ordered in new stuff for you. Down, but definitely not out! Come in and see what’s new!
We are moving into the larger perennial phase of the season. Most of the plants that we get in from now on will be in larger pots– for your benefit as well as ours. We figure that by now you’ll want a plant that has a pretty good head of steam in the development department rather than a quart-size starter plant. And larger pots are easier for us to keep looking good when it gets hot. (If it ever gets hot this year…)
Bob went north yesterday to comb the suppliers for nice plants. Come in this weekend and see all the goodies!
No, the season is not over at Ferda’s. The big boxes are gearing down from selling plants, and are moving into selling grills and tiki torches and all that outdoor accessory stuff. We are more of your plant source. We know you aren’t done planting just because the big boxes are done selling plants. Fresh shrubs and perennials have arrived for you to choose from, and we have received a fresh shipment of flats of bedding plants.
