Sticks, dead flowers, and grass. When winter hits, it hits hard. All the colours, fragrances, and life just fade away and we are left with the dead remanence of summer.
I have had many customers come to me at our nursery asking for “the evergreen tree that stays little.” There are options like that, but none that will thrive in our Manitoba climate unfortunately. We are working on that looking for better options. The best option we have at this time is called Medora Juniper. […]
We all love a good filler for our baskets, especially one that has so much density and colour. Alyssum has always been that flower for years.
Every fall I get multiple customers per week asking me the same question, as they look at the vast array of plants all around them. “Sooo… what do you do with all these plants for winter?”
Looking around at the snow now covering the ground it is hard to believe that it is still autumn. Nearly all the trees have dropped their leaves, except for a few long standing Willows and Birch.
Fall seemed to come over night, one day its 30 degrees and sunny next its cold, gray skies, and no leaves except for on the ground.
The introduction of a new Hardy tree in our Prairie region is not an everyday event. It takes 10 to 20 years of selecting and testing.
Working at our nursery this year I was sad to hear back from some customers about plants that did not survive the winter.
As you all know the label on the plant at the greenhouse is pretty important. When buying tomatoes for instance, you would want to know if your plant is going to bear big fruit or little ones.
