Spring pansies at Blumen Gardens

It’s time to put the winter hat and gloves away!

It’s time to put the winter hat and gloves away! (for good this time). And it’s time get out and garden! It’s safe to say that many gardeners have delayed their gardening due to the cold and wet weather. While some of us like the coolness of spring, there’s only so much you can do when your garden is a cold puddle and a clipper is howling straight out of Canada. The forecast is for a steady upswing in temperatures (and mood). So put away the winter gear, grab a shovel, and give spring another chance!

Come brighten the season with our vast and unique selection of Annuals, Herbs & Vegetables, Hanging baskets, and Perennials on display in our Garden Center. See more about our Spring Gift and Garden Center, or take a peek at our gallery and listing below to see a small sampling of what we have, or better yet stop in and see for yourself:

Hanging baskets

Wow! Big, beautiful baskets of color. Hang them up, or better yet slip them into an unused pot! Just remember to give them the care they require for long lasting flowers:
1. WATER AT LEAST ONCE A DAY. If very hot and windy, double check basket moisture. You may need to water twice a day.
2. Be sure to deadhead blooms.
3. Flowers will also greatly benefit from slow-release fertilizer. Blumen Gardens has added slow release fertilizer to these hanging baskets to give them an extra boost. ALSO – we recommend using organic Fish Feritlizer which we stock at Blumen Gardens.
