Being cooped up for the winter makes us crave not only the warmth but the smell of summer. If you can’t afford a tropical vacation, visit one of our local greenhouses to find many houseplants known for their deliciously fragrant flowers or scented foliage.

We also have a great selection of Cat Grass. 

Our Cat Grass is grown by us from organic wheat berry grass seed in 4" pots for $2.99.  It is either a white or red wheat grass seed that we use, however the end result is nearly the same.  They last for only 2 weeks and it helps keep the cats away from the houseplants!

April - Sweet Pea

Sweet pea

 

 

 

Sweet peas are climbing plants that bear clusters of flowers in a wide variety of colors including red, pink, blue, white and lavender. The stems appear folded and the flowers resemble fringed butterflies. The old-fashioned varieties were selected for their vibrant colors and intense fragrance. Many modern cultivars are on the market offering sweet peas in almost every color except yellow, but not all of the newer Sweet pea varieties are fragrant. They have a long season of bloom and make excellent cut flowers.
