As a wonderful bonus, Theresa will provide the materials you'll need to grow mushrooms on cardboard that can be transplanted into your own garden in a wood-chip bed or onto wood logs. So come on down and bring your questions! She's got answers plus an easy-to-follow handout explaining how to keep your mushrooms going strong once you take them home!

There's Still Time to Plant Outrageous
Delphiniums for Spring Bloom!

Here at the nursery, we're still madly planting up mighty and magnificent Delphiniums in our gardens and half barrel containers for April and May bloom - and you can, too!

We're long-time devotees of these hardy and hunky heartthrobs for their celestial and enlivening color, their bodacious cut flowers and their endurance in the garden. Some modern hybrids (which shall remain nameless) are short lived and weak in mild climates – not these! Bred for superior vigor and performance by the Dowdeswell family of New Zealand, these reliably perennial and multi-spiking jumbo Delphs only get bigger and better every year, sending up more and more simultaneous spikes, easily reaching 4-6' tall and 4' across. Plus, they're mildew resistant, even here in the fog belt. Deer don't care for them either. Hardy to USDA zone 3 and fairly heat tolerant (just be sure to give them afternoon shade where temps get over 90°+F), almost everyone can get a little bit of garden love with these gentle giants.

Here's the trick to towering success: grow Delphiniums in rich soil with plenty of compost. When flower spikes look spent, cut them back to 4” and you’ll get another round of bloom. Don't forget to bait for snails when young! Then, voila! Your hard work will pay off with outrageous blooms and dramatic garden verticality come Spring!
