Hydrangeas: Everyone's Favorite Summer Bloom

Offering long lasting summer blooms ranging from white, pink, blue and deep purple that age gracefully in the fall and often hang on through winter.  These care free shrubs require little fertilizing, minimal pruning and thrive in the Pacific Northwest.  Look for the delicate lace-cap whose bloom is flat and graceful looking, paniculatas with their elongated cone shape or the most common mophead with a big fluffy snowball shaped bloom.

Many hydrangeas are Ph sensitive and the bloom colors can be altered by adding lime for a pinker bloom or aluminium sulfate for a blue to purple bloom.  This must be done in late winter or early spring before the blooms have set.  Additionally, there are many new hydrangea varieties that bloom on new and old wood, which extends the bloom time and allows you to cut and come again.  These repeat bloomers can be cut nearly to the ground each year and they will still bloom. The size of these shrubs is easily controlled through pruning without losing their glorious blooms.

We have a great selection of hydrangeas now and we look forward to helping you find the perfect one for your garden.

This tall Japanese maple offers attractive dark red bark and deep burgundy foliage.  It grows in an upright habit which makes it well suited to a small accent tree for patios and entryways. 

Berries are Here!

Butterfly Gardens

This is really much more than a gardening trend. Many national parks, zoos, and botanical gardens feature butterfly gardens.  Butterflies are a wonder to watch and captivate both young and old alike.  When planning a butterfly garden it is important to not only think about the plants that will supply the nectar but for all the stages of a butterflies life...egg, larvae (caterpillar), pupa (chrysalis) and adult.  When planning your garden it is important to find a sunny sheltered area, preferably close to a window or pathway for viewing.  Butterflies are attracted to bright colors and often like to perch on the flower as they feed.  Remember, by adding a few butterfly  favorites don't be surprised to find more hummingbirds and pollinating bees frequenting your garden as well!

Some Plants to Attract Butterflies:

~ Buddleia

~ Verbena

~ Asclepias tuberosa

~ Echinaea purpurea 

~ Gaillardia

A Rose by any other name, would smell just as sweet!

The Beautiful Beech!

Delicate lacy vines, vibrantly colored blossoms, bloom times ranging from late winter to early fall, evergreen to deciduous...what other collection of plants can offer so much!  Many clematis bloom up to three times per season and they come in a range of mature heights from 2ft tall, which is great for containers, up to 25ft tall which is stunning on a pergola, and many heights in between.  Some of the varieties we have in stock at this time are:

~ Clematis armandii 'Snowdrift'

~ Clematis alpina 'Pink Flamingo'

~ Clematis 'Nelly Moser'

~ Clematis montana 'Warwick Rose'

~ Clematis macropetala 'Markham's Pink'

~ Clematis 'Vancouver Danielle'

Dutch Hill Elementary Project

Fagus sylvatica, European Beech or Common Beech first arrived with the European colonists in the mid 1700's.  This slow growing tree can reach up to 50' tall and wide and is often selected as an ornamental shade tree.  Flowering around the end of April, the female blooms produce a triangular, edible nut that is encased in spiny bracts. The wavy elliptical leaves take on a golden-bronze fall color giving way to a dark gray, smooth bark that appears to have wrinkles.  This tree is great for large areas and should be considered a great choice offering four-seasons of interest.  There are several cultivars ranging in height, width and even weeping.  You are sure to find one that will work in your own home garden.

Be sure to check out this year's 2014 Rose List to see if there is an old favorite or something new to add to your garden. Be assured that we look for the most disease resistant and cold hardy roses for the Pacific Northwest.

  June bearing, everbearing or wild...this easy growing fruit is a must in every home garden.  Nearly evergreen, strawberries fit as well in a perennial flower bed as they do in a veggie garden.  Everbearing varieties such as 'Quinault' and 'Tristar' produce over the entire season...these are great for fresh eating as they provide a constant supply of fruit.  Additionally, there are great ornamental varieties like 'Lipstick' and 'Lila Diamond' that have brilliant pink blooms.  These varieties are often grown as ground covers.  With so many varieties to choose from for fresh eating with your shortcake, jam making or as an edible ornamental landscape plant, you really can't go wrong with strawberries. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every year the advancing 6th graders leave behind a gift for the school to enjoy. 

This years students chose to transform the outdoor space by the portables where they have been studying. 

Working with Sublime Garden Design, the students created a plan with Heidi and Kryssie.  From this plan a mission statement evolved to help guide everyone through the creative process.

This project was created by many volunteers and donors.  We are proud to have participated with such a great group of community builders!

This marks the 30th Anniversary for the Snohomish Garden Tour.  This years' tour features 8 urban and suburban gardens near historical Snohomish, many which have never been open to the public before.

The tour is Sunday, July 27th from noon til 5pm.  Tickets are $12 each, no charge for children 13 and under.

 Handcrafted Jewelry and Pottery with leaf impressions of your favorite plants by Martha Dankers crafted Snohomish, WA.  "Mpressions by Nature" is aptly named: I make the impressions but nature is the true artist.
