Winter Hours, Seeds, and BEES!

Hello from Perennials Preferred!

First things first: We wanted to make everybody aware of our winter hours.

Monday through Thursday: Closed
Friday and Saturday: 10:00am – 5:00pm
Sunday: 12:00pm – 5:00pm

Winter got you down? Bring some birds to your home for some extra cheer! We have a selection of seed at the stores, and we also take orders for quality Sommer’s birdseed of all sorts. Give us a call at 440.729.7885 to place an order. If we’re not there, leave a message, let us know what you’d like, and let us know how we can get in touch with you. You know the drill! We will even deliver seed right to your home if you’re close enough to us. Ask us if you’re in our delivery area!

It may not seem like it now, but before you know it spring will be here, which means it isn’t too soon to start thinking about your upcoming gardens! Our seeds from 2015 and 2016 are on sale. Experienced gardeners will know already that stored seed can last a long time if not exposed to excessive heat or moisture, and we keep our stock cool and dry.

Are you a love of tomatoes? Well, so are we! We’ve got Amy Goldman’s amazing book The Heirloom Tomato in stock, and we’ve got seed for 80-100 different tomatoes to go with it! Large, small, every shape imaginable and in every color in the rainbow.

Again, we’re taking seed orders, so if there are seeds – vegetable or flower – that you are looking for, please contact us ASAP. We want to hear from you!

I’d also be remiss if I didn’t put out a call to help those bees, and see plans and flowers flourish in the process! Pictured above, you can see our native pollinator boxes for leafcutter bees, built by disabled veterans. Ohio has 350 species of bees, all of them good pollinators. These boxes are a great way to help with pollination without having to clean, tend or harvest. Although, hey, if you really love the beekeeper outfit, we totally get it. Do your thing!

We hope to see you soon!
