Summer ‘Round the Corner

We’re finally starting to spend the odd day outdoors without jackets on, and we couldn’t be happier. Let’s get gardening!

If you want plants to grow, you’ll need seeds! We’ve expanded our Baker’s Creek seed line and continue to carry a tremendous collection from Seedsavers, Renee’s, High Mowing, Thyme Garden, and even a few choice selections from Ohio Prairie Nursery.

Love vegetable plants? We have tomato baskets, veggie pots, and more just in from our vendors. Or you can choose from our collection of store-grown plants, grown from our own seed with organic fertilizer. There’s a large variety of early, cool-weather greens for sale, with more of everything coming along. We also have asparagus, shallots, garlic, onions, potatoes, you name it.

If fruit is more or your speed, we have heirloom apple trees, a few plums, sour cherry, pears, peaches, gooseberries, currants, blueberries, grapes, and raspberries.

And if you’re looking to brew, we have hops!

We started our season with a huge array of beautiful Clematis – over 60 varieties! They’ve been flying out the door, but they aren’t all gone yet, so if you want to add a little color to your garden, come check them out!

We have a huge number of lovely native flowering plants and grasses, and we also have and will again this year be growing from seed some non-native pollinator plants.

Speaking of pollinators, our landlord Dave is selling his amazing handmade honey bee hive housing this year; come see them in the store. We are also partnering with the “Boots to Bees” program. Boots to Bees make bee houses which serve 350 bee species in Ohio – bees which are also great pollinators, like the mason and leafcutter bees. Hanging or setting out one of these houses is a great way to help the bees and, by extension, our ecosystem. You don’t need to be a beekeeper full time to install a hive. If you are too busy to manage colony, or hate honey (which we don’t understand, but hey to each their own!), or maybe you just don’t want to get stung… This program is a real win-win. The houses are made by disabled veterans. The founder hopes one day to have veterans’ wood workshops all over the country. Come take a look!

Thanks for reading!
