Welcome Spring!

Dear Friends of Forest Lake Greenhouses,

Happy Spring! So glad we can finally say the words!

    We have a new addition to our family and he is proving to be a leashful! Tommy, our little Beagle mix was a rescued pup from the Darlington County Humane Society. He is very sweet, fun-loving and a joy to have around. We give the wonderful volunteers at DCHS all the credit for rescuing him and getting Tommy well enough for us to adopt and provide him a “forever home.”

    Wish us luck! We have a lot of obedience training to do, but it’s all good. Tommy smells the flowers, without eating or digging them up! Whew!!

 

See You in the Garden!

Family owned and operated, we’re now celebrating over 25 years of growing great gardens!

HAPPY SPRING

What's Growing on in Tim and Lisa's Garden

We’re now celebrating 25 years of growing great gardens!

Perennials are popping up all over.  Many varieties are coming back strong.
Apply slow release fertilizer now and patiently wait for some of the slower perennials like hostas and other shade lovers to pop up soon.

Our clematis are beautiful!  Full of buds and ready to burst. We have applied bone meal to beef up their root systems as well as fresh pine straw.  Tim and I like to encourage them to grow up attached to fishing line.  One of our favorite varieties is the white Henryii.  Find a place for one of these in your garden.

We’ll cut back our Formosa azaleas after they are done blooming and prune out lanky old woody stems.  We fertilize with Holly Tone. 
  
The daffodils have been done blooming, but we allow the green leaves to remain on the bulbs as long as possible to supply nutrients for next year growth.  Now is a good time to divide spring flowering bulbs and apply bone meal.

Tim is rinsing the pollen off the screen porch while Lisa is re-potting the houseplants to get them back outside for the summer!
