Dear Friends of Forest Lake Greenhouses,

It’s been a beautiful spring and we hope all your gardens are growing as wonderfully as ours.  We know it takes a little bit of time and work to get things looking good again, but well worth the effort when you see the results.

Summer is almost here and Tim and I are enjoying having Allison home from school. She’ll be busy helping us at the greenhouse, working at The Pink Hangar, and catching up with some friends home from school for the summer.   We’ll fit some family vacation time in her busy schedule somewhere!  In the meantime, Tim will be growing some colorful summertime flowers for all your picnics and parties so come on out and see us!  We thank you for letting us help you grow your gardens this spring and look forward to helping you enjoy summertime in the garden.


See You in the Garden!

Tim and Lisa King


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

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

The garden is looking beautiful this year.  Fill in bare spots and holes in the perennial garden with Tim’s big pots of summer flowering annuals like the Dreamland Zinnias, Parasol Vinca, and Wave Petunias.

The herb garden needs to be cut back and trimmed up.  Wrap fresh herb stems in raffia and hang upside down in the garage or even in the kitchen.  You’ll have dried herbs to cook with this fall when the fresh herbs are finished for the season.

Remember we sell water garden plants.  We’ve got some great looking hardy and tropical Water Lilies, Iris, Corkscrew Rush and other interesting bog plants.  You might want to try a patio water garden.  We’ll show you how.

Perennials like Yarrow, Bee Balm and Coreopsis may be getting ready to finish their spring show.  We cut ours back and look forward to a few more blooms from these same plants later on the summer.

It's Blooming Bucks Time

Don’t forget to redeem your blooming bucks June 1st  thru June 20th.  You’ve been saving up all spring.  Time to treat yourself!
