It May Be Cold Outside But, Our Greenhouses Are Warm and Cozy

Parents weekend at Clemson 2014

It may be cold and frosty outside but our greenhouses are warm and cozy inside.  Winter is the time of year when we have some of our prettiest flowers blooming and that’s when you need them the most!  We’ve grown colorful collections of bulbs such the sweet smelling hyacinths and paperwhites.  The cool loving cyclamen are blooming, the orchid plants are budded and the pansies and poppies are plentiful. After all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, take time to treat yourself or someone else with a fresh colorful blooming plant. It’s the perfect winter pick-me –up!

“We’ll see you in the Winter garden!”
Tim and Lisa King

Tim and I are very grateful that you have been our gardening friends for 25 years.
Thank you!

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

Keep bird feeders and birdbaths full.  The birds are hungry and thirsty even more so during the cold winter months. 

Remove spent blooms off pansies.  The intense cold may have burnt back the blooms but, a little bit of cleaning and a shot of liquid blossom booster can get them looking beautiful again.

Didn’t get your pansies planted before Christmas?  It’s not too late and ours look great!  We’ve got plenty of colors and larger size pots available so you don’t have to wait for the biggest blooms! 

Check your outdoor water fountains.  Tim drains ours before it gets extremely cold in order to prevent it from cracking.
