Spring 2017 Opening

I say it every year, as most of you do, I am ready for spring.

As soon as the Spring Migration begins and I hear the calls of the spring birds, the urge to get outside and work in the earth is intense.

Were you out cleaning perennial beds during the annual short warmup in March, I was and am certainly plotting and planning new plantings

The Spring Peepers were out earlier than I have ever recorded, and makes me wonder once again the impact of Global Warming.

This last weekend's temperature leafed out the lilacs and the narcissus and other spring bulbs are blooming, so I guess I had better post our opening date.

Green Wellies is proud to open for our 20th year!

Why I love Spring Blooming Bulbs

I have been reading Margaret Roach's blog "A Way to Garden" for years.
It never ceases to inspire.

Today's weekly installment was about companion planting with bulbs.

Go read it now and be inspired.

Mother's Day 2016

I would like to thank everyone who visited our little shoppe on Mother's Day.

We were so busy that at times I felt I wasn't providing the customer service you have come to expect here at Green Wellies Garden Shoppe.

So, thank you for stopping by, thank you for buying local, thank you for the shared love of everything blooming, and mostly thank you for your patience.

In appreciation, we will extend our business hours in the month of May.
Monday - Thursday 10a-7p
Friday - 10a - 6p
Sunday 10a-5p

Pictured is a sweet little Lewisia that is blooming in the courtyard, this is the perfect early spring bloomer for dry shade.

Typical Spring

It appears that we are having a very typical spring; last weekend was so warm and now we have the heat on in the shoppe.

But still everyday Mother Nature awards us with one gift or another, my late blooming daffodils are so enjoying these cooler days and the orchards on my drive in have been spectacular.

Let us enjoy these spring days as we prepare for the heat and humidity that summer will bring.

Shoppe Hours: M-F 10a-5p and Sun. 12n-5p Closed Saturday

Four varieties of Garden Peonies are budded and ready for Mother's Day Gift Giving.
