With a clear signal from Mother Nature in the form of a lovely spring day, Harlequin’s gardeners came out to play and shop last weekend, taking in the delightful spring ritual dancing of our friends, the Maroon Bells Morris Dancers, and taking advantage of our May Day sales. We hope you’ll come out this weekend too, to enjoy our wonderful live music!
Our plant sales continue through Sunday May 7th, with a Deep Discount section still brimming with excellent perennials and various other plants, as well as 25% off our beautiful Cool-Season Vegetable starts. (Mountain gardeners – this is your moment!) And for Members, our offer of $5 off a full-price plant purchase of $50 or more still applies through Sunday. HERE are the sale and event details.
At the same time, we are bringing out a huge influx of new tomatoes, peppers, annuals, perennials, vines, roses, shrubs, trees and fruiting bushes and trees. This week we are adding many roses to our shelves, including David Austin English Roses – great favorites like Crown Princess Marguerite, Golden Celebration, Abraham Darby, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Benjamin Britten, Princess Ann and Molyneux.
Our selection of planters and pots has just increased, too, with the addition of more beautiful sets of classically-shaped glazed and terracotta ceramic pots, as well as self-watering Earth Boxes and very low-priced and practical fabric planters (great for balcony container gardening)!
Perhaps you will be looking for gifts for the Mothers in your life. Please consider all the great choices we offer, from Gift Certificates, Classes and Memberships to our organically-grown, pesticide-free, bee-safe Plants. Then there are the stunning and fragrant pots of spring-flowering bulbs from our friends at Artemis Flower Farm. And sweet fruiting plants like strawberry, raspberry, current, blackberry, grape and gooseberry. And house plants! If the gift needs to go through the mail, we have indispensable gardening tools – our Japanese Knife Weeders (Hori-Hori), ergonomic stainless steel trowels, and the very best hand pruning tools. Can’t choose? We have delightful garden flags, block-printed by hand by A Ruby Moon that everyone enjoys.
