- And for vegetables, we have several eggplant varieties, peppers and tomato varieties.
A large selection of plants will be ready for the weekend of May 17 and 18, including an entire new planting of tomato plants and more flowers.
The new ‘Dolly’ Genovese Basil is adorable and produces lots of nice sweet basil.
With the late arrival of spring, Hattie’s Garden will introduce new plants all during the month of May, including plenty of Rosemary ‘Arp’ for those of you who lost your rosemary last winter.
More peppers and eggplants will be ready by May 24.
Hattie’s Garden will sell plants both at the HLFM and at a plant sale to be held on Sunday, May 18 at the garden. A three-hour time frame for the Sunday plant sale will be announced next week and, as always, if times don’t work for you we can make other arrangements to have you come out.
For flowers this month, expect to find Benary Giant Zinnias each weekend as we continue to grow it, as well as State Fair Mix Zinnias, Oklahoma Mix Zinnias and plenty of Zahara Bedding Zinnias. Several types of cosmos: Bright Lights Mix Cosmos & Sensation Cosmos, a nice tall blue ageratum, a tall purple gomphrena and even some lovely lisianthus in lavender or champagne are other coming attractions.
We will keep growing plants all spring and hope you will keep planting!
See you at the HLFM this Saturday.
