Lisianthus have returned! We love the second flush of lisianthus flowers that we can always count on as summer wanes. Although less abundant, the second flush is gorgeous and long-lasting.
For those that may not know, the lisianthus is a beautiful flower, similar to a rose without the thorns. And so elegant — you’d never guess it’s native to American prairies.
The Wednesday HLFM market is over for the season and we wanted to thank all of you who were able to come mid-week to support the HLFM vendors.
We will continue to be at the Historic Lewes Farmer’s Market (HLFM) on Saturday until Thanksgiving, and please feel free to stop by the Garden Thursday or Friday afternoon from 2 to 5, especially if you would like tomatoes. The tomatoes have not liked our humidity and heat, and are becoming scarce. Your best chance to get them is here at the Garden as we can’t guarantee they will be available at our Saturday market.
What’s Available This Week
The following will be available on Thursday and Friday at Hattie’s Garden from 2 to 5, and the HLFM on Saturday from 8 to 12, located on the grounds of the George H.P. Smith Park at the corner of Dupont and Johnson Avenues.
- Specialty Cut Flowers — Choose a freshly prepared beautiful bouquet which includes several lisianthus stems, along with zinnias, celosia, gomphrena, cosmos and tall blue ageratum.
