Plants for your Home Gardens
Its not too late for a tomato plant or two to be planted and we still have some nice ones. We have fast growing cherry tomatoes including Tommy Toe (large, delicious red cherry), Black Cherry, and Jelly Bean (a nice small grape tomato). Get a good tasting heirloom, such as Brandywine or Pineapple Bicolor and we still have plenty of delicious San Marzano and Amish Paste.
A new planting of Benary Giant cutting zinnias, also in mixed colors, is ready for your garden as well, if you dare! They will grow to at least four feet tall with huge blooms of 3-4″, but will need a bit of support, or need to be planted against a fence or wall with plenty of sun. We have Zahara and Profusion Bedding Zinnias in mixed colors ready for a carefree landscaping feature for you. They will bloom all summer, fill in incredibly well with spacing of a foot apart and grow to approximately a foot to a foot and a half tall. They are just stunning, heat tolerant, drought tolerant and disease tolerant. We also have tall (3-4′) Double-Click Cosmos (cranberry and mixed) ready for you. And of course we have easy to grow marigolds in the taller dwarf Brocade mix and the shorter extra dwarf Lemondrop. And don’t forget to 10″ Nasturtium pot for your deck. We also have a purple Gomphrena and a raspberry Gomphrena. These are great for cutting and drying, don’t need to be staked, are drought-tolerant and heat tolerant and require only average soil.
We still have many herbs to choose from. You might like to try our Vietnamese Coriander. It is a great substitute during the summer when the heat makes it impossible to grow regular cilantro. Vietnamese Coriander is actually Persicaria odorata. It has a wonderful spicy flavor with hints of cilantro. It is used in Southeast Asian cooking and in India. This nutrient dense herb, full of flavonoids, is often eaten fresh in salads, Vietnamese Coriander is also used in soups, stews and summer rolls. It likes partial shade and to stay in moist soil. It can make a nice ground cover under trees and is a perennial in Zone 9, so don’t expect it to overwinter in your garden, but you may dig it up and keep indoors as a house plant for the winter. We also have a very pretty variegated Pineapple Mint and plenty of nice Greek Oregano, English Thyme, Berggarten sage and more.
Please note that while we will bring as many plants as possible to the HLFM, our space is limited. The best selection will always be at the garden during our open hours.
You may setup an appointment outside of our regular open hours by texting Hattie at 302-841-1896, or by sending an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate one or two times that work for you and she will get right back to you with her availability.
