You need a Wisteria

For anyone who visits my garden center in late April to mid May, they can’t help but notice the two wisteria vines I have growing over an arbor that frames the entrance to our perennial department. They have been planted there for at least 5-6 years (probably more like 8-10) and have never failed to be absolutely covered with masses of fragrant blooms every spring. It is a sight to behold and a wonderful smell to enjoy. It is quite frankly most impressive if I do say so myself.

Plant ideas for Father

With Father’s Day just a few days away I thought it would be fitting to throw out an idea or two that are sure to be a hit with dear old dad. Over the years of operating a garden center I have come to realize that there are certain plants that most men can’t resist. To no surprise to the ladies, these plants are typically coarse, large-leafed creatures that may seem a bit unrefined and ill-kempt in the garden, just like dad.
