SPRING IS HERE!
We have a great selection of Pansies and violas to plant NOW! We also have many other frost tolerant plants to partner with your pansies. Harden them off for a few days to acclimate them to the cool nights before planting.
It is time to plant your cole crop vegetables! Carrots, lettuce, peas, radish, turnips, spinach, arugula, broccoli, potatoes, asparagus roots, onions, garlic, swiss chard, mustard greens and kale. We have seeds, bulbs and starter plants in stock.
Now is a great time to sprinkle out new seed to thicken your lawn! Remember to not seed and apply a pre-emergent at the same time or your seed won’t sprout. Most Denver lawns are primarily bluegrass. We like to add a fine bladed fescue. Bluegrass likes the cool spring and fall weather best and poops out when the heat of summer comes on. The fescue prefers the heat of summer over the cool spring and fall so the two partner together nicely for a beautiful lawn all the time! Low Grow Low Maintenance is our preferred local blend of lawn seed.
Need or want a new plant for indoors? No worries, we have a wonderful selection of house plants, succulents, airplants, cacti and pots to put them all in! Get 25% off a ceramic pot when you buy a houseplant.

FYI -- It is important to keep to a consistent watering schedule. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of watering thoroughly when you water. This encourages deep roots to form which increases the drought tolerance of plants.
We also recommend providing fresh water for birds and other small animals that may reside in your landscape. During dry periods and during the winter, water can be very difficult for them to find. We have birdbath dicers to help keep water available even on cold days!
PESTS and other issues…
It can be very difficult for us to give accurate pest advice over the phone. Please bring in fresh samples of problems in a ziploc baggie and we’ll diagnose and advise you on choices for control. For lawn issues we prefer a large sample...approx. 1 ft square and 6in deep. Preferably 1/2 good and 1/2 bad so we can see how the problem is progressing through the lawn. Thank you and we look forward to helping your plants be beautiful!
