This week we feature the Jersey Knight Asparagus.

This perennial root and stem vegetable greets us every spring! Whether you like it fresh, steamed, or smothered in Hollandaise sauce, Asparagus is a great choice for your garden this year.

Unlike most vegetables, this perennial asparagus will provide many years of spring produce for your family. Jersey Knight is an all-male variety (male asparagus typically produces better crop yields because they don’t have to expend energy in producing flowers and fruit) that offers cold hardiness and superior disease resistance. Prepare a permanent, well drained spot in your garden for this prolific plant. After harvest, the asparagus produces fern-like foliage that lasts throughout the summer.


Early blooming perennials for you to enjoy from February to summer

This week we feature the FrostKiss Series of Hellebores.

The world of Hellebores is always changing, improving the cutting edge! The new Frostkiss Series is destined to become a garden classic, with blooms varying in color from fosty- pink to bold red or white speckled, just to list a few of our favorites. This deer resistant, easy to grow perennial is a must have for every gardener. Naturally drought tolerant, the Hellebore FrostKiss Series is unique with forward facing flowers on burgundy stems that parade above pink to silver veined leaves. Their glorious blooms open in late winter and last through early spring.
