white Clematis blooms

Whether you pronounce it Cle-MA-tis or CLE-matis, our Grown by Al's clematis are growing strong at our Farm in Hubbard, and available at Al's.  They are perfect for encouraging up your trellis, along the fence, or over arbors.  Some clematis have double blooms, and some have two bloom periods in a single year.  They are easy to care for, and very low maintenance.  We love clematis at Al's, no matter how you say it.  Here are some of our favorites.

Spring is finally here, and the days are starting to warm up. It's the perfect time to get out of the house and into your garden. There is plenty to do, and a little preparatory work now can insure gardening success in the months ahead.

Onions are one of the easiest vegetables to grow. A member of the Allium family, onion plants can be started from seed, seedlings, or onion sets. Onion sets eliminate a lot of guess work, and is one of the easiest methods of planting onions. We recommend onion sets because they are perfect for the home gardener as they produce onions for immediate use and for storage.

With their wide array of colors, pansies and violas are an easy way to add spring hues to your yard and garden. They have a long blooming time, so you will enjoy them all spring long. Line walkways, or use them in your early spring containers. Their abundant blooms will really make your containers sing!

What can you plant now that will give you a jump start on spring in your garden? Dormant perennials are a great answer. They might not look like much now, but dormant perennials allow you to take full advantage of these cool early spring months.  By planting dormant perennials or shrubs, you are encouraging their root systems to grow strong, resulting in bigger more beautiful plants this spring.

roses

There are so many ways to use roses in your garden and landscape, as they really are great problem solvers. You may need a little privacy, or just a spot of color – roses can do that! You may have a small space and need to “go vertical” – roses can do that! If you need to cover up that ugly utility box – roses can do that!
