Growing Spring Flowers

We design 150 Custom Premium  mixes for our popular moss hanging baskets whose pot sizes range from 14”-18”. In addition we pot approximately 500 single variety moss hangers and about 800 traditional hanging baskets. We grow geraniums, fuschia, impatiens, verbena, begonias, calibrachoa, lobelia, scaevola, and more in our hanging baskets.

We grow 5700 3.5” annuals for use mostly in our colorful memorial day cemetery baskets. These are all planted in early March. We grow 13,000 4.5” Annuals for customers to plant in their yards and window boxes. We use these well cared for plants to create custom planters for clients all over the region.
