Hummingbird visiting Salvia 'Wendy's Wish' at Wyatt Farms





Our little Hummingbird friend was having so much fun floating from flower to flower in the greenhouse.  There were actually 2 hummingbirds on this particular day, and it was so amazing to watch them dip and dive as if they were playing with each other.  Salvia 'Wendy's Wish' and Salvia 'Black and Blue' appeared to be the fan favorite for the day.


The evenings are brighter with the blooms of this Moon Vine, which only open at night.  I hope you got the chance to purchase one while we had them in stock.  This is an annual vine so when frost comes, it will die but you can collect the seeds for replanting next year or purchase the vine from us next spring.

We have so many NEW things arriving in the garden center.  I have included pictures of some below in our 'What's New' Section, just to give you a taste.  But you must come in and see for yourself.


Are you having trouble getting your kids to eat their vegetables?  Try letting them grow their own.  If they grow it, changes are they will eat it.  Fall Veggie gardens are lots of fun.  We have 4 packs of broccoli, collards, cabbage and brussel sprouts to start in your garden.  Hmmmm, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.


Mums, Pansies, and Snapdragons will be arriving soon.  Watch your email for notifications of their arrival. 


I look forward to seeing you in the Garden Shop soon. 

Happy Gardening,

Bess Thompson
