Who Grew Zinnias this year???
Dear Triple Oaks Friends ,
Hope you are surviving the heat and watering deeply. Remember that you want to encourage plant roots to go down deep to protect them from summer's heat and winter's cold.  It is ok for plants to dry a little in between watering, but do not let them wilt!

Come see our awesome herbs. Basil is lush and fragrant, parsley is fantastic and can be put in the ground now for use until winter and then some. Come get some herbs today. Buy three and the fourth of same price is free when you mention this newsletter . 

Mandelvilla Plants 50 % 0ff when you mention newsletter.

I love the beautiful tropical mandevilla vines. The red ones are my favorites, but we also have white and a few pink. You can buy them now at 50 % off the original price. We have quite a few as we got them in a  bit late this spring and missed the Mother Day's demand for them.  However, it is not too late to put one out on your deck, pool mandevilla redpatio or front porch. Repot it and feed it well to make it beautiful and your watering a bit easier. I like to keep a saucer under my topicals so they have more water in this hot weather. 

Did you know that these lush, colorful plants can be brought in over the winter and kept in a sunny  window. With some care they will remain beautiful and with enough sun even bloom.

Check other summer blooming hardy shrubs such as awesome hibiscus with huge blooms, crape myrtle, vitex, butterfly bushes, glossy abelia, knock out roses and lots more. Add some summer and full color now.

New Shipment of Citrus has arrived

 We just received a shipment of beefy Citrus trees including Improved Meyer Lemon, Seedless Lisbon Lemon, Eureka Frost Lemon, Kaffir Lime, and Pineapple Sweet Citrus. These plants are in one gallon pots and will soon send out lots of new growth and fragrant bloom. They need to grow outside in the sunny summer humidity and do not need to come in till late October or early November depending on the weather. We love to have a few in sunny windows all winter ! They are fragrant and colorful when the fruit ripens.

   Citrus always tastes better when tree ripened and picked at the optimal time.  That is even possible in our northerly climate growing them in containers and bringing them inside during the winter.   My Mexican Lime is almost ready this year and I'm going to savor them inside of a cold Corona on a hot day.  ( LK likes a slice of tangy orange in a cold glass of Blue Moon brew)

Sourwood Trees in stock - Lily of the Valley Tree Fragrant Summer Blooms!

Sourwood or Oxydendrum arboreum also known as Lily of the Valley Tree is a rare sought after native (to the Mid South/Appalachia) tree with wonderful summer fragrant flowers and some of the best red fall color of any tree.  We have a nice collection of them in stock now for summer/fall planting, these trees are around 7-8' tall in containers and are big enough to make an impact in the landscape but small enough to fit in a car and plant yourself.  Plant them now for a magnificent fall display in the landscape.

Who Grew Zinnias this year???

Pictured are Zinnia's grown from seed, Renee's Garden seed from Triple Oaks.  Its not too late to plant them, and one packet of seed makes way more flowers than you have vases.  I have little bouquets in several vessel's around the house and am now getting creative with bottles, ball jars, shot glasses and any way to display them.
