Happy Spring from all of us at Oak Street! We know all of you have been eager to get out and get planting and we are,
oh, so close! Remember, our last average frost date is mid-April, and with Easter being early this year, we have a few weeks to go before we're out of the woods.
Speaking of Easter, we have everything you need, from Easter Lilies to so much more - orchids, fragrant jasmine wreaths, hydrangeas,
calla lilies, rieger begonias...the greenhouse is gorgeous!
The Nursery Is Filling Up!
Of course, you can plant shrubs, trees and perennials now. Please take a look at the shrubbery
posts on our new website
if you need inspiration! We're also beginning to receive more and more herbs as spring planting season approaches...take a look here
for some of the first in stock - there will be many more!
In fact, if you've been by lately, you've seen the nursery getting greener as we fill it with everything you'll need for your garden this year. We do tend to hold off a bit on the tender annuals...we will have a few in stock and in the coming weeks we'll get more and more as the temperatures become consistently warm in the evening and daytime.
We also like the garden soil to be warm for all the real heat loving tropicals like plumbago, mandevilla and tropical ferns, but our first shipments of these tropicals will arrive at the end of the month for you to plant your pots.
The bottom line is that we want you to be successful in your gardening efforts, and this means putting them out at the right time...having said that we will have some basil, tomatoes and sunpatiens in stock for you die hards that want to get them in the ground early anyway.
If you'd like to bring a planter from home and plant it yourself, we have a U-Pot-It bench
just for you! The people that have taken advantage of this do-it-yourself option have enjoyed it. You might too!
You might even want to pot up some succulents
for yourself - we've gotten in beautiful pots already and will continue to look for the best and prettiest we can find. If you missed the post on these beauties, be sure to take a look - they're hard to resist!
It's Nice To Be Recognized!
In February, Kris
was featured in The Rainforest Garden's blog as a container garden
artisan - it was so exciting to have recognition of the great work Kris and her entire staff does at Oak Street - and, it's an added bonus that people from around the country are showing an interest in our work!
If you have containers you need planted for either inside or out, please let us know well in advance during this busy season so we are able to give them our very best attention. Thank you in advance!
