Summer is going by so quickly this year with it’s late start. Now it’s already time for mums. They are looking good, getting bigger every day. So big that it’s hard to find the label in each pot! The labels are there, however, so you can tell what color they will be if they haven’t shown a bloom yet. The set-up is for self-service, but don’t hesitate to call us, toot the horn, or come up to the house for help.
We’re having a 50% off sale starting on July 4th, and continuing until all the plants are sold. Then we will close for a few weeks and re-open when the mums are ready for sale. This is the first time in 33 years that we have closed during the summer! Now that we’ve decided to do that, it makes perfect sense. What took us so long to figure that out?
Our CSA members have been picking kale, chard, squash, cucumbers, peppers and herbs and are ready for lots of tomatoes!
We've been busy planting and will shortly be filling buckets of fresh cut flowers from the field and greenhouse. For the summer into fall season, we are growing ninebark, hydrangea, lisianthus, sunflower, zinnia, chocolate lace flower, ageratum, statice, and dahlia.
Potted mums are sizing up nicely to be ready to ring in the next seasonal transition, and then we'll be planting yet more cut flowers for the winter.
Thanks for following along and enjoying each season's beautiful selections here at The Blue Bell!
We are off to a great start for the 2018 season and are happy to see your returning faces in the greenhouse, and before long our CSA members will be back to pick fresh veggies.
Come by and ring The Blue Bell!
