Annuals

Annual gardens add diversity to your landscape; they can be redesigned every year!

Annuals do not overwinter and need to be replanted every year. During the planting season we offer tried and true annuals as well as new and unusual varieties. Try at least one new plant annually — you might just find a new favorite! Looking for something specific? Please do not hesitate to call 610-876-7116 to inquire about our inventory. If we don't have the annual you're looking for, we can reach out to our local vendors.

Seeds & Bulbs

Looking to start from scratch? We're proud to offer an array of the best selection of vegetable seeds and plants available anywhere.

Whether you're looking for vegetables, heirlooms, herbs or flowers, all of our seeds are GMO free! We offer organic varieties of the highest quality. Two of the companies that we deal with regularly are Botanical Interests and Burpee Seeds.

Keep in mind that we now carry seed tape. Seed tapes are the perfect, no-waste way to plant where space really counts — in containers, raised beds, or small gardens. Each strip of biodegradable paper is embedded with perfectly spaced seeds; simply unroll into a planting furrow and cover. Planting is precise, there's little or no thinning needed, and the germination rate is outstanding.

Planting Instructions

How to plant

  • Annuals should not be planted until after danger of frost has passed, or use precaution if planting early.
  • Perennials and cool-season annuals can be planted in early spring as soon as the ground can be worked.
  • Before planting, water your plants and the soil in your bed well.
  • Remove  plants from their pots gently
  • Loosen the roots by gently pulling them or cutting them if necessary to encourage them to grow out into the soil.
  • If plants are in peat pots, tear the pots slightly to make it easy for the roots to grow through.
  • Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball.
  • Put the recommended amount of fertilizer/soil moist and mix with the backfill soil.
  • Set the plant in the hole at the same level at which it was growing in the container.
  • Be sure the plant is not deeper than the original soil.
  • Add the backfill soil with amendments and carefully firm the soil around the roots.
  • Water well after planting and keep moist until the plants are established and new growth has started.
  • A thin layer of mulch will help keep the moisture in the ground and deter weed growth.

2018 Plant of the year- Allium 'Millenium'

The Perennial Plant Association has awarded the title Perennial Plant of the Year® 2018 to Allium ‘Millenium’. This herbaceous perennial, relative to the common onion, is a workhorse of the late summer garden. This cultivar is the result of a multigenerational breeding program involving Allium nutans and A. lusitanicum (formerly Allium senescens ssp montanum), selected for late flowering with masses of rose-purple blooms, uniform habit with neat shiny green foliage that remains attractive season long, and for its drought resistant constitution. 

Pollinators will flock to Allium ‘Millenium’! Butterflies and bees will thank you for adding ‘Millenium’ to your garden. Pair with shorter goldenrods (Solidago sp.) such as ‘Little Lemon’ that reaches one and a half feet tall. Goldenrods are late summer pollinator magnets that will offer beautiful contrasting golden yellow blooms.  Another late summer re-blooming companion perennial to consider is Oenothera fremontii ‘Shimmer’ with its low-growing silvery foliage adorned daily with large yellow flowers that open late afternoon and fade to an apricot color by morning. Being tap-rooted this evening primrose is well behaved, not creeping through the garden, for which, rhizomatous spreading evening primroses are famously known. Allium ‘Millenium’ looks great backed with the silver foliage of Perovskia atriplicifolia, Russian sage, or the native Scutellaria incana, downy skullcap, with its numerous spikes of blue flowers above trim green foliage. Or simply plant ‘Millenium’ en masse and enjoy the rose-purple display!  

This low-maintenance dependable perennial will not disappoint! Blooming at a time when most of our garden begins to decline in the tired excess of the season, ‘Millenium’ offers much needed color.  It is truly an all-season plant that offers attractive shiny foliage spring through summer and caps off the season with its crown of perfectly round rose-purple flower umbels!
