Beneficial Insects, Amaryllis & Paperwhite Bulbs


Impatiens & Wildflower Seeds

Get ’em in the ground now!

Plant Impatiens now for winter color in part sun to shade. They will give you show-stopping color into May of next year.

Sow wildflower seeds now for spring blooms.

Amaryllis & Paperwhite Bulbs

October is the month to dig and divide mature, crowded Amaryllis bulbs. This needs to be done every 3 years. We are receiving our Amaryllis bulbs next week at both stores.

We have Narcissus Paperwhite bulbs now! For successful bloom, refrigerate now for 4 weeks. Pot them in soil or water the weekend of Thanksgiving and they will be ready to give as gifts with buds and blooms for Christmas.

Beneficial Insects for Natural Pest Control

Ladybugs’ favorite foods are aphids, mealybugs, spider mites, thrips, and many other soft bodied insects. They should be released in the evening or very early morning or when it is cool or overcast. Moisten the infested plants first and then release the Ladybugs at the base of the plant. Each package contains approx. 1500 Ladybugs for $10.00.

Beneficial Nematodes are microscopic worms that seek out and destroy over 200 kinds of soil dwelling insects including grubs, flea larvae, cutworms, and root knot nematodes. Each package contains approx. 5 million Nematodes for $20.00.
