The nip of spring is upon us, the geese are flying north, our garden center on State Road is open and the landscape crews are hard at work on spring clean-up’s. Our greenhouse teams have been busy for weeks sowing seeds and waking up the bulbs we prepared in the fall. Once the season starts there’s no time for resting. As welcome as spring is, the best is yet to come!
This Sunday, April 9th, Vineyard Gardens will be hosting the traditional Palm Sunday Open House from 11am to 2pm. It is an island-wide tradition where all the nursery growers open their garden gates to the public for a welcoming preview of what’s in store for the season. While the nurseries' stock is consistent year to year, fashion and trends have a way of freshening up the palette. There are always new discoveries and ‘perennial’ favorites to stumble upon with an early season visit.
Vineyard Gardens Nursery is stocked with vegetable seedlings, from early season greens to peas. We offer a nice range of plants from the mustard family that need to be started early in order to get established before the warm weather hits. We have a gorgeous assortment of Pansies and Iceland Poppies to add spring color to your window boxes. We also carry a wide array of spring bulbs in pots that can be transplanted into mixed planters, incorporated into gift baskets or centerpieces.
Mark it on your calendars,, Sunday April 9th, a day to celebrate our local Nurseries and the beauty of spring! As an added bonus, there is always a special give-away to give a jump start to your spring garden!
