It's been over a year since we did a blog post, primarily because most of the action these days is on our social media pages: on Facebook, and on Twitter. And while the snow continues to fall on Nova Scotia and it seems winter will never leave us, we've been busy planning for spring. We've just put the finishing touches on our new 2014 catalogue, which you can download for yourself.
Among the new plants for this year is 'Campfire' rose from the Canadian Artists series. This rose honours Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, those tremendous artists of yesteryear.
We are really thrilled with this variegated flowering dogwood, 'Akatsuki', which has pink flowers. They contrast far better with the variegated foliage than does the white-flowered form.
For those who love blue flowers, we really recommend blue corydalis (Corydalis elata), which we have found to be very hardy, long blooming, and fragrant to boot. It may go dormant in hot weather like its relatives, the bleeding hearts, but in our climate it keeps growing if it's in moist soil.
That's just a few plants to get you interested...do find us on Facebook to get the latest information. We will be at Saltscapes Magazine's Expo again this year, next month (April 25-27, Exhibition Park, Halifax). Hopefully by then the snow will be gone and spring will have finally found us.
