What Should I Plant in the Winter?
How Do I Take Care of It?
For those “Do It Yourselfers” out there you have come to the right place. Search through the our plant database to find the ideal plants for your landscaping and gardening needs, right from the comfort of your home.
The Right Time to Plant
Winter has arrived, and for those who have perennials planted it means they’ve gone dormant. Also, the spring and fall blooms have gone from outdoors, but for indoors a whole new world is waiting to live. Now is the time to focus on Boxwoods, Pines, Spruces & Houseplants.
Poinsettias & Seasonal Plants
To add some color to your home throughout the holiday season, we have a variety of seasonal plants that also make excellent gifts. Poinsettias are available starting around Thanksgiving and can last all the way through Christmas. Other seasonal favorites include Christmas cacti and Norfolk Pines.
As summer and fall annuals begin to die out with the frost, evergreen tip containers can be an excellent alternative to your front porch. We sell a variety of styles and sizes that stay fresh with the cold outdoor temperatures. In addition, accessories can be added to go along with the different winter holidays.
Trees & Shrubs
Evergreens are hardier than most trees and shrubs and they can be planted all throughout the winter, as long as the ground is not frozen. Evergreens can also be used to cut small sprigs to use as winter décor in your home. (Examples: Maples, Spirea, Barberry)
Planting a houseplant in a container inside your home during the cold winter months will add some green to your house when nothing outside is green. Houseplants not only can bring beauty to your home but also have many health benefits such as air purification, as well. (Ficus, Dracaena, Calathea)
If you have a sunny window in your kitchen, growing herbs through the winter may be feasible for you. A south-facing window with at least 4 hours of direct sunlight will help your herbs remain healthy. Clip on them all winter to freshen up dishes like pasta with fresh basil or roasted potatoes with fresh rosemary.
