Hard at work....

Chiyoko was hard at work all day pulling grafted Wisteria orders for Spring Shipments.

More signs of Spring...

This weeks signs of Spring in the garden are our favorite Cornus mas cultivar 'Spring Glow'

Also Sycopsis sinensis the "Fig Hazel" this China Native of the Witch Hazel Family doesn't have the show stopping flowers of the Hamamelis but they are certainly worth a second look & the plant is reliably evergreen down to zone 7.

You kind of have to get down on your knees to enjoy the winter flowers on Sweetbox. But it worth making the effort! We picked up this unnamed species from Woodlanders Nursery back in 2002 and it's been growing happily under our Doug Firs ever since.

Time to get back to work!

Well after a long winter break, it's time to get back to work! We have finally finished cleaning up the garden of all the winter debris & its beginning to show signs of life again!
