It won't be long before folks are heading to the garden centres to see what’s what in the world of ornamentals. I’ve already stopped in at a few nurseries, but around here in Southern Ontario, the droves don’t come out until mid-May and many garden centres, especially the smaller ones, are still closed or not fully stocked yet.
|This family-run nursery near Elora, Ontario was an exception as it was well stocked in mid-April.|
Their selection of sedums and coleus was incredible!
Last May, I received a variety of plants to trial from Proven Winners, all of which will be newly available at retail this year. With our last frost date just around the corner, I thought now would be a good time to talk about some of the winners in my garden. I’ve highlighted each of these on Instagram, but I’ll provide a few more details on my experiences in this post. If you don’t follow me on Instagram fear not - all the info I posted there is also included here 😊
