For the spring TFM plant sale in 2017 we will be offering the following expertly designed gardens. All the plants will look fabulous together and follow the theme. You can order one or more of them and we will select the plants for you, box them up, put your name on the box. You can pick them up June 3. We will contact you after you place your order, to answer your questions and ensure you are still happy with your new garden.
Sorry, but we are no longer accepting orders for this spring’s Garden in a Box. But if you come to the Friends of Manito Plant sale this Saturday, we can help you find very similar arrangements.
Child’s Garden Delight
Each plant in this selection has a special characteristic that makes it fun and exciting. Many have special smells, like the Hyssop Tutti Frutti (Agastache) and the Bee Balm Bubblegum Blast (Monarda). Others like the Lamb’s Ears and the Yellow Horned Poppy have fun textures. These are just the thing to get your child or grandchild, or just the child in you, having fun in the garden.
This one is perfect for under a tree where sometimes all the watering gets sucked up by the tree roots. Once established, these plants should add lots of interest to one of those problem areas.
This combination of plants that are sure to attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Help support the wild bee populations and enjoy the colorful butterflies and those amazing hummingbirds.
If your concept of a garden is that it needs to produce something good to eat, then this group of perennials is for you. This includes asparagus, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, the exotic Goji berries, and even some seedless grapes. Plant this garden and get ready to cook up some home-made jams and jellies or your favorite dessert. All plants are cold-hardy to the Spokane area.
Deer Resistant and Zone-4 Hardy Garden
All of these plants are both resistant to the munching of marauding deer, but they also can withstand a winter that can get as cold as -30 degrees Fahrenheit. If you live out of town a little bit, or just want plants that are sure to withstand the cold, these can do it. And the deer shouldn’t bother them.
