The sun is helping us finally and things are blooming rapidly. We are planting as fast as we possibly can. We are attempting to get sunflowers sooner than we ever have before with the help of some tunnels. We are also going to try some white sunflowers and a new variety of Dahlia this season. We have plenty of French tulips available in various colors, parrots, and doubles. The best new double of the season is our wedding gift double in a soft pink color. We will have some curly willow left and its budding it's beautiful! Daffodils are full force with double petal white and Bridal Crown. If you haven't tried our Daffodils you need to try and witness the wonderful fragrance it's so intense. We will be adding Thermopsis this week, imagine Lupine but yellow and Viburnum Lantana... it's not lace cap that comes on later season.
A couple of new offerings finally! We will be sending Daffodils in multi bloom heads and we have a few bunches of Forsythia that we were able to harvest before it froze last night. We have tulips in various colors and a few parrot tulips coming on.
I think we got three days of sun in the last week and that's enough to put us back in the tulip business. We have red and pink and possibly some others colors coming on with a little more sun this weekend. We had yellow double Akebono and we will have a few gudoshnik doubles available. Ranunculus is coming on and good availability with red and pink and white and yellow/orange blend is somewhat limited. We still have curly will and red and yellow dogwood available.
Well mother nature is not helping us and is really slowing us down. We are between the heated greenhouses and non-heated greenhouses and very limited unless we get sunny days soon! We will actually be delaying delivery this week to Wood River Valley to Tuesday in hopes we can get more tulips to bloom as the last week the cloudy days have really slowed us down. We have a few French and hopefully by Tuesday the yellow Akebono doubles will be ready. We still have red and yellow stems and some curly willow left. Ranunculus is starting and very limited but have some white and pinks and hopefully red coming soon. Sun comes our way a slight chance of Daffodils also.
