Annuals are the most vibrant way to show off an entrance, add color to an ordinary vegetable garden, or use as temporary fillers to a newly planted landscape. Whether you have an area that is in full sun to dense shade, Country Farms has the best annuals to work in any environment. Our experts are here to help you create a display with a splash of color. If you need a gift, try giving an annual or two in the perfect pot. Start with a colorful pot or planter, add fresh potting soil and plant. Organic Espoma fertilizers and Miracle-Gro can keep your flowers blooming all season.
Look for our selection of Tropical plants like Hibiscus and Gardenia. These can make excellent houseplants during the winter months.
When you’re finished with your planting, add a fountain or bench to your outdoor space. Listen to the soothing sounds of water from one of our fountains and relax on one of our beautiful benches. And don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers.
”Perennial” simply means life through 2 or more years. Since it is a “softer” plant, it will “die back” prior to our winter when our first freeze occurs and return the next spring. Country Farms carries unique perennials plus the tried and true varieties that are sure to please.
Pennsylvania has many native perennials such as Asclepias tuberosa aka. Butterfly Weed. Some native plants have been bred into new hybrids that make up our perennial selection today. Did you know there are over 20,000 daylilies? Every year new varieties are created and we intend to carry many of those, plus natives and all of your favorites.
Some plants may be a perennial in a warmer climate but too temperature sensitive to survive our winter. We call those “annuals” for this area.
How do we keep perennials healthy? We supply Products for controlling weeds, such as Pre-emergents and Mulch. We carry fertilizers such as Osmocote, Miracle-Gro, and Espoma for those who prefer organic gardening.
Would you like us to design and/or install your perennials? Just get a quote from our design specialists. Our Garden Center Staff are educated in the field of Horticulture and can answer all of your gardening questions.
When is the best time to plant perennials? Anytime the ground is not frozen. We make certain to have our selections hardened off and ready to be planted outdoors as soon as Spring arrives. Don’t forget they will multiply and return the following year with an abundance of beauty.
