The nursery stock is coming in daily. Another 6,000 perennials arrived today. The perennial planting crew has been planting up a storm. The only problem is.......where to put them? We presently have the 4,000 sq ft perennial house plum full. Benches are full and we have even put the excess on the concrete temporarily. Hoop house 1 has 1300 Knock Out Roses and approximately 2000 perennials. Hoop house 2 has another 4,000 perennials with room hopefully for another 4,000 perennials. Plus another 5,000 perennials will be arriving soon from Oregon. Busy days at the nursery. Plus the landscapers are loading up with approximately 100 yards of mulch daily.

On Friday we have one load of plants coming in from Oklahoma and another truck load from Oregon from three different nurseries. We'll have the best selection of Japanesse Red Maples in St. Louis when the truck gets unloaded. And to top that off, we have a load coming on Monday from PA. We'll have the best selection of azaleas and rhodies in town then. They'll be located in the new shade house along Barrett Station Rd. The shade garden display is adjacent to the shade house creating a great shade display consisting of azaleas, hostas and other shade loving perennials.

ITS GREAT BEING IN THE GARDEN CENTER BUSINESS!!!!!

What did you think about all the hoopla about the CRISTO GATES in Central Park in New York City? If anyone has any political pull, we could display this fine art at Greenscape Gardens. Our walkways in the perennial gardens would definitely be eye catching. Actually, the accident rate at Dougherty Ferry and Barrett Station would probably rise.

LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE.

Science has spent billions of money on research to tell us something we've all known for years that the best medicine is laughter. Reader's Digest has been advocating this philosophy in their monthly column for fifty years. Greenscape Gardens has been advocating this same principle with the Old Sign Philosophy sayings for twelve years. Check out this website for additional heart laughter medicine information.
