VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

The older we get the more we realize the benefit of waiting. Waiting for The Yosh to figure out a problem before we jump in. Waiting for small plants to grow into their full space and splendor. Waiting for the lady bugs to show up and clean the aphids from our milkweed – then waiting for the monarchs to emerge from their chrysalis.

Life and nature will put on quite a show – if you plant the right seeds and wait for it.

Sincerely,
Cassy and Kirk

Sustain Your Garden

Pesticides dangerous to human and environmental health once banned by the EPA are now back on the market. Healthy gardens, maintained with skill and expertise, repel and control pests naturally.

If you are DIY, we invite you to learn, not spray, to protect your health as you beautify your garden. See our  Summer Maintenance Checklists to help your garden stay healthy and in balance.
