We are having a FLASH SALE this weekend (Friday through Sunday); the foliage plant: COLEUS
These are Proven Winner hybrid plants in 4.5-inch pots that we normally sell for $5.29 each. Centuries ago these were the most sort after garden plants for color by the aristocracy. Coleus really dresses up the landscape and they grow so well in sun and shade. That is my problem; they are growing too well. I am going to let these plants go this weekend for Ninety-nine cents each. That is $0.99 for you mathematicians. After the weekend, the price will go back to $5.29 as they slowly disappear into the farm’s landscape. If you have a flower bed, and no coleus, you are missing out.
Still picking: strawberries, lettuce, kale, chard, rhubarb, radishes, sugar snap peas, beets, cut flowers, scallions, and eggs. You can start eating off the land at this point. Have a vegetable egg foo yung (use our scallions and sunflower sprouts) with a side of sautéed pea pods served with homemade mint tea and then a strawberry smoothie for a dessert beverage.
We have a large variety of potted annual flowers, in addition to the aforementioned coleus, that make great landscape plants. They come in large 4.5-inch pots and if you buy 10, they are only $4.79 each.
