For those of you who start dreaming about the flavor of a garden-fresh tomato long before August, or who can’t wait to make homemade baba ghanouj from your home-grown eggplants, here’s a sneak preview of our vegetable varieties this spring (see footnote). In addition to these edible plants, we are also growing six varieties of Fuchsia baskets, six varieties of sun-loving Trixi baskets (petunia, calibrachoa, verbena, bacopa), three types of hardy (shrub) Fuchsia, colorful potted geraniums, and a wide selection of perennial herbs and annual bedding plants.
