The Grasses are Growing Quickly at Lovegrass Farm

Our Grasses on May 25, 2012
Wow, plants have really grown this week with all the Sunshine and warm weather!  Looks like this will be the last weekend for cool season grasses for they are starting to send up their flowers.  It is getting dry; we could really use some rain.  We're still busy dividing and transplanting and doing a little weeding when we get a chance.  The warm season grasses have really jumped this week and are all ready for sale.  We are open for business today and tomorrow from 9 to 5.  Come and have a look at our wreaths as well.

We Are Up & Running at Lovegrass Farm

Our field on May 17, 2012
This upcoming weekend (Friday & Saturday from 9-5) will be our third one open for Sales.  We are already sold out of Calamagrostis 'Karl Foerster' & we're getting low on Helictotrichon sempervirens (Blue Oat) and Miscanthus Giganteus.   There are lots of other varieties for sale though as well as perennials, hostas, rose bushes, shrubs, lavender, etc.  The garden grew like crazy overnight with a little rain and warm temperatures.
