Say “YES” to Fall Planting!

2018-04-24T15:27:52-05:00October 22nd, 2017|

In case you were uncertain, let us assure you that the fall is still a great time to plant.  If you put it off over the summer, let the cooler weather encourage you to get outside into your plant beds to update your gardens with flowering shrubs, evergreens, or trees.  As growers of nursery stock, we have a full selection of options for you to choose from on site, listed at wholesale prices everyday.  Have any questions about planting in the fall?  Give us a call, and we would be happy to help!

This is an easy way to add colour and whimsy to your front porch or backyard.  We have lots of beautiful combinations to choose from. If you don't see exactly what you want (or rather, what mom would like!), we can create a custom planter for you (please contact us in advance for exact turnaround time).

2. Herb Planter

A herb planter is a thoughtful gift idea for the mom who loves to cook! We have multiple sizes and themes available, or you can create your own!

One final idea:  If you are running out of time between now and Sunday to come by and get a gift, why not consider making the gift buying a great experience with mom? Pick up mom, grab a latte on the way, and stroll through the garden centre together to choose a gift she will love!

We Heart Herbs

2018-04-24T15:38:29-05:00May 11th, 2017|

We love herbs!  Come on in to see the great selection of over 50 varieties of different herbs we have available this spring.  Herbs are a great addition to your spring and summer cooking, to flavour dishes without adding salt.  They not only make your food enticing and tasty, they also have a lot of health benefits! If you don’t have a lot of room for a garden, herbs grow well in pots on the patio: a perfect addition to a small outdoor space.

Not sure which herbs you want to plant together, or looking for a fun gift idea? We have herb planters ready for you in different sizes and themes such as culinary favourites, scented collection, and fresh classics.  Follow along on our Instagram (@paternonurseries) and Instagram Stories for more pictures, ideas, and recipes!
