“Lambs ear is one of my favorite plants found throughout the garden, and is available at this years plant sale. Its silvery, fuzzy foliage bring a nice contrast in color and texture to the garden. It has all season interest, and holds up well during our winters making it a winner in my book!” – Hunter Clark

Garden Tips

  • Plant in threes– one for you, one for the kids and one for the bees.
  • Right plant right place.
    • (Meaning the right sun or shade requirements, watering. Consider grouping plants with similar requirements together to make your gardening load lighter)
  • Soil is King
    • (meaning build your house starting with a good foundation so your home won’t crumble)
  • If you build it they will come. If you want birds, pollinators, or just beneficial insects—grab plants that they would find inviting. Shop by category when looking through our plant sale to find plants that suit your needs!
