We are in the greenhouse planting...........

Wow, here we are again, it's a balmy 25C and we are in our greenhouse planting annual baskets! When we leave to go home you almost forget that it is 40 degrees colder outside and that you need a jacket! We have planted over 800 hanging baskets in the last 24 hours. I did up some beautiful shade basket combo's with trailing lobeila, fushia, and torenia! I did though start with about 100 bright colored baskets for a sunny location. I wasn't ready to think about shade when I first started. I used some petunias, calabrachoa, verbena, nemesia, osteospermum, and straw flowers to name a few! Jennifer was doing up Proven Winner combo baskets, while Susan was working on the old standby favorites! I heard her talking about ivy geraniums, torenia, and petunia's with Proven Winners diamond frost! Tomorrow we are going to finish up the unique cone planters that are so popular! Im thinking the birch bark one will go great with a toffee twist grass and some black eyed sue vines! I cant wait to see our baby plants grow! I have some pictures of last year's baskets I will post for you to look at! Well that is about all I can say for now! Flower names, growth habits, sun/shade preferences are all that I can think of now! That and what colors of annuals with compliment each other the most! So on that note, happy dreaming of sunny days ahead!!!! Tammy
