Market News

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has recently added several new items and brought back some old favorites. New on the market this week is Lemongrass, so useful in Asian cuisine. Lavender, Greek Oregano, Sage, and Basil also rejoin the herb plant lineup this week. There is no need to buy dried and bottled herbs from the grocery when you can get just about any herb fresh-cut on Wednesday morning from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse.

The tall red Carnations are beginning a second bloom cycle, soon to be followed by the dwarf reds and several shades of pink within the next week or two. When they get back into full bloom, I will once again offer the “Garden in a Vase.” We have just one very special large Flame Violet hanging basket, whose beautiful bronze foliage and bright orange-red blooms would be perfect on your porch or patio this summer. And we have one very large beautiful “Hanging Herb Garden,” containing parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, a wonderful gift for any chef or baker. The dwarf red reblooming daylily is also looking really good this week, although it’s in limited supply, and the tall double orange daylily will join it by the end of the weekend.

All the houseplants and out-of-bloom perennials are still available as well. Check my list and find something for that problem area or empty place in the garden. With over a hundred plants to select from, you’re sure to find that perfect one. And I’m always available by email if you have any problems or questions.


Thanks so much!


Erdmann Farm has added a second variety of tomatoes, arugula, and cucumbers!
