Chocolate and Flowers Valentine Herbal Tea Get your valentine (or yourself) this blend of cacao husks with roses and hibiscus flowers, with a sweet and healthy-heart treat that is naturally delicious.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s spring, or at least the daffodils at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse think it is. I believe I’ve seen some red, red robins bobbin’ around among them too, but I’m sorry that I can’t add any of those to this year’s bouquets. I will have a limited number of daffodil bouquets available this week, and will do my best to fill all orders. But as always, the number of blooms available on Tuesdays is very weather-dependent. I’m actually thankful for the cooler weather, as 40’s and 50’s will prolong bloom a lot better than 60’s and 70’s. I’m hoping to have blooms for three weeks, so I suggest that you order early and often. If there are any unfilled orders this week, I will ask if you want me to fill your order next week instead. Enjoy this early breath of spring, as they smell so sweet inside your home!

You know spring is almost here when you see the primroses, pulmonarias, and woodland phlox beginning to show their colors. To tell the truth, these guys are jumping the gun just a wee bit, but we’re very happy to be able to add them back to the market. You know we’re still likely to get an ice storm sometime during February. Be sure to cover these beauties with a bedsheet or move to an unheated garage if the weather turns cold and/or nasty.
