It’s Green-up Time!

After a couple of false starts, early spring arrived full force, with Hellebores, Forsythia, Cherries, Daffodils and species Tulips all in full blossom now, and much more in the lineup for high spring.

Here at Pondside we had terrific weather for opening day and an enthusiastic crowd of shoppers eager to get their hands in the soil and start their gardening season off as early as possible. We're well stocked already, with a greenhouse full of perennials on the grow and a yard of great shrubs and trees ready to find new homes. And as always we have a great selection of pottery, handmade furniture, the best Dutch garden tools, and much more!

We'll be getting our annuals in a couple of weeks, and new perennials, shrubs and trees are arriving frequently, so stop by and see what's in stock while the selection is still good. The cool weather, sunny days and frequent showers make for ideal planting weather, so take advantage!


Just Around the Corner…

Brooks are burbling, birds are babbling and buds are breaking here in the Hudson valley, so spring is imminent in spite of lingering winter weather. We're pleased to announce that we'll be opening for the 2017 season on Saturday, April 15th, so stop in, say hello and ease your tax-time blues with a dose of horticultural happiness... plants are the best anti-depressants!

The upside of all the snow and precipitation we've endured is plentiful groundwater supplies heading into the warm months, a welcome change from last year's near-drought, so we're very optimistic that this will be a banner growing season and we're stocking more great plant material than ever with that in mind. I'll be getting my first deliveries of early . . .
