Kimono Clips, they are all the rage!

How about a Mother's Day Windchime??

Windchimes provide a calming effect, creating melodious sounds, generating meditative feelings,  and engaging senses other than just hearing. Listening to wind chimes may reduce stress and promote relaxation, and are considered to have a healing effect on the body and mind. They can create upbeat feelings, and bring a sense of balance and inner peace in one’s life.

Now what mom doesn't need that??

We carry Woodstock Chimes and Music of the Spheres, as well as other various windbells and glass chimes.

Every mom deserves a little pampering!

Create a Cut-Flower Garden

Cut flower gardens are grown specifically for cutting and creating bouquets or arrangements. The flowers are selected based on their bloom time, size and color. Ideally they have long stems and maintain a long shelf life in a vase. They are generally a mix of annuals, perennials, flowering bushes, bulbs and filler plants. Purposefully choosing a wide variety of flowers with differing bloom times will allow you to enjoy bouquets throughout the growing season, including spring, summer and fall.

If this sounds interesting to you then see our list below.

Garland Nursery's Top 12 Cut-Flower Garden plants:













Keep in mind that several of these plants can be started by seed, but if you want instant gratification, we have a nice selection of all of these plants to choose from.

A shout out to the Pond Plant People!

We NOW have an awesome selection of pond plants including water lettuce and hyacinths.

Plant of the Week...

SunBelievable Brown Eyed Girl!

This is a compact sunflower (2' H x 3' W) full sun plant with intense vibrancy that promises a big impact in your garden. Developed by Monrovia, this fast-growing annual sunflower is unique. Rather than expending energy on producing seeds or towering heights, it focuses on producing an abundance of mesmerizing blooms.

Fun Fact: When first being tested, Monrovia counted an astonishing 1,000 blooms  when planted from spring to the first-frost. This was from a single plant! WOW!

Why we love

Japanese Maples

Japanese maples are an incredible ornamental landscaping option.

They are notable for their beautiful foliage, boasting incredible hues that change colors throughout the season ranging from fiery red to majestic purple, orange to golden yellow, and bright or dark green tones.

These maple trees are also highly sought after for their toughness. That’s right, many varieties can grow just about anywhere, under many conditions, and in many different types of soils.

And if you have a small yard or garden and don’t want to shade all your other plants, many will mature in to nice compact sizes.

Because we love them so much we like to have lots of varieties to choose from. You will have no problem finding one that is the perfect one for your own landscape.

FYI, we relocated the Japanese Maple Area this year. It is now behind the Perennial Shade Area on your way to the new Pottery Area.

We think they will be much happier there.

A little birdy told us that we NOW have Sensitive Plants in stock.

Mimosa pudica is commonly called sensitive plant, sleep plant or touch-me-not plant. Its fine texture makes a nice addition to your indoor garden, but the real attraction is the folding leaves. When the leaves are gently touched, or as the day darkens into night the leaves fold and droop. After an hour or two of daylight or being touched they slowly bounce back to their original appearance.

It’s thought that this response may be a defense mechanism, since animals tend to skip wilted plants to dine on healthier specimens. The wilting also helps conserve moisture.

They are a strange and wonderful plant that makes a great conversation piece and the kiddos love them.

Visit them in our Houseplant Room.

Fanta wishes all her Garland Nursery Moms and all the other Moms out there A Very Happy Meowthers Day!
