The original butterfly garden, in its mid-June riot time!
Stella's Gardens provides all of these at your local farmer's markets in NE Iowa / SW Wisconsin -
Special requests for perennial flower or vegetable starts for spring or fall planting will be happily considered!
See Schedule for planned appearances at NE Iowa and SW Wisconsin markets.
It will be time to think about what you want in your garden next year. See the Products Page for what we're thinking about starting for Spring, 2015.
This picture shows a combination of wildflowers and garden flowers: butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa,) purple and pale coneflowers (E. purpurea, E. pallida,) tuberous begonias and an odd geranium...not ready to plant yet, this was a picture taken in April!
All vegetables, flowers and plant starts will be done using the methods I have used for years - sterile potting soil for seedlings, and while my methods are mostly organic (no pesticides, fungicides or herbicides under normal conditions) I do use non-organic fertilizer.
