Seasonal Plants

 African Violets!

African Violets are stunning tropical plants whose flowers resemble violets in color and shape.  Their cheerful flowers perched just above a neat rosette of dark-green, fuzzy leaves may bloom constantly throughout the year.

There are thousands of cultivars, which provide a palette of flower colors that include lavenders, blues, pinks, reds and whites.  In addition there are miniature African Violets.

This plant is really fussy about growing conditions.  For maximum blooms, they demand 10 to 14 hours of bright but indirect light per day and an eight hour rest period in darkness.

African Violets thrive best with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees F and nighttime temperatures near 65 degrees F.

Avoid overwatering; water just enough so that the soil is uniformly moist but not saturated.  Use tepid or room temperature water; cold water can damage the root system and will cause spotting if spilled on leaves.

Too little or too much fertilizer can result in a lack of blossoms.  Use and African Violet food to ensure the right proportions of nutrients.  Experienced growers use a diluted solution of fertilizer with each watering.

African Violets need to be repotted about once a year, but they can be persnickety about this too.  They prefer to be a bit potbound, so use a new pot that is only slightly larger than the old one.  Remove about one-third of the old soil and replace it with a potting mix.  Make sure that the crown of the plant is just above the soil line.  Water thoroughly and the job is complete.

African Violets really are easy to grow as long as you care for them on their own terms.  When rewarded with a windowsill full of beautiful, blooming plants, you'll know that they were certainly worth all of the fuss.

Jolly Lane Greenhouse has a large selection of African Violets for you to try out.  Come in and see us!

Jolly Lane Tips

Landscape Design!

Jolly Lane Greenhouse offers in-house landscape design for homeowners.  Designer, Liz Albrecht, can create a customized landscape design for your home, and Jolly Lane offers all of the plant material necessary to complete that design.  There is a $35.00 per hour fee for Liz's services.  Most single family home designs require one to two hours of actual drafting time.  We have a landscape design packet for you to fill out and return.  We need at least a dozen photographs of the property taken from different angles, including all areas to be landscaped.  If possible provide a copy of your site plan or blue print.

The following questions should be answered to help Liz customize the design for your home.

1.  How many hours a week are you willing to spend working in the planting beds?

2. What color palette are you most attracted to?  Cool colors - blue, green, lavender, white, silver or pink.  Warm colors - Yellow, orange, red or purple.  All colors - enjoy a nice combination of colors.

3.  Do you have problems with deer in your area?

4.  Do you have small children who need play areas such as swing set or sandbox?

5.  Do you have pets?  If yes, please describe.

6.  Please include information regarding any special areas that need to be addressed:  such as unsightly views or good views, low wet areas, hot dry areas, etc.

7.  Make a list of plants that you would like included in your design or plants and colors that you specifically do not like.

8.  Do you have any special interests like cut flowers, birds, butterflies, etc?

We can creat outdoor rooms, frame or screen a view, provide walkways, and make your home more attractive and valuable.

Come in now and get your landscape design packet, so you're ready to plant when we get everything in this spring.
