Beautiful Hanging Baskets

Brighten up your Long Island garden with spectacular, colorful annuals. Our homegrown hanging basket combinations of petunias, begonias, and many other favorites will create the perfect ambiance for your summer barbeques and pool parties.Hanging baskets can provide you with not only exceptional color on your porch or patio, but also create amazing curb appeal. We have an extensive selection of annuals for sun and shade on Long Island.

Hanging baskets also make a great alternative for those who do not have a garden to enjoy,. They don’t require much space or attendance, other than the occasional watering. They do need more water than in-ground plants because they hang and don’t retain as much of the water. But this means they also don’t need to be weeded, as pest plants have no way to get to them. This makes hanging baskets a great alternative for beginning gardeners looking to get started in growing plants. They can be hung indoors or outside, bringing a small piece of nature in to a more accessible space.

Fall Fun Every Weekend!

Fun Characters for little kids to play and dance with!  You should see them try to ride the trikes — It’s almost as funny as watching some of the Dads attempting to embark on them.

family

Such a nice family!  Don’t worry — Monsters are not free to roam the farm — during the day at least.  Who knows what happens at night.

So this is what I do when I get bored playing with the flowers…

Jack B Littles — for those of you who want something for your desk or just to write something cute on it and give it to a friend!  You can have lots of fun being creative with these guys.

Thanks to my faithful readers who let me know I made the cover!  I even made Dad get me a copy.   Cassidy is such a ham bone!   And thanks to Long Islander News for featuring us! Check out the whole issue here  Long Islander – Huntington Weekly.

In the meantime, this weather isn’t very cooperative.   Eeek!   Nevertheless, we will be open Rain or Shine and will operate all the rides as weather permits.

We will also be open with Festival rides on  all the school holidays including this Monday and Tuesday!

Remember that admission is FREE!  Rides at a nominal fee will include a hayride, animal train ride, pumpkin bouncy house, firetruck slide, duck race play area, and the haunted house. And best of all, no East End traffic!   As usual, our parking isn’t so great, but at least it’s free.

By the way, I’ve been looking around and we have the best mums around at the best prices! Have to put my my Mom on the cover of Mums Weekly!   Remember, Mom’s Mums Rule!

Get Ready for Fall! It’s going to be a great weekend!

Our Fall Festival will be going strong tomorrow with lots of homemade goodies like pies, candy apples, donuts, and cookies.  We even have the most amazing ice cream – pumpkin, apple, and cinnamon!   You will just have to roll me out of this October!

Our Mums and Cabbages/Kales are getting prettier and prettier! They are big and beautiful!  We also have winter survivor pansies — plant them now and you have them all the way to next July!  Fall is an awesome planting time.
