|Greenhouse at Cascade Nursery|
I tried to focus on vegetables while mom found more dark purple petunias. One of the benefits of shopping at a nursery is that the staff have plant knowledge. I asked about the variety of corn that's best for a newbie and was told by an employee to look for shorter duration of growing season, which would result in shorter corn stalks. She also mentioned to plant in groups not a single row in order to pollinate.
|Veggies at Cascade Greenhouse|
I found the Hubbard Squash that my friend had recommended and now realize that I didn't get the pumpkin plant I had found. I also got a pony pack of red lettuce and spinach for the planters on the upper deck.
|Coleus at Cascade Greenhouse|
We had seen some beautiful hanging baskets with dark coleus plants and found a huge selection of them in the last greenhouse. So many it was hard to choose, the clerk pointed out two that were trailing, in the back they had a sign about stinky coleus that kept critters away.
