The nursery is on the grounds of a brick Colonial Revival house, around a hairpin turn and up a hill from downtown Culpeper.
I love the little carriage house/garage/storage building.
It's still early in the season, so most of the greenhouses were filled with annuals and vegetables freshly potted out of plug trays ... too small for sale just yet.
I don't have time to plant or care for annuals, but I want some hanging baskets for my front porch. How about pansies?
The porch on our old house needs something traditional, so I decided to get two ferns ...
and two baskets of mixed foliage plants ...
I'll repot the mixed baskets into larger containers, and add a yellow calabracoa and a hot pink zonal geranium ... for some splashes of color.
(the geraniums I chose aren't blooming yet.)
I paid for my plants and Promix, loaded the Expedition, and headed for home.
Isn't this lovely?
With all of my new supplies, you can be sure that I will be doing a LOT of potting in the next few days. I am really excited to have my hands in dirt again!
