    A timeless classic!  Ontario grown Boston Fern Hanging Baskets are super for shady spots or areas with only a few hours of dappled sun.  Lovely on a porch - and easy care!  Water daily (in the heat of the summer) for best care. Can be taken in for the winter and grown in a bright window BUT be aware, they are messy (leaf drop) during this time in our dry homes.

    A popular plant for deck or patio throughout the Summer!  Originating in Florida, Hibiscus love hot weather, so early in Spring it will need to be shuffled in and out of the house/shelter on cold days and/or nights. Once warm weather is fully upon us, grow in a container in a sunny spot, watering daily if needed.  Containers should have drain holes so roots don't get soggy.  Weekly fertilization (an all purpose like 20-20-20 or Miracle Grow) is a must for a multitude of blooms.  These new breed hibiscus have blooms that last longer than one day; the blooms are large and rich with colour

    Kim Queen Sword Fern

    $14.99$29.99
    A fan favourite!  This is THE tropical fern seen everywhere as an urn insert, in the middle of a planter or in a pot on the deck in shade, partial sun AND SUN!  Upright in nature, it is best in a planter, not hanging basket (Boston Fern is better as a shady hanging basket)

    Macho fern comes by its name honestly. This brawny fern sports bright green fronds with bold, broad leaves and makes its relatives, Boston fern and Kimberly Queen fern, look little by comparison. Macho fern is ideal for large urns or outdoor planters where it has room to flex its graceful 3- to 4-foot-long fronds. Best in partial sun to shade.  It can NOT tolerate sun the way Kim Queen Ferns do.

    Mandevillia is a vining tropical plant that blooms beautifully all summer.  For optimum bloom fertilize weekly and do not allow plants to sit in water with soggy roots.  Mandevillia preform well in hot, sunny locations. When finished, blooms dry up and blow off and new blooms develop, so this plant is always in bloom. Mandevillia can be brought into the house for the winter but will bloom only slightly and will need to be cut back so not messy in your home.

    Rio Dipladenia are one of the most popular tropical plants available.  Plants are hardy and perform well in partial sun to full sun and tolerate inconsistent watering or dryness - perfect for cottagers!  Leaves are shiny and blooms are abundant.  Old blooms will dry and fall off or, to keep tidy, a light once-a-week deadheading can be done. Diplandenia are filler plants, not vining like their cousin, Mandevillia.  Each plant will spread to 12-14"  (width and height) and should be given room in a planter to grow.
