Wow! This May has flown by. It's hard to believe that Memorial Day is almost here. What are your plans for the weekend? I'm looking forward to having some family time as well as an opportunity to get into my own garden some more. Playing in the dirt is always therapeutic for me.
This week, I had the opportunity to select the plants for the display gardens out by the road at the store. We went with a color theme this year with blocks of orange, blue, pink and yellow. It will likely take a bit of time before they look beautiful from the road, but I'm looking forward to seeing the mass of color. Hope you enjoy it too!
Next week Thursday's class is a combination class & workshop on Fairy Gardens. Sherri from Gull Lake Landscape Company will be showing us how to create our own miniature gardens. The class is free; making your own garden will cost $45 plus the cost of the container. Please register on our website www.wenkegreenhouses.com.
Yes, we're open this weekend. I'll be there too on Saturday. I didn't mention it above but it's one of the things I'm looking forward to this weekend because I truly do enjoy helping people select the right plants to fit their needs. We're open 8-8 on Saturday and 10-4 on both Sunday and Monday (Memoridal Day).

Where the Earth Laughs in Flowers
Hibiscus - A Stunning Late Summer Perennial
Hibiscus blooms are the size of dinner plates and beautiful. I remember when I was younger and first starting to work at Ball Seed Company in Chicago. They have a huge trial garden that included a display of hibiscus. It was so beautiful I remember them 20 plus years later! Luna Hibiscus are the featured perennial and are 25% off this week.
Recycling is Good for Everyone!
Did you know you can bring back all your plastic pots and carry trays to Wenke Greenhouses and we recycle them? We always have a cart or a bin in the corner of the parking lot available for you to put your plastic anytime. Our motto is “The Earth Laughs in Flowers” so recycling is a service we’re happy to offer. We reuse some of the items and anything we can't reuse, we recycle through East Jordan in South Haven, MI because they specialize in horticulture recycling. It's a win-win for everyone! Learn more about the process in the read more section.
What a great idea! Kwik Combos are a new idea that really makes sense because they make it easy to create beautiful combination planters or hanging baskets. Kwik combos have three different plants in the same 7" container. We grew them together from a small liner and now they're ready for you to plant into a larger container. It's an instant combination of plants that were selected because they grow well together and look great too! Now on sale Buy 2 Get 1 Free. (Reg. $6.99 each)
