A Winter Pick-Me-Up
January 25, 2011

As an alternative to dodging the snow and cold come into our warm greenhouses that are filled with colorful flowering plants and striking indoor foliage. It’s just what you need to chase away the winter blues or as a cure to cabin fever.

Give your home or office a winter pick-me-up with a colorful primrose. The primrose is a vibrant spring flower that is native to Great Britain. It is also a hardy perennial that can be planted outside in the early spring. Primrose likes to be on the cooler side and does well in moist soil. The bright flowers look amazing in spring colored pots or as part of a colorful container garden. A little bit of color always makes a thoughtful gift.

If you want to dream of the warmth of a summer day why not get a cactus garden? These low maintenance plants always remind one of the sizzling desert. Waterloo has a variety of gardens and individual plants available to transform your desk or coffee table into a little piece of the Southwest.
