Our Garden Center
Perennial BOGO SALE
Perennials are always a hit because of their ability to return year after year. Gardeners become anxious each spring as new growth begins to break ground. There are perennials for borders, backgrounds, sun and shade, and Mischler's is about to make it a little easier for you to get planting!

Russian Sage makes a beautiful backdrop to a perennial garden and Buddleia is perfect for attracting butterflies to your garden. Brightly colored Echinacia will add punch to any landscape

Beginning Wednesday, August 1, you can purchase one of our perennial plants at their regular price and get a second, of equal or lesser value, FREE!

There is still plenty of time for your new perennials to settle in and take hold before the cold weather creeps in. Whether you're filling in an empty space or creating a new bed, this is the perfect opportunity to purchase quality perennials at a substantial savings.

Hurry in for the best selection!

2 Awards at Cornell Field Days
 
Our talented
employees
did it again!

Each year, Cornell University holds it's field days at Cornell's Bluegrass Lane Horticultural Research Facility in Ithaca, NY. . Greenhouse growers from across the state assemble to partake in a day of informative seminars. One of the highlights of the days activities is the container competition.

Competitors may submit container creations in several catagories. This year, Mischler's was honored with 2 second place awards. The first was a creative "Perennial Memory Basket" in the open division. The large wicker basket is filled with containers of potted perennials of various sizes and trimmed with a bow. After a memorium, plants can be given to one individual or distributed to several family members for a lasting memory in the recipienet's garden.

Our second award in the 12" hanging basket category, went to a monster of a hanging basket entiltled "Hang Out, Dine In". This large 12" pot held a very healthy Tumbler Tom tomato plant accompanied by Red Robin basil, Sweet Italian basil, chives, dill and parsley.

Congratulations team!

In the Greenhouse
Christmas in August?

Well... not exactly Christmas but it's time for us to begin growing a plant closely associated with the holiday season.

Customers frequently ask what we do during the winter months. Like most retailers, we are one or two seasons ahead. While most folks are enjoying the fruits of their summer labors, we're busy planting for the upcoming seasons.

Hundreds of pots of mums are growing out of doors where flats of petunias, phlox and calibrachoa once sat. More will be added, replacing the field of perennials.

The remaining geraniums have been moved to tables in the sales area outside making way for the broad selection of poinsettias.

Indigenous to Mexico and Central America, the Poinsettia was introduced into the United States in 1828. Poinsettias are popular Christmas decorations in homes, churches, offices, and elsewhere across North America.

In order to have them ready for the holidays, they need to be started  in August to insure large plants with a bounty of brightly colored bracts.

Watch our newsletter for the monthly progress of these traditional favorites.
