In Southwest Ohio, we have an unofficial rule for planting our flowers in-ground: wait until after Mother’s Day.
To avoid late hard frosts that damage roots and petals, many garden centers delay opening so our blooms stay safe. Mid-May is a perfect time to grab your wagon and kiddos for a trip to one of Cincinnati’s prize-winning garden centers.
With three locations in Clermont County, Grant’s Farm and Garden Centers have over 100,000 square feet of growing space. Annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, seeds and mulch are available at each location with prices varying. From hosting fundraisers to teaching workshops, Grant’s Farm comes with a passion for botanicals.
Size matters at Natorp’s! Pulling into the Mason nursery outlet always wows us from the size and selection of their nursery products. For kiddos who love to garden, Cincinnati’s largest plant nursery is a gem for shrubs, trees, annuals, perennials and vegetables. With one million plants to choose from, your garden from Natorp’s will be beaming!
With a talented team of landscape designers, White Oak Garden prides themselves on helping guide customers with all of their garden needs. Landscape services are available for bigger projects and yes- they plant at your home, too! Lawn care, house plants, shrubs, annuals and perennials fill the garden aisles in White Oak.
An unofficial start to summer includes Strawberry Days at Blooms and Berries in Loveland. The farm market opens its doors for U-Pick strawberries, market delicacies and fresh blooms. A large assortment of hanging baskets, succulents, tropical flowers, herbs and fertilizers inspire a colorful garden. Kiddos can get their hands dirty and pot their own flowers on site!
