Sulfur Buckwheat

The ever-beautiful Sulfur Buckwheats are just coming into bloom and will be wide open by the summer solstice. As early summer flowers get going, the garden is buzzing with insects. Butterflies and hummingbirds are looking for food and the first Monarch of the season showed up just a couple days ago.
But as the heat of summer approaches, gardeners understandably take a break –and so do I! So, this week will be our last week of regular hours until September. The nursery will be open by appointment through the summer. But keep in mind . . . September and early October are arguably the best time of year to plant perennials and Draggin’ Wing will have more plants than ever!
