Greenhouse

From early spring to late fall the greenhouse has a great selection of perennials and annuals that are sure to add color to your landscape. Perennials return year after year and are a mainstay for every garden; Annuals are a one-season-wonder. The Garden Center stocks a wide variety of healthy perennials that are hardy enough for the challenging high alpine climate of Teton Valley. From shade loving to drought resistant xeriscape plants, the MD Garden Center is a one-stop-shop for gardeners.

Starting with frost-hardy annuals in the spring, then moving to amazing hanging baskets and vegetables in late spring, and finally to brilliant flowers through the summer, our Garden Center is sure to please gardeners at every level.

Three Sisters Garden

Early Native Americans traditionally planted corn, squash and beans together. These crops grew so well together that they became known as the Three Sisters. Here is a classic example of companion gardening where each plant helps another. The corn stalks provide a trellis for the beans to climb, the beans provide nitrogen for the corn and squash. The squash in turn provides protection for the beans and corn by shading the soil and discouraging pests with their spiny stems. Growing a Three Sisters garden would be an excellent lesson for kids about co-dependence and growing food.
This garden theme is fun with kids because the plants grow fast and they grow big. The seeds themselves are relatively large and easier for little hands to handle and plant. These veggies all like to grow in warm soil, so wait until the first or second week of June to start. This garden needs its own spot with good soil and full sun. To begin, build up a gently sloping mound of soil. Incorporate a granular vegetable fertilizer into the soil. Plant the corn seeds in the center. Wait a couple of weeks until the corn has grown up about 6 inches then surround the corn with bean seeds. Plant the squash seeds surrounding the corn and beans, on the sloping edge of the mound.
– Corn: Choose any short season variety or buy starts from a garden center.
– Beans: Pole beans are traditionally grown in this garden, but bush beans would be fine too. Sow seed directly into the prepared area.
– Squash: Zucchini and yellow summer squash are the easiest bets for our region. Sow from seed or buy starts from a garden center.

Hummingbird Habitat Garden

Delight your senses each summer with a backyard hummingbird haven. After their long migration from Central America and Mexico, these little guys are ready to hang out and eat. Hummingbirds are famous for visiting feeders, but providing additional food sources will enhance their habitat. With their long beaks, hummingbirds sip nectar from flowers. Although they are attracted to red flowers, it’s the sugar content in the nectar that keep hummingbirds returning for more. Here are some of their favorite flowers:
• Bee balm
• Salvia
• Honeysuckle
• Penstemon
• Jupiter’s beard
• Dianthus
• Nicotiana
• Callibrachoa
• Nepeta
• Verbena
Most of these can be found at your local garden center either already growing as ‘starts’ or in seed form.
Hummingbirds need safe perches to rest upon, such as trees and shrubs. A nearby water source like a bird bath or fountain is also important. In addition to sipping nectar, hummingbirds are insectivores, feeding on tiny insects such as aphids, thrips and spiders. Creating a hummingbird habitat will benefit your garden and these birds.

Last-Chance Late Fall Tasks

It’s not too late to sneak in a couple of late fall tasks. Take advantage of any nicer November days to cross a few jobs off this list and prepare your landscape for winter and spring.
• Plant bulbs: As long as the ground is still workable, fall bulbs can still be planted. All fall bulbs are now 50% off.
• Spread wildflower and grass seed: Late fall is ideal for seeding. Seeds lay dormant and germinate next spring as the soil temperatures rise.
• Mow, fertilize and protect your lawn: A shorter final cut will reduce the amount of raking next spring. Spread fall fertilizer (such as Scott’s™) and a granular rodent repellant like Molemax™ if voles are a problem in your area.
• Hang and fill bird feeders: We carry a variety of birdfeeders and seed to attract a range of wild birds. Feeders placed near trees and shrubs will encourage more visiting birds since they like the protection of nearby branches.
– Cover tree trunks with tree guards to protect from voles and other gnawing critters. This is especially important for fruit trees.
