April – June
Spring is the favorite season of many gardeners. April brings the emergence of blooms on countless trees, shrubs, and perennials at Squak Mt. We also feature seasonal color plants that can withstand a late frost that often arrives in late April.
May is show time for the greenhouses here at Squak Mt. This is when our homegrown summer annuals literally fly off the tables, as gardeners delight in their beauty, health and quality. May is also when we put out our home grown tomato plants, much to the delight of our customers who look forward every year to coming and selecting from our crop.
The crowning glory of May is of course, Mother’s Day! For years Squak Mtn. has been a destination for husbands and kids to come buy something for Mom on her special day. Fuchsia baskets have always been a classic gift and gift certificates are popular as well. But we also have beautiful moss hanging or wall baskets, geranium or petunia baskets, indoor and outdoor pottery, and a huge selection of blooming perennials and shrubs. And don’t forget our Garden Shed, filled with garden art, gifts and décor. Consider making Squak Mt. your destination for buying Mom a gift each year.
June finds the weather warming sufficiently to start planting heat loving plants such as basil, zinnias, pentas and lisianthus outdoors. It is also when we thank our customers with our annual Summer Color Dollar redemption period.
