Milmont Greenhouse in Stuarts Draft … what’s on sale?

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Milmont 9Milmont was having a sale — half off the four-pack annuals — so it was a good time to drive to Stuarts Draft for flower to fill in where necessary in the pots and flower boxes that were planted in May. This is an annual trek for me and involves adding new colors as well as filler now that the original flowers have done a bit of growing.

If concerned they won’t look the same once they go home with you, they will share their secrets for feeding, dead-heading, and whatever else is necessary to keep them beautiful through the blooming season.
