The Cottage Gardeners
Posted April 22, 2017
Here is the crew at our annual holiday party. We'll be adding gardeners throughout the season, so if you or someone you know has a passion for gardening, let us know! We always need part time seasonal help throughout the year based on our clients needs. The work is hard, but very therapeutic at the same time. We like to have fun in the gardens doing what we love to do!

Join us for our first Cottage Gardeners Market Day of the year, Saturday, April 8 from 10am-2pm! Market Days are weather dependent so please check our website for updates! Every second Saturday, April through October, we open our nursery to retail sales. Customers can purchase our beautiful, quality plants, as well as custom seasonal containers. Each month we will feature a plant of the month that showcases Cottage Gardeners’ signature style: plants that will make your garden ‘show’ in each season. In April, our feature plant is Heuchera (HEW- ker-ah), also known as Coral Bells and Coral flower. Heuchera make excellent foliage plants for sun to part shade gardens. Most flowers are not as impressive as the foliage, but their dainty ‘bells’ add interest and texture in planters, especially. We like to use their unique foliage to contrast with bright Spring annuals and perennials in our late winter/early spring pots. If you have a shady location, Heuchera will grow for months well into fall. They are North American natives that thrive in all conditions and do well here in the Treasure Valley. New varieties are introduced each season. We will also offer our favorite garden tools for sale—products we are particularly fond of that are time- proven in the garden. In addition, we will have specialty items available for outdoor décor, miniature gardens, and centerpieces for your Spring tables! We hope you’ll stop by and see us. We think you’ll be delighted with Cottage Gardeners’ retail side, as well as our customer service. While you are here, you can enjoy refreshments, take a stroll through our display garden and find the plants you would love to cultivate in your own garden. Our knowledgeable gardeners will be on hand to answer questions. Market Days are held at our office/nursery, located at 600 N. Latah Street in Boise. Our yellow cottage is just off Americana & Emerald (across from Morris Hill Cemetary. Check back to see additional plants and specials we will feature. Bring a friend—we look forward to seeing you!

Looking for a gift for a friend, a little potted plant or centerpiece for Easter? Give us a call or send an email and we can plant something up. We also plan to have seasonal potted plants on hand, small and large, some with annuals, some with perennials, and some with herbs. Please call if you're interested, or stop by. During the busy gardening season we are not always in the office, so best to set up an appointment. Looking forward to seeing you!
