During this current crisis, we think a “Daily Dose of Natural Beauty” is much needed, and this new feature is brought to you by Zenith Holland Nursery, thanking you and the South King County community for your continuing support:
Now in bloom: Pansies!
According to the Old Farmers Almanac:
“Pansies are the colorful flowers with “faces.” A cool-weather favorite, pansies are great for both spring and fall gardens!”
We say these cheerful faces can certainly brighten our mood and prompt a smile. If you venture out for a little exercise today, why not play a little “I SPY” and see whether it works for you?
Pansies are pretty easy to grow, though for best results they should have 6-10 hours of sunlight each day. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can enjoy their cheery faces, by growing them in pots alone or with other plants. A good quality potting soil and plenty of drainage will keep them happy through spring.
As a designated “Essential business” member of the Food and Agriculture sector, Zenith Holland Nursery is operating daily, andoffering a broad selection of edibles including fruits and cool season vegetable starts that can be planted now. Owner/Operator Lyn Robinson and her husband are on site daily to – at a safe distance – assist customers with their horticultural needs, while other staff remain safely at home.
If you are one of the many folks who would like to seize your stay-at-home time to plant a Victory garden, Zenith Holland can help. They are a local resource for seeds, soil and fertilizer. While practicing social distancing measures on site, they can also answer questions or orders by phone.
