Echter’s in Arvada

I, Zeb the Duck, say it is time to think about planting flowers, trees, vegetables and bushes.  Mom and I went to Echter’s in Arvada, Colorado.

Welcome to Echter's

Welcome to Echter’s

We have many nursery choices in the Denver area, but we were near Echter’s and they have everything!

Before we even got to the flowers, we saw so many watering cans.

More than I ever saw in my entire Duck life

I love these garden boots.

So colorful!

They have all the gardening tools and equipment I could think of.  Yard and patio furniture and accessories are plentiful.  In the statuary department this fountain is perfect.

Orchids??  I thought they were in Hawaii and other tropical places.

Not just for tropical areas now.

Not just for tropical areas now.

Now, in Colorado, also.  This is just fun.

I like this.

Eyes and carrot nose like a snowman.  Even a hat and decorated with orange like a pumpkin.  I really like this plant arrangement!

Here are brightly colored geraniums and hanging baskets with petunias.

Beautiful bright colors

This Royal Red Norway Maple is beautiful.  There is a place for water plants, but they were not in the water yet.

In Denver we should not plant before Mother’s Day.  This is my driveway May 12, 2014,

Don't plant too early

the morning after Mother’s Day.  We measured 6.5 inches of snow on a table in the back.  Temperatures were below freezing also but the snow was gone Tuesday afternoon.   We will plant soon.

Back inside I love the roses.

Roses smell so good

They are pretty and smell good.  Echter’s has flowers, houseplants, bushes, trees, vegetables and more.  Again, Echtert’s has everything.   These tomato plants are pretty big already.

We will be back for tomatoes

Mom didn’t buy any plants today, but she will soon.  Before tomato plants, we need to rototill the garden.

Echter’s has colors everywhere and everything you could want or need.

Echter's has so much!

They even have grass seed and a plant doctor.    Echter’s celebrates 55 years as a local, family-owned nursery.  I love this place!  Visit www.echters.com for information, a virtual tour and other great pictures.
