We are bustin at the seams!

We have tons of beautiful plants in stock! Way too many to list. Calladiums, Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, Plumbago, Daisy Shrubs, Loropetalum, Passion Flower Vine... the list goes on. If you are wondering what those hot pink flowering shrubs are that are blooming all over town, they are Loropetalum, or Fringe Flower. They are a great evergreen shrub for sun. You may also be seeing a yellow flowering vine in the woods; this is a Carolina Jessamine. The trees with white flowers are flowering pears. Come on in and let us help you brighten up your garden!

Let's get to it!

Hello to everyone! If you're like me, you're ready for some warm weather. Well, I think we're finally going to get some. It's been a long, cold winter and I think we could all use some quality time outside. Here at the Wilmington Island Hester & Zipperer we're gearing up for Spring. The plants are really starting to roll in. We are stocked up on fruit trees for those of you who want to grow your own. We also have tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, seed potatoes, and onions. Squash and zucchini plants will be here soon. If you haven't prepared your vegetable beds for spring now is the time. Work in some compost, hydrated lime, and triple superphosphate before you plant. We will have a free veggie gardening workshop here on Sunday, March 21st at 2:00pm so mark your calendar.
