You don't have to dig for holiday gifts for Pikes Peak region gardener - Colorado Springs Gazette
Claire Smagala, accountant. "They make nice gifts, so we like to have them ready to go."The store soon will get 4- and 6-inch poinsettias and Norfolk pines, festive additions to holiday baskets."We have nice baskets to put those in with some trim, and we dress it to the nines. We sell a lot of these," Smagala said. "And this year, we ran the gamut on the colors of poinsettia. They have great names, like Jingle Bells, Green Envy, Marble Star, Picasso - a hot pink, Monet ice punch - another variety of pink, tapestry, red glitter and red-and-white. It's a nice variety of colors - not the inexpensive reds you'll find at (big box stores). We have unique colors and nice gardens. There we can compete with bigger retailers."Any basket can be custom-made. "Skyway can also do a more exquisite garden with orchids. These can get into the $100 to $200 range. Our designers find plants that look fabulous together," Smagala said.Gardening gift basketsAnother thoughtful gift for a gardener is a tote, bucket or basket filled with hand tools, decorations and brightly colored garden implements."We put together gifts that may include a colorful watering can, gardening gloves and hand tools. We also carry watering wands and sprinklers in bright colors. They remind people that you need to water in the winter, too," said Susan Spencer, co-owner at Spencer's Produce, Lawn & Garden, 1430 S.

Germantown irises blooming for the last time in current location
But this is the last year the plants will adorn the West Tennessee Iris Society Garden adjacent to the Norfolk-Southern Railway line tracks west of West Street. After more than three decades, members can no longer tend to the garden established in 1987 that reached full bloom the next year.
"For me, and I think most of the members, it's a huge personal loss," said Caroline Winters, the society president. "It breaks our heart, but as few of us are physically able to do it, we had to be realistic about (the garden's future)."
The members, who took care of plants at the Memphis Botanic Garden, have maintained the small suburban garden. Winters said that many years ago her husband, Chuck, Steve Stern and Van Smith were the "triumvirate" caretakers of the garden. Chuck Winters and Stern have died. Those three did most of the heavy work.
Each year, members gather a third of the plants from the small garden and hold an annual iris sale. On August 25, every flower will be available to buy, but according to Winters, future irises sold will come from members' yards.
Winters said irises not sold in August could become part of Oaklawn Garden on Poplar Pike, but responsibility for maintaining them would fall to other city organizations.
