Treat Mom to Something Special from Rohsler’s
What’s in the Garden:
Mother’s Day is almost here – and so many of your mother’s favorite plants and gifts are here at Rohsler’s. Ever wonder how Mother’s Day started? Read about it here. This Sunday (May 8), surprise Mom with fresh flowers from our floral shop. Our creative floral designers have the knack for creating timeless, elegant arrangements and bouquets that will help you tell Mom just how special she is. Local and worldwide delivery can be arranged. Call (201) 327-7005 for more information or to place an order. Check this week’s Rohsler’s Picks for details and special Mother’s Day offers.
Pre-Planted Container Gardens
If your mom loves flowers but isn’t wild about getting her hands dirty, or has limited time to garden, she will love one of our pre-planted container gardens.
Treat her to a hanging basket that is overflowing with her favorite plant – or combination of plants – for the shade or sun. Each basket is a portable splash of color that will continue to delight Mom throughout the summer. All she has to do is decide where to hang it!
We also have combination planters filled with a variety of plants that add instant color and curb appeal. We’ll help you choose one that has plants that will thrive at Mom’s house.
Our plantsmen have been hard at work in our greenhouses growing the healthy, vigorous plants that are now being featured in our baskets and containers. Our dedicated staff members are potting annuals and perennials every day to ensure you’ll find a wide selection of the healthiest plants available.
For the Love of Hydrangeas
Present a gift with old-fashioned charm: Bring Mom a Hydrangea. These plants bring huge clusters of blue, pink, or white color to the garden. We have many new arrivals this week to choose from just in time for Mother’s Day. We have a limited number of 1 gallon Proven Winner Hydrangeas on sale this week in bud and bloom. Visit Rohsler’s Picks for more details.
If your mother is a chef extraordinaire, treat her to a collection of her favorite vegetables and culinary and medicinal herbs from our extensive selection. You’ll want to peruse our edibles carefully. Have you ever seen orange cauliflower? We have it! We also have a purple variety – among a host of other unique culinary plants.
How about a purple tomato? Cherokee Purple is just one of many heirloom tomatoes with unparalleled taste. We also have Rohsler’s Grown Grafted Tomatoes that are more vigorous and are yielding bigger, better, and longer harvests. Grafted Tomatoes are one of this week’s Picks as well.
Our herb selection includes many types of thyme and oregano, and quirky mint varieties that include peppermint, spearmint (Mojito and Mint Julep), apple mint, orange mint, and chocolate mint.
Note: Take Mom to Rohsler’s on May 15, when Anita DaFonte will present her organic gardening tips. See our Events page for all the details.
So many moms love Roses – and for good reason. Roses embody classic beauty and style, and feature a multitude of colors and perfumes.
Our selection is one of the very best in northern New Jersey. You’ll love our David Austin collection of English Roses as well as classic Hybrid Tea Roses, Floribunda Roses, Mini Roses, Tree-Roses, Shrub-Roses, and more!
If you have concerns after trying to grow some finicky Rose varieties from years gone by, try a Rose from our Knockout or Oh-So-Easy collections. You may even want to try our Easy Elegance or Drift Roses this year. These roses offer effortless beauty with minimal upkeep.
Your patio, porch, or deck (or Mom’s) can become a slice of the tropics when you add one of our Hibiscus, Mandevilla, Gardenia, Bougainvillea, Banana, or Lantana plants. Bring the tropics indoors with vibrant flowering Phalaenopsis Orchids, which are easy to care for.
Did you know that many flowering tropical plants can be grown as trees/standards? Hibiscus, Lantana, Gardenia, Bougainvillea are just a few. These beauties can adorn your deck or patio all summer and then be brought inside for the winter.
Gifts for the Gardener
Make Mom’s next trip into the garden especially enjoyable. Present her with a birdbath, fountain, statue, wind chime, gazing ball, or sundial that will add the finishing touch to her private oasis. Remember to add a pair of high-quality gardening gloves, new garden tools, and a watering can, too.
If you can’t decide exactly what to bring Mom this year, we offer gift cards so she can shop for exactly what “Her Heart Desires” at her convenience.
Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Rohsler’s!
