Summertime and the living is HOT HOT HOT! But at Dietert Greenhouses it is NOT NOT NOT!
Here in Texas the heat is up and the aquifer is down, but you can still have a beautiful garden. we can teach you "container gardening," which is a unique way of gardening that keeps your plants hearty and beautiful in spite of hot weather. In creating your container garden you will want healthy, vibrant plants and all of our plants are fresh and bug-free from our greenhouses. This allows us to price our product like those from the "chain stores" except you get product fresh off the greenhouse bench.
Our summer crops include a wide variety of potted foliage product in just about any size that you might require. We also grow various blooming potted plants including impatiens, New Guineas impatiens, vincas, Reiger begonias, purslane, portulaca and hibiscus to name just a few.
