WHAT'S HAPPENING AT SOUTHWOOD?
Join us at the garden center for some of our special events!
Join us to create a beautiful orchid arrangement. We think orchids are simply stunning and love to see them all over our home! In this workshop we will talk about how to care for your orchid to help it live a long and beautiful life. This workshop will include step-by-step instructions as well as all materials needed. This workshop will be taught by our favorite plant aficionado Alex. Registration is required.
Join us Saturday, March 24, from 9 am to 3 pm for our 13th annual Plant a Row for the Hungry event, benefitting the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. For every non-perishable food item you donate (think canned goods, peanut butter, dried beans, etc.) we’ll give you a free Southwood Grown tomato plant (limit ten per person).
In this workshop you will create your very own piece of living art made of succulents and driftwood. We have a great selection of the cutest and most unique succulents for you to choose from. You will also get to pick the special piece of driftwood that speaks to you. This workshop is taught by our favorite plant aficionado Alex. Come prepared to have fun! Registration is required.
From deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs to annuals, perennials...and yes, even tropicals, Paul James will showcase the plants he’s most excited about -- some old, some new, but all cool -- and explain why you’ll probably want to find a spot for them somewhere in your landscape.
Class is free, but registration is required.

Funny thing about people’s plant buying habits – they tend to buy things when they’re in full bloom. That’s perfectly understandable. But if you want to enjoy the blooms over a longer period of time, you really should consider planting much earlier. And for some of the most colorful harbingers of spring, that means now.
When you hear the word bulb, you more than likely think of those that bloom in late winter to early spring – daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths, for example. But there’s another group of bulbs that you actually plant in spring for a summer show, and they’re among the most beautiful bulbs of all.
Two significant events occur this month: daylight saving time begins on the 11th; and spring begins on the 20th. That means there’ll be more daylight in the evenings and the days will be getting longer, so we’ll all have more time to garden. Yippee! But what, exactly, should we be planting this month?
Last Sunday I spent six hours in the garden, planting 60 hills of potatoes, 80 leeks, and 120 onions, among other things. Monday morning I had a tough time getting out of bed. But I must say the discomfort I felt was strangely gratifying, because not only did I get a lot of gardening done, I also burned a lot of calories. Just how many calories, you ask?
