A new retail house

I thought you might like watching the progress of my latest project. It is a shade house. The shade house is going to be a retail sales area for spring bedding plants, vegetable plants, combination pots, outdoor ceramic containers, potting soils, perennials, and nursery stock.

Nursery stock is a new product line. In the fall, we will do mum plants, pumpkins, corn stalks husked corn, straw bales, etc. 

Here are the first two pictures.

Easter lilies and hydrangeas...

The Easter Lilies are growing well.  Today we are applying a growth regulator to keep the lilies around 18 inches tall.  If we don't apply the growth regulator, we would have up to 30 inch tall lilies.

The hydrangeas are beginning to leaf out.
