Sowing Seeds and Taking Cuttings!!!

January20

The time has come again to join us in prepping for spring. Come brighten your spirits, get your hands in some dirt, and grow some baby plants! This spring, thus far, the only class we are offering is  Sowing Seeds and Taking Cuttings. We know many of you are repeat students (which we love BTW), and if you’ve never had the opportunity to join us for this class then join this spring.  It’s a wonderful class about learning the basics of seed and cutting propagation. You spend two hours with us during the initial class, then you leave your plants and come back and visit them over the next month or so and watch them grow. Yep, we take care of your seeds and cuttings and when you come to check on them you are welcome to spend some time transplanting them into pots. We will watch them till the clock strikes April 15th, then they turn into pumpkins. lol.

It’s truly a unique experience. Take the time to join us for a class, and go home with buckets of plant knowledge and plants!
You must register in advance. Class fee is $35

If you’re curious about another class, or setting up a propagation class for a group, don’t hesitate to call Peggy. 502.296.1499

‘Cupcake Succulents got ‘pinned”

We recently noticed Katie Couric pinned our succulent cupcake photo on her Pintrest gardening wall. So cool!!! Thanks Katie! Although it’s no new idea, we love that she noticed our photo and thought it worthy enough to share. Succulents seem to really be in vogue at the moment, and our selection of plants for sale covers a breadth of colors and shapes. Join us the weekend of Oct 12th and 13th for a free lecture on how to grow these beauties (specifically indoors thru winter months). Our succulents will be on sale that weekend; normally $5.95, on sale $4.95.000_succulent_cupcakes_small

time to make some… Thyme-Lemon Cookies

April7

As requested by a customer, we posted this cookie recipe and hope that many of you make and enjoy eating these as much as we do. This is one of our favorite recipes and Julie always does a bang up job making them. Thanks Julie for passing this recipe along. btw- I believe Julie uses Lemon Thyme for the cookies, to make them lemonier of course. The recipe appeared in SUNSET magazine and is credited to Janet Moore, Beulah, CO.

THYME-LEMON COOKIES

1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons dry thyme leaves
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel.

Combine butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar; beat until thoroughly blended. Beat in eggs until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, thyme, and lemon peel; mix well. Put remaining 1/4 cup sugar into a small bowl. Shape into 1 Tbsp-size balls (chill for an hour for easier handling); drop balls into sugar & roll to coat. Place balls 1 inch apart on ungreased 12×15″ sheet. Bake at 375° 12 to 15 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Thieneman’s Greenhaus is a family owned and operated garden center, located in beautiful Coxs Creek, KY. Two years ago we took a leap of faith and decided to relocate our garden center after the family farm sold. We found a picturesque 10 acre farm just south of Mt Washington and we started settling in. After not quite 2 years now, we still feel like we’re moving in. But we thankfully didn’t have to skip a season. We had a great first year, and it looks like we’ll have a great second year. We are extremely thankful our loyal customers followed us, and a bunch of new people have found us too.
We have been specializing in herbs and perennials for almost 60 years. Our herb collection is probably the largest in the area. For 15 years now we have grown a large variety of heirloom tomatoes, peppers and veggies. And we have a great love for succulents as well, our collection is ever growing.Our goal is to be your favorite local garden center known for unusual and hard to find plants. We love our plants!!
