Summer at Dayton's

Summer brings so many fun and different things to the nursery.

Summer brings a dramatic change from the busy spring months. We welcome June as National Perennial Gardening Month and we await the opening of the Owl Barn Market with seasonal, fresh (and local) produce including Seiberling Farm’s famous sweet corn.  July brings our annual Blueberry Festival and delicious, local peaches from Bauman Orchards.  Then, we await the end of August and the return of the famous Igloo Mum series. 

During these months the nursery is still fully stocked with trees, shrubs and perennials plus the added bonus of shopping at the Owl Barn Market.

June is Perennial Gardening Month!

According to the Perennial Plant Association (PPA), at this time of year, gardeners can find mature specimens of favorite summer bloomers at their local garden center.

They also award the PPA Perennial Plant of the Year winner (see gallery below) as well as other awards and student scholarships.
