Here at Heinz Brothers, we are always striving to provide our customers with the best information available. Here are some great spots to find interesting, inspiring, useful information to help you and your garden grow.
Our Favorite App
Dr. Allan Armitage’s app, “Armitage’s Greatest Perennials & Annuals”, is a tool we strongly recommend for all our customers, because it provides easy-to-read information on many of the plants available in our store.
The app is written with the home gardener in mind. Dr. Armitage suggests the best variety for hundreds of plants, and backs up his recommendations with years of personal experience, entertaining videos, and stunning photos.
A deer and rabbit rating is provided for almost every species as well, a tool in and of itself is of immense value in our Fox Valley gardens.
Armitage’s Greatest Perennials & Annuals is essentially a small reference book in your back pocket. It’s updated regularly, and best of all, costs only $4.99. A spectacular value!
