Greenhouse

For the majority of the year, you can wander into our greenhouse and be completely overwhelmed (in a very good way) by the fragrance and color you’re presented with.

After all, our greenhouse is Kentuckiana’s one stop shop for all things annual, vegetable, herb, and any other non-hardy type of plant for a southern Indiana environment. During the winter months we may cut back a little bit, but we’ll still be there to make sure the inside of your house is well taken care of with our wide selection of house plants and cacti.

Annuals

A true annual is a plant that completes its life cycle in one year. This means that it goes from seed to seed and then dies off during the course of one growing season. The whole mission of an annual is to produce seed and propagate. That’s why deadheading or removing spent flowers before the seed matures produces more flowers and therefore more potential seed.

 

Some tender perennials are grown as annuals in colder climates. For a perennial to be worth growing as an annual, it must flower profusely in its first year of growth. Pansies, lantana and alyssum are all great examples of this.

 

There are also plants considered to be hardy annuals. This just means that they are able to withstand a little frost without being killed off and will continue to bloom and set seed into the next year, but they will eventually expire.

 

Annuals can be further divided into cool season and warm season. For example, pansies will fade as the summer heats up, but Zinnias won’t even get moving until the nights stay warm.

 

Annual flowers give you the exciting opportunity to have a totally different garden every year!

Vegetables + Herbs

Growing vegetables is one of the most rewarding adventures a gardener encounters because not only do they get the satisfaction of watching the plant grow, they get to reap the benefits of all of the fruit that comes off that plant. Not to mention they save all of that money at the grocery store!

 

Let us be your one stop shop for all of your vegetable and herb gardening needs, whether you’re planting from seed (link) or are looking for seedlings, from Asparagus to Zucchini, we’ve got you covered!

Houseplants

One of the ways that we out perform our competitors is by providing our customers with gardening assistance not just during the outdoor growing season, but year round. In addition to answering all of your off season questions, we’re also ready and willing to help you bring the outdoors indoors. We do this by offering a wide selection of Florida grown foliage plants to not only accent your home, but keep the air fresh and clean 365 days a year.

 

To give you an idea of some of the indoor plants we have to offer, we carry up to six foot tall Ficus, several varieties of Dracaena, Schefflera, and many other Palms. We also carry a wide variety of flowering plants for inside including several types of Begonias, Spathiphyllum, Kalanchoe, and Orchids.

 

Be sure to ask our staff which plants will grow best in your light conditions to ensure that you end up with the right plant for your home!

Tropicals

For those of us who winter in somewhere sunny and warm, such as Florida, we tend to get a little envious of the naturally growing plant life down there because it’s all so exotic. This is why every spring, Grant Line receives their annual shipment of tropical plants. We want to make you feel like you’ve brought a bit of the tropics back home!

 

The extent of our inventory includes hibiscus, mandevilla, gardenia, jasmine, dipladenia, bouganvillea and the shrimp plant. Just a tip: it’s best that you make your way in here right around mid-spring because once we receive them, they don’t last long at all!

Succulents

Succulents, aka “fat plants”, whether it be annual or perennial, can be pretty easily identified once you understand what a succulent is. As shown above and alluded to by their nickname, a succulent is characterized by thicker, more fleshy part of their foliage, which generally indicates a storage of water to survive in warmer more arid environments.

 

Our selection of annual succulents for the southern Indiana region include aloe, jade plant, faucaria, sedevaria, graptoveria, sedum, senecio and rhipsalis pilocarpa. We also carry several varieties of cacti, which may or may not be considered a succulent, depending on the individual.
