Welcome to Sperbeck's Nursery
We began building our business in 1986 and opened the doors May 16th, 1987. Our mission for our business is a place where our guests and friends are welcomed and they will.....
"Be aware of the blessings of the beauty of this world, of the joy of friendships shared and of the peace found only in Him"
....through the gardens and the landscapes of which we are blessed to help create.
We enjoy helping our customers at the nursery take home the right plant or garden accessory for the place in their garden. We delight teaching customers how to be successful with their garden projects from planting, to properly caring for them and enjoying them as they add beauty and value to their homes for years to come. We love designing or installing landscapes, now for two generations of clients. We appreciate maintaining our landscapes to allow them to mature into the beauty for which they were created.

Like a tiny petunia on steriods, calibrachoa (called Million Bells) grows and flowers at an amazing rate. These extremely vigorous plants make for colorful, cascading accents in containers or hanging baskets, along walkways, flower beds and garden walls. Easy to grow, low maintenance plant that displays masses of bell-shaped, petunia-like blooms from spring until the first frost. The blooms cover long, cascading branches. Sun-loving callibrachoa make a rainbow display of bright colors. A great choice for those wishing to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden.
Water Calibrachoa generously, soaking the soil around the roots, and then don't water again until the top 1 to 2 inches of soil feels dry. Calibrachoa is relatively drought-tolerant (once established) and prone to rot in soggy soil. Water the soil instead of the foliage also helps prevent rot.
Add a slow release fertilizer to the soil at planting time. There after, feed the plant monthly, using a water-soluble fertilizer or formula 49. Always water immediately after applying fertilizer. Never fertilize a dry plant!
Trim the plant in midsummer or any time calibrchoa begins to look tired and less vibrant. Calbroachoa isn't fussy and is safely trimmed back to where it looks neat and tidy. Blooming decreases for a few days but rebounds quickly as trimming the plant stimulates new growth
Calibrachoa is self-cleaning and requires no deadheading. This is a plus for low maintenance gardeners, as there's no need to manually remove dead growth.
Well drained soil, organically rich and full sun is the best for Calibrachoa. Tolerates very light shade, but flowering decreases as the amount of part shade increases.
