Russo's Food News + Specials

Summertime is definitely here and that means we have peaches at Russo's! Our delicious peaches come from Titan Farms in South Carolina. Titan Farms is considered one of the best peach growers in the country - and it is located close to where Tony Russo picked peaches when he was a child. See our "Tony Tip" below on these special peaches.

Our garden department receives shipments of plants every day - and this week we are enjoying a robust arrival of perennials from around New England! Take a look at our store this weekend.

Have you ever wondered how to make sure your plants stay bright and cheerful all summer long? Tony Russo's latest Tony Tip shows how vibrant flowers (like our Dahlias from Michael's Greenhouse in Cheshire, Connecticut) grow even better when you do something called "deadheading." Deadheading? Is that something you do at a @Deadandcompany concert? No! Check out our latest Tony Tip on deadheading below. Also, did you know that you can cut flowers to put in a vase from your Dahlia plant? And it actually helps the plants grow! Learn about this method in another Tony Tip below.
