Container Gardening, Strawbales, and Redbuds


With the warm weather (and spring) finally here – it has a been a blur of activity here at the garden center.

This past Thursday evening, we hosted a container gardening workshop. There were beautiful containers created and fun shared by all.   Grace Ramos did a wonderful job of helping everyone with the creation of their containers!  We look forward to holding this workshop again next spring!

We have a great assortment of specialty annuals, the thrillers, spillers and fillers for your containers!  For those not wanting to create your own container – we have many beautiful hanging baskets or we will gladly plant your container for you!

We have gotten in straw bales now for those needing bedding for their gardens, strawberry patches or for the straw bale gardens.
