  • Saturday, February 23, 2019; 9am-6pm
  • Sunday, February 24, 2019; 11am-5pm

Don't miss the Lawn and Garden Show this week! This is a great chance to come and take a peek at what we have in store for you this spring. It's also a wonderful opportunity to stop by and say hello. (We always love seeing our old friends!) But the best reason to come to the Lawn and Garden Show is to pick up our brochure with all those season-long, money-saving coupons! These are beyond the weekly web-coupons. They could save you thousands! (If you buy that many hanging baskets. :-) ) Many people come to the show just to get the coupons. Pray for nice weather!

We hope you will come out to our Spring Open Houses to see what we have in store for you this spring. You will not want to miss these! These are the fun, extra special events of the year! These Open Houses are the two days of the year (and the only two days of the year) that we give guided tours of all the "backside" of our operation, the growing areas; those areas labeled "Employees Only" - without having to do any work! There will be brownies and coffee and door prizes, as well as lots of plants for sale! Mark your calendars! (Please note that these are the only two days we will be open to the public until we open for the spring season.)
