We have everything that makes gardening great.


As the frost of winter melts away, we are greeted by the often-turbulent embrace of spring, a season that renews not just the earth beneath our feet but also our spirits. It's a magical time when the air fills with the sweet scent of blooming flowers, and our gardens begin to stir with life once again.


Spring is the perfect moment to start fresh, to plant the seeds of tomorrow, and to watch with anticipation, as the first green shoots break through the soil. This season, let's embrace the joy of gardening, an activity that not only beautifies our surroundings but also nurtures our souls.


Consider starting with easy-to-grow flowers like marigolds or pansies, which add instant color to your garden. Remember, early spring is the ideal time to prep your soil, ensuring it's rich and ready for planting.  For those who appreciate the fruits of their labor, planting vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers can be incredibly rewarding, but be patient, until the soil warms sufficiently.


We’re here to help.  Both in person at the nursery, as well as, every Saturday morning, live at 8 AM. We clarify your gardening questions, and have a bit of fun along the way.  Follow these links to tune-in: “Gardening Inside Out”. Listen to our Podcast anytime! Follow and contact us:  FacebookEmailInstagram.  We give you newsworthy information about your garden!


This is also a season of gatherings and new beginnings. What could be more delightful than inviting friends and family to join in the joy of planting? Gardening together not only strengthens bonds but also creates lasting memories among the beauty of nature.  And on the practical side, extra hands to dig holes for trees and shrubs, are always welcome.


As your garden flourishes, so will your heart. The beauty of spring lies not just in what we see, but in what we feel. Let's step into this season with hope, joy, and a willingness to grow, not just our gardens, but ourselves, as well as our relationships.
