Pat will present an array of beautiful professional slides from two of the premier producers of our line of specialty annuals.  It is hard to keep up with all the new plants that have arrived on the consumer market over the past few years.  Many of which merit much attention as they are so garden worthy and make container gardening so much more interesting than ever before.  See some great combination ideas for your own planters and some of the amazing plants that are waiting to be discovered.

CHRISTMAS SEASON


Our shop will once again overflow with some great Holiday decorations, gifts, ornaments, and many unique items for both home and garden.  We carefully chose our entire stock and hope you will find some time to see what we are offering for sale this holiday season.

We incorporate some 15-20 varieties of pinecones and other natural and tasteful decorative accents into our wreaths, baskets, centerpieces, swags,  & Yule logs.  We produce plain, simply decorated and ornate arrangements/wreaths for a variety of tastes and situations.   We will continue to have evergreen roping available for sale and  beautiful poinsettias in red, white and pink in several sizes.  For those of you who have never been to our shop at Christmas Time, we think you will be surprised at our holiday decorating, entertaining and gift choices.
