We will be open tomorrow afternoon starting at 1pm for last minute Mother’s Day shoppers. We have planters, hanging baskets and decorations. A nice tree or shrub could also be a great idea!
Bring mom along for a fun afternoon outing!
What a beautiful spring day today! The geese have come back and the robins have arrived. Yes, it is definitely spring … at least until it snows again. I’ve been extremely busy in the greenhouse and the shop area. The plants are coming right along, and I’m excited to be offering quite a few new varieties. I have lots more perennials and shade plants. There will be quite a few vegetables to choose from when it’s warm enough to plant. I’ve been busy putting together more hanging baskets and planters. But the best part of all are the new things being added! I will have a selection of trees and shrubs this year. I will also be offering vegetable seeds along with onions and potatoes. On top of that the shop area is being expanded to include supplies such as potting soil, fertilizers, decorations, etc. It’s going to be a great year and I hope you can stop by to check it out!
By the way, due to the weather I will be pushing back my opening day to April 17th.
I have taken a VERY long break from the greenhouse. Now is that time of year where I start getting back into the swing of things. I wanted to give you an update of what is happening this time of year. I have ordered all my “babies” (seedlings) for arrival in early March. I am starting more plants from seed this year and they started arriving this past week. Some of those will be planted in the next few days! I have quite a few new types of plants this year. (I’m still trying to figure out where I’m going to put everything!!) There will be many more perennials and also more shade-loving plants.
The shop area is a disaster. I have accumulated some goodies to sell this spring but right now everything is piled on top of each other. I have also been working on staining cedar shingles to go outside on the front part of the shop. They are all done, just waiting for the hubbie to put them up. I’m hoping they will be up before I open!
On another note, I had two beautiful signs made. Last year I know a few people had some problems finding our place, but this year that shouldn’t be the case. These signs will be hard to miss! But again, another project for the hubbie.
It was a great season, but things are definately slowing down! I am no longer keeping regular business hours, but I am still selling plants. If you’re interested in stopping out, your best bet would be to call first to make sure I’m there. Or you can just try your luck — I might be around! Just in case, my cell # is 319-231-3443.
Almost forgot – everything is 50% off!
I want to let everyone know that the greenhouse is starting to wind down for the summer. The selection is getting slimmer, so you know what that means — everything is on SALE!!! Yes, all plants are at least 30% off from now until I close for the year. I still have tons of petunias along with impatiens, coleus, million bells, and lots of other varieties. If you have an open spot you’re looking to fill, stop on by and pick something out. Just a reminder, my hours are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 9 – 5 and Thursday 10 – 7.
The Grand Opening is this weekend. Everything is going quickly and many varieties are already sold out! Come check out the greenhouse before more disappears! –But we’ll have plenty of cupcakes and lemonade.
What a great first day! I wasn’t quite sure how things would go today, but it went much better than expected. Thanks to all who stopped by!
Just a reminder, I will be open Wed – Sat from now until everything is sold out (or sometime in July). If you missed us today, catch up with us sometime soon.
The greenhouse is bursting at the seams! There is more work to be done than time in the day. I have a few new pictures and will post them soon. We’ve been busy finishing up hanging baskets and pots. Make sure you take a look at them! I know the weather is a little too cool to put any plants outside, but stop by Saturday to check things out. We will also have a few goodies to sample — my kids are very excited to have their lemonade and cupcake stand set up!
We will be opening April 14th. Because the weather is so unpredictable, the Grand Opening won’t be until May 12th. Please feel free to stop by in April just to check things out and get ideas for later in the season!
