We are busy getting ready to open in Mid-April! It all started with 100,00 unrooted cuttings the second week of December, and have been steadily growing and expanding ever since.
We will have several new varieties of petunias and other standards, and some surprises for 2017, but you’ll have to wait until April for the specifics.
As of last weekend, Leo has begun the exacting process of seeding things like alyssum, wave petunias, dusty miller etc. I will try to post a video of our amazing machine in action very soon.
If you need some succulents or gift certificates between now and our re-opening in the spring please let us know, but CALL US at 814-364-2881, as we are TOO BUSY spend much time on the computer. Please share, word of mouth is our main form of advertising!
Just a reminder…we are open thru October and maybe some of November (depending on the weather). And the CLEARANCE SALE is ongoing!
Our plants look amazing right now! Huge, new showy planters for sun or shade (all sizes, starting at $9.99), an expanded perennial section (most $3.99 for for 5 1/2″ pots), and hardy mums for planting and decorating. 8″Mums are $3.99 for now (they are just budding up), $4.99 as the season progresses. Larger planters coming along.
Check out or Facebook page for lots of new photos of what we’re up to!
We are now open Monday – Saturday, 10 to 6 pm, and Sundays from 10 to 5 pm.
Lots of fresh, new planters and baskets! New perennial plantings. Anticipating a great mum season starting in September!
In order to continue accepting credit and debit cards as a payment choice, we are now adding 3% to all card transactions.
How this works: When your order is rung up and you opt to pay with a card, we will calculate the 3% and add it to your total. This total amount is what is charged to your card; you are not billed for this later by your card company.
(So if your order is $20, the 3% would be 60 cents, and your new total would be $20.60.)
Cash and check payments are not subject to this charge, as there is no processing fee associated. Over the years, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the usage of credit cards, and hope that you’ll understand this surcharge helps us keep prices lower for everyone. Thank you!
Now that it’s May, we’ve expanded our hours! Now open 8 to 8, Monday through Saturday, and 10 to 5 on Sundays.
Monday thru Saturday, 9 am – 5 pm; Sundays, 10 am – 5 pm
Beginning Saturday, April 9th, we will be open 9 am – 5pm, Monday thru Saturday. Remember it is EARLY and we are still working, so excuse the mess! We will have flats of cool weather vegetables, pansies, snapdragons, etc. Also some early tomatoes and peppers for those of you who just can’t wait! We are currently working on planting perennials, and Leigh Ann’s FANTASTIC herb section is growing with lots of larger pots this year. Jennifer’s succulent section is HUGE (and ready), more extensive than ever, more varieties, bowl choices, and houseplant sized Jades, etc. Feel free to stop in just to soak it all in, and get ideas for when the weather becomes more predictable.
This is a really busy time of year for us! May is our busiest month, with two major holiday weekends to prepare for. In addition to our retail customers, we also have wholesale customers coming in, and we send multiple truckloads/thousands of plants a week to a wholesale auction.
Trust me when I say that we’re working our hardest to get everything planted, and then also watered and maintained! Planting is only the tip of the iceberg… We’re still doing a lot of planting, both of things that we’ve sold out of already (!) and things we didn’t get to yet because of space constraints or weather. If you’ve been following the weekly photo updates, you’ve seen the place packed as full as we can get it and then big chunks of space abruptly opening up again. Every day we’re planting more. If there’s something that you’ve been looking for and we told you we’d have it, we will, but it can be really hard to pin down an exact date. We also buy at the auction– things we don’t have ready yet or don’t have starter plants for. This means our availability can change very quickly! Just know that we’re doing our best, and if you’re waiting on something specific, give us a call to check on it (rather than making a long drive!).
A big thank you to all our lovely customers! 🙂 We think you’re pretty rad.
