Living Christmas Trees, Poinsettias, Fresh Cut Greens and More

By Cathy Hough, general manager and buyer

It’s time to gather for Thanksgiving to share our warmth, love and affection for those near and dear to us. It’s also a beautiful time of year to give thanks and raise our thoughts in gratitude for all we have.

It’s never too early to have a living Christmas tree and poinsettias to enliven our hearts and get us celebrating the spirit of the holidays.

Stop in and ask Steve, Laurie or CJ about the different varieties of living Christmas trees (above) we have. The exquisite Vanderwulf Pine is a new addition to our collection; everyone who sees this gem is quite taken by it.

Our cut trees arrive this week and are in stock for sale beginning Friday, Nov. 23. We’ll also have fresh-cut greens, garlands and wreaths that day for a limited time during the holiday season.

The gorgeous Yuletide Camellia is tucked into the display above, its bright showy red flowers adding a classy touch to the holidays.
