Happy New Year! Renew, Refresh Your Home and Garden With Succulents, Colorful Containers, Fountains, Bedding Plants and More!

As 2014 comes to a close, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for making us your “go to” garden center. As you know, we’re a year-round full-service nursery on 2+ acres with the best plants, products and knowledge to help you with all your gardening design needs.

New Beginnings

Get ready for a beautiful, bountiful year now. As one year ends, a new one brings us all a refreshing newness. Get your hands dirty this week by planting a small container with bedding plants. Treat yourself to that fountain you’ve always envisioned. Plot out a small area in your yard and plant it with succulents.

(Below) We offer a multitude of containers, from small to large to round to square. Buy some potting soil and plant a container with colorful bedding plants, succulents or Boxwoods. Ask one of our garden design experts, Steve or CJ, for guidance. They can advise you on container size and the best potting soils for your particular circumstances.

(Below) Planting in containers can create visual appeal in the landscape, entryways, pathways, and on patios, decks and balconies.

Succulents

Everywhere you look these days, you see succulents. Shopping center landscapes, traffic medians, and home gardens have discovered the depth of variety these drought-tolerant plants offer.

Visit us today to see our huge selection. We always have lots of pre-planted succulent arrangements available, and can help you with your custom design. We’ll even plant your creation in the container of your choice so you can take it home with you or have us deliver it.
