Spring Open House Seminars and Workshops

Spring Has Sprung! Shop Sales and Get Inspired During Seminars & Workshops

We’ve started shedding our jackets and cracking our car windows. Finally it feels like spring and we’re all itching to get back in the garden.  Brush up your tree and rose knowledge, learn what’s new in attracting hummingbirds, and maybe even get your hands a little dirty during our upcoming Spring Open House seminars and workshops! Snag early season specials on select plants and other home and garden goodies to jump-start the season!

Our sales flyer will be available to view on Tuesday, April 23rd.
