(un)Official Start of Summer

Memorial Day Early Bird Get 10 off before 10; Checkout by 10am, get 10% off entire purchase!

It’s official: The unofficial start of summer is here. That is what we all associate with Memorial Day. Okay, perhaps all is a bit broad. I would say it is more accurate to describe it, as most believe this to be the unofficial start of summer. Perhaps most is even a bit presumptuous, after all; I have done no statistical analysis to back up my belief. Let me say that many, although not having been surveyed, hold to the belief that Memorial Day weekend signals the beginning of summer. Well… At least some feel that way.


Surely there exists among us, a few who are delighted at the thought of Memorial Day arriving; for it surely means summer cannot be far off. I have to believe, there exists in the innermost musings of some mortal amongst us, a passing thought as to the coincidental juxtaposition that Memorial Day presents in its precedence of the summer solstice. Perhaps it's just me.


Now that we've cleared that up, it's time to plan for the weekend. Before you start making the picnic baskets and getting the boat ready for the lake, it's just possible there are a few details around the garden that need some attention. As we roll through the latter part of spring, we continue to bring in selections for your garden. No matter what part of your landscape you are gardening in, we have what you're in need of! We are again stocked with annuals, perennials and anything else your heart desires.


Our hours will be making a bit of a change this coming week. We will be open Sunday Noon until 4. We will be open Memorial Day from 8 AM until Noon. Beginning Tuesday, we will be open from 8 AM until 5 PM through Saturday. As a special treat for you early birds, on Memorial Day only, you will receive 10% off your entire order so long as you check out before 10 AM.
