Flats Fling begins Friday and Fresh Flavors will be Featured!

Here’s the answer to a frequently asked question:  Our annual sale on flats of Impatiens and Begonias is this Friday through Sunday, April 24-25-26.  All regular Impatiens for shade and “wax” Begonias for sun to partial shade will be JUST $12.99/flat!  That’s a $6/flat savings off of our regular price!  3 days only!  No limit.  No early birds — sale begins Friday at 9 a.m.  These flats will contain 32 plants. Candy will  restock as many colors as possible throughout the weekend, as available from our top quality growers.

What about frost?  Our plant experts advise that these and all of our annuals (we have many others arriving daily in flats and pots) can be kept in a cool bright area for a couple weeks until we’re sure the threat of frost has passed, or they can be planted now in beds and containers with some cloth covers kept handy for those colder nights that we hope are a thing of the past.

Gardening Gourmets!  Besides the best selection of plants, here’s another reason to shop on Day 1 of the Flat Sale:  Food Trucks!  Harvest Mobile Cuisine and Go Cupcake Curbside Confections will have their delicious fare available for purchase at Grandma’s Friday, April 24th, 11 a.m to 3 p.m.  You can shop, dine and keep on shopping or take it to-go. Chef Patrick from Harvest will feature his eclectic variety of sandwiches, soups and more, made from locally sourced meats and fresh-from-the-farm produce.

Flowers & Food -- always a great combination!

Our friend Jenny, so popular on our ladies nights (coming up May 7th, by the way) will also be here Friday 11-3 with her Go Cupcake truck full of from-scratch delicacies in a variety of flavors and lovely toppings.   Oh so delicious!

We’re off to a great start on Spring 2015!  Many beautiful trees found good homes during our first Tree Sale of the year, and today Lois and crew are filling a few empty spots in our Perennials selection after a very busy weekend.  The 25% off Perennials Sale continues through this Sunday, the 26th.
