Let the Spring Season Begin!

I had to laugh when I read the article in the Gazette that an Ohio prosecutor has light-heartedly filed charges against the famous Pennsylvania groundhog who fraudulently "predicted" an early spring.  The article goes on to say that the groundhog actually had it right but it was the handler's fault for misinterpreting.  So it sounds like the groundhog may escape the charges afterall.  (Gazette, Tuesday, March 26th p. A9)

Spring is starting at Wenke Greenhouses!  The store is now open from 8-4 Monday to Friday.  We have some early spring annuals for color, fresh herbs & your first vegetable starter plants.  Learn about Senetti, one of my favorite plants, in the article below. 

Quick Classes begin Thursday, April 11th at 6 PM.  Learn about spring maintenance & dividing perennials.  Join us for a tour of our production greenhouse located at 2525 North 30th, Kalamazoo on Saturday, April 13th from 9-10:30.  Plant enthusiasts, spouses, children and friends are all welcome.  We'll walk you through the process from starting the seed to transplant to finish.  Register by calling the store at 269-388-2266 or at www.wenkegreenhouses.com

We're really looking forward to seeing everyone again soon.
