Mother's Day and Wenke Greenhouse Go Together

Mother's Day has traditionally been the time when people in Kalamazoo think about getting their flowers as well as getting something for Mom.  Hanging baskets are extra popular because they add color instantly.  I wish I knew how many people actually used the baskets for hanging compared to removing the hangers and planting in a pot.  I had the opportunity to go to a Kentucky Derby party and noticed the beautiful Lemon Slice Calibrachoa in two large planters at the front door planted from baskets recently.  They were certainly inviting! 

For Mom, baskets are a beautiful gift.  I always enjoy the stories from people about the tradition of getting their mother a specific basket for Mother's Day.  Sometimes I get to hear about how the basket looked great all summer or the bird's nest that came to be in the basket or trying to figure out what the variety was as described by the husband sent to pick up a specific basket - these are all some of the many reasons I enjoy my job.  Flowers do bring happiness! 

If you're not sure what she would like, consider a gift certificate.  This week, get a free 4" decorated plant to present with a $50 gift certificate. And new this year are cut flower bouquets available at Wenke Greenhouses. 

Many have expressed an interest in the Top Secret Test Plant program new this year.  Learn more about trialing an assortment of new varieties in the article below.  Plants will be avialable the week of May 13th.  We're excited about this because it will help us to learn more about how the plants we sell actually perform for you which is really important to all of us at Wenke Greenhouses. 

Looking forward to seeing you!
