November News

The leaves of fall are one of nature's most gorgeous gifts but I find that I appreciate them even more after they have fallen off the trees. Yes, I said after. While I don't look forward to the work of cleaning up the leaves any more than you do, I have a very deep appreciation for what they will mean to my lawn and garden a few months from now. 


Where most people see fallen leaves as hours of raking, hauling and bagging, I see them as some of the best and most cost effective lawn fertilizer and garden bed mulch. Leaves contain a lot of the nutrients the trees extract from the earth before they fall to the ground. By mulching with my lawn mower, I will use them to replenish the lawn and garden soil and nourish all that grows within. If you don't already mulch your leaves, you might want to give it a try. It's an organic fertilizer, multi-vitamin and soil conditioner all-in-one and it's free.


Are your bulbs all planted? Many flower bulbs can go in the ground surprisingly late, but what they can’t do is sit forgotten in your garage all winter. Get those bulbs in the ground now.


Miniature or fairy gardening is one of the fastest growing trends in gardening right now! Stop in to check out our amazing selection of accessories and plants perfect for creating your own unique garden to enjoy indoors. Kids of all ages enjoy making miniature gardens. A fairy garden is a great way to set up a magical gardening experience for children. They will enjoy creating and playing and hopefully find themselves immersed in the magical miniature garden for countless hours of play. This could be a great parent/child project for the holidays.

Be sure to sign up for our Centerpiece and Holiday Porch pot workshops that we will be offering this holiday season. More information below or sign up on our website Classes & Events. These are very popular so be sure to sign up early as class size is limited.


We are looking forward to sharing the spirit of Christmas with you real soon.  We are readying our Poinsettia Paradise, as well as the many other wonderful things to help you "deck the halls" this Christmas season!  Nothing says "Christmas" like a beautiful poinsettia, whether adding beauty and warmth to your own home or presenting as the perfect gift to your hostess, teacher or client. We will have a fabulous selection of poinsettias in beautiful arrangements as well as a kaleidoscope of colors and some even sprinkled with stardust. There are so many sizes and colors, it will be hard to choose which one to bring home. So be sure to stop in and visit our Poinsettia Paradise again this holiday season! Poinsettias will be arriving the week of November 17th.


While preparing for the holiday season, store hours have changed to 9am-4pm M-Sat until November 22nd. Store hours will resume to 9am- 6pm M-Sat beginning November 24th all the way til Christmas Eve.


Enjoy what is left of fall and let's hope old man winter doesn't come knocking at our door too soon! Be sure to like us on Facebook to keep up with sales and events in the store

Paradise Pumpkin Pie

This pumpkin pie is one of my favorites at Thanksgiving every year. Even my husband, who doesn't really like pumpkin pie loves this one. There are two layers of paradise in this pumpkin pie. One of sweetened cream cheese and another of sugar, spices and pumpkin. Together, they're heavenly.
