Christmas Blooms

Wow, while it sure looks beautiful outside, I suspect this early snow and cold is going to make for a really long winter. I find it hard to believe that just a couple of weeks ago I still had flowers blooming in the garden and I was still finishing up some planting. I was able to get outside yesterday, but this time it was to do some sledding and create some snow angels with my son. Oh, and a lot of snow shoveling! Just another typical fall day in Michigan, right?


While the weather outside is frightful, we don't have to give up on growing things. Flowers and foliage outside sure are great, but inside, their beauty is even more delightful. We all know that fresh air is a must for good health and indoor plants are one of the simplest ways of creating a healthy indoor environment.  Indoor plants can also increase positive feelings and reduce stress, fear, and anger.  And if indoor plants do indeed lower stress levels, there is no better time than the holidays—those stressful, demanding holidays—to spruce up a room with something green. I know that watching my Christmas cactus bloom has really helped boost my mood this past week and the blooms will only get more abundant as the holidays approach.


We still have a openings for our Create Your Own Thanksgiving Centerpiece workshop this Saturday, November 22nd at 11:00 am. Sue, Michele and Cheryl will be instructing you how to make a centerpiece for your table using fresh flowers and greenery. Lots of fun and cost is only $25 which is payable after class. Register for this event on our website or call (269) 388-2266.


Can't make it to our class? Stop in and pick up one of our beautiful centerpieces already arranged for you for the low price of $25.


So you've made your list, but have you checked it twice? Read on for some great gift ideas when shopping for friends, family and co-workers…and even that special someone! Wenke gift certificates are always welcome by the gardener or homeowner on your list and are available in any denomination.


Our store hours are 9am-4pm M-Sat until November 22nd. Store hours will resume to 9am- 6pm M-Sat beginning on Monday, November 24th all the way until Christmas Eve. We will be closed on Thanksgiving.


We hope you have a happy and safe Thanksgiving! Be sure to like us on Facebook to keep up with sales and events in the store

Indoor Plants to Improve Health and Reduce Stress while Brightening your Home for the Holidays

Indoor plants bring welcome warm touches of life to enclosed, stuffy rooms and soothe us with their visual impact.

If you'd like to add a touch of "green" to your home, here are some beautiful plants that will fit right in with the rest of your Christmas decorations and brighten the holidays. Whether purchased for yourself or as gifts for teachers, special friends, or someone who can’t get out much anymore, the colorful blooms sing silent songs of joy. Use them for decorating by bunching them together in groups of reds, pinks, and whites. Place in the entry way, on the dining table, or anywhere that could use a spot of Christmas color. Dwarf Alberta spruce make ideal miniature Christmas trees perfect for those who don't have room for a big tree.

Creamy Baked Chicken

Here’s a simple casserole recipe that gives you those delicious, comfort food flavors all in a single dish that’s just delicious! I believe this recipe originated with Mr. Food but I have altered it a bit over the years. This is one recipe that my husband served to all his friends back in his bachelor days and became known as Al's Chicken. So quick and easy but tastes like you slaved over the stove! Enjoy!
