Hello Horticulture Enthusiasts!
It’s back and better than ever! In case you missed out on the sneak peek preview sale, you still have two more opportunities to come and pick out your perfect poinsettias! With 16 varieties, from the sparkling speckles of Red Glitter to the striking variegation of Tapestry Red to the snowlike Alaska White there’s sure to be a variety for you! All 6.5″ pots are $10 each averaging 3 to 6 blooms per plant. We accept cash and check only, sorry no credit cards are accepted at this time. We hope to see you there!
