2019 a year to come

2019, a year of more classes, a year of teaching, a year of new contacts, a year to be excited about.  Wow that seems like such a large list of goals to achieve in such a short amount of time.  Well, check, check, check, and check; goals accomplished. lol  It is easy to set your goals for a season when they are already set in motion.  I didn’t say that my goals were accomplished, I did say that they are set and on their way to success.  

A year of more classes.  In 2018, I had started to offer succulent classes in the spring, followed by annual planting classes, which lead to fall arrangements and Christmas centerpieces.  I knew that I enjoy teaching but after a season like last year I now know that I LOVE!!! teaching about plants.  So when the opportunity came to do more classes and fundraisers for 2019, I jumped on the ride. I can’t wait for it all to start and I look forward to seeing you throughout the season.

A year of teaching. Well who knew a greenhouse junky could teach.  lol It is one of my passions and I love to see children become more active in gardening and knowing where their food comes from.  It is satisfying to see those little and sometimes not so little eyes light up when their cup of wheat, peas, whatever we plant, comes out of the ground.  They really feel a sense of pride that they can grow something. I feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that I helped in that process.  LOVE IT!!!!

A year of new contacts. With doing the classes away from the greenhouse, it has opened up my doors to new and exciting people that are like minded and eager for spring, eager to plant, and eager to make things beautiful.  Being surrounded by like-minded people is inspiring and fills this greenhouse lady’s heart with gratitude.

A year to be excited about.  This year not only are we offering more classes and fundraising opportunities but I am opening an online store that will feature plants or potted arrangements for that week only.  This will be a one week special only and they are a one of a kind service that we will provide.  Limited amounts will be posted during that week and you will have the chance to purchase or save your “Weekly Treat” through our website store.  The offers will run from March 12, 2019 to June 11, 2019.  I am excited and nervous all in the same breath.  As with anything new it is the unexpected that has me up at night lol

SOOOOOO…. we will be starting production at the end of February with planting geraniums and so on and so forth.  I’ve got some new staff coming this year so stop by and say hello.  We will be opening for annual sales only May 1, 2019 to May 13, 2019 which will give us the time to bring in the water plants, trees, shrubs, perennials, etc. that usually arrive around May 10 or so.  Starting May 13, 2019 we will be fully open to sell all our available products.  What I ask of you if your coming the first 10 days of May is to be patient, don’t mind the chaos, and please ask for assistance.  We have ALOT!!!!! on our plates and will be moving product into its place for the season. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Take care until next time,

Opening week!!!

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Monday, April 30, 2012,

Hurray, May 1 is opening day.  I'm very excited to get the season started.  We are cramped right now for room but once the weather smartens up I can move some plants to other areas.  This past week has kept us busy with hanging basket and wave trimmings.  Yes it is sad to see blossoms get chopped off but it is nice to see them bloom fuller next time.  I have a few pictures from this week.

This is a picture of a begonia in one of my cone baskets. I love the orange.  The bottom picture is a Dar...

It's almost here

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Thursday, April 26, 2012,

Opening day is fast approaching and I'm excited. As I run in circles, Lorraine and the crew have been busy making sure the plants are looking great.  It is very much appreciated by me.  Well, I was trying to think about what I could write today and I remembered the exciting news.  I was able to get a supply of Flora America Tomato seeds.  I haven't planted the tomatoes myself but they are suppose to be a very nice plant with abundant fruit.  I will be trying them myself this year. 

I took a fe...

Friendly Reminder

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Saturday, April 14, 2012,

Just a friendly reminder to anyone that is interested in getting their pots planted, (either patio or hanging), you can bring your pots to the greenhouse at anytime for me to plant.  If you want new pots this year, I do have a variety of pots available. 
For new customers, I do custom planting of any pot you would like planted.  I charge for the plants, soil and for the pot if you prefer new.  I then store the planted pot until you are ready to pick it up.  Also, if anyone is wanting a specif...

Let it grow, Let it grow, why not snow!!

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Saturday, April 7, 2012,
What a warm winter, beautiful spring days, and today snow.  The greenhouses are tucked in tight and ready for some nasty temperatures.  Here's hoping that it doesn't last too long.  I am excited for this year.  We have some new products that everyone will fall in love with.  There are some Rex Begonias, different alteranthera, a new croton, some cool torenia, a new variety of potato vine, new and improved wave colors, as well as new varieties, a lot of new succulents and cacti, and many more....
