December at the Nursery

The Christmas season is arriving at the nursery. The store is decorated in the Christmas theme with many gift ideas on display.

Live Christmas trees are now on display in the parking lot and cut trees are hanging in our shade area.

The Fall shipment of bare root fruit trees have arrived and are best planted in cool, damp weather. Our fruit tree selection, as shown on our Fruit Tree Page will be complete by mid-February.
