Introducing Our New Indoor Potting Bench!
Beginning Monday February 8th, our indoor potting bench will be open for business. Bring in your houseplants for a fresh start to the new year! Did you know that on average all houseplants need to be re-potted every 2 years? HELPFUL TIP: when you water your plant, does the water drain out immediately? Then it's time for new soil. Over time the minerals and nutritional benefits of the potting soil breaks down. The best remedy is re-potting with enriched new soil to keep your plants healthy, strong and disease resistant.
Calling All Garden Club members: During the month of February, take advantage of our FREE re-potting! 2 plants per person (10" diameter max) Orchids (not in bloom) Succulents and tropicals are welcome!
