Spring is in the air!

Spring is in the air…..or so says Punxsutawney Phil. According to the little rascal, spring will come early this year. We are certainly glad to hear that!

Here at Edward’s Garden Center, even the most mild winter feels too long. We just can’t wait to start bringing in the flowers and visiting with our friends and customers. Luckily, we are down to less than a month until we open.

Our event list is almost complete and will be announced later this week. Make sure to keep an eye on the website and on the Facebook page for the list. We are excited to bring back many favorite events and add some new hands on seminars.

In other news, we want to thank everyone who participated in our last Facebook contest. It is so exciting to have more and more participation each time we have a contest. That being said, look out for another contest next week. Start thinking about your favorite thing to do at the Garden Center, because the contest will center on it.

Can’t wait to see everyone back at the Garden Center in a few weeks! Enjoy the rest of “winter” this year. 😉
