Eric, Diane and the rest of our staff are hard at work expanding our Home of Gnomes area.

Many Garden Centers are quiet and slow during these hot July and August days. Not Edward’s! We are busy planning for the future 🙂 Because you readers are our loyal blog and Facebook followers, we are going to let you in on a few little-known upcoming events and changes. Keep reading for the scoop.

Expanding the Home of Gnomes (Kids Area)
We always planned for our Home of Gnomes to be much bigger and more kid friendly. Last fall when it opened, we honestly got too busy with customers and other projects to finish working on our beloved kids area. Now that the spring rush has calmed down, we are expanding the Home of Gnomes. We are adding more decorations, lights and even a tree house! All of these projects will be completed before the Fall Festival this year. Check our Facebook page to keep an eye on our progress.

Things that Go Bump in the Night
Halloween is a HUGEly popular holiday in NEPA. Edward’s Garden Center wants to get in on the fun! This year we will have a huge Halloween Festival on the weekends in October. There will be decorations, food trucks, costumes, a maze and perhaps some ghoulish face painting. It will be great fun for the whole family and we are super excited to share this with you.

Make Your Own Garden Seminars August 7 & 14
Our most fun hands-on seminars are coming up this Sunday and next Sunday. On Sunday August 7, the Garden Center will hold a Make Your Own Air Plant Display workshop. For a $20 fee, you can make an air plant display to take home and learn all about air plants.

 

On August 14, our super popular Fairy, Gnome and Miniature Garden workshop with Diane will take place. Last year, the group that participate had a blast digging in the dirt and creating their own miniature gardens to take home. For $20 you can make a gorgeous display in a container we provide or you can be creative and bring something from home.

There are spots left for both of these hands-on workshops. Make sure to call and save your spots before they fill up! 570-287-4329 ext 1.

Other Miscellaneous News
In just about three to four weeks our shipment of Mums will be arriving! This is definitely a favorite time of year for us and we know many of you wait for this arrival too. Also, be on the look out for another Facebook contest sometime in August. And as always, stop by the Garden Center to visit with the animals, chat with our staff and see all of the items we get in new week after week.
