Countdown To Easter-Happy Passover!

For Christians this is Holy Week which began yesterday on palm Sunday-and for those of the Jewish faith-passover begins at sundown this evening. The Harper boys wish all of you a great week and many blessings!

These spring holidays are a lot about having people to the house and of course eating. We are fortunate here to be able to have most all holiday meals extend to our outdoor living areas. Is your outdoor living area, or your curb appeal all that you want it to be? Our outdoor entertaining season is nearly year round but Easter/Passover is upon us, graduations are coming soon, Memorial day is on the horizon. Let us help get you ready. Whether it is one nicely planted pot for the front entry or a complete garden makeover or anything in between, we can help!

Have a great Holy Week /Passover and we hope to see or hear from you soon!

  • Warm weather lovers like hibiscus, oleander, red bird of paradise, orchid trees and the like are blooming and pushing new growth. Be sure to fertilize!
  • Roses are in their glory-the aphids and thrips are too-keep them fertilized and control the insects w/ the type and method your comfortable with. we sell several organics that work great-powdery mildew is still around as well keep it controlled with neem oil or general fungicides
