Wow it seems like February flew by, however I think that I always say that due to it being such a short month. With the longer days, and warmer weather I know you like me are excited for gardening season and seeing all of the beautiful flowers in your yard. Well, I suppose I’m excited for my husband to do the gardening. In our house it’s I point he plants. So, because I’m so excited I’m going to share our favorite garden centers with you each week this month for the business of the week.
Up first is Starkey’s Corner Farm & Garden I would have to say the main reason we love Starkey’s is because it’s on Glencoe Road literally 5 minutes from our home. When we get into the yard and see that we need something for a pot or space in the yard it’s so quick and easy to jump in the car and make a quick trip. Which in all honesty is pretty nice. Do not get me wrong I know that some of you love your Fred Meyer Garden Center or other big box garden center and that’s fine, however often times the service and knowledge you get from a local nursery is AMAZING.
So what types of items will you find at Starkey’s?
- Edibles – herbs, berries, fruit trees
- Fertilizer and Soil
My husband loves Starkey’s because he can typically get straw/hay for the garden to cover up our asparagus plants in the winter. It’s honestly just a fun place to go and roam and get ideas of what types of plants are out there. It gets you to thinking about what types of plants you may want to see in your yard or container/patio gardens. As the days get longer and the sun is out I encourage you to take a trip and get some inspiration.
