Now is the Time,
Kerby's is the Place

March 6, 2014   

Gorgeous flowers are the stars of Spring Fling.
It sure has been gorgeous outsid, and a little rain today should give way to an absolutely perfect weekend for getting out in the garden. That means that the weather will be wonderful for Kerby's annual spring fling, where the beautiful flowers of spring are the stars. This Saturday, we're going to try something new as well. From 10 to 4 on the hour we'll have refresher workshops on a variety of topics. (Click here for the schedule.) So come on out and get your green thumbs back with Kerby's. For some pictures of just a few of the cool flowers that have arrived to make your spring gardens beautiful, see below.

Miniature gardens created at the workshop this past weekend.
Thanks to everyone who came out to this past weekend's workshop on miniature gardening. We had a great time planting the gardens and learning a little bit about gardening on a small scale. We had so much fun at the workshop, that we'll have another hands-on workshop like this later in the spring season. In the meantime, Kerby's has plenty of pots, planting materials and accessories for creating the perfect garden, no matter what the size.

Happy Gardening,
The Kerby's Nursery Family
