Spring is the Time,
Kerby's is the Place

March 7, 2013   

 
A lovely cherub or playful puppy statue
is a great way to add a personal touch
to your landscape.

The weather has been a little crazy these past few weeks, ranging from warm and sunny to breezy and cool. Of course it is nice to have a little taste of winter without freeze or frost, and the cooler weather makes it even more enjoyable to get out in the garden. See below for pictures of some new arrivals at Kerby's. It's spring and it's time to decorate your outdoors with bright and beautiful plants. And if you don't know where to start . . . just ask, Kerby's is always here to help make gardens beautiful.


Happy Gardening,
The Kerby's Nursery Family

Featured Plant
Dwarf Citrus
Citrus x
 
Dwarf citrus trees are in at Kerby's. If you have a small yard or no yard at all, never fear, you can still grow citrus trees. Dwarf citrus trees grow four to six feet tall, but still produce full sized fruits. They need full sun and grow equally well planted in the ground or in a pot. Kerby's has limes, lemons, oranges, tangerines, tangelos and grapefruits in dwarf trees, so there is something for every taste. And of course if you have more space in your yard, Kerby's has lots of non-dwarf citrus trees too.
