Discover the Fun of Gardening

March 8, 2012   

Kim and Joey's niece Sawyer passing out popcorn at Spring Fling 2011.

We don't know about you, but it's our favorite time of the year and we think it's worth celebrating. This Saturday, March 10th from 10 to 4, join us for Kerby's annual Spring Fling. Daisies, agastaches and salvias are putting on a show just hoping to become a part of your garden (See below for some of the cool flowers we've found this year.) And to sweeten the deal we'll have cotton candy, popcorn and lemonade so that you can enjoy a snack while strolling the boardwalk. It's a beautiful time of year, so come out and join us. You will be sure to Discover the Fun of Gardening.


Happy Gardening,
Kim, Joey and Mark

New Spring Flowers

A flower is worth a thousand words, so we'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Come out to Kerby's to see them in person to really appreciate how beautiful they are.

Wendy's Wish Salvia, a butterfly magnet.
White Spoon African Daisies just look cool!
You have to touch the strawflower . . . it's crunchy.
Agastache is in the mint family, so not only are its flowers beautiful, the leaves have a delightful fragrance.
The foxglove is always a spring favorite.
This is cool - a red shrimp tree.

Upcoming Events

Kerby's has lots of fun planned for the garden in 2012, including workshop favorites on vegetables, herbs and roses, as well as some new workshops on bulbs and trees. There has never been a better time to Discover the Fun of Gardening.




Spring Fling
Saturday, March 10 10am - 4pm

Bring on the color! You won't be able to resist all the amazing flowers we've found for this year. Come out on Saturday and enjoy some fresh-popped popcorn and lemonade and take a stroll around the boardwalk to see all of this season's new arrivals.  There will also be a fun activity for the kids!


Workshop: Planting and Caring for Trees
Saturday, March 17th at 10:00 am

Do you want a wonderful shade canopy that adds value to your house? Or a spring-flowering tree that lights up your landscape? Then you need a tree! This workshop will teach you all about planting and caring for new trees and give you all the tricks we use to make sure a tree gets off to a good start. We'll also talk about caring for trees as they grow to maximize growth and beauty.





Workshop: Growing Delicious Herbs
Saturday, March 24 at 10am

We all love food. And we love food even more when it's cooked with tasty herbs.  Growing your own herb garden is easy and it is a great way to always have fresh herbs for all of your favorite recipes. Come to this workshop to learn all about growing herbs and what herbs can be used for.





Workshop: Fruit Trees for Small Spaces
Saturday, March 31st at 10:00 am

Juicy and delicious, there is nothing like picking fruit from a tree you've grown and eating it on the spot. But not everyone has a huge yard with room for an orchard. At this fruit tree workshop we'll focus on some new dwarf varieties of fruit trees that are great for your yard, and talk about how to keep trees smaller when space is limited.




3rd Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday, April 7th at 10am SHARP!
Please note the Easter egg hunt is on Saturday

Bring your Easter basket and get ready for a whole lot of fun . . . it's the 3rd annual Easter Egg Hunt at Kerby's. Starting right at 10:00am, be ready to hunt and see how many Easter Eggs you can find hidden among the beautiful flowers.
