9/2/21 :: August Perennial of the Month ::
We did not have any correct entries for our August POTM, so we'll hold it over for another month and see if anyone can come close. What is it?
9/2/21 :: Labor Day and September Hours ::
We plan to be open on Labor Day, 9-3, and our September hours will be M-F 9-6, Sat 9-4, closed Sundays. We're getting geared up for Fall with many items already available like mums and fall planters... other fall decorating items coming soon!
8/2/21 :: August Hours ::
Our hours for August will be M-F 9-6, Sat 9-4, closed Sunday. Still restocking!
8/2/21 :: July Perennial of the Month ::
Only a few correct entries this past month for our July POTM, Polemonium 'Stairway to Heaven', well done! August's POTM is up, can you guess what it is?
7/1/21 :: June Perennial of the Month ::
Quite a few guesses this past month, but nobody correctly guessed our June POTM. So, we'll hold it over for another month. Try again...
7/1/21 :: July Hours ::
We are moving to summer hours...M-F 9a-6p, Sat 9a-4p, closed Sundays, and we will be closed on July 5. Still re-stocking with fresh perennials, annuals, and shrubs!
6/1/21 :: June Hours ::
Another May has passed, and we cannot thank our customers enough for the patience and support during these past busy weeks. We continue into June, with hours changing to M-F 9a-8p, Sat 9a-5p, closed Sundays.
6/1/21 :: May Perennial of the Month ::
We're not sure if our most recent POTM winner is just that good or just had a lucky guess...maybe both! Our May POTM was correctly identified as Eupatorium dubium 'Little Joe', but we would have accepted any Eupatorium. Congratulations for nailing it, and thank you to all who participated. Our (easy?) June POTM is now posted, make your guess now...
5/28/21 :: Memorial Weekend Hours ::
We'll be open on Friday 5/28 9a-9p, Saturday 5/29 9a-8p, Sunday 5/30 closed, and Memorial Day 9a-4p. The freedoms we enjoy were paid for by those who sacrificed all... we honor and remember. Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
5/1/21 :: May Hours ::
After a short April, we move into May with slightly adjusted hours...M-F 9a-9p, Sat 9a-8p, closed Sundays. (We'll be open a little later on Saturday May 8 until 9p for our Mother's Day crowd.) Thank you to all of our customers so far, it's been a busy season already!
5/1/21 :: April Perennial of the Month ::
Many, many entries this past month for our POTM, mostly for "Clustered Bellflower" and other close entries. But there were actually a few that correctly submitted Campanula glomerata 'Freya'...maybe only guesses, or maybe very keen eyes. So, well done everyone! Our May POTM is now posted, should be an easy one (more lucky/keen entries?).
4/23/21 :: W.W. open for 2021 ::
We are pleased to be open again, and will do all we can to operate safely and efficiently. 2021 is shaping up to be even more challenging than 2020 in many ways, and we ask for your patience as we try to navigate limited supplies, shortages, and staffing challenges. Our April hours will be M-F 9a-8p, Sat 9a-5p, closed Sundays.
4/1/21 :: March Perennial of the Month ::
We had a ton of entries this past month for our POTM, and no wonder, it was a photo of the tried and true Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm'. Congratulations to our winner, and thank you to the many who participated. Take a look at April's POTM...
3/18/21 :: 2021 Spring Opening announced ::
We are planning our 36th annual Spring Opening for April 23! Stay tuned as Covid-19 guidelines may change and cause further changes...
3/1/21 :: February Perennial of the Month ::
A fairly easy one as we accepted anything related to Achillea...it was actually Achillea 'Sassy Summer Sangria'. Thank you all for participating. March's POTM is up for grabs, another easy one!
2/1/21 :: January Perennial of the Month ::
We didn't receive a correct guess from the POTM that was held over from December, it was Perovskia 'Denim & Lace'. We would have accepted anything Perovskia related, and we realize there are many flowers resembling that family of plants. So, nice try all of you, we'll have our February POTM posted shortly.
1/4/21 :: December Perennial of the Month ::
Thought this would be an easier one, but without any correct entries, we'll hold it over one more month. One last chance...
12/1/20 :: November Perennial of the Month ::
No correct entries for our November Perennial of the Month were placed, so we'll hold it over for December. Guess again...
11/14/20 :: 2020 season ending ::
And what a season it was! We would like to sincerely thank all of our customers for this past season...it was not easy for anyone, but your patience and support throughout this challenging year was deeply appreciated. We'll be open (office hours M-F 9-4) and always online during the off-months, so remember those W.W. Gift Cards for the holidays. Stay tuned for 2021 updates, and thank you all again!
11/2/20 :: October Perennial of the Month ::
Originally from September, our POTM was correctly guessed right away after posting (Lonicera periclymenum, Honeysuckle, actually the variety 'Scentsation'). Our November POTM is now posted, check it out!
10/28/20 :: 2020 nearly finished ::
We are in the process of cleaning up for the year and garden center hours will vary. If you plan to visit, just call ahead (616.669.0134) and we'll help you out. Still some nice 5" mums and some other decorating options available. And as always, we continue to be available for gift card purchases, by phone, online, or if you want to stop by.
10/1/20 :: October Hours ::
Our October hours will be the same as September... M-F 9-6, Sat 9-4, closed Sunday. Still a great selection of mums, along with plenty of other fall decorating ideas. Stop in soon as they are going fast!
10/1/19 :: September Perennial of the Month ::
No correct entries were submitted for September's POTM, so we'll hold it over another month and see who can guess our October POTM!
