There hasn’t been much time to write lately, so with this post I hope to catch you up with a bit of what’s been going on at Oak Street Garden Shop.
The day before Thanksgiving the first truckload of Fraser fir Christmas trees arrived, and all hands were on deck to unload and begin setting them up for sale, pick-up, or delivery.
This year the trees (As usual!) were beautiful and full, and they disappeared quickly. Because Thanksgiving was early this year, many wanted to select their tree and begin decorating. We were ready and had the goods!
The trees, wreaths, garlands, and other outdoor decorating staples are the first things people want as they begin to ready their homes for the holidays.
It’s a predictable progression of decorating, beginning outside and then moving inside. Our greenhouse flowers and arrangements are in high demand through
the middle of the month, and we make sure to have enough of the most beautiful flowers and greenery to work with.
Gifts and centerpieces come last, and we enjoy creating custom pieces for people, either with our containers or theirs.
This post shows some of our work, but if you’re in the area and would like to see what we’re up to, stop in, as our work area is right up front.
We’ll be taking some time off after the Christmas holiday and hope you’re able to do the same. If you’re signed up for our weekly emails on this website, they’ll be monthly January – March and will resume each week beginning April, 2019. Holiday Hours: Dec. 23-27 Closed; Dec. 28-29 Open; Dec. 30 Closed; Dec 31 Open; Jan 1, 2019 Closed
