Our first year is almost over. We’re winding down. We had a great time this year and we hope you did, too. We’d like to thank all our new customers, both retail and wholesale, for enabling us to firmly establish our nursery in this ever-brightening corner of Rockland County – the great Village of Sloatsburg.
A highpoint of the season was our Octoberfest with pumpkins and fun for all, with an “official” ribbon cutting ceremony led by Sloatsburg’s mayor, the honorable Carl S. Wright.
And to close our year, we had Santa and Mrs. Claus visiting us before their trip back to the North Pole to get things all set for Christmas. They spent lots of time with all our young visitors, and we hope that all Santa’s promises to them came true with lots of presents under the trees. We’re sure they did, especially if the trees were purchased from us, since ours were the freshest, fullest, and most fragrant – Mmmm….that heavenly scent of Frasier firs……
But, all winter long, we are still selling our salt and firewood, as well as the fire pits you need to burn your wood in for some cozier outdoor winter evenings. Call us to arrange delivery or pick-up time.
All of us at Sloatsburg Nursery wish you and yours a Happy and Healthy New Year and a warm and safe winter.
One of the great pleasures of gardening is to be able to sit in one’s backyard paradise and enjoy the fruits of one’s labors — the many shapes, colors and heavenly scents of the flowers from both annuals and perennials. Many gardeners think that perennials are best — plant them only once, and they come back every year, faithfully providing almost labor-free beauty to your landscape. Annuals are the more showy ones with prolific blooms that can appear all season long, in every color of the rainbow, but sadly, they perish with the first frost. However, one good thing about annuals is that you can always plant new and different varieties every spring, so that your garden view will always be a fresh one with new beds, new colors, new arrangements.
Whatever you choose – annuals, perennials, or both – we will be ready with advice to help you pick the right ones for your planting situation. Much depends on the location, whether it be sun, shade or a combo, as well as the soil quality. Will your plantings flourish in a wet, boggy area, or must the soil be well-drained for their best performance?
Now is the time to plant, before it gets too hot. Stop by today and choose from our bountiful stock of annuals and perennials, as well as our vibrant greenery – shrubs and trees of all sizes, from arborvitaes (the ones that deer do NOT eat) to fruit trees, from rhododendrons to roses.
This week has really been busy — truckloads of fresh, beautiful planting stock have been arriving daily. Our staff has been super busy artfully arranging everything on our fabulous, terraced grounds. We have extended our business hours, and we are now also open on Sunday from 9 to 3. Even though we haven’t gotten our big Sloatsburg Nursery signage yet, we ARE open now! Come on over and GROW WITH US!
We are busy getting organized and ready for opening day, which hasn’t been set yet. Meanwhile we are already well-stocked with mulch, stones, rocks, etc. for you to start beautifying your landscape! And now is the time to think about stocking up on firewood to keep you nice and toasty all winter long.
Call us now — we’re ready to deliver.
We cannot wait to open our full-service nursery to offer you top-quality plantings to beautify your home. Check out our site for updates as to when we will be opening, and later, this blog will showcase our own gardening hints to make your landscape both decorative and enjoyable.
