Seriously, you guys, winter seemed like it was longer than ever. We finally have semi-consistent sunshine and warmer temps on the forecast! With the arrival of spring comes the time to plant, too. Whether you have a tiny window box, raised beds, or an entire yard, you’re probably looking for a good place to pick up some flowers.
Grant's Farm & Greenhouses in Williamsburg has a plethora of plants to pick from, and they're having an open house on April 27th and 28th. There, you can get 20% off everything—the only time you can get a discount on some of these items all year long.
Grant’s Farm and Greenhouse has been family-owned for nearly 40 years. You can find their plants at three locations: the farm in Williamsburg, and two garden centers in both Batavia and Milford. Grant’s sells flowers (both perennial and annual), vegetable plants, fruit trees and bushes, herbs, shrubs, and a whole lot more. All plants are transplanted by hand and grown in over 100,000 square feet of greenhouses.
You'll find the following on the farm:
- Hundreds of varieties of annual and perennial plants
- Rose bushes, including the ever-popular knockout roses and scented varieties
- A variety of succulents
- 100 types of tomatoes, including classics and heirlooms like Sun Sugar, which brings people to the farm from as far away as Dayton
- Raspberry bushes, grapes, tree fruits, peaches, apples, cherry and pear trees
- A wide variety of rare heirloom vegetables with a new section of Asian vegetables that includes Chinese cabbage, Thai basil, and three different kinds of bok choi
- 40 kinds of hot and sweet peppers, and hundreds of varieties of herbs
- Hundreds of different hanging baskets in multiple sizes
By throwing a huge party for their family and customers, Grant's celebrates the coming of spring in a way no other greenhouse does. Besides 20% off, the open house features a free gift for the first 25 people who spend $50; drawings for gift baskets every hour; and a giant grill-out with hot dogs, pulled pork, and other delicious picnic food (including 100 dozen Holtman’s donuts).
And if you need some help choosing what to plant in your own window box or yard, experts will be on hand to answer any and all questions you may have.
