It’s Christmastime – and Timing is Everything!
Christmas is a few weeks away, and like me no doubt you’ve been seeing Christmas displays and hearing carols in the stores for more than a month already!
Here at Evergreen Nursery we’ve been planning for Christmas for a while - not because we want to rush the season, but because some things shouldn’t be rushed. In early fall we start carefully hand picking and tagging our Christmas trees, which we purchase from family farmers in the Pacific Northwest we’ve known for years. We begin growing our large crop of beautiful Cyclamen and we start shopping for the best selection of Poinsettias from local growers in order to have vibrant holiday plants available here at the nursery at just the right time.
Our Christmas trees arrive at just the right time, too. Trees are cut right before they’re loaded onto trucks to make their way to our nurseries and tree lot, so our customers never have to worry they’ve been sitting around on loading docks out of water for weeks. As soon as our trees arrive, they’re given a fresh cut and stored in water, so you can trust they’ll be fresh for you when you shop.
Be sure to check out our flip book this month to see what varieties of Christmas trees and plants we have to offer – and make sure to flip to the end for a special offer for our very special customers. Merry Christmas to all, and we hope to see you soon right here at Evergreen Nursery!
