January 2021 Newsletter
Hope and faith flower from the cheerful seeds of the old year
to the sprouting garden of the new year's dawn.
~Terri Guillemets, "Annuals," 2004
Whew, that was tough.
We did it. 2020 was a difficult year, but together we made it through. At times we had to be creative and adjust how we did business. Thanks to our wonderful, and patient, customers and staff Jackson Florist & Garden Center came through a trying year. We do not know what this year may hold, but we do know that together we will make it through and grow.
We wish you a year filled with peace, love,
verdant leaves, and bountiful blooms.
New Year Means New Plants
New tropical house plants and orchids are regularly arriving in the store. We have everything you need for your plant family members: pots, soils, fertilizers, and information. If you are looking for something unique, stop by the store. We are more than happy to order specific plants for customers. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the plants' availability, but we will do all we can to get that special plant.
Caring for house plants during winter's colder temperatures and darker skies requires slightly different actions than at other times of the year. Many plants are not actively growing during the winter and thus do not require fertilization. Just as humans are affected by drier winter weather, so are plants. Creating a more humid environment around your plants significantly helps the plants thrive during the winter. You can use humidifiers or simply place bowls of water near plants. For more information on caring for tropical house plants during the winter please read our blog post.
Love is in the air.
Valentine's Day is Sunday, February 14th. Yes, 2021 just started, but February will be here before we know it. And no one wants to wake up on February 15th and realize they forget to send flowers. Call or visit the store or visit us online to place your order.
"Anyone who thinks gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year; for gardening begins in January with the dream."
