Christmas Past and Present Opening Night

“Christmas Past and Present” Shop Story Opening Reception featuring Holiday Collection 2017.

This is a favorite time of year. Shop is filled with fresh cut greens and we get to spend time together slogging trees and making cheer.

The Christmas Tree Forest opens benefitting the Dixon Area Garden Club. Join us for the Shop Story opening of “Christmas Past”.

Shop stories switch like art shows. Unfold like good books. Pop with project parties. And happen with community events.

    We love gardening, no two ways around it.

    We love gardeners.

    They’re the coolest, most open-minded people around.

    We feel lucky doing a job we love.

    We opened this garden center

    because it’s a fantastic way

    to meet like-minded people,

    growing plants, friendship and community,

    one seed at a time.
