It’s been a few months since we’ve posted anything new on here and a lot has happened.
We have been hard at work getting the nursery to an all new level of beauty. We have added walkways and done quite a bit of landscaping. We’ve built a wedding area and held our very first wedding out at the property which was lovely.
Those are just a few photos to keep you guys in the loop, you can expect a much more detailed video in the not-too-distant-future about all that we’ve been doing so far this year.
We also have an event next month, our usual Spring Festival (only two days this year) and we are excited to share all the beautiful things that we’ve added to the nursery.
The event page on Facebook has more details about what we have planned for our event so click here to visit that page and RSVP.
There will be free beer and mead, (as always), as well as demos with Mike Rogers on Friday (the 12th), and a workshop with Ed Trout on Saturday the 13th. It’s the same weekend as Mother’s Day so come to shop, we will have 20% off all stock, soil, tools, non-specimen trees, and bonsai pots.
I just wanted to take the time today to update all of you who are looking for great deals during the holiday season. We have a special going right now on our website where every order of $100 comes with a gift certificate for $20. You can either save the certificate for your next order or you can give it to someone else for the holidays. The extra bonus is that this deal is stackable: if you spend $200, you’ll receive two separate certificates for $20 each.
In the coming weeks we will be updating the website with more trees so keep checking back, this holiday special runs until December 31st.
We also recently made a video for a contest that we held last month on Facebook, so check the video out below:
This contest was a lot of fun and we hope to have another one soon, so stick around if you’d be interested in participating. All of the entries that we received were fantastic and we had the opportunity to work with some excellent judges and were able to reward the winners with some really great prizes.
And, as a reminder, we also recently started a page on Patreon to help us to bring all of you more quality content as well as future contests for all of our fellow bonsai enthusiasts. If you’d like to check it out you can do so by clicking here.
I took some time today to go around the nursery in search of things to photograph. I was very lucky to catch the deer and she let me get incredibly close to her before running off into the woods.
Our beginner class for the month is tomorrow morning and next week we have the privilege of hosting Sean Smith. In the morning he will be teaching a class on hut carving and then in the afternoon he will be doing a “bring your own tree” workshop.
If you are interested in either class (it may be took late for this beginner class but we will have another one next month) you can read more on our website here.
Also worth mentioning, we have an awesome sale on the website on all of our pots. Jason has been bringing in a lot of awesome new inventory so check them out here. They are all 25% off until the end of the month.
And last of all, we have been doing our best to keep updating our YouTube channel with new content. Currently we are in the middle of a series on how to care for your bonsai trees in a hotter climate like Florida. Most information that we have seen is geared towards other parts of the country so Jason wanted to take the opportunity to explain a few things that are done differently in the South. Check it out. Our next video in the series will be up on Monday morning.
This week has been great, things have been flying off of the benches at the farm. We have had so many wonderful customers, old and new, coming to check out our selection.
It has been awesome to see so many people who are enthusiastic about the sale and about all of the awesome trees that Jason has put his time and energy into. Some of my favorite items have found new homes with great people.
If you haven’t had a chance to come by yet, the sale doesn’t end until the end of the day Saturday. If you aren’t in the area for whatever reason this sale is also available for our items online. And don’t worry if you aren’t sure what to get, our gift certificates are also available at 25% off which is a great way to keep the discount going on for as long as you need. They also make excellent gifts so shop now!
