Welcome to 2010! As we start another new year, we’re busy with some new projects at Vander Giessen Nursery that will benefit you! Here’s a quick look at what’s been happening here since Christmas–

First, we’ve recently removed two of the old benches in our “geranium greenhouse.” For those of you who shop here during the spring, you know that it can be a tight fit to walk the narrow aisles between the benches–especially when the flowers hang over the sides! Well, we’re going to fix that problem! This year, we’re removing two benches and replacing them with one larger bench and a wider aisle.

Another more major project we’re in the middle of is building an entirely new greenhouse! With some shuffling of storage and display of shrubs and trees, we were able to free up the entire sawdust lot across the street for the construction of a new growing facility. While the new greenhouse will not be open to the public, it will allow us to grow many more beautiful Lynden Baskets, bedding plants, and perennials!

These are just a couple of the new projects underway here at Vander Giessen Nursery. If you’d like to take a look at what’s happening for yourself, feel free to stop by. We’re open Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30! For more information, visit our website.
