Spoil your father
Mothers day has come and gone. Hopefully you took full advantage of some great strawberry seedlings we had available. If you missed out we still have just a few available. Do not forget about the fathers who spend time digging the garden and moving around the soils just to make sure that the plants are placed where you need them.
If you do not know what to get for this fathers day, then spoil him with a gift card from Just Berry Plants. You can decide on any value and allow your dad to choose some plants of his own when redeeming the gift card.
Whatever the occasion, whatever the season. Come past the nursery and start working on those gardens. It is always better to taste the real fruit you can grow in your own garden.
