Today was the Annual Greens Sale by The Country Gardeners at Tyler Arboretum. Founded in 1949, The Country Gardeners is an organization based in Lima, PA, with a mission to stimulate the love of gardening, help protect native species, and assist in good civic planting. Each year, The Country Gardeners holds a one-day sale of fresh wreaths, pine roping, poinsettias, centerpieces, natural ornaments, and more. The holiday greens can be pre-ordered or purchased on site, but a warning to those that think they might come at any time during the 9:30AM to 1:30PM sale time – these beautiful items go fast!
In the past, I had purchased my items on site, but this year, I decided to pre-order a wreath for my front door. The description for the wreath read: “full, fragrant noble fir, decorated with pine cones, and a red velvet bow.” I was not disappointed with my purchase!
I unfortunately was not able to stay for the second activity being held at Tyler today, the Woodland Winter Wonderland event. But I look forward to the next event I have signed up for, the Natural Ornaments workshop taking place next Saturday at Tyler.
