SuperSecretSales and Pop-Up Sales

Crystal Lake Garden Shop

Here at Crystal Lake, we often offer SuperSecretSales

SuperSecretSales are not really secret, we tell everyone, it’s just a catchy phrase we use. The sales are pretty catchy too and each one is a great value.  They are the best and the nicest of our plants and we want to share these with you because they are fabulous! We post these sales all over social media and our website, and we tell every person we come in contact with about them! SuperSecretSales are great because we know when they will happen and can tell everybody.

Can't wait for Spring 2016!
Love this color.

Today we made up a new sale category, The Pop-Up Sale!

Pop-Sales are a spur of the moment kind of sale, not planned, so they can happen at any time. Generally, we have all our ducks in a row, we keep ourselves on track and we have all our sales and events planned well in advance. But then life happens and we realize we have some really great stuff that needs a home. A Pop-Up Sale could be anything! It may be offered at a discounted price or it might be a Buy One Get One offer. You never know.  We probably won’t post them on Facebook because we’re just running around crazy and realize there is something wonderful that you might like. So we’ll gather the plants together, throw up a sign and if you happen to stop by, you’ll  run into a Pop-Up Sale!

National Pollinator Week – Your Call to Action!

National Pollinator Week!

Let’s take time during National Pollinator Week (or any week) to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what we can do to help and protect them.

National Pollinator Week
Pollinators work for us and we can help them
Pollinators are important to us and we can do a lot to help and support them. Bees, butterflies, birds and insects are critical to an ecosystem. Pollination is a vital stage in the life cycle of our plants and necessary for healthy and productive ecosystems. We can help pollinators by planting gardens with pollinator friendly plants and thus creating desirable habitats for our friends. Plant for continuous bloom throughout the growing season from spring to fall. Select a site that has at least partial sun, and can provide water. Allow material from dead branches and logs remain as nesting sites or consider installing wood nesting blocks for wood-nesting natives.

Sun loving color all season!

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.”

When Keats penned that, he may not have had plants in mind. But it has been scientifically proven that plants make you happier.

(What science and where? I don’t know, but it sounds plausible.)

Anyway, even though there may be a few showers in our future, hanging a plant in your garden is a great way to brighten spaces, lift a mood and make a plant happy!
