A Note from Scott and Marsha
November 24, 2021
We hope this finds you enjoying today off with family and friends, maybe sitting around the table laughing over cider or playing games while you wait for a beautiful dinner. This is our first year of not hosting Thanksgiving. We have been invited to our daughter's house. My favorite statement of the week was, "Mom, I have renewed respect for the amount of work this has required." My work here is done.  


The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.
Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway~
Thanksgiving comes again! -- Old Rhyme

Pass the hosting baton. And the stuffing. Wait. Is it stuffing or dressing? Either way, how about Friday you bring your stuffed-self to FGS for all things red and green? We have plenty of holiday cheer just for you and the perfect festive trees and wreaths. Don't forget the poinsettias! They are simply magical!

Simply beautiful and stunning, it’s the one plant that always comes to mind this holiday season! You may know them for their bright red leaves but they are full of surprises and come in a variety of colors -- whites, pinks, variegated, reds, rosettes. And despite their holiday connotation, they are tropical plants and require ample water and warmth. Bring cheer to any room this holiday season and pick up yours today!
The sheer diversity, beauty, and all-season appeal of witch hazels have put them near the top of our list. Possessing fantastic fall attributes, fragrant flowers bloom from October through December. A great shrub to plant as an understory or for shrub borders. They are also tolerant to a variety of conditions making them an added bonus!
Prized for their display of natural color and fresh scent of Christmas, wreaths are a must have during the holidays! We have a variety of wreaths including Fraser Fir, Boxwood, and a mixture of Fraser Fir and Boxwood. Decorate wreaths with natural or store-bought accents, or simply enjoy the green boughs as they grace your doors, windows or walls. We also have bows you can purchase. Fresh wreaths are the perfect accent for your holiday decorating!

We all know they’re important for the environment, but there’s a lot more to bees than meets the eye. By the end of the class, you’ll know about bee “dances”, secret clubs where queens go to get lucky, what challenges bees face, and how you can help. They’ll also provide craft beer brewed with their honey!
