Uncovering the nursery now that winter’s over.
The Roadside Pant Wagon has caused some confusion. It was first started in 2011 so my neighbors could buy BBP plants without coming up to the nursery. There are annuals, perennials, vegetables and seasonal plants. It has since become a destination for many homeowners from all over and that’s fantastic!
For you professional gardeners, if you need just a handful of those plants (1-5 pots) by all means take from there and pay in drop-box, cash or check, no receipt. Restocking the RPW is hard. All plants on it are also up in the nursery at the same price with a receipt.
So please buy what you can up here at the nursery yard. Thanks!
New Rules for returning plastic…the backlog continues. I’m having a big problem with where this plastic waste goes. Last fall, we neatly filled a 30 yard recycling roll-off dumpster with only #6 plastic (carriers, flats, plug trays, etc.) and they (unnamed) carted it away to the landfill! So until the process changes we can only take back #2 pots. The thin pots, trays, etc. should go back to the plant supplier you purchased them from and they can … 1) throw them in the landfill, 2) reuse what they can, #3 collect them in hopes that in the future there is a better solution. – JB
