Winter is for the Birds

Posted on by

 

 

Winter may be one of the best times for bird-watching. With the foliage down, it is easier to see and enjoy your backyard residents.

It’s almost time to call it a wrap on 2020, and as we look forward to a new year, I wanted to talk about resolutions. Not your personal plans to eat better or exercise more in 2021, but your ambitions for your garden next year. Now is the perfect time to think about what you […]

Any regular reader of this column knows that I have love in my heart for family-run businesses. Warner’s itself is now on its fourth generation of family members working at the nursery with my three sons helping out when school’s not in session.

One of the things we’ve really missed this year because of COVID-19 is being able to have our club for kids. Usually, the “Mud Club” would meet every couple of weeks with fun, hands-on lessons about how plants work. It was good for us (there’s nothing like the unabashed enthusiasm of kids playing in the […]

Mark your calendars – on Friday, September 18, you could help save a life. That’s when Warner’s Nursery will be having its second blood drive of the year in the safe and super comfy Vitalant bus in our parking lot. It’s unusual because we typically just have one annual drive around the July 4th holiday. […]
