Current Events

Looking out the windows of the greenhouse, the seasonal change is VERY evident.  It was swift and thorough once it arrived.  The poinsettias continue to both change color and grow in size, which is exactly what they should be doing right now.  The holiday season has much to do with memories and they always make me think of cool days putting foil on poinsettia pots and sleeving them up to go out on deliveries.  Soon enough, it will be time to do that again.  We have also begun to receive our fresh evergreens and the holiday season will be in full swing, soon enough.

And, if we needed a reminder of the seasonal nature of our business, we have planted our geranium stock plants and will begin to take cuttings in mid to late November.  We start slowly, but by the end of December, the volume will increase until we are finished sometime in March.  It is a comforting reminder of the upcoming seasons and the wheel keeps turning.

We are now open for the season and our poinsettias are in the final stages of their annual color change.  Additionally, the fragrance of fresh evergreens is in the air with plenty of roping and wreaths, as well as gorgeous porch pots.  You can choose one of our pre-made arrangements, but you will also find all of the ingredients for you to make your own.

We will host our Artisan Christmas Market on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16 from 9 am until 4:30 pm, both days..  When you visit SHADY HILL on those two days, you will be treated to eight artists and makers from the area who will be showing their wares.  It is such a good time to pick up a unique, one of a kind item for someone on your holiday list or even something for your own home.  Additionally, you can enjoy a sweet treat from Cocoa Been Fine Desserts of Geneva.  And, they will all be set up among the poinsettias of SHADY HILL.  These are the vendors you can expect to find:

-Amazed By You Photography       -Allure Candle Co.

-Blackdog Creations                       -The Crystal Collective

-Get Felted Up                                -Harvest Moon Designs

-Re-Purposefully Unique                -Rock Solid Sayings

  We hope that you will find time to stop by on one of these days.  It is always a fun couple of days in a unique and beautiful setting.

  Give us a call or drop us a line if you have any questions or need any additional information.

  See you soon.
