The recent rainy and cooler weather has got many gardeners flustered by not being able to get things planted on their usual schedule. We know from talking with many of our customers that there is concern and frustration with the lingering spate of unfavorable conditions. Local gardeners have had to scramble to plant between rain showers and cold spells! Not to worry, though, because there still is plenty of time to get both flower and vegetable gardens planted and growing. Yes, the large amounts of rainfall are discouraging and slow the process of properly working the soil before planting, but we certainly are due for some long stretches of drier weather in the coming days to make that task easier. And as planting conditions improve, be assured that we still have a large inventory of flowering annuals, vegetables, perennials, shrubs and trees to enrich lives and make your world a beautiful place. We even have a large supply of vigorous and beautiful roses in our greenhouses, stocked up in advance for a very special upcoming event. Enjoy roses? Like wine? We’ve paired them up for a very enjoyable Saturday…


Saturday, June 13th from 11AM to 2PM!
Join us for our first-ever Wine & Roses Festival on Saturday, June 13th from 11AM to 2PM. It is a celebration of two of our favorite things in life… wine and roses! We’re sure that many of you share those feelings. For a mere $5.00 sampling fee, you can partake of a nice selection of locally-produced wines and enjoy delicious culinary offerings provided by Kelly’s Bakery and Café in Downtown Bloomington, while you look through our inventory of beautiful and hardy roses. During this special event only, all roses are being offered at a 10% discount from the regular retail price, so be sure to take advantage of purchasing some fantastic flowering plants and save some money, too. A couple of free seminars will also be featured during the day, including:

• “Basic Rose Care” at 11AM
• “Choosing the Right Rose” at Noon
• “Basic Rose Care” (Repeat) at 1PM

So, come on out to Niepagens to sample some fine wine, nosh on great food, maybe learn a few things and shop for spectacular roses during our Wine & Roses Festival. What a great way to spend a Saturday!
