You have more choices of places to buy your tree these days in our neighborhood. When you choose to buy from Greensgrow, you are investing in the long term health of our urban farm and habitat, you are investing in our youth farm education, you are investing in the legacy of this meaningful greenspace.
The holidays kick off at Greensgrow Farms & Greensgrow West on November 30th! This year we’re bringing you low spray Pennsylvania grown Fraser Firs, Turkish Firs, Nordmann Firs and Douglas Firs grown on a small family farm in Carbon County, Pa. We’ll have wreaths, garlands, decorative greens and branches, pine cones and more. Compare the Christmas tree varieties.
You can pick out mini evergreens or herb trees, cacti, terrariums, airplants, orchids and houseplants. Now is the time to get your paperwhite and amaryllis bulbs. Also, Christmas cactus, kalanchoe, and cyclamen are frequent winter visitors. You’ll find fertilizers, containers, gardening gear, chemical-free pest deterrents, and much more.
Around Thanksgiving we put all our perennials and shrubs away till spring. Winter means it is time for miniature evergreens, perfect for windowboxes. It also means that it’s time for holiday decorating with dwarf Alberta spruces, tiny (but not for long) Blue spruces, hollies, boxwoods and junipers – some in topiary shapes. We’ll also have wreaths, garland, swags and cut Christmas trees.
