Closed due to flooding

The water is too deep to chance coming in to the greenhouses. Before long, we will be boating in and out if we need to leave. As of Monday April 25 we will close down until the roads are navigable again.

I want to thank all of you who came to shop both Saturday and Sunday even though the weather wasn’t the greatest. Especially those of you who braved the water across the road on Sunday. I certainly appreciate all your care and concern for my business. It is a devastating event to have to close for 1 or 2 weeks during what should be the peak of my season. It is hard to see all of the hope and hard work my employees and I put into raising these plants be jeopardized by something we can’t control. Hopefully the water will go down quicker than expected and we can get back to business as usual.

The other sad thing is that our “reception” for Sheila on her birthday will have to be postponed. We were really looking forward to honoring her 20 years of work at Hasting Plants. I am hoping to have it rescheduled on May4, but I’m afraid that we might not be open again by then. I will post it here when we get it figured out.

Keep all the people affected by the flood in your prayers!

    Exactly what Jennifer said!

    In the meantime, I’ll hope to come out over Mother’s Day weekend….maybe all will be well by then!
