Nino’s Outdoor Floral Sale Begins May 5th!

May 3, 2016

Well, it’s that time of year again. If our weather is cooperating, and let’s hope it is, the difficult task of choosing the perfect selection of beautiful annuals is upon us. Luckily, you have our staff here at Nino’s to help you with this fun, satisfying project that you can start enjoying now and keep enjoying for the entire summer. In fact, our flats will be arriving later this week, with more coming weekly as our weather gets warmer.

Of course, it isn’t just the warmer weather that gets us all excited about May arriving. May means that Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and I know each of us has at least one lovely lady or two on our list who would truly appreciate a beautiful arrangement of fragrant flowers or a new flowering plant for a treasured garden. Flowers represent beauty, fertility, life, love, and purity—all things we recognize in the mothers in our lives. Whether it’s for your mom, grandmother, auntie, sister, employee, or even a special neighbor, Nino’s has the right flowers to help you mark such a special day and show how much you care.

The best news is that our Outdoor Floral Sale starts on Thursday, May 5th and will last until the end of June. Pick up the flowers you need not only for Mother’s Day but also for the entire season. 

Here are a few things to consider when making your selections: 

One of the first things to determine is how much sun the desired flower beds will receive. If your area receives full sun, I would recommend Petunias, Snapdragons, Marigolds, Periwinkle, Dianthus and the ever-popular Geraniums. If your area is shady or only partly sunny, I would suggest Begonias and New Guinea Impatiens. Usually, the most popular annual would be Impatiens, but not this year! Read on to find out why, but yes, it’s time to switch things up a bit.

One Tough Decision 

Due to Downy Mildew, we at Nino’s have made the tough decision NOT to carry Impatiens for the 2016 season. Knowing what we know about Downy Mildew, we felt it would be misleading to our loyal customers to offer a flower that would most certainly be infected, if not dead, 6 to 8 weeks after purchase. We always want to offer the highest quality to every customer, and our florals are no exception to this rule.

This year, we’re also offering Scott’s Premium Top Soil and Scott’s Premium Manure & Humus, both for $1.99. And of course, we have your “Made in Michigan” mulch in red, brown, black and cedar. We will have Cypress mulch from Florida.

Stop in this week to take advantage of our Outdoor Floral Sale! We can’t wait to see you there!
