Flowering Easter Basket

photo 3Time for some celebratory flowering Easter color.  The garden center is stocked full of these big bold flowers grown to perfection.  The key to success? Abundant flowers!  Everything must mesh, intertwine and spill; the more colors, the merrier. We’ve grown 200 of these festive baskets that are the epitome of happiness. So nice they make a perfect gift, but only available until Easter Sunday.
