Brothers Norm, Joe, and Jim Longacre announced this past fall that they were ready to retire. So they sold the business to Gardener’s Supply Company
, an employee-owned company based in Burlington. The official hand-off took place on January 3rd. The brothers still own the Rt. 4 property in Lebanon and are leasing it to GSC.
After a remodel, the revamped nursery center opened on February 1st. The location offers everything you’ll need for the upcoming season. If you’re a beginning gardener, you’ll need more than just a shovel. No matter what your garden’s size, here are the must-have tools you can find at Gardener’s to get the job done:
- A trowel: A small, hand-held shovel great for putting new plants into the ground and digging up small areas.
- .A hose: To keep those new plants hydrated
- Gardening gloves: To protect your hands from dirt, thorns, blisters, and other garden hazards.
Gardener’s Supply Company offers a variety of seminars and workshops to help you become a better gardener. (See the complete list on their website, www.gardeners.com
, or on their Facebook page.) The website also has a lot of information that can help you find answers to your gardening questions.
