E-Newsletter: November 2009

The Phoenix Perennials E-Newsletter
November 2009

Hello from Phoenix Perennials!

I always say it only rains once in November - from November 1st straight through until November 30th! It's time to hunker down, take a break, get cozy, savour your garden successes and plan for more next year.

The nursery is now closed for winter. We re-open on March 5th, 2010 with our Hellebore Hurrah! We'll be holding it one week later than usual so that we don't compete with the closing ceremonies of the Olympics. I'm sure VANOC and the International Olympic Committee would be none too pleased if everyone was at the Hellebore Hurrah! rather than their little event downtown!

This will be a short e-newsletter for this month. I'm recently back from a trip to Oregon where I was searching for and planning all kinds of horticultural excitement for you for next year! It's going to be good! In the December e-newsletter we'll bring you our Year End Round Up and a little Sneak Peak for 2010.

Until then the Christmas season is approaching and we have lovely gift certificates and t-shirts available for that gardener in your life. Or, if you're the most important gardener in your life, forward this email to your loved ones as a hint to what you want Santa to bring you for Christmas! See below for more information including suggested gift packages.

Happy Holidays!

Cheers, Gary and the Phoenicians

Each Design Service gift certificate will be accompanied by information on the service.

3. A Phoenix Perennials Collectible T-Shirt: This high quality tee is black with embroidered text in lavender that says "I can only have one husband but as many flowers as I want!" The cost is $19.99 (which includes shipping though taxes are additional).

Sizes available while quantities last. For more information visit our T-Shirt page.
