Winter Hours, Merchandise & Planning
Starting January 5th, our winter hours are 9-4 Tuesday-Saturday and we are closed on Sunday and Monday. Bird seed, firewood, mulches and chemicals are all still available to buy while the weather is cold. It's also a great time to plan for spring projects and put in any special orders for plant material so it comes in on our spring deliveries.
Christmas Tree Disposal
If you bought a natural tree this year, you can check with your local trash collection/yard waste company to see proper ways of disposing of the tree when that time comes. You can also consult with the MDC to use the trees to help with fish spawning.
Fluff Up Or Add To Mulch Beds
Since we had such a mild December, a nice day in January is a good time to mulch your perennial bed to keep it in dormancy.
Our native plant selection can provide you with naturally local, low-maintenance greenery.
Best Garden Center - Riverfront Times 2013
"There's something nostalgic about visiting Hartke Nursery. Perhaps it's the red wagons Hartke uses as shopping carts; those antique Radio Flyers really take you back. Or maybe it's the old farmhouse that Hartke uses as its office. Whatever it is, this sprawling Olivette Nursery almost seems too good to be true."- Riverfront Times
