Happy Spring to you all! We will be opening for business on April 1st!
During these troubled times, it’s comforting to know that the world still spins, that the seasons change, and that the plants continue to grow. Our greenhouses are filled with new life, and vibrant color.
To address all of our most pressing concerns with our current situation as a nation, Ossipee Trail will be following CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone. Some of the changes that you will see are that we will not be using the store as our checkout, and have moved that operation to the outside gazebo. Our hours will be changed, at least in the early part of the season, and we will be closed on Sundays. We will be following social distancing guidelines, limiting the number of people allowed into a greenhouse at one time, and have installed a handwashing station outside one of our greenhouses for your convenience. Unfortunately, we have cancelled our Spring open house, for obvious reasons, but we will miss it (even Spark’s Arks animals are self quarantining during this time!)
It is early in the season, we know, and outdoor planting really does not begin until after Mother’s day, but we also know that our customers enjoy wandering through the greenhouses, planning, and just breathing in the fresh smell of growth and life. We have plenty of inventory, annuals, perennials, hanging baskets and nursery stock, with more arriving weekly. We encourage you to get started with your orders for compost, soil and mulch. You are welcome to drive in, or, as usual, we will deliver. Our vegetable seedlings are growing and will be ready for you at the end of the month.
Please understand that your health and comfort are most important to us, and we ask that you do not hesitate to speak with us if you have any concerns or need any assistance. If everyone has to be stuck at home, there’s no better time to beautify the world around you! Fresh air, and plants are a cure for isolation, boredom and help heal the earth as well! We look forward to seeing you all soon!
