Garden Crossings Welcomes P. Allen Smith National Garden Expert and Author

Zeeland, MI—Meet national gardening expert and author P. Allen Smith during  the Garden Crossings 7th Annual Grand Opening weekend April 13-14. Garden  Crossings, a retail and mail-order nursery in Zeeland, Michigan specializing  in Proven Winners® annuals and shrubs, welcomes customers for a weekend of  fun, friends, and the kickoff of spring 2012 gardening. During the Friday  meet and greet with P. Allen, local radio station JQ99 will broadcast live  from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Garden Crossings will provide snacks, discounts, and  to sign up for JQ99 Cash Cow Drawing. Customers are invited back on Saturday  to browse among designed and planted containers and see what’s new for  2012.

Gardeners anxious to get their hands in the dirt before the Grand Opening  have several other chances to take advantage of the warmth and wonders inside  Garden Crossings’ 35,000 square feet of indoor growing space. On Saturday,  March 24, customers can enjoy designing and planting their own containers  during the Container Gardening Open House. Adults and children will each have  their own areas in which to design and plant. Greenhouse tours will be  available. Garden Crossings will grow the planted baskets for four to six  weeks, and customers can pick them up when it is warm enough to enjoy them  outside.

While customers around the entire United States order from the Garden  Crossings online catalog, West Michigan-area gardeners can take advantage of  special tours and events on-site at the Garden Center. Throughout the spring,  Garden Crossings also hosts private events for groups looking for a fun and  informative outing. Please call Heidi at 616-875-6355 to schedule your tour,  container garden workshop, or other special garden event.
