If you saw a heat wave....
....would you wave back?

Dear friends and customers, 


This quip from writer Steven Wright, reminds us that even in serious times, a little humor can be uplifting. Not much in the weather report to make us think the short-run forecast will be much different than July--and that heat was pretty serious.  Nonetheless, August begins the slow-down in plant growth, and that means Fall season will be around the corner.

Problems are only opportunities in work clothes. 
Henry J. Kaiser

While everyone is busy keeping plants watered, there are still some planting opportunities in August.  We have some great bargains we'd like to extend to you in this month- plants that move easily, take the heat and are ready to go.

We're extending the Five Plus Specials through August also.  You can get the five plus price by purchasing any five plants on the flier.  

Many more kinds of plants in container ready to go too, just give us a call and we'll have them on their way to you!  We are ready and on call, Mary Tree and Joe 


If you are beating the heat inside on your computer, check out our Facebook page too.  If you "LIKE" the Glacier Oaks Nursery page, you will receive a link for a discount coupon.
