Everyone here at Pahl’s Market wants to wish you and your MOM a very special Mother’s Day. We are a fifth generation farm celebrating 30 years of business at our market location in Apple Valley. We know the importance of having a family friendly business here for you.
In honor of Mothers, we have a lovely selection of pink pottery. For each piece of pink pottery sold, we donate 30% to Piper Breast Center at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. We help those dealing with breast cancer each time we see a beautiful pink planter leave our store.
This month we are excited to tell you about a couple of lovely lilacs. “Bloomerang” is a great purple variety that will re-bloom for you in our zone 4 climate. It is only 4 to 5 feet wide and grows no more than 5 feet tall so is very well mannered in smaller spaces. This lilac will also do well in zone 3 so if you have a cabin up north it would work well there also.
Our second featured lilac is called “Tinkerbelle.” This charmer is pink and is 4 to 5 feet wide and grows 5 to 6 feet tall. Also hardy to zone 3, it is very reliable both here and further north.
Speaking of Tinkerbelle—we have a wonderful fairy garden to share with you in our greenhouse. We call it, “Gardening with Imagination!” Stop in and see what we have created. We think you will be inspired to make your very own creation. We have stocked up on all kinds of fairies, accent pieces and miniature plants for you to choose from while you let your imagination soar.
As May brings out the gardening excitement in all of us, we look forward to greeting you again. Our knowledgeable staff is ready to help with all your gardening needs. Give the gift of a garden in a basket. Mothers everywhere are hoping for a little extra love on their special day. Pahl’s Market can provide beautiful flowers that will bring a smile to her face all summer long.
Don’t forget….Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th. Pick from our endless selection of annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, potted plants, roses, pottery and much, much more. If your MOM is hard to buy for, we have a simple solution with a Pahl’s Gift Card. See you at Pahl’s!
