Bauer’s Busy Bees, Spring series
The 2019 Spring series has already produced a lot of happy kids!  So far this season kids have enjoyed, ‘Let the Sun Shine’ and planted sunflower seeds, reading ‘Planting a Rainbow’ and planting their very own Rainbow Garden, and even created their own greenhouse and planting veggie seeds.  Join us TODAY, May 4, where kids will create an Earthworm Hotel!  Check out the rest of the Busy Bees workshop themes here.

Want to Know More about Perennials?
Join Kari for Bauer’s Walk & Talk perennial time THIS MORNING!  This bi-weekly event will take place every 1st and 3rd Saturday at 10am.  Bring your questions & coffee, grab a friend, and join us to learn more about new perennial varieties, proven gold medalists, natives, and more.  No RSVP needed.  This is a free event.

It’s all about Mint this Weekend!
No matter if you’re a horse lover or not, the Kentucky Derby is always a fun event to watch.  For the same reason some people watch the Super Bowl {the commercials}, many of us watch horses circle a track this weekend to check out the fun hats and drink Mint Juleps.  And let’s taco about Cinco de Mayo this Sunday; Mexican rice, refried beans, burritos, and Mojitos… yum!  Don’t worry, Bauer’s has enough mint for both occasions; spearmint and peppermint, of course, along with specialty mints like, orange mint, apple mint, chocolate mint, and pineapple mint are all available.  We also have 30+ other varieties of tasty herbs for all your culinary delights on-hand too.  

Pond Plants are Here.  I repeat, Pond Plants are Here!
You know warmer temps are ahead when Bauer’s pond plants arrive.  Pond plants began arriving earlier this week and they’re on display and available for purchase.  Bauer’s has the largest selection of pond plants in the area!  If you’re already a pond person, you know how quickly these plants go, so stop in this weekend for the best selection.  {At this time, it is unknown if we’ll be placing another order this season.}  If you have questions on the varieties of pond plants we offer, please give a call 507.895.4583 and one of helpful staff can assist you.

In the Blog…
Most people are familiar with te concepts behind composting; not only does it allow us to produce less landfill waste but it’s also a way to use out organic household scraps to enrich our garden soil.  Despite the benefits, many folks are hesitant to start, generally this is due to a concern that compost bins will add more odors or tasks to our to-do lists.  Luckily, compost doesn’t have to be a pain and the benefits of getting started far outweigh the minimal impact on your schedule…. and nose!  Read the full blog here.
