April 28th event celebrates roots of locally-owned, third generation garden center

Coal Valley, IL – As the plants and flowers are coming into bloom, the Corn Crib Nursery welcomes the public for a 40th Anniversary “Garden Party” on Saturday, April 28th to celebrate its place as a perennial, locally-owned business.

 

The free events take place from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the nursery (6924 Route 150 – Hwy. 150, Coal Valley, IL). Besides the locally-grown, on-site selection in the green houses, the day salutes Corn Crib Nursery’s knowledgeable staff, its full line of landscape design services as well as new products that complement your home and tempt your taste buds.

 

At 10:00 am, “Primo ® Paul” will begin offering samples cooked on the Primo ® Grills and Smokers that the Corn Crib Nursery added to the lineup this year. Also at 10:00 am, the Crib’s Joe Sobaski will host a presentation on a recent trend – Vertical Gardening – including how to build your own “Succulent Fence.”

 

Corn Crib Nursery is also proud to be a certified Best Proven Winner ® consultant. At 11:00 am, Susie Fesler-Vaughn teaches attendees how to build their own Best Proven Winner container and will give one away as a door prize. At 2:00 PM, Bob Towler of the Rock Island Horticulture Club caps off the activities with a Q&A session.

 

Throughout the day, there will be door prizes, complementary anniversary cake as well as samples of the Corn Crib Nursery’s new in-house line of jams and preserves. It’s a day worthy of a business built on personal attention and premier products. Together, it makes the Corn Crib Nursery a destination experience.

 

“Our business has certainly evolved during the last forty years,” said Duane White, Owner/Partner of Corn Crib Nursery. “The ‘Garden Party’ will be a chance to celebrate working with the three things I love most – people, plants and family.”

 

The Corn Crib Nursery began in 1972 as a seasonal, open-air market and sod farm. In 1980, the business constructed its first permanent buildings and became a year-round, full service garden center including design services. Locally owned during its 40-year history, it now welcomes a third generation from the White family to the staff. The nursery is open Monday through Saturday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday.
