For those that prefer to give a Mother's Day gift of flowers that will last for more than a few days, I suggest a visit to Gasko's Family Farm & Greenhouses in Monroe, NJ. I'm not sure how long this garden center has been around, but I can't believe that I never knew about it before now!
This place is huge! Several greenhouses that currently house "annuals", together with perennials and shrubery outside.
Prices are fantastic too! $10 for 8" hanging baskets, $8.99 for flats of 48 annuals, etc. So, put on your walking shoes, grab a large cart and shop for everyone on your Mother's Day list. I can guarantee you will make many trips to Gasko's Family Farm & Greenhouse.
Happy Mother's Day!
