Strawberry Hill Farms - Start Thinking About Spring

This is the view from where we parked at the very east edge of the nursery. 

On a cold December day we can comfort ourselves knowing that inevitably
spring will come just as we think we will not be able to take the cold and dark another moment.  In March one of Columbia's premier plant nurseries will be opening back up.  Now is a good time to start planning our gardens.

I took these pictures this summer, but have used Strawberry Hill Farms for over three years. Prices are great, and the plant quality is outstanding.  I get consistently good results with the bedding plants and the flowers I buy there.  These pictures were taken during a trip when I brought my mother into town so she could buy flowers.  By that time I had already been to Strawberry Hill Farms at least twice, and my garden was thriving.

This family owned and operated business, like all family owned and operated businesses in our community, deserves our support.  The quality of their products and their willingness to share their knowledge, makes it easy to do so.
