New Member Benefit Partner
Hello everyone! We have an exciting update to share. A NEW Member Benefit Partner - 4 Seasons Garden Center in Breinigsville, PA.
They are now offering LVRS members 15% off of all plants and 10% off of everything else (excluding already discounted items).
After a lovely chat on the phone with Amy, their manager, I decided to head out to their garden center to check out what they have. I left with 2 Kordes Roses, some perennials, and an adorable elephant garden statue. How much did I save with this new member benefit? $17.01! You'll be able to recover your annual LVRS membership in no time with this new benefit alone - not to mention all of the other benefits you receive with membership in LVRS! 😉
4 Seasons Garden Center is open during COVID-19 and are taking all recommended precautions - no customers allowed inside the store; just the greenhouse and outdoor sections - social distancing and contactless credit/debit card payments.
They have a HUGE selection of pots. And (I believe) this shipment of garden statues just came in today - with several very nice options to choose from and they were all VERY reasonably priced. Lots of trees and bushes for sale outside and many herbs and vegetables in the greenhouse (as well as some lovely perennials and annuals).
When I spoke to Amy on the phone, she immediately said, "We don't typically carry many roses, usually landscape roses, but that can change and I would certainly be willing to consider signing up with David Austin." (Music to my ears!)
When I went today, I'm assuming they haven't received rose shipments for this year yet (as most nurseries in the area haven't, so what they have in stock is probably what they have from last year). Even so, there was still a decent number of roses to choose from. I did see a lot of different double knock-outs, knock-outs rose trees, etc. as expected, but they do also carry Kordes roses - which I was excited to see.
Kordes Rosen is a German rose brand that really has some lovely varieties. Many refer to them as "the German David Austin Roses" - though it may be more correct to refer to David Austin Roses as "the English Kordes Rosen" (as Kordes is the older brand!)
Now their Kordes roses are not marked as distinctively as a David Austin Rose would be; perhaps a reason why more people are familiar with DA roses than Kordes roses. They don't say "KORDES" in big letters anywhere. If you look at the back of the tag for each variety, the patented name for the variety is listed with care instructions. Rose varieties patented by Kordes start with KOR. So the back of the tag may say, "KORgeowim." For David Austin Roses, the first three letters on their roses will be "AUS."
A selection of garden statues (I left with one of the sitting elephant statues).
Some of the many trees and shrubs currently available.
Newly in-stock annuals & perennials out on display by the parking lot.
Some of the "Kordes" roses they have in stock.
I left with an "Earth Angel" and a "Lemon Fizz" rose.
Some of the pots (and a bench) they have in stock.
I loved these pots! I almost left with one even though I don't even currently need any!
A view of one isle of the greenhouse - lots of annuals and perennials in stock!
The other isle of the greenhouse - lots of vegetables and herbs available too.
Seriously, I don't think I've ever seen such a big selection of flower pots to choose from - anywhere you looked, there was another display with more options.
They have lots of dirt, mulch, and stone available (from gravel to boulders).
Beautiful pots for sale!
What came home with me today!
