My first time in the 41 years of my life Ive ever been in a nursery. I’ve truly been missing out. I stopped for a quick trip with my kids and we ended up getting lost in Busy Bee for almost an hour just admiring all the wonderful shades of colors and scents. The staff helped us make our selections and showed us how to prune off dead flowers so the new ones could grow and fill out the pots. Really knowledgeable and not once did we feel rushed. The kids already asked if we could go back again later in the week.
