We are taking a vacation!

Bloomers will be closed from Monday, June 21 thru Friday, June 25 for a much needed break

At Bloomers, we are so thankful for all of our awesome customers who have been so kind to frequent our nursery. It really makes our job so much more enjoyable to deal with such a fantastic customer base. Thank You!

We have been working hard and will continue to strive daily to improve and expand our nursery offerings to make Bloomers an attractive, fun and well stocked garden center for everybody’s browsing and shopping pleasure. Our goal is to continue to be a top notch outdoor living resource center and to look for new ways to improve and excel in horticulture by God’s grace and for His glory and of course the good of our community. With all that being said, we are in need of a little down time to recharge our batteries and relax away from the hustle and bustle of daily business in the garden center so we are taking a vacation for a few days later this month.
