The Savannah Garden Expo-Exhibition Garden Competition



We at the Wilmington Island Hester & Zipperer are extremely flattered to have been invited to compete in the Exhibition Garden Competition at The Savannah Garden Expo this Spring. We eagerly accepted, and by eagerly I mean that I said:

"Come on Mary-Ann! I know it's Spring and we are going to be busier than ever and have to design something fantastic on top of that. Come on! Please! Can we? Can we? You know you want to! What is stress to two old pros like us? "

She agreed before I could resort to a sorority-sister-like hug with more sacriny-sweetness than Annette Funicello. Incidentally, those of you looking to barter on plants might try this approach with her. That's how we successfully instituted "Naked Fridays" at the store.

Good luck Christine. I hope it all goes well for you.

BTW, 'Naked Fridays' sound interesting.

They most certainly are interesting. We find that we sell fewer chemicals and a heck of lot more hanging baskets of annuals. Also, for some reason, people are always asking us to pick up pots for them. Lift with the knees. That's what I always say.

Good grief!

Can I borrow the CCTV tapes?

No CCTV. We're not a pharmacy.
