  A weekly blog from Tom Dayton....
all blogs

March 24, 2017
Now that the Vernal equinox is past, the spring season has begun with daylight hours now longer than the nights.  Soon it will be time to stop lighting tuberous begonias and dahlias in the greenhouse as the longer daylight hours will ensure that the plants will make growth for flowering instead of the energy going to tuber formation during shorter days. 

Truckloads of stock have arrived all this past week as we scurry to set up the sales yard.  Much of the stock though has not been placed on the on-line inventory in order to discourage sales (ironically) as during the unloading process, loaders and wagons are going full tilt which can make for a dangerous situation for anyone in the area.

  The Easter Bunny is on his way... to Dayton's on April 8th and April 15th!

Be sure to bring your camera!

There are 2 options to see the Easter Bunny...

Option #1: 11:00-12:00
Join us in the morning for a special project. We will work together to create a cute basket planter (pink, blue or green) filled with Easter Bunny food for you to take home! These edibles will consist of the bunny's favorite snacks: lettuce, parsley and pansies. To top it off, a packet of carrot seeds and a special bunny pick for decoration. The Easter Bunny will really appreciate these snacks after a busy morning delivering Easter baskets to the kids.

The Easter bunny himself (or herself) will join us during this time for a private session with the group! (cost: $14.99 per planter; limited to 12 containers per date)

Reservations are required. Please call or e-mail (info@daytonnursery.com) to reserve your spot! Please specify number of planters and date.

Option #2: 12:00-2:00
Stop by for a quick meet and greet with the Easter Bunny (cost: free)

Reservations not required. First come, first served.
