Flowering Basket

Sunday, May 8 marks Mother’s Day in the United States, a day dedicated to celebrating the honor, love and respect we have for motherhood in all its forms. Can you think of a better gift than something from Harding Nursery for the woman who was likely a part of your life when you were in the nursery? 

The timing could not be better for you to pick up something to plant, whether for the outside garden or inside a home … whatever the extent of your “green thumb.” The family business’ full selection of flowers, perennials, shrubs and trees are Colorado climate specific (specialties include blue spruce, shade trees, evergreen spreaders and potentillas).  

If you are looking for flowers for color bowls, instant pots and hanging baskets, and decorative items like arbors, benches, birdbaths, figurines, fountains and pots, Harding Nursery has an excellent selection!
