  A weekly blog from Tom Dayton....

December 2, 2016
December 1st although much cooler has come in like a lamb; that is, comparing it to other cold snowy Decembers that have come and gone. At the nursery, cut Christmas tree sales have been brisk with the largest ones of 10 feet plus almost sold out. After a lull in the grave blanket business after the Thanksgiving rush, orders have picked up again so that a fourth cutting of fresh pine and spruce branches is necessary. 

Unrooted cuttings of annual flowers have arrived from Guatemala and have been stuck into small pre-made cells filled with a peat-perlite mixture. Read entire blog entry...

  At the nursery, the cut trees from southern Ohio are ready to sell with many stood up for viewing except in the case of any tree over eight feet as they are quite heavy and unwieldy. Wreaths, roping, branches, poinsettias and cyclamen lend a Christmas feel to the otherwise desolate grounds with all the landscape shrubs placed in the storage huts.

For a look into our preparations for the winter months, including the arrival of Christmas trees and construction of cemetery decorations, watch the video below.
