In Praise of Fathers
What’s in the Garden:
Our Dads work hard for us, and deserve special recognition for their constant love, care, and support. Spruce up your yard for Dad’s big day (Father’s Day — Sunday, June 19) with loads of colorful annuals. Our annuals, including veggie plants and hanging baskets, are now 25% off. Visit our Picks page for additional details. (Offer excludes Herbs.)
Dad’s outdoor living space is going to look more inviting with a glazed ceramic patio planter. Planters 10” in diameter and larger are one Rohsler’s Picks of the week at 25% off.
Of course, Dad needs a comfortable place to sit. Offer him one of our Adirondack chairs or outdoor rockers. Our ADK chairs are available in Eucalyptus, Western Cedar, Teak, and maintenance-free Poly. The Amish-made Poly ADK chairs come in an array of lively colors. Styles include Fanback, Kennebunkport, and Lodge. Adirondack chairs are one of our Featured Picks in anticipation of Father’s Day and are on sale at 20% off.
Now warm up the atmosphere with a chimenea or fire pit, which are also among our Picks on the Web this week.
Accent your Dad’s garden with one of our sweet-scented Roses from David Austin, a Shrub Rose (Knock Outs and Flower Carpets), Hybrid Teas, Floribundas, Climbers, and more. Check our Picks page for special prices.
A colorful Hydrangea, a blooming shrub like Buddleia, or one of our berry plants will also make a great addition to Dad’s garden. We have a large assortment of plants for your traditional berry patch, container, or “edible” landscape. All of these items are Father’s Day Week Picks.
Once you’ve added the color, you’ll need some texture. Our Stachys varieties will do the trick. Lambs’ Ears, with its soft-as-silk leaves and bright flowers, is a favored variety. We also have special offers on Hardy Geraniums, Penstemon, Veronica, and Astilbe.
Does your Dad enjoy watching the birds? Present him with one of our well-made bird feeders, and complete the gift with seed and suet from our garden center. During the summer months, birds are busy raising their young. Your Dad may even have the pleasure of watching adult birds leading their chicks straight to his feeder.
For something extra special, add a birdbath. When the heat of the season settles in, birds need a reliable source of fresh, clean water. You may attract Catbirds, Northern Cardinals, Blue Jays, Black-capped Chickadees, American Goldfinches, Tufted Titmice…and many other captivating species. Our feeders and our clay, glazed ceramic, and concrete bird baths are now being offered at 20% off.
If your Dad would benefit from some ergonomic gardening products, check out our supply of specialty items and tools, including the Radius line. We carry Gronomics and Bar Harbor raised garden beds in Cedar and Composite that make gardening less of a chore and more of a Zen experience. We even have a wheelchair accessible model.
This week, Dads who own ponds are in for a special treat. Father’s Day Special: Buy one Koi and receive a second Koi of equal or lesser value free with coupon. Limited time only (June 17-19). Coupons can be downloaded off our Rohsler’s Picks page. Treat Dad to a water plant: Buy three aquatic plants and receive a fourth free!
Be sure to check our Rohsler’s Picks page for all the latest special offers. Not sure what to give Dad? He’s sure to appreciate a Rohsler’s Gift Certificate.
Make this Father’s Day extra special with a gift straight from the heart!
