Local Artisan
If your feeling a little sluggish or somewhat drained, just spend a few moments this Saturday with Den Gorman. She has an amazing story and her positive outlook is contagious. When her husband, Pete, was diagnosed with acute lymbostic leukemia and given a 25 percent chance of survival, Deb says she dropped to the floor.  In August 2007 Peter received a stem cell transplant at the Dana Farber Cancer Center in Boston, Massachusetts.  His brother, Bill was his donor and saved his life! In the process, his blood type changed from A-positive to B-positive.

Hand Made Gold Jewelry from B+

Seeing how important stem-cell transplants are, Deb Gorman found a new passion: She started a company called, appropriately, B+, which makes jewelry and T-shirts, a portion of the proceeds go to the Stem Cell/ Bone Marrow Transplant programs at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

.
“Be positive; that’s always been our family motto.” As a family, grandparents, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, aunts and uncles, we rallied together with the incredible help from friends and talented doctors.

Two years later our family is a stronger, healthier and  a more grateful family than ever before. Come and meet Deb, let her positive attitude infect you, check out her local hand made jewelry and help ease the next family’s cancer journey.

Deb knows first hand and will tell you herself. “You have the power and strength to overcome anything.”

Viburnum – 20% off. Viburnums are a vast group of large, deciduous shrubs that are relatively troublefree and attractive for their flowers, fruits, fall foliage, and shape.

New Products from Gossett Brother Nursery

Heavy Guage Tomato Cage

Heavy Gauge Tomato Cage. (Say that 3 times fast!)

It’s kinda hard to get excited about a tomato cage, but allot of folks who see these heavy duty tomato cages are doing just that. These guys will hold up your tomato plants even if the tomatoes get as big as a watermelon! They have been flying out of the Nursery all week, and people have been commenting on how finally, someone has done a tomato cage right!
.

Hand Rakes

Hand Rakes

Hand Rakes

Ok these guys are not to win any awards for making in the fashion statement department. And there is a chance that your neighbors will look at you funny, but these Hand Rakes work. A customer requested them a few weeks back and we got some extra to use when we tidy up the Nursery. They work pretty good, and are great for small jobs or those tight corners where a rake just wont fit.
.

Garden Tools

Garden Tools

Pro-Lite Tools

We got a new tools into the Nursery this week, they are Pro-Lite tools from Radius Garden. These tool include Bulb Auger’s and Plant Transplanter’s. They are heavy duty, made of quality materials, professional grade and very ergonomic. We have use them out in the field for a few days and, so far,  they are living up to their reputation.
.
So come and get energized this Saturday at the Market and all weekend long at the Nursery. If nothing above has appealed to you, then come down on a Sunday (when the Nursery is a little quilter) and just stroll around to see a sampling of what nature has to offer. The absolute beauty of the plants, shrubs and trees available at Gossett Brothers Nursery is enough to inspire, calm and power you up. Come, wander and enjoy!!

Hello April, goodbye March madness!

What a week! First we get as much rain in day as we do in a month, but then the reward, amazing temperatures, blue skies and the feeling of spring in the air — finally!

This week the Market is outside again and we can’t wait! The Market is introducing a  new vendor this week, Pampered Cow Creamery. Pampered Cow offers amazing cheeses from grass fed cows. We also have three unique events this Saturday. First, its our very first household battery recycle Saturday. Bring your HOUSEHOLD batteries to Gossetts Nursery and dump them in the battery recycle box provided. Household batteries include both alkaline and nickel-cadmium batteries, so that includes non-rechargeables like AAA, AA, C, D, and 9 volt batteries, and rechargeable batteries.

Second Gossetts Farm Market is hosting representatives from Community Energy. Community Energy specializes in renewable energy. Local representatives Sam and Mark will be there to answer questions.

Third, we have another local artisan coming to the Market. Tammy Fischetti-Belle will bring her Fleur-Cut Flowers and floral arrangements. They will make a great holiday gift for that special someone or dress your home or dining room table with some of Tammy’s beautiful arrangements.
