The back to school tent sale is a bittersweet time for us here at the garden center. When our 4 boys were little, we couldn’t wait for them to head back to school after a fun-filled but lengthy summer. We would round up shrubs, grasses, trees and perennials and place them under a big white tent in the parking lot. Over the years, customers began asking when the “tent sale” would start. The tradition became so popular, that it continues today even though are boys are grown up and the tent is long gone.
