Samantha’s Gardens End of Year Newsletter
I would like to start by saying “Thank You!” to all our clients for an amazing 2022.
We had so many wonderful projects this year. We added so many new maintenance clients and several spectacular garden renovations. For anyone who is still on our waiting list, we promise, we will get to you this season.
Our amazing team is working hard. Kevin as our new account manager, Kate in the office and Wes, overseeing operations, are all doing a wonderful job. Wes has hired a crew specifically for our enhancements which will lighten up the construction crews.
Successful Cutting Garden
Our cutting garden was so successful this year. We had beautiful cut flowers and bouquets for sale on the side of the road in front of our HQ. It seemed like a new favorite for all of the local folks. This year, we are excited to be introducing more varieties of cut flowers and we’re looking forward to joining the local farmer’s markets, where “Rosey” our 1947 red Dodge Pickup will be proudly displaying our magnificent array of flowers. We hope to see you out there! Stay tuned for my information.
Samantha’s Gardens Christmas Tree and Holiday Shoppe was a blast. We had so much fun with all of the kids drinking hot cocoa, making s’mores and being creative in the Kid’s Craft Corner. They made adorable ornaments and “Chet” the super cute Pinecone Reindeer. All of our workshops were completely booked, including the additionally requested private workshops (which were a shocker to me). What a huge success this was! I am already thinking about what incredible workshops we are going to add for next year.
If you have ideas or requests for next year, please reach out. We would love to hear your ideas. Let’s get creative!

What’s Happening in the Greenhouse
The temperature is comfy for all of our client’s plant babies. We are diligently working on ordering all of the seeds for the cutting garden and client’s veggie gardens. We will be starting the seeds accordingly.
Please get your requests to me ASAP. All orders are going in by January 15th. We are looking forward to getting back to work and our next growing season.
Preparations for the Upcoming Season
Maxsuell will begin welding the garden art. His garden art includes flower supports and peony rings. They will be available for purchase on our website soon. If you are thinking of any other garden enhancements or larger scale projects, now is the time to reach out so that we will be sure to add it to our drawing table and get the job done in time for Spring.
During our downtime, Wes is available for interior painting. He has several years experience and does an amazing job. He has done several jobs for myself and other clients and comes highly recommended. So if you are thinking of giving a room a facelift, contact me and I will have Wes get in touch.
On a sadder note, some of you may have already heard, our dear bookkeeper, Terie of 16 years suddenly passed away this fall. Vlasta and I have not yet found a replacement for helping us with invoicing so please bear with us because we are a little behind. No worries, it will get to you.
We’re Nothing Without You
All of us at Samantha’s Gardens want to thank you for all of your continued support and being a part of the SG family. We love what we do, but it is so much more fun and rewarding when we have families like yours to work with.
