With the arrival of summer, many residents in Mid-Michigan have begun planting personal gardens. With every garden being a unique work of art, many local green thumbs turn to Lapham’s Garden Center for their various planting needs.
Lapham’s carries a large variety of flowers, annuals and perennials to vegetables and herbs, deck pot tomatoes and hanging baskets.
Brett Sauve, a second-year employee at Lapham’s tells visitors that “the petunia is a good flower for beginners.” But he’s quick to note that it also requires a lot of water and sunlight. So even the easiest flower requires some attention.
Lapham’s Garden Center, located in Midland, has two locations in the Mt. Pleasant area. Flowers and garden supplies will be available at both locations through July 4. The two area locations are the Blockbuster parking lot off Pickard Road in Mount Pleasant and on M-20, five miles past the the Soaring Eagle Casino.
