The seeds are sprouting; the flowers, blooming.
Basically, it's prime time at Oakland Park Nursery right now, and they're celebrating with sales, seminars and special weekend events.
This year-round favorite (with four locations scattered around the North Side of Columbus) offers everything from seeds and veggies to flowers and trees, along with the fertilizers, watering cans and know-how you need to make them grow.
Not one with a green thumb? Landscaping services are available, and a constantly-updated plant-care to-do list is available on Oakland’s website.
