Mill Creekers who were sad to see that My Garden Nursery moved to Bellingham last year can take heart that a new nursery and garden center has opened up in the same location.
Li’l Sprout Nursery & Garden Center has been open since November and is staffed by many of the same employees as My Garden Nursery. They offer a wide range of free classes most weekends.
Steve Compton heads things up and brings his extensive hydroponics knowledge to the business. He plans to have an extensive selection of hydroponics equipment and classes for home gardeners to create their systems.
Li’l Sprout Nursery & Garden Center is offering discounted tickets to the 2014 Northwest Flower & Garden Show until February 4th. Save $5 if you pick up your “Early Bird” tickets on or before that date.
