It’s time for us to retire, so Southwest Gardener will retire, too. Here’s what we’d like you to know.

*All classes & events on the schedule will still take place. If you’ve signed up for a class, it’s still on.

* Tomatopalooza will happen on February 16 from Noon to 3 p.m. so you can still get the best tomato starts in Arizona for your spring garden. You’ll also have a chance to talk with Gregory Ware about his plans for the future – yes, there will be plants, and more!

* Everything in the shop must be sold including Fermob outdoor furniture, seeds, gifts, everything we stock. If there’s something you’ve been eyeing, come get it ASAP as we won’t be reordering. Current inventory is discounted. Store displays are priced separately.

* Gift certificates can be redeemed for inventory or display pieces. They have no cash value.

* The last day Southwest Gardener will be open is Saturday, Feb. 22.

Thank you for your kindness and support for the past 21 years. You made coming to work a real joy!
