Ambergate Gardens is proud to be a part of your GARDENING!
Dear Friends of Ambergate Gardens,
With mixed emotions, we are announcing our retirement at the end of the 2013 season. We have had a great 28 year run with Ambergate Gardens but we feel the time is right for us to start the next chapter of our lives.
Though we still enjoy the business, we are ready to have some free time during the growing season. Whenever we talk to customers about this, they ask what we are going to do. Trust us, we are not totally retiring from horticulture. We have not been able to seriously garden for the last twenty-five years, so that’s first on the list. Mike plans to spend more time lecturing, writing and consulting. If you would like to be made aware of our future horticultural activities, sign up for our e-mail list (if you are not already on that list) on our web site, www.ambergategardens.com. We also plan to do some traveling to see gardens and other wonders of nature. In addition, our first grandchild is due this fall so we will undoubtedly be doing some babysitting.
We have sold our property to Mattamy Homes and next year it will begin to sprout 50+ homes. Ambergate Gardens will simply go away and all stock is being liquidated this fall. To that end, we will start our one and only sale on Tuesday, September 10 with 25% off of all stock. However, if you present this letter, we will add another 10% discount.
The sale will continue until everything is sold and markdowns will become steeper as we draw closer to our October 13 closing date. Further discounts will be announced by e-mail only. No additional discounts will apply during the liquidation and all sales are final.
We hope many of you will be able to join us for our Final Customer Appreciation Weekend on September 14 and 15. There should still be a great selection of plants at that time and we will be hosting food and refreshments.
- The nursery will be open from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. both days.
- Party Pizza will be serving pizza from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. both days. Other treats and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
- Mike and Jean will be onsite and look forward to visiting with you.
We deeply appreciate your support and patronage over the years and wish you all the best with your gardening endeavors. We hope to cross paths with many of you at some future horticultural event.
Mike and Jean Heger
