Spring Has Sprung at Koetsier’s Greenhouse

We’ve lucked out with a pretty mild winter, haven’t we? Even though there has been no “snowmageddon” to speak of this year, I’m still itching for ALL things spring! I recently put away all my wintry decor around my home and I’m loving the light, airy mood that spring decorations bring forth.

I don’t have a green thumb, but each year right around this time I get inspired to try once again to make my yard look pretty. Doing yard work together is actually kind of a fun family activity. I enjoy being out in the fresh air, raking out the winter debris of old leaves and fallen sticks.

Get Your Yard Ready for Spring at Koetsier’s

Are you a tried and true gardener with a serious green thumb? Koetsier’s family-owned greenhouse has everything for your highly-skilled gardening needs. Even if you’re a novice like me, Koetsier’s has a great, friendly staff that will help answer any questions you have and can offer you the helpful advice you might need.

I’m thinking about growing vegetables this year (now that we don’t have a young baby) we will try to grow some herbs and a few tomato plants at least. However, the best part of spring is the beautiful flowers that pop up all around West Michigan! Don’t you agree?


I love leisurely strolling through my neighborhood in the spring and literally stopping to smell the flowers. There are few things in life as glorious as breathing in a lilac tree that is in full bloom!

Koetsier’s Greenhouse opens on April 1, so you have a bit of time to head to Pinterest and pin all your favorite gardening ideas for this spring/summer season! I’m feeling all kinds of inspired right now just dreaming about spring. Who’s with me?
