March 2015 is our 70th birthday! In 1945 John H. Harper Sr. retired from the Phoenix Fire Department and with Alice Harper started Harper’s Nursery full time! 3 generations, several locations, and 70 years later, here we are!!
Come help us celebrate Saturday March 7th at our Landscape Design Centre in Scottsdale, 2529 N. Hayden rd. We’ll have a special speaker for “hot dogs and horticulture” that day-John H. Harper Jr. John is probably the reigning patriarch of the nursery and horticulture industry in the state. Come ask him questions about growing vegetable gardens in the valley, or growing most anything else. We doubt anyone has had more experience or seen more change in gardening/landscaping/horticulture in our city than John Harper!
As usual on our first Saturday the gardening part of the program begins at 10. Grillin begins just before lunch. Because of our special occasion-we’ll class up the offering a bit and be grilling pollo and carne asada! Come for a day of fun, history, and education-See you then!
