One of the many reasons I enjoy working at Hicks Nurseries is that every season brings something new to be excited about. Right now I am loving everything Christmas! We’re basically a one-stop-shop for everything you could need for the holidays – from poinsettias and hostess gifts to fresh and lifelike trees, wreaths and garlands to Christmas lights, live reindeer and Santa – it’s all here!
Let me tell you about a few of my favorite things at Hicks this holiday season:
1. Designer Poinsettia. These poinsettia are a fun twist on a traditional plant and make a great hostess gift. Everyone who comes to my house will be talking about my beautiful blue poinsettia!
2. LED Christmas Lights. Lights that will help me save on my energy bill? I’m in! I recently purchased a bunch of LED net lights for the shrubs in front of my house – they really do make decorating so easy and the lights are nice and bright too.
3. Fresh Greens. I like to buy a bunch of fresh greens and painted birch branches to stuff into the planters on either side of my front door. The greens smell great and the birch branches (I like the red ones) add a little color. For me it’s all about keeping it simple.
4. Christmas Tree. Personally I don’t need to purchase a tree this year. I’ll use the lifelike tree I purchased here at Hicks a few years ago again this year. It still looks brand new! If you need a tree – fresh or lifelike, we have an amazing selection and many wonderful people here to help you make the choice that is best for you. Stop in and check it out – all of our trees are on display for you to see and touch.
5. Family Fun!
Our Christmas animated story “Christmas at the North Pole” tells the story of how Santa picks out gifts for all of his friends. Admission is free but donations of non-perishable food items for Long Island Cares is appreciated.
Santa! Santa is here at the Nursery Mon.-Fri. 1pm-4pm & 5pm-8pm; Sat. & Sun. 10am-1pm & 2pm-6pm. Don’t forget to bring your camera.
