Stark Bro’s Set To Host 35th Annual Customer Appreciation Days April 11-14

Stark Bro’s Nurseries & Orchards Co., is once again ready to host its popular once-a-year sale event, to be held from April 11-14.
Customers travel hundreds of miles for acres and acres’ worth of bargains and events that are family-friendly — and free. To the delight of local gardeners, everything from fruit trees and berry plants to shrubs and perennials will be on sale. This year, event-goers will be able to browse the wares of artisans and craft-makers, and even grab a bite to eat after a hard day of shopping.
A special bonus for any visitor making a purchase of $18.16 or more is a free quarter-inch-caliper Stark® Franklin Cider™ apple tree.
“Make it a point to see the unadvertised specials, too,” says Ken Lane, Stark Bro’s Chief Marketing Officer. “This is the premier planting time of year, and sale prices are on for the things people want to plant most. Customer Appreciation Days is absolutely the time to come and get what you need for your spring planting, and you can happily plan on saving money at the same time.”
For the first time, Stark Bro’s will be offering six “City Planter Collections,” replicas of the planter arrangements found around downtown Louisiana. There are 24 plants in each collection, which will be offered at $39.99. Collections are available for both sun and shade gardens.
Daily prize drawings for $25 gift certificates, and a grand prize drawing on April 22 for a $250 gift certificate require no purchase, and visitors need not be present to win. There will also be a giveaway of a Stark Bro’s wooden wall hanging.
For those interested in learning a thing or two, there will be demonstrations during the Customer Appreciation event. The MO Master Gardeners Association will be presenting a talk on spring gardening tips April 13 at 11 a.m. John Logan, a direct descendant of the Stark family, will offer a wine-making seminar April 13 at 2 p.m. A coffee-roasting demo will be given by Ryan Cornell from the Twin Pikes Roastery on Sunday, April 14 at 1 p.m.
