Spring has sprung, and Uncle John’s is excited for the new arrivals to their Olmsted Falls location.
Everyone at Uncle John’s has their favorite pick, and for Marcia Hawkins it’s Foxgloves, the stylish gardening gloves that have been flying off the shelves. Zack “Hosta Man” Kinzy is a fan of the new “Magical Gold” Forsythia that sports more complete flower coverage and full, bold flowers.
For a more complete lowdown on the spring lineup at Uncle John’s, visit them in Olmsted Falls:

Here’s the low-down on what’s low down…your garage floor.
