Opening for Spring 2015
Thursday, April 16th.

Donahues Spring retail store is unbelievable. While it might be raining (snowing!) outside, it’s spring at Donahues! The color will amaze you! It even amazes us and we’ve seen it year after year.

On opening day there is a great amount of traffic that just wants to come in to smell and feel spring. We even have customers that say it’s the best kind of therapy for the “winter blues”.

Our knowledgeable and dependable staff will be happy to help you in your gardening decisions. We love plants and want to share that love with anyone who walks through our doors.

Some of Donahues Specialties:

Moss Basket * Large moss hanging baskets filled with a multitude of annuals. These baskets will delight you with their color and continue to flourish all summer. We’ve been told, people can only find these baskets at Donahues and they come back year after year to make their selection. Click here to see more combos.

As the Clematis Specialists (shipping over 1 million clematis annually) our variety of clematis is complete. You’ll find 80-100 different varieties for you to select from. And if you don’t find the variety you’re looking for, be sure to ask a clerk. They’ll be happy to see if it’s available. Click here for more info.

  GeraniumsGreat Selection - For years we’ve been growing beautiful 5” Zonal Geraniums. People come back year after year to select our quality, blooming geraniums to fill their window boxes, pots and baskets. We also grow larger pots to go right out on your front step or patio. These patio pots add instant color and eliminate the time and effort of planting up your own pots. Best selection available prior to Mothers Day. 

Instant Color is what our English Garden Pots provide. We pot up mixtures of annuals into 10”, 12” and 14” Terra-Pots. These pots are unique and will add instant color anywhere you might want to add some color. There’s no waiting for plants to fill out -these were potted up in late Feb. or early March and they are spectacular. 

Each year Donahues has a large selection of “Proven Winners”.
Great SelectionThese plants work well for use in your own pots and window boxes. With the “English Garden” look being so in style, you can’t go wrong with trying some of the “Proven Winners”. Choose from Nierembergia, Tapien, Biddens Goldie, Cuphea, Million Bells, Wave Petunias, Sweet Potato Vine, Swan River Daisy, Lantana, Dahlberg Daisy or Blue Wonder. Be sure to ask what is new for 2014.

'Fun with a Mannequin'
Stella Springwear Donahues came up with the idea of planting a mannequin with 'Proven Winner' plants. We wanted to use the mannequin in the store and also to promote 'Proven Winners' . We were planning on entering our store display in a 'Proven Winner' contest. We designed 'Stella's' skirt of pink Vista Bubblegum Supertunia and her bodice was made of Lysimachia. During the spring season her dress went from being a tutu to a full length gown.

The best part was that 'Proven Winners' loved our creative idea and we won the contest and $1000. When the check arrived we chose to give the funds to two great charities. $500 was given to each Faribault Area Hospice and Ruth's House.

Stella Summerwear  

Great SelectionPerennials - We have a large selection. This is the year to start that new garden space or why not add a few perennials to an existing annual garden. You’ll be amazed what color this can bring to your space. 

Donahues Greenhouse prides itself on quality plants. When you purchase plants from Donahues you are buying Direct from the Grower! We also strive to add new plants to our list of plant material. Donahues Greenhouse is not your typical garden center it is an experience. Get together with friends or family and make an outing to Faribault. We’re sure you’ll come back year after year.
