    Yes gardeners, there will be a RIM Spring Flower Sale again this year! Soon it will be time to dig in the dirt and plant flowers to enjoy during spring and summer.  RIM has used Cressey Greenhouses in Rowley for many years, and their plants are healthy and beautiful.  We’ll be taking orders during April and  delivering your flowers on Mother’s Day weekend. In addition to patio planters and hanging plants, we are adding “SunPatiens” to our usual selection of favorite annuals. We continue to offer New Guinea impatiens which do best in shady areas and now offer colorful SunPatiens, which thrive in the sun.


    As always, RIM is grateful for your incredible support for our work with refugees and asylum seekers. Currently we are supporting an asylum seeker from Nepal and, in collaboration with Catholic Charities, we are supporting a young woman from Afghanistan who hopes to become a nurse. Thank you!

    “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” -Audrey Hepburn
