No, No, Don't Panic!
There's still plenty of time to pick up your fresh wreaths, loose greens,
swags and roping to deck those halls (and railings and doors).
And Still Lots of Choices

boxwood - juniper - pine.
Now I don't want to mislead you. Choosing your Fresh Christmas tree won't be an easy task considering all of the beautiful Fraser, Noble, Nordmann & Grand Firs you will have to choose from.
If you really get stuck, may I suggest "one potato, two potato". If infighting breaks out among the children try "rock, paper, scissors". "Why? Because I said so". It always worked for my parents.
Don't Forget the Poinsettia
Now that you have selected your greens and your cart smells like a crisp winter morning in the woods, stop in the greenhouse and choose your perfect poinsettias. If you are not involved in the selection process, you may want to peruse the Christmas shop. It takes a little while to narrow down the right color & then just the right plants. Sorry, we tried to narrow down our supply of plants, but WE had a hard time making up OUR minds. They are all so pretty.

Family Traditions - Choosing a Fresh Cut Christmas Tree
|Going, as a family, to choose the Christmas|
tree has always been a tradition that includes
a little give and take. Bobby wants a BIG
tree, Sally wants a fat one. But in the end,
everyone goes home smiling, knowing what
fun it will be to decorate!
At Behnke's, we know our trees will become
part of your Christmas memories, so we want
only the best for you. Choose from our favorite
firs: Douglas, Fraser, Noble, Nordmann and
Grand - in sizes from 3 feet to 15 feet tall.
We'll even give your tree a fresh cut to help it

Rosemary has been steeped in myth and religion. It is a symbol of love and loyalty. The needle-like leaves are very fragrant, perking up a room during the winter. Just give it LOTS of sun and let it dry out between waterings. $19.99 & up

Yes Virginia, you can get
...And Bows! You can choose from any of our
fresh or artificial wreaths and have our design staff assemble a custom wreath and make a bow to fit your holiday décor. They can also customize lengths of garland to go over your mantel or doorway.
Please note: On the weekends our staff assembles a lot of custom orders so there
may be a little wait. However, we would be
glad to take your order and have it ready for
you the next day.
Leave your summer pots out and
make them something Special
Winter Porch Pots
Leave the pot, leave the soil, and fill it with
fresh cut greens and branches of berries.
Such a simple way to make your porch or patio more festive. Even window boxes are fair game. For a Christmas look add a few glass balls, a bow and even a strand of lights.
Want some help? Bring your pots in to our design staff in the fresh greens area. They would be glad to help you fill your pot. They have lots of fresh greens and decortions at their finger tips. Need some ideas? Check out our porch pots - ready to go!
(If you water the soil in your porch pot every couple of weeks
and mist the foliage, your evergreens will last a long time.)
Wrap it all up with a little
Okay, I call it roping and you may call it garland, but whichever term you use, let's not forget to hang some. Evergreen roping adds a wonderful Christmas-y feel to banisters, doorways, mantels and windows. You can keep it plain and simple or add ribbon, lights, pine cones and decorative picks. And just to make things a little more interesting, we are carrying FIVE different kinds: Boxwood, Fraser Fir, Cedar, White Pine and Mixed Greens - available in pre-cut lengths or sold by the foot. Stop in and wrap up your holidays today!
