Xtremely fun greenhouse to be a part of. Our granddaughter began ‘ringing out’ customers when she was 12. We asked her how she was able to keep a steady hand at the sometimes weary job with so many plants and prices. She said it was easy. If she undercharged someone they never complained and if she overcharged the customer; they would let her know. Abi says “No problem!”
You could never shop Sherbondy’s too mulch
Zealous customers who want us to succeed. We have the best customers who come from all over Iowa and Nebraska. They are fabulous fun people who are not rude or proud because they enjoy growing a garden.
Vegetables: We have one greenhouse with nothing but vegetables and fruits. Raspberries, grapes, and fruit trees are out the back greenhouse door. We sell the most popular Burpee Vegetable Varieties.
We use no PGRs on plants. This is very important information. PGRs make plants nice and green and maybe have a nice little fruit, but if they are over chemicalized they will have stunted growth and production.
We have a very wide selection of vegetables including our own tomato selection named Oris Murphy. This is a 150 year old selection that was passed on for several generations of Council Bluffs families.
Herbs all the basics and then some
Tomatoes small packs to large potted. A very, very large selection. Heirlooms, hybrids, cherries, pear, Roma types, yellow, orange– we try to cover all your favorites and all the categories.
