It may be cold outside, but the experts at Pike Nurseries have the perfect antidote to beat the winter blues. Starting January, the local garden center invites green thumbs of all skills to two free events that brighten outdoor and indoor spaces, including decorating with houseplants and attracting birds to backyards. The experts welcome the wintry days to demonstrate how to refresh your plants through the chilly season.
