Moss baskets galore
Get a jump start on spring at Pahl’s Market Moss Basket Days. Garden center pros will help you choose a wire basket and plants for your arrangement. Leave the basket in the greenhouse and the market’s staff will water and fertilize the plants. Pick it up by Mother’s Day. Moss Basket Days are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 2, 5 and 9 at 6885 W. 60th St., Apple Valley. Receive a $5 coupon if you return a previously used wire basket from Pahl’s.
