Happy 20th Anniversary

April 1, 1989 we became the proud owners of Mission Hills Nursery.

As I reflect back on those first years, my husband was coming home physically tired but ever so happy as he had fulfilled one of his dreams, to own his own nursery. The community welcomed us and taught us what they were looking for in a nursery. I believe we have all grown to love each other and respect each other. We could not do what we do day in and day out if not for the support we receive from every one of our customers. Some days can be quite challenging but then a small child will come in holding their grandfather's hand and buy a package of seeds. The joy in their eyes knowing they will be "gardening" is as the commercial says Priceless.

Many of you have watched our own children grow into adults, just as we have watched yours. Gone are the days of Tiger jumping around on the bags of soil, now he drives the forklift full of soil and Kristi pulling all the pretty flowers to bring me a bouquet. In place are the days in which Fausto and I don't have to show up every day, Tiger is there working with you now and putting his own style on the nursery. Kristi gives me moral support when I need it and still brings me bouquets.

We truly are blessed to be in the community we are in. We appreciate each day talking with those who drive from all parts of San Diego county to garden with us. We have some of the best employees who also love sharing their experience and knowledge with each of you. For those of you who work a stressful job every day, just stopping by and wandering around the nursery is a form of therapy, we are glad to be here for you.

As we have in the past we will be celebrating our anniversay all week in different ways. The biggest and best though happens on Wednesday April 1st, No joke. Every purchase will be reduced by 20%, no coupon needed. Thinking of a fountain? Wednesday is the day to buy it. Thinking of redoing your containers with new vegetables? Wednesday is the day to do it. Here's the small print, limited to stock on hand, no special orders, can not be combined with any other offer or sale.

Thank You for helping us to be here 20 years, come out and celebrate with us.
