Although cooler temperatures might seem a threat to Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, we have noticed one positive side effect. The colors in the market inventory are more intense with cooler weather.
“I was not aware of the cooler temperatures and their effect on our market,” Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry explained. “Our mums and other baskets have a change of color and greater appeal.”
Staff works to keep plants protected from more inclement weather, and Stuart has other ideas about market changes. He said, “We plan to return to hanging basket propagation for our greenhouses and expansive gardens, much like we did in past years. We are trying to return to service as it once was at the market.”
