Clash of the Containers

A fun event! Five brave employees from South-Hill Rosauers and Huckleberries Supermarkets will compete to plant the most beautiful containers. Each contestant will have 15 minutes to pick out plants and create a legendary masterpiece in a pot. Join us at 1:00 under the lath to cheer on your favorite team and help judge the results. The theme is a mythological Greek sporting event reminiscent of “Clash of the Titans”, including props and music. The winning entry will be auctioned off.

Personal Potters

Our personal potters will create a special container just for you. You can choose from jet black, strawberry red, lemon/lime and sky blue pots. Just purchase your plants, the pot and the soil and our Personal Potters will plant them. The Personal Potters will have three designs with plants selected for their extra hardiness. These will be hardy enough to survive in a container in Spokane, during a -20 degree winter. You also have the option of choosing your own plants and the Personal Potters will happily plant them up.
The pot and the soil together are $10.

The personal potters will also be helping customers plant their own fairy hypertufa gardens.  They will have an assortment of succulents, hand made accessories and custom hypertufa containers. The cost is only $12 for three succulents of your choice, a small, hypertufa container, soil and 1-3 fairy furniture pieces.  

Such fun!


Five pre-planned gardens – They can be ordered in advance online and picked up at the sale!  But you’ll need to decide soon because online ordering is only available Through Tuesday, May 30.
