Ben Paterno Sr

It is with deep sadness that we share that Ben Paterno Sr. passed away on Friday, December 30, 2016. He was 97 years old, predeceased by his wife Mary.

Ben Sr. was an integral part of encouraging and guiding Ben Jr, his son, to start Paterno Nurseries over 45 years ago. In 1984, Ben and Mary moved to the farm to help with the business and the growing Paterno family.

Over the past two decades Ben has spent his time focused on his garden producing a wildly successful crop each year – even in his 97th year! He also thoroughly enjoyed cutting the lawn on the farm, to the point that his great grandchildren knew which one was Noni’s tractor!

Ben will be deeply missed by his family and long-time customers and business associates of Paterno Nurseries.

In case you were uncertain, let us assure you that the fall is still a great time to plant.  If you put it off over the summer, let the cooler weather encourage you to get outside into your plant beds to update your gardens with flowering shrubs, evergreens, or trees.  As growers of nursery stock, we have a full selection of options for you to choose from on site, listed at wholesale prices everyday.  Have any questions about planting in the fall?  Give us a call, and we would be happy to help!

Spireas are flowering shrubs which add colour and depth to your landscape with their beautiful blooms.  There are so many varieties to choose from that it’s difficult to share all the nuances of each type here in one post!  Visit our PLANT SEARCH tool and type in “spirea” to learn more about what each variety has to offer.

All 2 gallon spireas are $12.25!
