Memorial Day Weekend:
Memorial Day Hours: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Spring Bluff Nursery will be open Memorial Day weekend and Memorial Day for all of your planting needs. Memorial Day was originally recognized as Decoration Day, a time when families would plant flowers near the graves of loved ones who had passed during their service in the U.S. military. Decoration Day became Memorial Day when Gen. John A. Logan, an Illinois native born in what is now Murphysboro Illinois (near Carbondale) declared on May 5, 1868 that “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” In recognition of Memorial Day, we will be open during shortened hours on Monday, May 30, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
