We have received many calls and emails regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the state-wide business closures. Busy Bee Garden Center will open as scheduled on April 1st and remain open daily unless things change with the state regulations. As an agricultural business, we not only grow flowers but also food, and by most state’s definition are considered an essential business activity.

The health and safety of our employees and customers is always our highest priority. We are taking appropriate sanitation precautions to include practicing a healthy social distance when we interact with each other and our customers. Sanitization efforts have been expanded and include sanitizing shopping carts, baskets, checkout areas, doors and other items commonly touched. Also, our retail greenhouse is open and airy and offers wide aisles. The ventilation system is constantly refreshing the air inside the greenhouse. We also offer a large outdoor display area with many more plants.

Now is the perfect time to consider planting a garden. Gardening is a wonderful way to alleviate stress, be physically active, practice social distancing, all while providing a safe, healthy food source for you and your family. Busy Bee Garden Center is your source for seeds and vegetables, fertilizer and gardening tools.

We will be providing both curb-side pickup and home delivery services in the Indianola area to customers who wish to remain distanced during this time. You may contact us on Facebook or email or phone.

We are monitoring the situation daily. We are following the recommendations made by our state and local government, as well as the CDC. We will post any necessary changes to our business on Facebook and our website.

Thank you for continuing to support your local small businesses.
