Erin Thompson of Thompson’s Garden Gallery & Outdoor Living and Lauren Halbkat of A Gardner’s Garden place ferns and other seasonal plants into new planters being installed around light posts along N. Trade Street in Tryon. The two landscape companies partnered to provide the planters and plants at cost for the town. The town requested 12 planters as a trial run with a potential for more to go up in the next year as a means of making downtown Tryon more welcoming. Thompson said the two companies will maintain the planters one day a week and the town will take care of them two days a week. Also pictured are Cory Thompson and Stan Halbkat.
