Just in time to fight this amazingly fierce winter chill, we have what you need to bring some spring color and cheer to your home: Bachman’s very own Watch ‘em Grow gardens!
Our experts planted a variety of spring bulbs in moss topped twig baskets this fall and orchestrated it so that they'll bloom beautifully with the right tender love and care this winter. These baskets are a wonderful way to get a jump on spring, or can be given as a perfect gift.

Chocolate and love - they just seem to go together so naturally! Especially for Chocolove, a premium chocolate company based in Boulder, CO. Their dream began in a cocoa field in Indonesia and grew into a business that’s now a pioneer in the chocolate industry.
Chocolove chocolate bars are distinctly flavored bars made with all-natural ingredients. Flavors range from a sweet, creamy milk chocolate with 33% cocoa content, to an extra strong dark with an impressively strong yet smooth 77% cocoa content. Other Chocolove bars are married with flavors and ingredients like almonds, raspberries, ginger and sea salt.

The air has once again turned brisk and I cannot help but to start thinking about Thanksgiving. I know turkey is usually the number one food for most people during this holiday; the annual pilgrimage to the meat department is something I certainly do. Turkey is good, but I am a produce guy, and when I think of Thanksgiving, I think of cranberries!
For more than 20 years, Lunds and Byerly’s has grown a wonderful relationship with the local Wetherby Cranberry Company to bring our customers the finest cranberries in the world. This exclusive item has been a staple on our shelves from harvest time well into winter.
