Decoration Day Cancelled

Jan-Jan’s nursery is a farmers market located in Rising Starr. Since March of 1994 the nursery has been located in the same location. Not only has she had the nursery in Rising Starr, but she also has had one in Mineral Well, Eastland, and Cross Plains. Jan-Jan joined the business, because she loves dealing with plants, and watching them grow. If you want to find some good plants Jan-Jans is the place to go. By Brooke Reep
