An avid container gardener in her former home of Las Vegas, Patti is thrilled to be living—and gardening– in her new home in Prescott. Her great work at Watters Garden Center carries over to her home garden, where you’ll find everything from cauliflower and chives to peas and pumpkins. Patti and her husband enjoy fishing for trout, and hike the Prescott area as often as they can–but never the same trail twice! They love strolling the Square, showing off pictures of their grandchildren, and the kindness of the folks in their new hometown. Come in and ask Patti about the latest flowers and veggies she’s tending, and let her experiences set you up for success in your own garden. We’re lucky to have you, Patti!
