In January 2002, Dave and Marilyn Sabold sold the Gardner Gardens retail
nursery to Dan and Mary Kirkmire, who have changed the name to Wild
Hearts Nursery. Sabolds had built the nursery over a 26-year period,
offering hardy and inexpensive flowers, shrubs, and trees to the community.
Sabolds retained the Gardner Gardens name for the skincream and beekeeping
operations, and for growing plants to supply Wild Hearts Nursery.
They enjoy having more time for growing garlic and ornamental plants.
Dave volunteers his time to the Chewuch Basin Council and the Methow
Conservancy. Marilyn paints watercolors and does handbuilt pottery.
They now get to play and travel more.
skincream and beekeeping operations.
Skincream is made using
all natural ingredients: beeswax, almond
& coconut oils, vitamin E, & propolis*.
We have two different skin cream options:
The Regular (softer) version - preferred by most customers for ease of applying.
Original (harder) version - preferred by deep tissue massage therapists for its balance of glide and friction.
Both formulations contain the exact same ingredients but in different proportions.
Both versions are priced the same.
* Propolis is a resinous substance collected by worker honey
bees from the leaf buds of cottonwood trees.
The bees pack the propolis on their hind legs, and carry it back to
their colony, where it is used by worker or "hive" bees
as a sealant and sterilant in the colony nest. The antibacterial
and antifungal effects of propolis protect the colony against disease.
