Now It’s Summer

Get 33% off annuals, flowering tropicals, pottery, EarthMix® bagged products, plus ANY other item at 33% off; …and free veggie plants for community gardens! 06/25/2016
It's official now; summer has arrived! To be sure, each seasonal change brings its own challenges and rewards.  I want to let you know a week in advance: We will be open next Saturday July 2nd. In observance of July 4th, we are taking the opportunity to give our entire staff an extended weekend.  We will be closed July 4th and 5th.

We are again experiencing a seasonal weather pattern.  We gardeners can deal with that. It seems as though we have some hot and dry days, then we have some cooler days with rainfall.  That is the kind of weather that really keeps things growing!  It likely is keeping other things that you wish wouldn’t grow, going as well.  Weeds will grow in any conditions, but they currently are growing...well, like weeds!  If you can get your weed pulling scheduled to just after a soaking rain, you will meet much less resistance when pulling.  It’s hard enough work as it is; no need to intensify it.

We want to extend an invitation to community gardens. We have vegetable plants to share! While supplies last, we will donate to any community garden project up to 10 flats of vegetable plants. The vegetable plants will be available to community gardens on a first come, first served basis… so don’t delay! Please be prepared to show verification of your community garden association.  I suggest you be here at opening Friday morning to have your best choice/chance.

You get 33% off pottery, flowering tropicals, annuals and bagged EarthMix® products, plus we are giving an added reward: You may select another single item at 33% off as well! Offer good through June 30th. That can be bulk material or perhaps a topiary selection.  Choose a Japanese maple, crape myrtle or magnolia.  Any single item, not already specially priced is available.  Remember: gift cards and deliveries are excluded.  We now open Monday – Saturday 8am to 4pm.
