Last Call Before Fall for Trimming

Up to 4 items at 40% off extended for one week!

We’re coming down to the wire. The time is nigh upon us. They who hesitate are lost. A stitch in time saves nine. Things are more like they are now than they ever have been. Okay, that last one doesn’t apply. The point is: Do not delay if you are thinking of trimming most plants. It may be that you are seeing signs of new growth since we have had rain. If you are debating about whether to trim or not, chances are, this is your last best opportunity.

The reason this is such a good time for many plants is that they will have time to flush new growth. That growth will have ample time to properly ‘harden-off’ before the freezes of November. It may seem that November is too far away to worry. It might be true in other areas, but where your plants are concerned, the time is perfect. It is also a great time to fertilize. Fertilizer helps give those plants nutrition to push the new growth out and restore the vitality that might have been lost during the drought/heat wave. I strongly recommend using organic fertilizer, such as Espoma® HollyTone.

I want to take this opportunity to ask your support of the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition. The TBCC was founded in 1995 to increase awareness of breast cancer issues for men and women in Tennessee. Their efforts have led to a vast number of accomplishments and the ability to provide assistance for breast cancer patients across Tennessee. We have been privileged to support the TBCC by furnishing hundreds of flowers and setting up the iconic 30’ pink ribbon at the annual event. You can participate by donating to the TBCC. Simply go to www.tbcc.org. Give a look for the pink ribbon on the right side of the page. You can buy a flower for the cure!

We are extending our “Pick 4 items and get 40% off sale” one week! Sale ends at the end of business on Wednesday August 1, 2012.

We have iced beverages, free while you shop!
