Spring is in Full Swing, So Get Into the Garden
You Imagine. We Create!
Custom Container Gardens from our Potting Shed
For your patio, porch, balcony, poolside, or that special spot in your garden, this season make a statement that is uniquely you. Our Potting Shed designers at each of our three locations will work with you to customize a container garden based on your needs and your choices.
Whether it be a riot of color, the subtle coolness of shade plants, an elegant bouquet in white, textures in shades of green, or an exotic tropical scene, the possibilities for combinations are endless. We can plant in your container, or help you select a container from our extensive pottery collection.
Edible Gardens. Everything but the Kitchen Sink
Today’s garden is much more than just a pleasing group of ornamental plants. It’s an outdoor living space, a bio-habitat, a conservation garden, a rain garden, a wildlife habitat or some combination of all these things. Well, why not an edible garden? Many vegetables, small fruits and herbs you purchase from us or at your local farmers market can be grown in your own garden. Maybe not a whole seasons’ worth, but think of the satisfaction of picking your own fresh, organically grown Blueberries, Basil, Grape Tomatoes or Mesclun Salad Mix right from your own back yard. And don’t let size limit the possibilities. You’d be surprised how much can be grown in containers or EarthBoxes on your deck or patio. Come in and let us help you put together a healthy mouth watering garden from our selection of seeds or seedlings.
Monthly Gardening Tips
- Beginning this month, feed Zoysia lawns with Ringer Lawn Restore.
- Release Ladybugs in the garden this month to control Aphids on Spirea, Honeysuckle and Roses.
- Now (finally!) it’s safe to plant Basil and Tomatoes.
- Lilacs and Tree Peonies will bloom better next year if you deadhead (remove spent flowers) after flowering this year and feed with Plant-tone.
- Don’t forget about the birds. Most plants have not begun to produce the seeds birds need. Keep your feeders clean and fill them with our selection of birdseed.
- Water temperatures are warm enough to begin feeding fish and aquatic plants in your pond.
- Spray roses with Organocide and feed with Rose-tone.
- Annuals and vegetables should be fed monthly with Plant-tone.
