Good afternoon everyone! For those of you interested in herb gardening, we have received several wonderful shipments of plants this last week. Just about any herb you may be familiar with, and perhaps a few varieties you haven't heard of, have made their way to Garden Supply.
And although our last frost of the season is scheduled for April 15th, you can get started on your gardens now with just a bit of tender care. Come talk to our friendly experts. They are always on hand to answer all your questions.
You are going to love our herb variety. We've got 4 types of thyme: Silveredged, Archer's Gold, Golden Lemon, and English. 4 types of sage: Common, Tricolor, Berggarten, and Pineapple. Hidecote and Goodwin Creek lavender. Parsley, catnip, mint, orange mint, spearmint, chives, and cilantro.
And don't forget the rosemary, or the Italian and Greek oregano. So many choices to be found here!
Another newcomer to the garden center this past week which I find absolutely charming are these fun strawberry baskets.
These adorable baskets can sit on your patio or deck table as is. The plants will bloom and berry right in the basket, giving you an instant, edible centerpiece. When the plant is done for the season, you can transplant them to your yard where they will happily return next year.
Those are just a few of the arrivals this past week. As always at this time of year, new plants are showing up daily. Hope you'll stop by the garden center and check us out.
Be sure to stop by our Facebook page. Upload your favorite Garden Supply photos and enter a random drawing to win two free tickets to the upcoming Chapel Hill Garden Tour on April 17-18th. Show us your favorite plants you've planted from our garden center, your kids potting up their new tomato plants, or a shopping trip using our totes. We'd love to see! All photos uploaded between now and April 15th are eligible for the prize drawing.
Thanks so much for stopping by! We'll see you back here soon!
