Wine & Design

Hello everyone!  Happy Monday!  I hope your weeks are off to a wonderful start.  I have a few bits of news to share with you today about some of our upcoming events this week down at Garden Supply. I hope you all can join us this Thursday evening for a few fun hours of Wine & Design.  Stop in between 6:00pm and 8:00pm and have one of our designers assist you with ideas on plantings for your spring containers. Bring yourself, a group of friends, or put together a little work outing. Wine and light snacks will be served. This event is free but sign-up is requested at (919)460-7747 or info@gardensupplyco.com.

And Dad's - Don't forget Mother's Day this year is May 9th. Bring your kids in on Sunday May 2nd between 1 pm - 4 pm and let them plant a summer blooming annual in a pot that they can decorate special, just for Mom.

We have so many stunning blooming plants available right now that would make wonderful gifts for that special mother or grandmother in your life.  We also have tons of fabulous and gorgeous gift ideas in the Greenhouse.

We also offer gift certificates in any dollar amount, and we have free gift wrapping services, as well!

Hope you can join us this week down at the garden center.  And I'll see you back here soon for more snippets from the garden.

Annual Spring Garden Party

Hello everyone!  Hope your weekends are off to a great start!  And what a beautiful weekend it is!  It's beginning to feel like Spring is arriving! And speaking of Spring, mark your calendars for next Saturday, March 13th as the kick-off day for Garden Supply's annual Spring Garden Party.  We are so excited to offer you a full week of events and activities this year. Festivities will begin Saturday morning at 10 am, with lots of fun for the entire family, including live music, free food, kids events, and more.

There's nothing like the wonderful food at a festival, right?  We think so, too!  Check out our great line-up for Saturday.  Mamma Mia's will be here from 11-3 baking pizzas in our very own outdoor brick oven.  We'll also have hots dogs and drinks, and Great Harvest Breads will be on-hand with yummy samples from their bakery.  Stop by and say hello to the folks at Shady Arbour Coffee and the Wine Merchant who will also be here will samplings from their shops.

Activities and fun for the kiddos include a planting station, face painting, games, bee-keeping activities and honey stick samplings. We also will have an art mural community project for the kids to add their special touches to, and we have a local high school senior coming to wow us with his duct tape creations.

We are also thrilled to be able to bring you some of our top, local gardening experts who will be on hand with demonstrations and all the answers to your gardening questions.

Multiflora Greenhouses will be on hand from 11-3 offering suggestions on bedding and container plants (annuals and perennials), decorative planters, floral and foliage plants, hanging baskets, and vegetables.  The folks from Wyatt Quarles will be available from 10-2 to answer your product questions on organic/chemical  gardening solutions.  And I Must Garden will be here from 10-2 with advice on organic animal repellents.

And that's not all!  We'll also have local artists here to share their talents with demonstrations, sales, and expertise.  The Cary Gallery of Artists will be doing painting demonstrations.  Nanci Tanton will be on hand with her photography and Linda Simpson will be sharing her jewelry designs.

And that's just Saturday!  We have lots more fun coming throughout the week.  Check back here for more schedules of events.  We can't wait to see you soon!
