We live for DIY projects (especially) during the holiday season! There are few things that create more holiday cheer than getting your hands dirty + making your own decor. This season we’re making our own holiday wreaths with live greens! Want to try it with us? Check out this easy DIY project that will have you feeling just a little bit jollier!
Nothing gets us into the holiday spirit like a little DIY project. While it's easy to go out and buy any and every holiday gizmo and gadget out there, we like to go out into nature and get our hands a little dirty to create our own one-of-a-kind live wreaths. Interested in creating one yourself? Give it a try!
International Dog Day came along this week and photos of man and their best friends spread on social media like wildfire. We love dogs (and cats) but we're all about our fir babies (not our fur babies) right now. Why? For one, the fall is the best time of year to plant trees and shrubs to promote healthy root growth during milder temperatures. So give us a minute and let us to do a little show and tell before winter is among us and you're out in your yard with the scissors looking for trees and shrubs to trim for arrangements and wreaths. Check out the slideshow below to see eight fir trees and other evergreens we think make great choices to plant for both landscapes and winter cuttings.
Good morning everyone! Happy Monday! Here's wishing you a great beginning to a new week. And it's a very exciting week at Garden Supply. Our annual Spring Garden Party begins in just 6 days, on Saturday March 13th at 10 a.m. Be sure and mark your calendars because you guys are not going to want to miss this! We can't wait to see you there. And in the mean time, we have tons going on down at the garden center. New plants are arriving daily and the Greenhouse is full to bursting with beautiful spring and Easter decor. Take a look at this glorious shipment of Variegated Winter Daphne that has just come in.
This lovely plant is noted for its fragrance, which carries long distances and can often be smelled before you even see the plant in early spring. The flower buds are purple and as they open will reveal an almost white center which is very beautiful.
It is an evergreen, so will keep its leaves year-round. The leaves are decorative, as well, in dark green with white edges. It is very dense and has a rounded form that will grow from 2 to 4 feet tall and about 2 to 4 feet wide. This particular shrub is said to be one of the best of its kind. With its smaller size it would work well around patios or in a small yard. It is hardy to zones 6 to 9. If you like fragrance, this would fit the bill!
If you're looking for a burst of color and greenery, we've got you covered. The Greenhouse is filled with a wide array of flowers and plants that are sure to please. We've got pansies, orchids, begonias, tulips, hyacinths, hydrangeas, cyclamens, ranunculus, and primroses in full bloom. It is absolutely magical in here.
While you're in the Greenhouse, be sure to check out our collectible Penny McAllister figurines. They are guaranteed to bring a spring smile to these last lingering days of winter.
Penny McAllister's whimsical and sweet collections bring new charm to folk art. The sewing bug bit Penny at the tender age of 5. Nearly 50 years later, the former elementary school librarian has woven her passion for folk art into a dream occupation, making paper mache creations full of wit and whimsy.
