Deals to Share

Good evening everyone and happy Monday to you!  I hope your weeks are off to a wonderful start. We have a couple of special deals going on this week at Garden Supply that I am excited to share with you. It's hot outside, that's true, and gardening might not be tops on your to-do list right now, but these deals are too good to miss! First off, Keith was able to find a fabulous deal on B-Grade mulch that we are happy to be able to pass along to you, our treasured customers.  If you are needing to mulch your large natural areas or playgrounds, this is the special for you.  Now thru August 15th you can get this mulch for just $10 per yard. And to make it even "sweeter",we are offering free delivery in Cary, Apex, and Morrisville. ($20.00 delivery elsewhere). Now that's a deal!

Another deal you won't want to miss is our 50% markdown on all last minute summer annuals. Freshen up your bedding areas and container gardens with a pop of bright color that will last until fall, and enjoy spectacular savings.  We still have lots of fresh and beautiful plants to choose from.

And for those of you who may have missed out on our Gardener's For the Cure drive earlier this summer, it's not too late to get in on the great deal we have going.

We are still offering a 12% discount card good on ALL purchases at Garden Supply through the end of the year for every $100 or more donation made to the Komen Foundation. We also have our adorable team tees available for $10.

In other news, Fall and Halloween decor items are arriving daily to the Greenhouse. Come check them out because these goodies tend to head out the door about as quickly as they come in.

Thanks so much for stopping by everyone!  Hope to see you all soon!

Lawn and Garden Care for April

Good morning everyone!  What beautiful weather we are having this week.  I don't know about you, but these spring-like temperatures are making me want to get out in the garden and get my hands dirty!  And with the weekend fast approaching, now is the perfect time.  If you have been bit with a similar bug, here are a few lawn and garden tips to keep in mind for the month of April. Fescue lawns will greatly benefit from a dose of Fertilome Weed Out which will kill any germinated weeds in the lawn.  Two applications may be necessary before temperatures steadily reach 90 degrees.  Be sure to apply ONLY to lawn areas, as it will damage plants and trees.  Additionally, now is the time for a second application of Hi Yield Crabgrass control.

Now is also the perfect time for mulch renewal around trees and shrubs.  Not only does mulch supress weed growth and help retain moisture in the soil, it just looks good.  Just be careful not to overdo it.  About 3 to 4 inches of mulch is enough for a shrub bed or under a tree.  Make sure the mulch doesn't gather around the base of the tree and touch the bark.  This could invite rot damage and problems.

Mulch options at the garden center include shredded hardwood mulch and bark nuggets in bags, and pine needles in bushels, to name just a few.  We also offer triple shredded hardwood mulch in bulk.  We have a full menu and sample jars of all our mulches, composts, and landscape materials at the front desk in the Greenhouse to help you with your selection.  Delivery and mulch installation are available.  Call for details.

At Garden Supply, we have everything you need to get your yards in tip-top shape this spring.  We are here 7 days a week and are ready to assist you in achieving the perfect lawn and a beautiful garden.  Come talk to our experts. You'll be glad you did.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy gardening!
