Spring is Here!

It’s time to start planting your garden!

It seems like March came in like a lamb but may go out like a Lion this year. But the rains we are having now will help add moisture t the soil making it easier, and better, to plant your garden. This is perfect weather to plant trees, shrubs, perennials and spring annuals like the Belarina Primula, Bellis Daisy, and Cineraria shown below.

If you don’t want to get outside quite yet there are many gardening tasks that you can do indoors to prepare for spring. You can purchase seeds for your flower or vegetable garden. You can also start your Begonia tubers indoors for summer blooms.

Our stores are open seven days a week. For our complete store hours click here.

Camelia sasanqua ‘Winter’s Snowman’

When Camellias are young they apprecaite being protected from cold winter winds so plant them against a wall or fence.
