Happy May Day Every Day!
Spring is finally here to stay with lots of color, fragrances, textures, and Wow factor throughout the garden center.
Mother's Day is less than two weeks ahead... We have lots of ideas for you. Starting with: Bring her to our annual Garden Party May 4th and see what she lays her eyes on! Will it be Hybrid Tea or Knock Out Roses, our new shipment of USA-made tuned windchimes, colorful hanging baskets, beautiful ceramic pottery, a gift certificate, a collection of perennials, or the hundreds of other plant and gift ideas?
In the nursery we have a great Japanese Maple collection in many sizes and price ranges. Magnolias, cherries, shade trees, redbuds, and other ornamental trees for your landscape garden! Colorful shrubs, both with foliage or flowers, such as hydrangeas, abelia, roses, edibles, gardenias, conifers, Encore Azaleas, and more. You will also want to check out the Drift Roses!

The other color side is annuals; we have hanging baskets, combo baskets, create your own bedding flats, container plants, and other summer heat wave annuals.
Veggies are still plentiful and it's the perfect time to grow your own food. Word has it that Carol Stein is going to offer a canning forum in June, so get those veggies growing! We have Bio-tone, Tomato-tone, calcium nitrate, and other fertilizers for your growing needs.
Herbs are looking fantastic and we have a great selection for all your cooking needs.

IN THE GARDEN
May is a good time to fertilize warm season lawns like bermuda and centepede. If you didn't get a pre-emergent down, you may want to use Fertilome Weed-Out weed and feed to control the weeds that are coming out now. If its been more than 6 weeks since you applied pre-emergent, you can re-apply that now too.
It's still time to get the vegetable garden going. Be sure to add compost like Black Kow cow manure or composted turkey manure, lime and fertilizer to the soil when tilling it up. We still have a great selection of vegetable plants and seeds, collapsable and sturdy tomato cages, and all kinds of garden markers for keeping up with your produce. Don't have room for a big garden? We have Earth Box garden kits perfect for growing fresh veggies right on your own porch or patio. We also carry the re-plant kits if you already have an Earth Box and the tomato cages that fit them.
We also have Easy Grow bags for your patio, deck, porch, apartment or condo gardens.
If you planted Impatiens last year and they died in June or July, do NOT plant these plants again for at least two years.
Pick up a bucket of Strawberries on Fridays, while they last.
Grab a free copy of Triangle Gardener magazine in the store.
Remember, we deliver and have bulk mulches, topsoil and organic compost.
