Gardening Tips from Tim Holcomb

Santa with Bag
Twinkling lights, gatherings with friends and family, and Church musicals seem to be every day events this time of year. We always say, "Take time to smell the roses" and this time of year we know it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season. That being said, be sure to keep Christ in Christmas this year! Share the love of Christ with an often forgotten friend or relative. Surprise a total stranger with a show of kindness. Beautify your lawn and garden and allow the whole neighborhood to enjoy the beauty.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas,
 Tim Holcomb

Listen to the wind play a melody for you...

You've seen sparkly wind chimes that clink and clank in the breeze. Well, you owe it to yourself to come see and hear the beautiful Corinthian Bells wind chimes. Their design is simple and elegant, however, their sound and tone is unbelievable. The slightest breeze generates a symphony of sounds that soothe the soul.

From the flowing vines of Mandevillas covered in large blooms to the bush or tree form Hibiscus, we have the tropicals you desire. More heat loving annuals are the Dragon Wing begonias, Lantanas, Wave Petunias, Vinca, and wax-leaf begonias.
We also have a huge assortment of summer flowering perennials. Check out the Daylilies, Cone flowers, Daisies, and Butterfly bushes. Click for Southern Living Top Ten plants for southern heat! Click here for info on our great HGTV plants!


Time for 
Step 3!  
Crabgrass Preventer plus lawn food 
Step 3, Fertilome Crabgrass Preventer plus lawn food, will give your lawn a slow steady feeding to keep it looking good.  Most importantly, it will stop additional crabgrass from sprouting for June, July, and August. Apply when the grass is wet or dry, but water in after application for best results.     Click here for more information about our 5 Step lawn program! 
Hummingbird Tips!

hummingbird feeder  They're Here!

Are they are your house? They can be.

These flying marvels are unafraid to come up close for your enjoyment. The trick is to make your home desirable for them.  

1. Attract them with plants. The more blooms, the better.

2. Provide feeders. Ideally an easy to clean bee proof feeder.

3. Provide nearby shelter - shrubs and/or trees.

4. Keep the ants away. Use our AntGuard!
