Mid-Seventies in the middle of August? Scattered rain showers? This August has given us a taste of fall. Take advantage of fall like weather and start your fall early! Fall planting? Go ahead! Sow grass seed? Start early September. Take these rare opportunities to come on by Holcomb Garden Centers and soak in the color and freshness that flowering plants provide. Be sure to call and sign up for one of our Fall Lawn Classes. If you look closely you can almost see fall from here!
You've got questions and Holcombs has the answers!

For the largest turnips possible, try Holcomb's "Just Right" Turnip seed. Even when they get big, they stay crisp and tender. One turnip can grow to several pounds in size. That's a US Quarter in front of this Just Right Turnip!

P Allen Smith and Tim Holcomb
This past week, Susie and I traveled to our nation's capital to attend the meeting of Independent Garden Centers. One of the mornings we had the opportunity of having breakfast with P Allen Smith and we discussed his collection of Proven Winner plants. P Allen Smith is the host of the PBS show "Garden Style" and a fourth-generation horticulturalist. Holcombs offer many of these through out the year and if you click on our picture you can see the whole collection. Check it out, there are lots of great tips and ideas in it.
