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!
