Bird-Friendly Gardening Workshop
|Bird-Friendly Gardening - Online Zoom Workshop|
Sat, July 25 at 10-11 am
With Tom Tribble, Audubon Society
Make your yard a haven for birds!
Birds today face serious threats from habitat loss and climate change. With increased development and population growth, there are fewer undeveloped areas for our migratory and resident birds to find food, shelter and a place to raise their babies. The single, easy action that individuals can take to help birds is to make their own yard more bird-friendly by planting native plants.
Join Tom Tribble of the Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society to learn about the native plants and actions you can take to make your yard a haven for birds. For over 100 years, Audubon has focused on making the world a better place for birds – Protect Birds and You Protect the Earth. Read more and RSVP...
- Please do not sign up more than once, limited attendees.
- Must be signed up by 2 pm Friday, July 24 to receive an invitation.
Sunflowers Are My Happy Plant

| Dog Days & Sarah's Water Garden|
|FROM WILMA: From July into August when Sirius (the Dog Star) rises with the sun, there are some of the hottest and most sultry days of the year. Ancients believed (incorrectly) the combination of the Dog Star and the sun contributed to the heat and referred to this time as “dog days”. It seems we are in the midst of “dog days” now.|
Ponds, fountains, and other water features add a calming presence to the garden especially on hot summer days and evenings. Granddaughter Sarah recently created a landscaped area with a flagstone path and water garden. Her parents helped - Joe did the backbreaking work of digging the pond and Susan helped with the pond design - but Sarah did much of the work. Sarah turns 18 years old in a few weeks...well done Sarah!
Marc along with other staff is available to assist with water garden plants/supplies, fish, etc. Our tropical water lilies are 50% Off this week!
Give Annuals a Bloom Boost!
|Are your annual flowers petering out? Reinvigorate them with a burst of fertilizer that encourages blooms ~ Ferti-lome 9-58-8. That big number in the middle represents the amount of phosphorus. Lots! Phosphorus encourages plants to produce flowers and also helps new plants root out. Available in 8 oz. and 3 pound sizes.|
Have your petunias stopped blooming? Cut petunias back a bit, fertilize, and you should have blooms again in a couple of weeks. Anything that is blooming continuously enjoys regular doses of fertilizer. Check the label for proper application rates and timing.
Tropical Water Lilies - 50% Off
|Tropical water lilies:|
- Are prolific bloomers
- Have exotic flowers
- Smell tantalizingly fragrant
- And they are 50% Off!
Creating a simple water garden is easy! Display these beautiful water lilies by filling a large leakproof bowl with water and you're done! Sit back and enjoy!
We have some beautiful glazed bowls displayed near the water plants.

Read more and buy tickets...
- Tips for making your cut flowers last in a vase
|Remember to keep your plants well-watered during summer days. Check hanging baskets and porch pots twice daily. Vegetables and your lawn need one inch of water per week.|
We haven't had much rain for days at the Garden Center, and we just got a nice downpour. Even so, the downpour was hard and fast. It probably did not soak in that deeply. In other words...a hard fast rain may not be enough to keep your plants healthy and thriving. Dry roots can cause diseases like powdery mildew and make your plants more suseptible to harm from insects and disease.
|Expanded Hours: Mon thru Sat: 9-6, Closed Sunday|
