Spring is Here!

Fill your garden with colour

Spring is here so it is time to start getting out in the garden and preparing for the coming warmer weather. Your garden has likely taken a beating this winter with the snow and freezing temperatures so now is a good time to assess the damage and make plans for what you need to do to help it recover. You may need to prune some damaged trees or shrubs, or fertilize to help them recover.

Unlike many garden stores that close during the winter months our stores stay open all year. So if you need pruning supplies to do some winter cleanup be sure to stop by. Our stores are open 7 days a week. For our complete store hours click here.
