Is spring really spring without your favorite garden center?
We have been serving Hampton Roads’ needs for over 75 years with our expertise, gardening advice, and unique plant material. So, we definitely know what you need to make your garden pop this season. To help make the process even easier, we have collected some spring tips that you can check off your to-do list this national gardening month.
One of the most fabulous aspects of spring is the wide variety of blooms and foliage that we see coming into the garden center everyday. In houseplants, we get most excited about the fern shipment full of bright green foliage as far as the eye can see. Ferns seem simple, but are they really?
One of the most important aspects of spring that is often overlooked is mulch! Keeping your garden beds mulched not only looks good but helps your plants and trees from attracting pests and disease throughout the years. Spring is a great time to re-mulch your beds because you are also planting up new annuals and even redoing your landscape altogether.
Spring is coming into bloom and that means that our beloved McDonald Garden Markets will be starting up in a neighborhood near you! Each spring, our Markets provide a piece of the plants, products, and education that our year-round locations have to offer. As we enter our 12th season, we have asked our owner, Mark Anderson, for his perspective on our Garden Markets.
Spring is on the horizon and we are gearing up for our favorite season of the year here at the garden center. As these cooler months warm-up, it is important to prep for spring blooms and edible gardens by knowing the right steps to achieve the perfect spring garden.
