The Fever is Rising

Now open Sundays Noon-4pm!


You can feel it.  Pulses are quickening.  Pupils are dilating.  Nostrils are flaring.  Senses are heightened.  Urgency is increasing. Questions are asked. Answers are forthcoming.  Spring is approaching. The fever is rising.


The weather is improving.  The days are longer.  The time has changed.  Business hours expanded.  Inventory is arriving.  Merchandise is displayed.  Tags are attached.  Coffee consumed.  Trucks are unloading.  Aisles are swept.  Aisles are swept again, and again.  Flagging tape received. Sold tags procured. Trucks are still unloading.  The fever is rising.


Questions are many.  Expertise is available.  EarthMix® is ready. Trucks are unloading.  Pottery abounds. Boxwoods are hedging. Topiaries are not normal.  Edibles are yummy. Blueberries are best. Fruit trees: fabulous. Tomatoes are few. Cool season veggies are now.  The fever is rising.


Perennials come back. Japanese maples strike awe. Camellias are charming. Conifers are colorful.  Magnolias are magnificent. Laurels are not for resting on.  Hollies are berried. Statuary is low maintenance. Bathing facilities for birds available. Kneeling pads prevent knee pain.  Organics make everything nice.  Checkouts are new.  Trowels are available for every occasion.  More coffee consumed.  More trucks unloaded.  The fever is rising.


You will see many recognizable faces.  You will see new faces.  You might even see my old face.   You need to take photos.  Photos of your landscape and garden, that is.  Please bring them along.  We want to help you make good gardening decisions…the first time, every time.  We’ve been doing this a while.  This is our 87th year.  We appreciate the opportunity! And yes, the fever is rising!


We are now open Sundays from Noon until 4pm.  Our business hours are currently 8am to 5pm Monday through Saturday, additionally.  We have nearly completed all renovations to our new checkout area; we think you’ll enjoy the more spacious shopping.  We have also increased the number of checkouts to facilitate faster processing of your purchases.  Another truck just pulled in.  The fever is rising.


Note: there is more traffic than usual on Whites Creek Pike; I-24 detour expected to end Monday March 18.
