The leaves are starting to change color and soon the nights will be cooler. This is the perfect time of year to plant your perennials. It is also time to plant your fall vegetable garden. We have just received our shipment of all the fall favorites including pansies and mums. Fall is the time of year to think about fertilizing and seeding the yard too. We have everything that you need for a beautiful lawn.
Due to popular demand we have expanded our home and garden shop. We now carry a wide variety of items perfect for gift giving or home and garden decorating. The fall selection has arrived and includes yard art, indoor décor, fairy lights, baby gifts and cards. Most of these are sourced from local vendors especially our food line.
June is here and things should be slowing down in the yard. The mad dash to clean and prepare the beds for planting is over. Now is the time for cutting back spent blooms from spring flowers and shrubs. Prune azaleas and camellias before the first of July to make sure that you have blooms next year. Main Street Lawn and Garden has a brand-new shipment of planters and a beautiful array of plants that will add the special finishing touches to your yard.
June is also when we pay tribute to all the wonderful dads in our lives. With Father’s Day approaching we have a wide variety of gift ideas for Dad. If your Dad likes to work in the yard, Main Street carries a large selection of power equipment by all the top manufacturers from lawnmowers to trimmers and weed eaters. If Dad is more of an outdoor type, we have knives, wildlife cameras and bird feeders. We have whimsical yard art, wind chimes and balloons for brightening up the yard. Our friendly staff can help you decide on just the right gift.
Gardeners are always busy. The weather is starting to warm and there is much to be done in preparation for the growing season. Now is the time to put out grass seed, fertilizer and lime. We have multiple varieties available depending on your lawn’s specific needs. This is also the time of year to prepare your garden and flowerbeds. Soil needs to be amended before planting with compost, sand or topsoil based on your soil composition and the type of plants you want to grow. Main Street has a wide variety of bagged items by Daddy Pete, Fox Farm and others including soil enhancers, mushroom compost, cow manure, nursery blend and planting mix.
This is a great time to plant your spring garden. Vegetables like broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, kale and spinach grow well in the cool weather as do herbs like sage, cilantro, parsley, lavender and oregano. Snapdragons, pansies, dianthus and violas also like this weather and will add a pop of color to your beds.
