You know that feeling when you are standing in a gardening supply store and you have exhausted your supplies. You reach for the next bag of seeds or that tub of soil, but before you can grab it the cashier is calling out "Your order is ready". Or when you get there you realize that they have run out of the one type of fertilizer that you need. Or when you see a display of beautiful peppers and you are standing in line to buy them, but before you can decide which is the best flavor, another set of people gets called on to see that they have run out of pickles. The Garden Store is not the place to go to find these kinds of things, they would be better off at a local farm market or from an online retailer.
But the Garden & Farm Store in Johnson City TN is one of those places that you cannot pass up. If it was your wife's birthday or just your anniversary, visit The Garden Store and say hello to your new Gardener friend. Chances are that she will bring you great love and joy. This store has more than two hundred different types of seeds, plants, veggies, flowers, fruit and everything else you could possibly want or need. They carry all of the seasonal vegetables that you could think of and more.
When you go into The Garden Store you will see a large section devoted to seeds, weeding kits and everything else you would need to start your very own garden. There are sections on everything from tomatoes to herbs to fruit trees. If you are new to gardening or just have no idea what kind of plants are best for your area there is a beginners' area where you will find an informative catalog with pictures and descriptions to help you choose. Once you have decided what you would like to plant and how much space you have, you can check out the gardening supplies that are available in the catalog.
Once you have everything that you need in one place, you can start planting. You can either go in the store or pick up the seeds at a local nursery. If you want to get a jump start on your gardening you can buy some starter plants in the catalog and then plant them yourself. The good thing about buying seeds and plants in one place is that you can go to any of the stores and get what you need.
One of the biggest things about growing your own vegetables is that they will taste better than grocery store tomatoes. Even the ones that have been sitting around for a while tend to be a little bit sour. That is why it is important to keep them properly hydrated until you get them home. When you get them home make sure to water them thoroughly. When you water them too much you will drown them and end up wasting a lot of food.
If you are having a hard time choosing between the two places that you can go to get seeds and plants, you can ask one of the associates at the store for advice. He may even be able to tell you which type of garden you should have based on the kind of soil and weather conditions you have in your area. This is a great way to make your garden design decisions based on what is best for you and your family.
