Pergola Giveaway

The pergola giveaway that was held on Aug. 6 brought in a nice sized crowd to TMMLC. Our little lot was filled to the brim with 65 cars parked here and there. We were very thankful we had a tent up, because it decided to rain, and everybody crowded under there to stay dry. Besides giving away the pergola, we also gave away a Chiminea, Patina Fire Pit, Corinthian Wind Chimes, and more.

Fall is for Planting!

By Kyle B. Brown

Hello, I hope this post finds you well and enjoying the rain showers that we have been blessed with the past few days.  As the summer is winding down and fall is just around the corner, I want to take some time and remind you that the optimal time to get plant material in the ground is quickly approaching.  Fall provides the best time for planting any tree, shrub, or perennial.  During the fall, the cool temperatures and the lack of scolding sun rays greatly reduce the chance of transplant shock, which is the number one culprit of new plant installation death.  The fall planting window runs roughly from the middle of August until the beginning of October.  This allows your new plant to properly root in before old man winter rolls around.  Planting during this time will still follow the same rules of thumb for the planting process, also water and fertilizer properly.  Also, stop in the landscape center and check out the Plant Nursery and see the wide selection of trees, shrubs, and other plant material we have in stock!  Keep your eyes on our website for some upcoming plant specials as we get later into the season and remember that you can call in to the landscape center(814-696-1920) with any plant health question!

Also, register for our Grow-N-Go workshop, scheduled for this Saturday at 10am, where we will discuss the benefits of fall planting.  Click here to find out more about the event and register!
