Harbor Garden Center

October Welcome

October is a month of transition at the garden center. We are moving from summer weather to the colder weather of fall. Even though it may seem that the gardening season is winding down, there are still many reasons to stop by our store. Let’s not forget about the 2nd biggest decorating “holiday” of the year. HALLOWEEN! We have hundreds of pumpkins in all sizes. We have bales of hay. We have corn stalks, mini pumpkins and gourds. There is still time to get your window boxes filled with mums and other beautiful fall plants. An application of fall lawn fertilizer and an application of lime will help to get your lawn ready for winter. Your shrubs and perennial bed also need to be prepared for winter. We have shrub covers, burlap for covering shrubs and Wilt Pruf spray to coat the leaves of your evergreens to protect those shrubs from the winter winds.

You still have time to plant Tulip, Daffodil and Crocus bulbs. These bulbs must be planted in the fall if you want them to flower in the spring. Stop in to see our selection of these and other spring flowering bulbs.

October is also the month when we get our shipment of Amaryllis bulbs. Paperwhite bulbs will also begin to arrive in October. Our bulb suppliers tell us that paperwhite bulbs will, again this year, be in short supply. Please plan ahead if you want Paperwhite bulbs for the holidays.

Soon it will be time to fill the bird feeders with wild bird food. You will want to check out our selection of bird feeders. Our prices on 20 and 40 lb bags of oil sunflower seed are incredibly low. Our prices on suet cakes are very reasonable as well. When it come time to fill the bird feeders, stop by and see all we have to offer.

October is also the month when we begin to transform our store into a Christmas decorating shop. If you have not stopped by our store for your Christmas Decorating needs, you should make us your first destination when late November rolls around.
