Caring for Your Fresh-cut Christmas Tree
When selecting your tree, you need to know the optimal time to purchase and what’s okay (and not) with needle drop. In caring for your tree, you need to know when and why it needs a fresh cut as well as the do’s and don’ts for watering and setting up. A transcript of this video is available in The Buzz Blog.
Caring for Your Living Christmas Tree
Sean highlights the critical things you need to know if you choose to have a living Christmas tree indoors.
Things you need to keep in mind… The tree must acclimate to warmer temps before coming inside. It should be inside for no more than 7 days, tops. It needs to acclimate to cooler temps before moving outdoors. Watch the video for all of the deets! A transcript of this video is available in The Buzz Blog.

Sean’s observation is that people have a tendency to NOT touch these in the fall, right when they should. Sean says NOW is the time to prune them. Why? Unlike the mopheads, the Paniculatas only flower on new growth. So the more you prune them back, the more growth you’re...Read More

It isn’t enough to just buy plants and tools and all the stuff it takes to practice the art of gardening. You need somebody to talk to, somebody in touch with the earth. At The Gardener’s Center, you’ll find such people.

And if you need more help after you get them home, we’re here to give you that, too. Our goal is simple. We want to make you so good at gardening that it becomes second nature. Then, together, we can let the good times grow.
