The Grow Show
I cant believe how much I didn't even need to know about growing. The staff at The Grow Show gave me so much insight into my newly started project. Every employee I have encountered on each visit, not only were incredibally knowledgable, but patient and eager to meet my needs. I was quite impressed with the vast invetory as well. This store is certainly a one-stop-shop for all your growing needs

Abbott's Landscape Nursery
It's so nice to go to a nursery that is not in a asphalt parking lot. I love the old barns and the beautifully displayed plants. I was looking for a plant for my shady back yard, the Abbott's staff showed me my many options, they were so helpful. I had no idea I would have so many choices I ended up with a beautiful Sikes dwarf oakleaf hydrangea and some Sweet Woodruff to plant under it. It is such a big and beautiful plant, can't wait till it turns color this fall and blooms next spring. They offer installation and delivery but they loaded it into my car for me since I love to get my hands in the soil. If you're looking for great selection of healthy plants you really need to check out Abbott's.
Tips & Advices
A plant guarantee covers the buyer that if a plant doesn’t survive the guaranteed amount of time (usually one year, but sometimes up to 5), the plant will be replaced. This does not cover annuals, which have a life cycle of only 1 year.
How often to water a grass lawn depends on the climate, the type of soil that surrounds your property, and how deep the root system of your grass grows. A general rule for watering is: every day during summer in warm climates. This rule can be modified if lawns are older, or the climate cooler. For mature well-rooted lawns, deeper but less-frequent waterings are recommended as being healthier than daily 15-minute rinses.
Fruit trees should be watered different frequency of times depending when they were planted. Younger trees, up to the second growing season, should be watered twice a week. Make sure to give up to 1 full gallon of water weekly to newly planted trees during their growing season, and more when it’s gaining  eaves. Once the tree reaches mature fruit-bearing stage, waterings can be cut back, as the roots are sunk and can find ground water.
The question of when to plant fruit trees really depends on climate. The general rules are: You should not plant fruit trees when the ground is frozen, when the peak daytime temperature is more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit, or when the forecast shows extreme weather (i.e. a tornado warning). Aside from those rules, the suggested planting times are either fall (which most people recommend) or spring (for bare-root trees).
There are many kits sold on the market that measure soil pH levels. Dyes, test strips, and electronic pH meters are all formulated to assist the home gardener. Many people choose to simply shake up soil and distilled water, and then measure the pH with a hand-held meter However, some people consider this method not very useful, and suggest using a lab for greater accuracy.
