Enter our Pet & Garden Lovers Photo Contest!

If you are familiar with Edward’s Garden Center at all, you know we not only love plants, flowers and trees, but animals too! Our pets are our pride and joy. We love sharing them with our guests and we love to spend time with them whenever we can. We also love to help the animals at Blue Chip Animal Farm in Dallas.

Edward's Garden Center Facebook Contest

Enter your pet and garden into our Facebook Contest!

To celebrate our love of animals and plants, we are holding a contest. We are calling all pet and garden lovers to enter! Here are the details.

The contest is two part.

Part 1
Take a picture of your pet or pets enjoying their favorite part of your yard or garden. Does Buddy like to lay under the Chinese Maple Tree? Does Misty like to roll in your flower beds? Maybe their favorite spot is on the bench with you. Where ever it is, take a picture and post it on our Facebook page. Part one entries must be received by 8 pm August 30, 2015. Click here to enter.

Part 2
Once all of the photos are posted to our Facebook page, we will out them all into a photo album and hold a “Cutest Picture” Contest. You can share the album and tell all your friends and family to vote for your pet and garden.

A winner will be chosen randomly from the entries in part one. Another winner will be chosen based on the highest number of votes for part two of the contest. Winners will each receive a $50 gift card to Edward’s Garden Center.

Make sure you enter and share the contest with your friends!

Get sprucing, spring is on its way!

It seems the weather in NEPA is finally breaking! Temperatures above 40 and into the 50s, who remembers what those feel like? The weather warming up means spring is on its way and you need to start thinking about getting your garden ready to plant.

Dust off those gardening tools! Spring is coming.

Dust off those gardening tools! Spring is coming.

Our friends at Espoma gave us some great spring cleanup tips to pass along to you. We threw in a few of our own too.

  1. Remove dead plants that didn’t make it and any debris that may have waited out the winter in your garden beds.
  2. Remove dead or diseased branches from trees and shrubs by cutting at a 45º angle with pruners.
  3. Armed with your pruners, cut flowering perennials to 4-5” and trim ornamental grasses to 2-3”.  Just like haircuts make hair grow faster and healthier, pruning plants does the same.
  4. Now that the ground has thawed, scoop up a small handful of soil to test. You can bring it to your favorite Garden Center (hint hint) to be tested for deficiencies and overages.
  5. While walking around your yard, visualize how you want it to look this year. Then sketch it out and bring it to the Garden Center. Our experts can help you plan the whole thing and we will even deliver your plants to your home.

We know we don’t need to convince you to get out in the garden and get started. We just want to keep inspiring you so that you can keep inspiring us with the great ideas and smiling faces you bring into the Garden Center!

We’re ready to get started! Now we just need Mother Nature to cooperate 🙂

P.S. Don’t forget to visit our Facebook page and enter our contest! Correctly guess how many animals live at the Garden Center and you could win a $50 gift card.
