You can’t look anywhere without getting hit in the face by a pop of color. Too much to list here, you really have to come see the beauty for yourself!

Tomatoes and Peppers

Tons of tomatoes and peppers are here! You will have a blast picking through our many varieties. Determinate, indeterminate, patio, and heirlooms. There is something for everyone. You know we plant early here in San Antonio to get the best and longest crop. Pot these up in the next size pot and when the soil warms a little more, they’ll be strong and ready to move into the garden. Check out some tips from Keith Amelung, our heirloom tomato go-to guy. He’s offered his notes on successfully growing tomatoes. Container-Tomato-Tips   Tomato-Tips

Lawn Products

It’s that time of year. Our lawns are waking up and we need to give them what they need. Lawn fertilization is about to be on everybody’s mind. A healthy, fed lawn is your best defense against pesky weeds and disease. Come grab your bag of Rainbow Gardens 19-5-9 premium fertilizer which is specially formulated for our region. Guess what? You can also use it in your garden and vegetable beds. Prefer organic? Pick up a bag of Texas Tee, and you lawns will be thanking you. Grab a few bags of mulch while your here to help keep weeds at bay, retain soil moisture and regulate soil temperature. We have multiple varieties so you are sure to find something that suits your needs.
