Welcome! Now let’s talk about gardening!

I’d like to thank you for visiting our new and much-improved website.  I hope you enjoy the layout and find it informative and inspiring.  I know I am inspired to make this the best season yet.  We promise that Clear Creek Gardener can motivate you to try something new with your garden this year…..maybe it’s deciding to start some herb seeds in pots, growing fresh tomatoes and peppers, planting perennials that will attract good pollinators into the garden, planting a new tree, or deciding that you’re going to get some help it remodeling a tired landscape. Just writing about Spring makes me long for March, buds, blooms, and flowers.

Though it’s February and Punxsutawney Phil is predicting 6 more weeks of winter, it’s never to early to come up with a good gardening plan.  Here at the garden center, we will be carrying a wide variety of heirloom garden seeds that are guaranteed non-GMO and open pollinated. We currently have Cat Grass, Cat Mint, Sweet Peas, and an array of Beans and Cowpeas.  I have thoroughly enjoyed growing different beans in the last few years.  They are some of the easiest plants to sow directly into the soil and to get a heavy yield from your efforts.  What’s even better is the fruits of your labor are dried on the vine, and you can enjoy them at your leisure. I highly recommend them.

Our Tomatoes, Squash, Melons, Pumpkins, Corn, Peppers, Peas, Leafy Greens, Herbs and Flower seeds will be arriving within the week. I’m already getting my potting and seed station set up!

Did you know that it’s the perfect time for planting a tree?  Installing a tree right now will give your roots a head start before the hot summer is upon us.  A healthy tree is a tree that has roots penetrating deep into the soil and with proper planting and adequate irrigation, you can achieve success.  We have many many landscapes ready trees to choose from.  If you’re looking for an interesting tree that offers seasonal interest we’ve got Red Maples, Bur Oaks, Bald Cypress, Dura Heat Birch, Krauter’s Vesuvius Plums, Flowering Cherries, Crape Myrtles, Golden Rain Trees, Japanese Maples, Honeylocusts, Catalpas, and many more.

Maybe you’re looking for a fruit tree.  We’ve got Arkansas Black Apples, Pink Lady Apples, Contender Peaches, and Crabapples just to name a few.  Are you wondering how in the world you will get your tree planting if you can’t even dig a hole in this Arkansas rocky soil?  Let the experts help.  We’ve got the labor, the right tools, and the knowledge on how to plant your trees. If we don’t have a tree you’re looking for in stock, please let us know and we can order it for you.

Spring really is right around the corner, so get a jump start on it.  The days are definitely getting longer and I’m starting to see flowers buds swelling on trees and shrubs.  Our chickens are also laying eggs again, and that’s always a good sign that Spring is approaching.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or come by the garden center. Remember a garden is a friend you can visit anytime!

Happy Gardening,
