Welcome to Gardening with Creekside! In this week's nursery tour, we have a bustling day ahead of us. First, we'll take you on a tour of the nursery, and then we'll head up to production to show you the progress there. Today, I'm on my own because my colleagues had to go get haircuts.

Here at Creekside Nursery in Dallas, North Carolina (Zone 7B), we are a retail Garden Center and grower. We sell the plants we grow directly to our customers who visit us locally and from all over the country. Our opening hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays, 9 AM to 3 PM.

Currently, we have a fantastic deal for August. We're offering a buy one, get one free promotion on perennial hibiscus, particularly the Summerific series. These hardy plants, rated for zones 4 to 9, produce stunning 7 to 8-inch blooms. We have varieties like Spinderella, Edge of Night, Starry Starry Night, Berry Awesome, Holy Grail, Valentine's Crush, and Lilac Crush. They thrive in full sun, are deer resistant, attract pollinators, and love water.

Moving on, we have other beautiful plants like Perfecto Mundo Azaleas, including the double pink variety. These Azaleas are hardy in zones 6B to 9, re-bloom throughout the year, and are 2 to 3 feet tall and wide.

We also showcase Monarda Bee Balm, a native perennial adored by pollinators. Alliums, ornamental onions, are another highlight with their unique blooms, and they're deer-resistant.

Now, let's talk about Unique Stone products. Unique Stone offers historic replicas, and we have an August order arriving soon. You can also place special orders for our November delivery, making them great Christmas presents for gardening enthusiasts.

Our Aqua Pots, self-watering containers from Proven Winners, come in various colors and sizes. These are excellent for gardeners with limited space, mobility issues, or vacation homes.

Lastly, we head up to the construction zone in our nursery, where we're making exciting progress. We have three gutter-connected greenhouses in the works, with one being brand new. They'll provide us with ample growing space and improved circulation. The new greenhouse will have roll-up fronts and backs for better ventilation.

We're also making adjustments to the grading and drainage to ensure proper water flow. The retaining walls and French drains will help manage water efficiently.

In conclusion, we appreciate your continued support and hope you enjoy our nursery tour updates. Stay tuned for drone footage showcasing the entire project. Thank you for being a part of Gardening with Creekside!
