Welcome to Gardening with Creekside! Today, we have some exciting updates to share with you. First, our new production greenhouse is finally complete. Roger and the team have finished the construction part, and while there's still work to be done with electrical wiring and irrigation, we're eager to show you what it looks like now that it's finished.

But before we dive into the greenhouse tour, let's talk about our website. If you haven't visited Gardening with Creekside's new website yet, you're in for a treat. It's clean, user-friendly, and designed to provide you with a great shopping experience. When you visit the site for the first time, you might encounter a popup asking for your email. If you provide your email, you'll receive a 15% discount. And if you scroll to the bottom of the website, there's an option to input your mobile number to receive text messages and get a 20% discount. Rest assured, we won't spam you or sell your information; it's just an effective way for us to communicate with our valued customers.

Now, let's talk about what you'll find on our website. We offer a wide range of annuals, perennials, and shrubs. If you're interested in securing the best selection for 2024, you can place pre-orders. Please note that annuals and perennials will be shipped next year, specifically tailored to your growing zone. So, if you're in a warmer zone, you'll receive your plants first, while those in colder areas will get theirs a bit later.

Moving on to the shrubs, we have a fantastic selection. Roses, in particular, are a great option. The Rise Up Lilac Days rose is one of our new additions, with a beautiful lilac color. It can be used as a climbing rose, an upright rose, or a shrub rose, depending on your preference.

Another rose to consider is the Oso Easy Ice Bay, known for its white blooms. These roses are more compact compared to the Rise Up series, making them a versatile choice for your garden.

If you're looking for something unique, check out the Sweet and Low Spring Meadow. It's an evergreen shrub, perfect for shade gardens and resistant to deer. It's hardy and a great addition to your landscape.

Hydrangeas are also a wonderful choice, with options like Saratas and Mountain Hydrangeas. The color of these hydrangeas depends on your soil's pH level, ranging from pinks to purples to blues.

We also offer a variety of Crepe Myrtles, including the Center Stage series, known for its dark foliage and red blooms. These Crepe Myrtles are perfect for warmer zones.

And don't miss the Perfecto Mundo Aelas, which bloom multiple times a year, with beautiful double pink flowers. They stay compact and are ideal for cooler growing conditions.

Now, let's shift our focus to our new greenhouse. We've partnered with Atlas Greenhouse, a fantastic company in Georgia. Our greenhouse is a gutter-connected one, with three bays that act as a single unit. This design allows for easy expansion in the future.

Inside the greenhouse, you'll find concrete pads for machinery, gravel for plant placement, and an intricate system of fans, heaters, and exhausts to regulate temperature and airflow. We also have plans for inflatable tubes to provide insulation.

As for upcoming tasks, we're working on electrical and plumbing installations. It's all part of the process, and we're excited to continue this adventure at Creekside Nursery. Thank you for your support, and stay tuned for more updates. Have a great day!
