We all learned a lot of lessons in 2020, including what to do and what not to do when faced with disruptions in our normal way of life.  Being more self reliant has become essential to many folks looking for a little peace of mind and the easiest, most affordable and most essential way to prepare is one that is centuries old and driven by nature itself – Vegetable Gardening.

Rewarding in its own right, gGardening has taken on an even more important role as a way to provide your very own food source – and a delicious and nutritious one, at that!   

Vegetable gardening is enjoying a surge in popularity as more and more folks turn to growing their own veggies as not only a food source, but as a source of enjoyment.  And thanks to new innovations in the industry, lack of yard space is no longer a problem.  Container vegetable gardening is so popular, whether you grow a few favorites in a small container, or a larger crop in a bigger above-ground set-up.   

Evergreen of Johnson City offers a full supply of vegetables, ranging from staples like broccoli, tomatoes, peppers, beans, okra, squash, peas, cucumber, watermelon, onions and more…to more specialized tastes like rutabaga, spaghetti squash, figs, rhubarb and kohlrabi – even fruits, too, like strawberries and blueberries!  Most are available as plants and as seeds, too. 

When it comes to growing vegetables in this area, no one has more experience than the folks here at Evergreen of Johnson City – and our advice and suggestions are always free for the asking!  We don’t just sell the vegetable plants and the products needed to grow a bumper crop – we are actually vegetable gardeners ourselves!  We and our families have been growing vegetables in East Tennessee dirt for several decades and we know firsthand what works and what doesn’t – in other words, we know what you WON’T find on the label! 

The plants are inexpensive and plentiful here at EJC, and when you add in some Daddy Pete’s Composed Cow Manure with Garden Pro Topsoil, you’ll be amazed at well your vegetables respond.  Finally work some Fertilome Gardener’s Special into the soil when planting and our experts promise downright remarkable results!
