Plant Diagnosis and Identification
Are you unsure of what is wrong with your plant or even what it is?  Bring in a sample and the knowledgeable Shorty's Blue Team will do whatever we can to diagnose or identify your plant. We will provide you with answers to what your plant is and how to improve or provide suitable growing conditions.


Soil Testing 
Bring in a "coffee can" full of soil and one of Shorty's Blue Team can test the pH of the soil and visually check the consistency of your soil.  We will then provide you with some tips on how to improve your soil composition. 

We offer delivery service for all the items that we sell from bark dust to plants to fountains.  Delivery is available seven days a week.  Call Shorty's or stop by to set up a delivery.

Container Planting 
The Shorty's Blue Team has some amazingly skilled container designers.  If you do not have the time, patience or natural ability to create a beautiful container, we can do it for you.  Bring in your own container or choose one of our wonderful containers that come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  You or the designer can select plants that fit the site conditions and color palette that will enhance your home, garden and business.  If you would like to try your hand at creating your own beautiful container, we offer container classes on a consistent basis throughout most of the year.  Check the seminar page for the next container class.

Gift Cards
Gift cards are available in any amount at the cash register.  If you are unable to make it in to visit, you can purchase a gift card over the phone with a credit card and we can mail it to the lucky recipient.

Rental Equipment
We rent many of the tools you will need to put in a new lawn including water rollers, mulch spreaders, landscape rakes and fertilizer spreaders.  Ask about our free rentals if you purchase over $200 in lawn products.
