These plants are annuals in zone 7b, which covers middle Tennessee. If you are shopping outside of middle Tennessee, these plants may be hardy in your area.
Annuals go through their entire life cycle in one growing season. Because they have such a short amount of time, they typically grow very quickly. They offer lots of bright and beautiful blooms that last all season! When they have reached their end, you can gather seeds from the year’s flowers and plant them in your garden next year. Sometimes, annuals save you the trouble by self-seeding. These seedlings will grow into mature plants next season, which may make you think your annual is actually a perennial.
If you’re looking to enhance your home, houseplants are a perfect place to start! Not only do houseplants liven up your home, but they have also been proven to help clean toxins from the air and reduce stress. Martin’s plant nursery near you is dedicated to finding the best houseplants for your home. Our professional team can provide advice and recommendations for the best plants to fit exactly what you’re looking for, whether you want plants that won’t need your attention or plants that will keep your pets safe.

Houseplant Of The Week
Every Monday, tune in to our YouTube channel and our social media pages for our latest Houseplant of the Week! What houseplant should we feature next?
These plants are perennial in zone 7b, which covers middle Tennessee. If you are shopping outside of middle Tennessee, these plants may not be hardy in your area.
Perennials are great to include in your garden because instead of creating a whole new landscape design each year, you can plant your predictable perennials once and enjoy them for years to come. Typically, perennials will bloom only for one season each year and then go dormant. However, be patient. You will be rewarded next year when they return! Perennial plants that are native to your region offer the benefit of best supporting your local pollinators and the rest of your local ecosystem. Learn more about pollinator-friendly planting here!
Seeds & Bulbs
Growing something from a seed or bulb may seem more intimidating and overwhelming than planting a mature plant in your landscape, but they are actually very easy! Their packaging tells you the best time of year to start them based on average frost dates in your area. In middle Tennessee, the average date of our last spring frost is April 15 and the average date of our first fall frost is October 20. Don’t forget to grab a bag of Espoma® Organic Bulb-tone and Espoma® Organic Seed Starter Premium Potting Mix to help your seeds and bulbs grow strong!
Trees & Shrubs
If you’re looking for a arborvitae, hydrangea, or an apple tree, come see our Trees & Shrubs team! Fall is a great time to get trees into the ground. When temperatures get colder, the trees will focus on growing roots instead of leaves. This will give you stronger plants come springtime!Read More
Low Maintenance Trees
Trees are the perfect addition to your backyard. Especially if you are looking to implement more shade, privacy, or attract birds and pollinators. Many trees will provide nesting sites for birds and can add some life to your backyard. We have a wide selection of trees, but if you’re looking for trees that can survive in cold weather and require a little less maintenance, we would recommend maple, poplar, arborvitaes, or spruce trees. Keep in mind that these trees can grow to be very large and require a lot of space.
Flowering Trees & Shrubs
Flowering trees and shrubs are a great option to add some color and life to your backyard during the spring and summer months. These plants will attract pollinators to your yard as well as make nesting sites for birds. Pick up a gorgeous flowering crape myrtle, dogwood tree, magnolia tree, or hydrangea at Martin’s Home & Garden Today!
Low Maintenance Shrubs
Shrubs are a great way to add color and personality to your yard without taking up too much space. Available in a wide range of sizes, shrubs can be very helpful in adding some intermediate height between trees and smaller plants in your yard. Many shrubs bloom berries and flowers during the warmer months and also provide shelter and homes for birds. If you’re looking to add low-maintenance shrubs to your landscaping, Martin’s Home & Garden recommends laurels, hydrangeas, and holly. These shrubs grow very quickly and will bloom every year. They will grow in full or partial sun and need to be watered regularly in extreme heat.
Bagged Gravel & Sand
Gravel and sand can be very versatile in your garden! They are very functional while helping enhance the look of your landscape. Create a pathway with gravel, or use it fill in the gaps on a pathway you created with pavers. Gravel can also enhance water features: use gravel to cover the base of a fountain or fill the bottom of your water garden. Rock gardens are also very popular amongst gardeners wanting a low maintenance, water-wise landscape. All you need is sandy soil, gravel and stones of various sizes, and a selection of drought-tolerant plants. Even the smallest space can turn into a rock garden!
The light color of sand can add a wonderful contract to the darker color of your plants’ foliage. It can also be used carefully to amend heavy clay soil to improve drainage. Don’t use more than a 50:50 blend if you choose to amend your soil with sand.
Bagged Soil & Mulch
Tennessee gardening can be a challenge. Though our heavy clay soil is rich, sometimes it needs to be amended for many of the plants we want to grow. For containers or small landscaping projects, bagged soil and mulch may be a better option than opting for bulk amounts. One yard of soil is equal to about 18 1.1 cubit foot bags of soil. Whether you need a specialized potting mix for your African violet, something to use in your new hanging basket, or an all-purpose soil for any plant, Martin’s Home & Garden stocks anything you need!

Each is made using a specific, thoughtful recipe that doesn’t include sand or sawdust. EarthMix products are made and packaged in Nashville by Bates Nursery.

Controlling Wildlife In Your Garden
Wildlife is fun to watch, but we might not want them to munch on our carefully tended gardens, nor do we want to endanger our pets. We have several pet-safe products that will help repel various animals from plants. Because animals are adaptable, it is a good idea to change the deterring product occasionally so they don’t get used to one particular product.
Applying Chemicals Safely
Before applying any chemical to your garden, always read the label completely first. The label will tell you how to properly and safely use, store, and dispose of the product. It’s important to know how to properly handle your chosen chemical to keep yourself and your family, pets, and local pollinators safe. Check out our YouTube video on proper chemical use around pollinators.
Fertilizing during a plant’s growing season is an important part of keeping your indoor and outdoor plants happy and healthy. We carry a wide variety of plant foods and fertilizers from Espoma® Organic, Ferti-lome® and more. From general all-purpose plant foods to use all around your garden or a fertilizer specifically formulated for your orchid or bromeliad, there’s something for every plant to help them grow bigger and better!
