Pike Nurseries: Ideal Father's Day gifts

Pike Nurseries' Melodie McDanal has some wonderful ideas for your Father's Day gift. For many of people, dad is the one who taught us how to garden. Here are some great Father's Day gift ideas:

Tree
 -- A tree is a great long-lasting Father's Day gift
 -- You can choose a tree based on your Dad's yard
   - For small yards or no yard, a Japanese Maple is a great option and can even be grown in a large pot
   - For larger yards, try a fruit tree like an apple or peach tree
 -- A tree is also a great gift for a new dad
   - He can plant it with his kid and watch it grow over the years

Blueberries
 -- Blueberries are a great gift because they keep giving with fruit
 -- They are very easy to grow and look great all year

Bird House – Bird Feeder
 -- For the nature lover, a bird house or feeder is a great gift option
 -- There are many different styles to choose from
 -- If you give your dad a bird feeder, don't forget to pick up a bag of Pike bird seed!

Garden Tools
 -- Make Playing in the Dirt easier with good quality tools
 -- A nice set of hand pruners is essential
 -- A pair of loppers makes trimming hard-to-reach areas much easier

Grill Accessories
 -- If your dad is a grill master, give him some fun grill accessories – you may even get a great meal out of it!
 -- Choose from pizza stones for the Kamado Joe, skewers and more

Gift Card
 -- You can always let dad choose his own gift with a Pike Garden Gift Card
 -- The gift cards are available in any denomination and never expire

Free Class: Don't Squirm Over Worms
 -- On Tuesday, June 18th at 10
 -- A fun class for kids that will teach them the benefits of red worms

    The notion of 'Keeping up with the Jones' is not new, but there is a new pressure coming at you. Peer pressure - whether you're 13 or 33 - is a powerful thing. Now throw in social media and you have what an Atlanta counselor calls 'Keeping up with the Jones' on steroids. And if you're not careful that can get costly.
