We're less than a week away from July 4th, and that means you'd better get ready.  If you need some help prepping your pad for holiday guests and entertaining, the folks from Pike Nurseries can help.

Pike's own Melodie McDanal dropped by Good Day to share some tips! 

CLICK ON THE VIDEO ABOVE TO WATCH THE SEGMENT!

Here are the tips we shared on Good Day:


Fuel for the Grill
Propane Tanks: Get to make sure you have enough propane to get you through the 4th & the rest of the summer

Natural Lump Charcoal & Starter:  If you have a ceramic grill like the Kamado Joe or any type of charcoal grill, we recommend using natural lump charcoal.  It's 100% natural, so you're not infusing your food with the chemicals found in lump charcoal.  Nature charcoal also takes less to heat up – only about 10 minutes – and gives a more even heat.

Grill Accessories
Take your grilling to the next level with grill accessories:
Chick stand: This chicken stand works on any type of grill.  If you want to make "beer can chicken" you'd fill up the holder with a 16oz beer.  

Give your chicken even more flavor and add other ingredients like onions, hot peppers, or your favorite herbs.  Sage & rosemary are great for chicken.

Get Instant Color
If your patio or front door needs more color, get a pre-made container garden.  These ready-to-go container gardens were designed and planted by Pike Nurseries. Simply drop these gardens into your existing pots.  Pick up a festival red-white-blue container garden that even includes a flag.

Show Your Patriotism
USA Flag:  Get a fade resistant, sewn USA flag – 100% made in the USA.  Comes with a 5-foot aluminum pole and an adjustable bracket with 12 different positions.

Gazing Balls:  Use red, white & blue gazing balls throughout your garden.

This Weekend at Pike Nurseries
Free Hydrangea Class: Saturday, June 29th at 10 am
