What’s In Store Now?
It’s Winter! Here’s what’s going on:
Garden: Now is a great time to be growing crops that can take the cold. Kale, greens, spinach, onions (growing vidalias from the pre-order sale in the fall?), leeks, strawberries (did you get yours during our pre-order sale last summer?), potatoes, cabbage, lettuce, turnips, beets, and more. Just ask what you can plant this time of year and we’ll set you up! For fertilizing, use organic fertilizers or nutrient-rich compost only, other chemical fertilizers are a bit too strong and will encourage new leaf growth, which is dangerous for the plant during frost season. Also, while it’s cool outside, it’s time to clean, repair, and replace garden tools, build or repair helpful structures like trellises, bean towers, raised beds, and scrub out any planting containers you might use in the Spring. That way they’re ready to go when you are! Sweet potato pre-orders are going on right now, check out our shop to see those https://shellsfeed.com/shop. Finally, we suggest you pre-order your Nolo Bait for those pesky grasshoppers that eat entire gardens in a matter of days. Here’s the link to it: https://shellsfeed.com/shop/pre-orders/nolo-bait-pre-order/ .
Poultry: We (always) have chicks in store! Come on in and see what we have this week! You can also follow our social media posts, look for the hashtag #ChickenReport to see what’s new. Recently added, our Chicken Report is right here on the website! Link: https://shellsfeed.com/chicken-report/ . Also, we have 2 styles of pre-built chicken coops that we assemble and you can take home! Check those out when you come in. We carry all manner of chicken products, from building a brooder to feed and scratch and protein treats (mealworms!) and so much more.
Pets: New Organic and Natural dog treats came in! We’re excited about having more yummies for the pups in our lives. Also, our dog houses have been coming in pretty regularly, however we must say, they are gone just as soon as one comes in. We carry Diamond and Blue Buffalo brands of food, among others. We have pet food for every pet’s need and every owner’s budget. Ask our informed and friendly staff for assistance if you’re looking to change up your pet’s diet. Also, we have some new colorful cages for your small furry friends (like hamsters/sugar gliders/guinea pigs/etc). As always, we carry a wide selection of bird cages, toys, treats, and foods.
Wild Birds: We have the BEST selection and prices on bird seed in town! If you are passionate about our feathered friends in the wild you MUST stop in and see our selection of pre-packaged seed, and also, we have bulk seed so you can make CUSTOM seed mixes that attract different kinds of birds to your feeder! Speaking of feeders, winter is a great time to add a couple more feeders to the garden, cool weather means that birdies need more food to stay warm. Plus, since we had the hurricanes come through, we have a few different species of birds hanging out, so try a few new mixes and see just what appears at the feeders!
In the late summer of 1961, Shell’s Feed and Garden Supply, Inc. opened the doors of the now locally famous Tampa feed and garden supply store without even so much as a cash register! Charles Shell, Founder, Shell’s Feed and Garden Supply, Inc. Tampa Nearly a decade prior, the dream of a man who at once decided to make a better life for himself and his family, not only came to fruition, but succeeded beyond imagination. Shell’s Feed and Garden Supply has become a household name to many in and around the Tampa Bay area and has been family owned and operated since opening day.
