It’s The Holidays!
IN THE STORE:
Educational Workshops and Monthly Community Seed Swaps are suspended through the Holidays and January to allow our coordinator, Marissa, to get some administrative projects done. Those projects include getting our ENTIRE inventory online! How exciting is that?! Soon you’ll be able to shop our store and pick up your order, easy-peasy! Plus it will make our inventory searchable on search engines like Google, which will (hopefully) bring us some more business and new people discovering us for the very first time!
Speaking of, if you haven’t already, TELL YOUR FRIENDS about us! We carry great pet & garden supplies, we have the best prices on bird seed for your feeders, and fantastic staff to help with your pest control, lawn, garden, pet problems, chickens & farm questions, and so much more!
Winter Gardening is here! Yes, we lucky Florida folks can garden year-round. The cool & cold weather makes certain crops, like lettuces, spinach, kale, and even root crops like turnips, parsnips, radishes, etc., taste SO good! If your Fall garden is still producing, that’s great, just plant your Winter stuff right in with it.
Work compost into the soil, and you might want to add mulch to cover the soil this time of year – it will help protect roots if it does get chilly. Add Shell’s 3-3-3 Organic fertilizer, and get growing! Check out our article in the Blog about what to grow in Winter. There’s also another article about other things to do in Winter when the weather isn’t so blazingly hot & uncomfortable, access it here.
Come into the store for the Garden Guide we’ve printed for you, letting you know what steps to take for this time of year.
Also, with the holidays right around the corner, you can’t go wrong with some succulent plant companions. We have a nice selection for an easy care way to bring a little greenery to your home and office. Grab a few and plant in a cute container for a quick lovely gift for someone special.
As usual, we carry the very best pet foods around, and at awesome prices. Diamond, Diamond Naturals, Diamond Grain Free, Taste of the Wild as well as Blue Buffalo are here for your dogs and cats. We have Purina and Manna Pro for your farm animals (chickens, horses, pigs, ducks…you get the idea), and great foods, treats, and supplies for just about every kind of exotic pet out there. We have a food to fit every animal’s needs and every owner’s budget to bring you the best nutrition for your money. Just ask us! We’re happy to help advise.
One of the greatest parts of the store is our bird seed area. We have bird seed for so many different kinds of birds, both pet birds and wild birds. We have cages, cage supplies, toys, food, & treats for your pet birds that they will LOVE. We also have wild bird feeders and bird houses too, so your wild birds can happily munch on some snacks and nest while you look on. Our staff can help you mix seeds to attract different kinds of birds to your yard, so you can experiment to find just the right combinations to attract beautiful birds and feed your inner bird-watching needs.
LIVE CHICKENS & RABBITS:
We have live baby chickens and everything they need for getting your fresh eggs daily. Also, baby rabbits (when available) and all of their needs as well.
We do sell great pre-built coops and rabbit hutches. We have bedding, food, waterers, cage and pen supplies, vaccines, and everything you need to care for your chickens and rabbits.
If you want to know what kind of birds we have right now, of course you can stop by or call us, but you can also check out our weekly chicken report right here. It is updated every Saturday for the previous week’s arrivals. If you want a specific bird you see online, we definitely suggest you call us to make sure we haven’t sold out in the week between the updates before you make the drive!
We have so much greatness in one local family-owned store, you should come check us out!

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.
