It’s beginning to look like Fall
IN THE STORE:
Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic our store activities have been completely cancelled until further notice.
We will be moving to an online class format as soon as that content can be planned and created. Marissa is working really hard on that, so stay tuned!
We can still answer your questions and help you get what you need for the problem you’re having, but the best way to have garden questions answered at this time is to ask on our Facebook page or join our Shell’s Garden Community private group on Facebook.
We love bringing you great educational content in our blog and newsletter. You mean you’re not on our email list yet? Sign up right here!! You’ll get exclusive announcements, sale coupons, and more benefits! We’re constantly adding to that program, called the Shell’s Members Club.
We are so thrilled to be entering our 60th year here in beautiful Tampa, Florida! Thank you for making this possible. We have lots of great useful stuff here in the store, but as Mr. Shell likes to say, what we really sell is service. Service to you, our customers, is the most important thing we can do!
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!
August: August is when you can start planting seeds for your Fall Garden! Get those seedlings sprouted and ready for transplant into your EarthBOXs and raised beds! For crops like root crops (which can be fragile), and beans (which are super-easy to grow and can usually take the heat), sow directly into the soil.
September: September our plants arrive! Shell’s Starter Plants are healthy, strong, and ready for transplant into your garden spaces. Stock up and get growing! You can still plant seeds now too. We’ve got fresh seed waiting for you here!
October: Strawberry plant plugs will be arriving this month, so make some room in your planters for these Sweet Charlies. You won’t regret it when you taste that first berry, usually in January or February. Until then, delightful foliage and fun white flowers await you! You can also plant seeds in October for Winter crops (Yes! We grow in Winter too!!), so let’s get going on that!
We hope you’ve become best friends with Garden Friendly Fungicide, Conserve Naturalyte, and Thuricide to organically take care of your garden pests while it’s been so hot and humid. Need help? Come in with a sample of your “pests” and we’ll get you the right stuff.
Here’s a couple of good articles for the season:
As usual, we carry the very best pet foods around, at awesome prices – and Made in the USA products are available! Diamond, Diamond Naturals, Diamond Grain Free, Taste of the Wild as well as Blue Buffalo and more 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, including brands such as Kaytee, ZuPreem, Scarlett, Mazuri, and more. We have a food to fit every animal’s needs and every owner’s budget to give your pets the best nutrition for your money. Check out our online store for feed we have listed there!
Having a problem with your pet? Just ask us! We’re happy to help advise. We carry specialty items for skin, grooming products, flea control, and so much more. We also have a large assortment of durable toys for mega-chewers and pets who love to run, fetch, tug, and have lots of fun!
WILD BIRD & PET BIRD SUPPLIES
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. Want more information about what seed attracts the different kinds of birds? Check out this article from the blog: Shell’s Feed Bird Food Guide
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 also occasionally carry geese, turkeys, and ducks, so keep a look out for that from our weekly Chicken Report!
We do sell great pre-built rabbit hutches. We have bedding, food, treats, 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!
And finally, make sure you Like and Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and/or Google for extra sale specials, surveys, and other things that won’t be announced anywhere else!

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.
