Santa Visits in Murfreesboro

Santa Claus will be taking some time away from his workshop to stop by and spread some cheer, and most importantly, listen to your Christmas wish list! Come meet Santa at Martin’s Home & Garden on December 5th, December 12th, or December 19th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We won’t have a professional photographer to snap your photos this year, but you are more than welcome to bring your camera and make some Christmas memories!

Safety Guidelines

Santa visits will be a bit different this year, but they will still be wonderful! Of course, we want everyone to be able to continue their family traditions, but we are making a few changes to keep our guests as safe as possible.

Instead of waiting in line inside our garden center to see Santa, you will check in with our team who will take down your name and phone number at our entrance. You will then be asked to wait in your car until a member of our team texts you and lets you know when it’s your turn to come in. Also, to make sure all of our guests are as comfortable as possible, Santa will be wearing a mask, and hand sanitizer will be available for you and your family.

Christmas Trees for Sale

Are you looking for a Christmas tree in Murfreesboro? We’ll have cut Fraser fir trees from North Carolina available for you by November 21st at Martin’s Home & Garden! Premium 2′ to 11′ trees will be in stock as well as a selection of 5′ to 8′ field grade trees. Field grade trees have a more rustic look while keeping that beautiful dark green color that you love from original Fraser fir Christmas trees. If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas tree to bring home this holiday season, stop by our local garden center. Our team is more than happy to help you pick out the perfect one from our Christmas tree shop!

Caring For Your Christmas Trees & Wreaths

With proper care, your Christmas tree, wreaths, and garland can look fresh the whole holiday season.

Treat your Christmas tree like a bouquet of fresh flowers by using a tree stand that holds plenty of water, and never let the water run out! Place your tree away from heat sources like vents, fireplaces, or radiators. Also, always turn off the Christmas lights on your tree before you leave the house or go to bed, and never use a strand with frayed wires or broken bulbs.

Keep your wreath and garland out of direct sun. Mist them occasionally with water.

You can also spray your greenery with an anti-transpirant like Wilt-Pruf or Bonide® Leaf Shine. Anti-transpirant products prevent moisture loss in plants. You can use these items on your houseplants, too! Both items are available in the Plant Care section at our Murfreesboro garden store.

Alternative Christmas Trees

Looking for something different this year? Try growing your own Christmas tree! Some people choose a ball-and-burlap spruce and others like pine trees. Keep your new tree in your house with the burlap still wrapped around the root ball, then plant it in your landscape after Christmas. Just remove the wire and place the root ball, burlap and all, into the hole you’ve dug.We also have Norfolk pines available, which are houseplants in our area because they are too tender to stay outside.

By growing your own Christmas tree, you’ll have a beautiful evergreen to admire all year long! If you’re looking for an alternative Christmas tree, ask one of our associates for assistance. At our full-service garden center in Murfreesboro, we can help you find the perfect pine, tree, shrub, or houseplant to bring home for the holidays!

Christmas Tree Lights & Flocking

Let Martin’s Home & Garden help you trim your tree! We can string lights on any tree purchased from us and even flock your trees, wreaths, and garland.

We can put any lights on your tree; they don’t have to be purchased by us! However, we need your lights to be new and unused. We cannot accept old strings of lights.

Flock is a powder that sticks to your tree when it’s dry, giving it that beautiful, snowy look! Since the powder is biodegradable, you can compost your tree after the holiday season. Flocking is available on a limited basis, and we can’t flock trees that are taller than 9′. If you have questions about lighting or flocking, give our garden store a call.

Poinsettias & Christmas Flowers

Available in a variety of colors, poinsettias are a classic Christmas flower! They don’t like the cold, so keep them inside where they can stay warm and receive bright light. Also, make sure to water them when the top inch of soil is dry. Want a different type of Christmas flower? Our local nursery in Murfreesboro has many unique blooms for every occasion, plus we’re a Monrovia provider. Order a Monrovia plant online, like a Yuletide Camellia, to be picked up at our garden center, or stop by to start shopping our wide selection of Christmas flowers.
