Olive's is celebrating our 79th year in the Family!
Spring has sprung!
We are doing our best to stock up, but everything is in big demand all over Texas.
As far as damage from the freeze, every day tells the story.
Are plants dead? Some are. Many are slow to decide. Time will tell.
Bending and breaking branches don't tell you as much as scratching the skin of a twig.
If it's green just below the "skin" it has the potential to live.
If it's dry, it can't recover (from that point outward).
Many perennials are up and blooming. My gerber daisies and salvia are!
I can't imagine Yellow Bells and Pride of Barbados (Mexican Bird of Paradise)
living through that freeze. BUT you never know!
What I do know is freeze damage is random. There's always exceptions.
And if they live, it may be a while before you see growth.
And, unfortunately, many will be in short supply.
New sea container of Pottery has arrived!
I really think you will find Olive's a pleasant place to be.
And you should check us out on Facebook
and Olive's OIL to your lawn.
You can feed your lawn now,
but I think the best time is after it's grown enough to mow twice,
and I mean mow the grass, not the weeds.
It's always ime to care for your landscape!
Olive's was started in 1942 by my Grandfather, Walter Eric Olive. That was 78 years ago! We've accumulated some experience over the years and hope to share it with you through this website. Some people are considered experts when they've been doing the same thing for over forty years, so if you want to ask me lawn and garden, pond, or any question, just email me (Tommy Olive) at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back with my best answer.
When you're sick, you want an experienced doctor. When your landscape is ailing, you want the same thing. We've helped thousands of West Texans be successful in their landscapes. Whether it's tired, yellow lawns or sick shrubs and trees, we can help. I believe in working with nature. We know which plants and trees do well here, which are challenging, and which are impossible to grow. You're on the Net so you must like to browse here: when you find what sounds like the best plant ever, you might want to check with my experience before you invest your money, sweat, and time. There are alot of continuous flowering plants that do great right here in West Texas. We're here when you need us. We've been a family owned garden center all my life!
Over thirty years ago I discovered organic gardening. This was after selling organic cures and native plants in the 70's totally unsuccessfully. I learned that success was found in the soil. Good healthy soil grows good, healthy plants. I developed our own bio-stimulant back then that we call Olive's OIL. For more info check out our Organic Gardening section.
We're also experts in Water Gardening. I built my first pond in 1976. What a blessing when we realized rubber could be used instead of concrete. What's the difference in designing a water garden and a Koi pond? How do you control green water and string alge? What plants will grow around and in the pond? Should I invest in a Bio-Fall and Skimmer and a UV light? We're here for you! Contact us (ask for Stevo, our water garden expert) with your questions. We are an Aquascape dealer.
I installed my first gravel yard about 43 years ago. It was on Rockbrook which was the southern edge of town back then. I put beds next to the house and some kidney shaped beds out in the gravel. It's still there today! At the time I'd never heard of the term Xeriscape. Since then I've learned alot that may benefit you.
My mother started handling gifts, home decor and Christmas in the mid-fifties. My wife, Debbie, has continued all that and added a boutique. We've got tops, dresses, sun dresses, pants, jewelry, and I don't know what all!

Community Bible Study is a good way to understand the Bible.
We have small groups for women, men, and couples. We are currently Zooming.
Normally we meet at the Heights Church at 6:30 on Mondays for about 1 1/2 hours. We are studying the gospel of John. It's designed for beginners to experts, and for unbelievers who want to see for themselves if there's any truth in the Bible. CBS is really a self-study Bible study. Five days each week questions guide you into your personal study of the passage. We will start with the first word in chapter one and continue through the end. But we do it together also. We come to "class" and hear others' answers and give ours if we want to. I give a short talk (that's you get by a link to a video) and we dismiss. On Tuesdays you read a scholarly commentary on the passage. We are not a church or affilliated with any church. We are being transformed by God's word in order to be His disciples wherever we are. Call me at 325-895-1101 if you want to know more. Tommy (You can go to CommunityBibleStudy.com and find our coed class)
