We have several beauties from Emerisa Nursery and Wild Geese Farms!! Over 50 varieties of FRUIT & NUT trees suitable for foothill orchards ready for planting! Lots of interesting new varieties and types of fruit.
Our Roses arrive the first part of April 2020 in containers fully budded and blooming. Grown by Weeks Roses and shipped to us ready to plant! Price will be approx $35 for shrubs and climbing roses and $45 for small trees. As we get warmer days before mor rain, it’s a good time to prepare the garden for the coming spring ahead, as well as planning for the joys of another growing season. Planting spring bulbs is the perfect antidote to the winter blues, with the promise of dazzling displays in a few months’ time. Daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses and snowdrops can all be planted now, including tulips.
Plant cool-season annuals such as African daisy, foxglove, Iceland poppy, larkspur, lobelia, pansy, petunia, phlox, snapdragon, stock, sweet alyssum, sweet pea, and viola. Keep them well watered, especially if the temperature warms. Fill pots and borders with autumn-flowering heather's, cyclamens and violas. Finally, late warm days are the ideal time for planting trees and shrubs, giving their roots time to establish over winter, ready for new growth in spring. Before planting, make sure your beds have been amended. Also, it is important that you are careful with your planting, using crop rotation even in your raised beds for optimal soil and plant health.
In the cut flower garden, take advantage of the seed heads, hips and haws in the garden and hedgerow - create striking vase arrangements by mixing them with stems of perennials; for the "last floral fling". We have Cyclamen, Snapdragons, Pansies and other lovely and colorful perennials for your gardens. Pansies just keep blooming, brightening up the gardens.

What To Do in the Garden
Tidy up vegetable plots, add rich compost for planting.
Remove dead wood from roses, any crossing stems.
Wait until new shoots have appeared and then cut hydrangea stems down to these new buds.
There's still time to prune grape vines until the first buds appear. Fruit will be on new growth.
Blitz perennial weeds in your beds and kitchen garden.
Almost time to start preparing lawns for a new season.
Tidy up strawberry plants - cut off dead leaves/remove runners.
When temperatures begin to rise, start work on ponds.
Once the forsythia start to bloom you should have your lawn fertilizer and crabgrass preventer down.
Add seasonal flowering plants to sidewalks, porch, etc.
Don't forget to order your 2020 roses and fruit trees!
Perennials - Spring is here! Bulbs are blooming abundantly, and the days are getting longer at last. Check out our many, deer-resistant perennials. Sweet alyssum is a flower to grow for its light fragrance; it creeps along the ground creating a carpet of beauty in white or purple. It tolerates heat and cool weather well, and has winter blooms. Petunias and Pansies are wonderful, colorful cool season perennials to plant, also. We also have cheerful hanging baskets for your patio and porch!
Pruning - Cut back the yellowing foliage of herbaceous perennials, and lift and divide overcrowded clumps to maintain their vigor. If you have grapevines in your garden, then you will also need to prune these now. Cut back all fruited shoots to one or two buds from the main stem.
Planting Beds - We have seed potatoes... Red LaSoda, Yukon Gold, Norkotah Russet & Purple Majesty! Spread a nice layer of fresh mulch or compost on your beds, also. Herbs and tomatoes have arrived!
Spinach – Planting spinach before May should give you plenty of time to harvest this tasty treat before the summer heat causes it to bolt. Plant 4 – 6 weeks before the last frost.
Lettuce – Make sure your spring lettuce gets plenty of light but not all day; it won’t bolt as quickly if it has some shade too.
Trees & Shrubs - Buddleia bushes make striking additions to your garden. All varieties are beautifully scented with a delicate perfume, perfect for luring butterflies (bees and hummingbirds) to your property. We have beautiful Redbud and barberry trees.
Other Garden Things To Do - Our bare root have arrived! Our roses are due in April! They will be in containers fully budded and blooming. Grown by Weeks Roses and shipped to us ready to plant! In the meantime, sunny days can be spent preparing your garden beds for planting veggies, annuals and perennials.
Soon the garden center will be chock full of wonderful, colorful choices. This is a great time to plant those shrubs and trees also, with an eye to this year's fall color. Encourage hungry birds into your garden by investing in bird baths and bird feeders. Our feathered friends will keep pest numbers down, bringing joy to the garden.
