We've potted up our bareroot roses, and they are in the yard now, but but we are NOT offering any guarantee on them until March 15th. We'd prefer you wait a little bit for them to grow a bigger rootball so they don't get damaged when planting. But if you must buy now, just be aware of our no guarantee policy. See our rose planting guide here.
Seed racks are stocked and it's a great time to collect your favorites while we've got them. Indoor seed starting starts now! Seed starting soil and seed pots are here too.
Last Chance Winter Veggies
Plant a second round of broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and leafy veggies like kale, lettuce, mustards, greens, and spinach now so you can harvest them before it gets too hot (when they tend to bolt and flower).
First Arrivals, Early Tomatoes
Yes, we have tomatoes. No, you shouldn't plant them in the garden yet. What you CAN do is BBPP. Buy, Bump, Plant, Protect. Bump your tomatoes up to the next sized container to grow strong roots until the danger of frost has most likely passed. Then plant around March 15th, and keep protection handy in case of an errant freeze.
Artichokes and Bareroot Asparagus Crowns
This is the perfect time to plant these veggies. Asparagus takes about 3 years to produce, and our crowns are already 1 year old. These will go fast, so as the old adage goes, "The early bird gets the worm".
Time to spray to prevent scale if you currently have plant varieties like: hollies, camellias, euonymus, privets, etc.,that are prone to it. It’s a good time to spray with horticultural oils, as long as nighttime temps are above 40. See why you may need them here.
