For those of you who would like to have brassicas, fall herbs, radicchio and sorrel in your autumn garden, please send me your requests for these plants as soon as you can. I'll be seeding in the nursery early next week (starting June 16).
I'm offering three varieties of broccoli, two varieties of red cabbage, the Asian green Totsoi, collards, kale, cilantro, Italian Flat Leaf parsley, Forest Green parsley, three varieties of radicchio and a French sorrel. See photos of most of my fall varieties. Move your cursor over the photo to view the name of the variety.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for a fall plant list or call 828.333.4151. Orders for fall greens, such as spinach, arugula and lettuce, are due Saturday, July 26.
Here's a reminder why it's best to request plants ahead of the season through the M R Gardens Pre-Season Prep service.
Advantages to fall gardening
New to gardening? I recommend trying out fall vegetables—for their ease in growing, high nutritional value and lengthy harvest time. I explain further in this article on my website.

M R Gardens business values
Some activities require someone by your side to really grasp them, and gardening is one. When you are shown how to set up a bed, plant the crops and harvest them, you are much more likely to remember how later. It's also important that you set up a system that fits your lifestyle, schedule, goals, personality and work style, so that you stick with the activity over time. In addition to working with you a few days your first season, I can provide you a garden plan specifically for you, as well as spreadsheets, timelines and growing tips to make your life in the garden manageable.

|I serve individuals, families and business owners who want to improve their properties and the well-being of their customers with edible gardens. Using primarily edible and native plants, I tailor designs to the client's unique needs, with the goal of creating an aesthetically pleasing, therapeutic and useful area that raises quality of life and property value. I incorporate themes of traditional design (such as texture, levels, line, unity, balance, simplicity, color, and ease of maintenance) with the principles of permaculture design (such as microclimates, useful vegetation, and the smart use of the sun's and the gardener's energy). I aim to create a vision, alongside the property owner, that is both extraordinary and practical, so the landscape can realistically be implemented and maintained. Read more here.
