Tis the Season…to Plant Grass!
1. Plant Grass. September is the very best month to plant grass. Whether you are seeding a new lawn or overseeding bare spots in your existing lawn, seeding this month is optimal.
 
2. Fertilize Grass. Fertilize your lawn in September, October or November with a slow release fertilizer. We have conventional & organic fertilizer options, and organic starter fertilizer for lawns too!
 
3. Lime? If you have not applied lime to your yard in the last few years, it’s time! We have dolomitic lime, hi-calcium lime, and fast acting lime. Cooperative Extension soil test boxes are available on request.
 
 
MORE…
Buckwheat is a great cover crop this time of year. It comes up quickly, flowers quickly, and is an excellent food source for pollinators. Turn the organic matter back into the soil and plant again until frost (buckwheat is frost sensitive).
 
Fertilize roses after deadheading to encourage more blooms before frost. Roses enjoy regular watering.
Native Plants Workshop
Sat. Sept. 14 at 10 am
Native Plants & the Vital Landscape
With Chris Davenport
 
Join us to explore the many layers of a garden all aflush with native plants – a garden that is pleasing to the human eye but also serves to support our native fauna like birds and pollinators.
 
Chris will lead us through the beautiful plant palette that natives offer - from the tree canopy and small flowering trees to shrubs, perennials and ground covers. Come prepared to share ideas and ask questions. Free, but please pre-register at the Garden Center or call 828-645-3937.

 A Fair Time of Year
FROM WILMA: Meteorologists consider September 1st as the beginning of the fall season. Early September days are still very warm but there are hints of fall - crisp night air, shorter days, pumpkins, apple harvests, and fields of fall-flowering natives. I also associate the Mountain State Fair with September.
 
This year marks the 30th anniversary of The Mountain State Fair. Earlier this week I was at the fairgrounds with my granddaughters who were entering canned goods and produce. It is inspiring to see the varied competitions like quilts, photography, crafts, etc. many of which are the work of youth. Of course, my favorites are the flower shows!
 
In an old gardening book I have that was published in 1904, the author begins the gardening year in September. Thinking ahead to next year’s garden can begin with planning now - making new beds; planting trees, shrubs, and fruits; and dividing spring flowering perennials. Now is the optimum time to divide peonies or plant new ones. We just received a shipment of some nice ones from our farm.

Fresh Azaleas & Rhododendron
Our first fall shipment of Azaleas, Rhododendron, Pieris, and Mountain Laurel has arrived. Fall is a great time to plant these beautiful spring bloomers, as they will have all winter to root-in.
 
 
Planting: These plants love good drainage in the root zone, so amend your backfill soil with compost or soil conditioner mixed 50/50 with the native soil. Plant with the root ball at least 1/4 out of the ground, mounding the amended backfill up around the sides of the root ball. Mulch with 2-3” of mulch, keeping the mulch away from the trunk of the plant. Water regularly.

Kokedama Workshop
Sat. Sept. 14 at 1 pm
Kokedama Workshop – Make & Take
With Treasure Smith
 
Create a lush addition to your indoor plant collection. In this workshop, Treasure Smith will lead you - step by step - through the artful process of crafting your own beautiful Kokedama moss ball garden to take home.
 
 
Kokedama is a traditional Japanese bonsai technique where the plant’s roots are encased in a soil and sphagnum moss ball held together with sheet moss and bound with string. Also called “string gardens”, Kokedama can be hung, or placed in a decorative container.
 
It’s fun and easy! The workshop fee covers the instruction and all materials needed to design your Kokedama - your choice of a 2-4” tropical plant, soil, sphagnum & sheet moss, string, and macramé hanger. Reserve your spot on Eventbrite. $24.99 plus tax. Limited to 10 participants.
Cool Season Veggies
Plant your fall garden now. Eat fresh lettuce, kale, broccoli, and cabbage...and yummy collard greens which only get sweeter after frost.
 
 
Garden Tip: Harvest greens and baby lettuce from around the outside of the plants (harvest the lower leaves), leaving the central growing tips untouched. This allows you to enjoy eating delicious greens and salads while the plant continues to produce new leaves.
Reems Creek Nursery is hosting the Weaverville Tailgate Market every Wednesday from 2:30 - 6 pm.
 
 
Parking for the Weaverville Tailgate Market is located in the gravel parking lot to the right of our entrance. PLEASE USE CAUTION in the parking lot - drive carefully and thoughtfully. Thanks! Find out more on their website or their Facebook Page.
