Making the Cut
Mini-Workshop on Pruning
With Chris Davenport
 
Pruning considerations will include proper techniques, suitable tools, plant function, pruning time and type. We will demonstrate, discuss and field one another’s questions, sharing our collective experience. Handout will be provided. Sorry, but fruit tree pruning is too large a topic to include in this mini-workshop.
 
Free, but please pre-register at the Garden Shop or call 828-645-3937.  More about Chris.
Gardening Hints
  • Apply pre-emergent for weed control when forsythia is blooming.
  • Remove broadleaf weeds now.
  • Fertilize cool-season lawns before March 10 with a slow release fertilizer.
  • Plant cool season lawn grasses now.
  • Don’t work wet garden soil. Prepare your spring garden area as soon as the soil is dry enough to work.

Just Arrived!
Seed potatoes, onion sets & shallots are here.
 
Nothing compares to the flavor of fresh-dug potatoes and you have to plant them yourself to harvest this level of deliciousness!
 
Certified Organic potato varieties include Yukon Gold, Mountain Rose, and All Blue, plus Rose Finn Apple fingerling potatoes. Conventional varieties include Yukon Gold, Red Norland, and the mountain favorite Kennebec. Onion sets are red, yellow, and white (sweet onion bunches will arrive later), plus red and yellow shallots. Yum. Yum. Yum!
Tropical Plants  So many pretty foliage plants! Create your own personal jungle or just add a focal plant or two. We received an exciting variety of plants in a multitude of sizes, textures and shades of green (and purple) - including cactus babies.
Leaping Into Spring
FROM WILMA:  Over the upcoming weekend, February will “leap” into March 1st. The first day of March is considered to be Meteorological Spring. Here in the mountains we know that March can bring a wide array of weather ranging from balmy to frigid. Some of our largest snows have been in March.
 
March is when we gardeners really began to seriously think about planting. Most trees, shrubs, fruits, and some perennials can be planted now. I especially like to plant mixed containers of pansies, herbs, lettuces, mesclun mix, etc. They are easily covered or taken inside in case of freezing weather.
 
There is much activity at the Farm with the greenhouses filling with veggie, annual, and perennial plants. New shipments of plants and other goodies are arriving daily at the Garden Center. Stop by soon to see what’s new!
Closed Sunday Thru March
New Spring Shipments

numerous Clematis, Heathers, plus Dogwood, Pink Weeping Cherry, Serviceberry, and Weeping Willow. We are unloading another truck right now!
Garden for Good
Think back 10, 20, or thirty years ago to the amount of wildlife habitat that existed around Western North Carolina. Huge chunks of the native habitat have evaporated in our area - greatly affecting local populations of animals, birds, insects, and pollinators.
 
 
You can help. Consider re-purposing some of your existing lawn area for building back our lost native plant habitat. Every little bit of gained habitat helps to foster indigenous wildlife and reinvigorate your yard with a lively buzz.
 
Gardeners can change the world - yard by yard. Garden for good!
Bulbs Have Landed!
 
Plant your dream bouquets! Go bold and beautiful with this gorgeous selection of bulbs - including Dahlias, Lilies, Gladiolas, and more!
