|Set Up Bluebird Boxes in February|
|With their flash of bright blue wings, bluebirds are a thrill to watch. Set up your bluebird box in February as mating season is imminent. Site your box in an open grassy spot without a lot of underbrush and avoid planting anything near the pole. Boxes should be attached to the pole at around 6-8 feet high. To maximize enjoyment, site your bluebird box where you can see it from the kitchen sink, your favorite chair, or porch swing.|
Bluebirds feed on ground dwelling insects most of the year, and they can spot these insects from 150 ft. away! In winter they feed on wild berries.
You’ll find three styles of Bluebird Boxes available in our lower Garden Shop. If you’ve never had a bluebird box before…set one up. It’s so much fun watching these beautiful birds.

|FROM WILMA: Whenever I visit my friend Donna I take her something from the Garden Center. She lives in northern Kansas and has a beautiful garden despite challenging weather conditions. A few years ago I took some blackberry plants which did not do well there. On a visit about this time last year we dug them and I brought them back and planted them in my garden.|
Small fruits like blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, and strawberries are fairly easy to grow and can be incorporated into home landscapes. Shipments of these small fruit and fruit trees are arriving soon and should be out for sale on Saturday (weather permitting).
Next week promises to be a bit warmer and I look forward to pruning my ‘Champagne’ grape vines. I will make cuttings from the trimmings. North Carolina Co-operative Extension has information on growing small fruits as well as fruit trees.
