|FROM WILMA: There is lots of bird activity at both the Farm and Garden Center. Our large “treasure tree” sycamore near the pond at the Garden Center is a landing strip for a variety of bird species. Occasionally a red-tailed hawk lands there and creates quite a stir. For several years, robins have built a nest on the front porch of the office but this year it seems to have been taken over by purple finch.|
Barn swallows have returned to nest in the potting shed at the Farm. The parents spend much of their time taking turns diving through the air catching insects to feed their babies. A bird we hear but never see is the yellow-billed cuckoo. Locals call this elusive bird a "rain crow" as it seems more vocal when a rain storm approaches. It nests in thickets on the ridges and feeds on eastern tent caterpillars.
The majority of baby birds are dependent upon insects as a food source and will starve without them. Native trees like oaks, beech, black gum, maples, pines, and birches are good hosts for insects that feed baby birds and sustain healthy bird populations. Some of these trees are in stock at the Garden Center and others will be available in fall.
- Mow lawns at 3” high to prevent weeds.
- Use a mulching mower so nutrients from the grass clippings are retained in the lawn.
- Prune spring blooming shrubs immediately after bloom and before new growth starts.
- Plant dahlias, gladiolas, and caladiums now.
- Plant tomatoes, peppers, and other warm season veggies. Install cages, stakes, or other supports right after planting for best results and to prevent plant injury.
- Plant sweet potatoes once the weather is consistently warm.
- Mulch 2” thick right after planting to prevent weeds. Weeds grow quickly.
- Water newly-planted perennials, trees, shrubs, and roses regularly the whole first year.
Celebrating Pollinators & Perennial Plants in June
Zoom Online Workshop with Reems Creek Nursery
Plant a Pollinator Garden
Sat, June 19 at 10 am
With Ruth Gonzalez
Bee sweet to our pollinators, butterflies, and hummingbirds by creating a smorgasbord of beautiful blooming plants and butterfly host plants that provide much-needed habitat for pollinators. With an emphasis on native plants, these lively gardens are full of color, support wildlife, and bring you delight throughout the season.
We’ll discuss garden design principles that enhance the effectiveness of your pollinator habitat, the basic needs of any pollinator garden, and touch on certifying your Pollinator Habitat through Asheville-Bee City USA. More info.
Pollinator Garden Tour
Sat, June 26
Two sessions: 10 am & 2 pm
With Tanya LaCorte & Ruth Gonzalez
In a very small space at Reems Creek Nursery we’ve created a beautiful garden that supports pollinators throughout the growing season. During this Pollinator Garden Tour we’ll have a casual discussion of our favorite plants, what we like about them, and demonstrate design considerations. We’ll showcase the native plants in our Habitat as they offer extra benefits to pollinators. Our tour is limited to 15 people per session.
You’ll be able to sign up for this tour in early June.
