|What a gorgeous week of bright green spring leaves, candytuft and redbuds blooming everywhere, and relaxing warm weather. We are wearing short sleeves and sunhats. What a wonderful contrast to last week's freezing temps!|

- Mow lawn to 3 inches high. Mowing a little high helps prevent weeds by shading them out.
- Fertilize trees, shrubs, groundcovers and roses. Fertilize fruit if not already done.
- Prune roses. Rake around rose bushes to remove leaves and twigs. Replace old mulch with fresh mulch to prevent diseases.
- Plant veggies, but wait until Mother’s Day to plant warm season veggies like tomatoes.
- Weed your flower beds and refresh mulch after weeding.
Learn something new about the world around you!
|The first shipment of tomatoes just arrived from our Propagation Farm. We brought in a few different varieties and they look SO happy and healthy! Like all our veggies, they are sustainably raised using organic fertilizer and organic pest control if needed.|
Unless you are a risk-taker, we recommend waiting until Mother's Day to plant warm season vegetables outdoors.
| We All Need Some Support At Times|
|FROM WILMA: A former staff member told about visiting a client’s garden for a consultation. The owner had recycled broom/mop handles, old golf clubs, etc. into garden stakes. They were not the most attractive, but they served the purpose.|
Sometimes we gardeners forget about providing support for peonies, other floppy perennials, vines, and some veggies until they are overgrown. The ideal time to install supports is at planting time or when established plants begin to emerge. I have a reminder that it is time to put supports around my gladiola plantings and a peony I inherited from my mother.
Recycled materials serve the purpose, but more attractive plant supports are available with options ranging from simple wooden stakes to fancy trellises. Check out the possibilities in stock at our Garden Shop.

Zoom Online Workshop
Warm Season Vegetable Gardening
Sat. April 24, 2021
10 – 11 am, plus Q & A
With Lisa Wagner
A vegetable garden can be a lovely addition to home landscapes by attention to design and plant selection, even incorporating edibles into landscape beds. In late spring and summer, warm season vegetables and herbs bring on a different character to the vegetable garden than the leafy greens of early spring cool season plantings, from the attractive fruits of eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes to the twining vines of beans.
Join Lisa Wagner to learn about soil and light requirements, choosing vegetable varieties, planting intensively, doing succession cropping, growing in containers, and enjoying and preserving the harvest. The virtual Zoom program will also include a Q & A period. Read more…
