|FROM WILMA: A question we are often asked is “when do I prune my hydrangeas?” With over 60 species and cultivars this can be a daunting subject. Blue or pink Bigleaf Hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophylla) bloom on old wood and should be pruned just after flowering. Some newer introductions may set buds on lower stems and re-bloom later in the season.|
Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) is a native that blooms on old wood and should be pruned just after flowering. They are now in full bloom all around town. There is a gorgeous one just outside our office.
Smooth Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) blooms on new wood. This native is flowering in semi-shady areas around the countryside. Prune in late winter/early spring. A pink cultivar ‘Invincibelle Spirit’ is flowering near the pond at the Garden Center.
Panicle “PeeGee” Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) bloom on new wood. Prune in late winter/early spring. This tough hydrangea and its many cultivars begin blooming in mid-summer. The large flowers last into fall and dry well for arrangements.
Summer and hydrangeas go hand-in-hand. Now is a great time to add one or more of these to your garden!
|Pollination Celebration 2021|
|Pollination Celebration is ongoing in the WNC area through Sunday, June 27, and Reems Creek Nursery is a sponsor! Click here for the list of events. On Sunday from 11-3, bring the family to the Bee City Asheville Pollinator Habitat in the River Arts District Greenway to check out the Pollinator Garden and do a kids activity, see the Street Creature Puppet Collective (12-2pm), sample Shanti Elixirs, and get free milkweed plants while they last, The Greenway is beautiful!|
The Pollinator Garden Tour at Reems Creek Nursery this Saturday is full but check out our Pollinator Garden on your own – for plant ideas, design inspiration, and pollinator sightings. Slow down and look closely for the multitude of tiny pollinators we often overlook at first glance.
Planting habitat is a huge way that each of us can help pollinators. Did you know that 85% of the land east of the Mississippi River is in private ownership? Imagine if each one of those yards planted a Pollinator Garden - habitat would expand exponentially. As lovers of beauty and the Earth's creatures...let's get planting!

- Vegetables and lawns need one inch of water per week.
- Roses need two inches of water per week.
- Deeply water newly planted trees and shrubs 2-3 times weekly the entire first year.
- Deeply water frost-damaged (established) trees and shrubs once a week this season to help alleviate the stress caused by the frost – this especially applies to Japanese maples.
- For disease prone plants like tomatoes and roses – Keep foliage dry and water at the base of the plant in the morning.
Vegetable Garden Tips:
- Note the leaf color and growth rate of your vegetable plants. If they are pale and growing slowly, they may need a side dressing of fertilizer (don’t forget their water needs).
- Harvest veggies at their prime stage – when they are young and tender. Harvest regularly.
- Early and late blight on tomatoes must be prevented since it is not very treatable once the disease occurs. Late blight tips for the organic gardener.
- Check your plants for insects frequently. If you are using a pesticide, use the least toxic control method rather than a broad-spectrum insecticide that kills everything. Totally non-toxic method: Squish bugs/eggs with your fingers or drop them in a jar of soapy water.
- We still have veggie plants on the tables and just received a few fresh transplants. The sooner you plant the sooner you get to eat yummy dinners from your garden.
- Deadhead your flowers to prolong bloom time. Cut off the dead bloom just above a set of leaves.
- Trim back perennials like Chrysanthemums and perennial sunflowers before July 4th to create a shorter bushier plant.

Joel Cole’s Faer Hill Cottage Garden
Thursday, July 8 at 7 pm
Joel Cole is an artist, gardener, beekeeper, and world traveler. In 1983, Joel started Faer Hill Cottage Garden for his grandmother, Bessie Garrison. After his grandparents passed away, Joel bought the property and returned home from New York City to put down roots in his hometown of Weaverville. Joel’s painting studio is nestled in the garden, which includes a number of garden “rooms” such as a potager garden with his beehives, a Japanese garden, and water garden - with delightful surprises at every turn. Joel is inspired by Monet's landscape paintings, texture in the garden, and he has planted many evergreens for winter interest.
The tour is free, but you must pre-register to attend.
