Libby’s wise words as we were unloading a shrub shipment:
“Dogwood Winter” is right on time!
|Azaleas, Rhododendron, & Peiris |
Just Arrived. That color sings of Spring!
Huge Shrub Shipment Arrives Friday
So many awesome shrubs are coming including abelias, conifers, hydrangeas, Japanese hollies, Nellie Stevens holly, rhododendrons, spirea, snowball viburnums, and much more!
All 4 types! It's hard not to love hydrangeas. All of them are beautiful. Each type blooms at a different time so we are talking about blooms from late spring into fall if you plant all four types.
Hydrangeas are not yet blooming, but they are starting to leaf out after their winter rest.
New Outdoor Pottery
It is finally here! This shipment has been "on its way on the water" for a long while. Luckily it came in time for you to create beautiful outdoor containers for the new season! Another shipment will be arriving soon too...if the stars are right!
Certified Organic Herbs
Forget the grocery store! You can easily grow the herbs you enjoy right at home. Harvest them fresh and FULL of flavor from your yard. The organic herbs are labeled as such and usually in brownish pots.
Two Big Perennial Shipments
Lots of variety on each shipment with so many beautiful choices - its hard to choose!
Known as the Queen of vines, our clematis is starting to bloom…and those gorgeous blooms are what make it “queenly”. Clematis likes to have its top in the sun and its feet in the shade; to accomplish this, mulch the ground around the clematis or put flat rocks around the root zone to keep the roots cooler. Your clematis will look beautiful climbing up a support trellis.
Colorful Pillows for the New Season
Celebrate spring with bright happy pillows that welcome in the new season.
25% Off Cool Season Veggie Transplants
Choose from a delicious selection of lettuces & salad greens, kales, cabbages, broccoli and more.
Enjoy the vitality of just-picked garden produce. You can taste the difference! Excludes ramps.
|Set Up a Bluebird Nestbox|
|We’ve started spotting bluebirds in our yards. That flash of gorgeous blue catches the eye and fills us with wonder every time we see one.|
You can invite bluebirds into your yard! Just set up a Bluebird Nestbox and get thrilled on a daily basis while they are tending their young. Watch from the kitchen sink while you are washing dishes or watch from your porch or coffee-drinking spot. So delight-full!
Site your Bluebird Nestbox in an open area like a mowed lawn. Install the box on a metal pole (ideally) or post about 5’ above the ground. Face the nest opening away from prevailing winds: ideally it should face southeast. Avoid the temptation to plant underneath the box, as bluebirds like to see the ground around them. Bluebirds are territorial, so if you have multiple Nestboxes, place them on opposite sides of the house where the birds can’t see each other.
Learn more about bluebirds from the North Carolina Bluebird Society.
|Frost/Freeze - What’s the Difference?|
|From Wilma: Frost and freeze are words we hear especially in fall and spring. As gardeners, farmers, and nursery growers these weather conditions play havoc with plants. We have experienced both of these recently and will probably see other episodes into May.|
So, what is the difference? Frost is basically frozen dew and can occur on surfaces including plants. It happens when nights are clear with temperatures between 32 and 36 degrees. Windy and cloudy conditions deter it. A Freeze occurs with temperatures below 32 degrees and a hard freeze is when temperatures are 28 degrees or lower as well as for extended periods.
Waiting until mid-May to plant warm-season annuals and veggies is the safest way to protect them. When frost or freezes are predicted covering plants like lettuce, flowering strawberries, and other cool-season veggies and small fruits with row cover, frost blankets, fabrics, etc. will offer some protection. Depending on the stage of tender foliage, flowers, and size of trees and shrubs, covering is the best protection. If this is not possible and frost/freeze damage occurs most trees will put out a second set of leaves but not flowers.

Congratulations to Candace Krebs! Her garden was the 100th Pollinator Habitat to be certified by Bee City USA Asheville/Greenworks. She will receive a $100 gift card to Reems Creek Nursery and a garden consultation from a Bee City leader to help her enlarge her pollinator garden with more native plants.
In Candace's words: "I had been wanting to apply for the certification ever since I took pollinator classes through Reems Creek and Asheville Greenworks a while back...I plan to use the certification sign to initiate conversations to educate whomever I can about the importance of pollinator habitat. I love Reems Creek. It is my favorite nursery and I look forward to adding more pollinators to my garden."
We are so excited for Candace and appreciate her kind words!
