We Are Plant People - Going Strong Since 1979
Maybe it was all the thunder and lightning last week…but spring green has arrived just in time for Easter. The mountainsides are beginning to soften with halos of baby green, dogwoods and redbuds are blooming, and creeping phlox is carpeting our gardens with bright happy color.
Itching to decorate for Easter and get your fingers in the dirt? We have lots of Easter color, grab-and-grow porch ferns, and pretty plants galore. Come visit!
Wishing you a wonderful Easter holiday!
Huge Shipment of Tropical Bloomers
Including mandevilla vines in multiple colors and sizes, tropical hibiscus in gorgeous colors, flowering jasmine vines, elephant ears, shrimp plants, gardenias with their intoxicating scent, and more!
Boston Fern hanging baskets, Macho Ferns, and Kimberly Queen Ferns (able to handle sun) are all looking lush! Get the spring vibes happening. If temps drop below 50 degrees, bring your ferns inside overnight.
Trees & Shrubs
New shipments keep rolling in...dogwoods, boxwood, hydrangea, viburnums, cryptomeria, sourwoods, and much more. Colorful foliage, interesting textures, and buds starting to pop!
Live Ladybugs Are Here!
Did you know that ladybugs love eating aphids for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Ladybugs and their larvae are voracious eaters of aphids and other garden pests like mealy bugs, spidermites, scale, whitefly, thrips, leafhoppers and more. Each ladybug can devour up to 50 garden pests per day. They will mate and lay eggs, and their larvae are big eaters too!
Use in your organic garden, greenhouse, or interiorscapes. Store your ladybugs in the refrigerator and release them in the evening. All of them do not need to be released at the same time.
Ladybug Larvae...AKA Aphid Lion
4-packs of Everbearing and Junebearing Strawberries. Yummy!

|For the Love of Blueberries|
|FROM JOY: Blueberries are one of my favorite plants. They are extremely delicious AND nutritious - packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Studies have shown that a regular intake of blueberries can help prevent a variety of cardiac issues. An interesting 2019 study found that eating 1 cup of blueberries per day could improve cardiac health outcomes in patients already at risk or under treatment for a variety of heart-related issues, which is pretty remarkable for a humble berry! |
Blueberries are also a native plant and a lovely pollinator plant. When the blueberries are blooming here at Reems Creek Nursery, bees show up - including our native bumblebees, carpenter bees, and non-native honeybees - and have a pollinator party. It is always a delight to see them, knowing the hearty fruits of summer will be here before we know it.
We received a wonderful new shipment of blueberries this week from our Propagation Farm, and have a good inventory to choose from.

|Winter Burn on Schip Laurels|
|The Schip Laurels in our hedgerow recently started showing signs of winter burn, plus we've heard reports from friends with the same issue.|
Don't worry. Your Schip Laurel is NOT dead or dying. It was either damaged by frost or dried out from the relentless winds we have been experiencing. You don't need to do anything. Just be patient. In a month or so, spring growth will have pushed the burned leaves off your shrub and everything will be fine and looking pretty again.
Give your Schip Laurel regular deep drinks of water this season to help relieve the stress of the winter burn.
