What’s Growing On – March

Vegetables & Herbs –Tomatoes….tomatoes….tomatoes!  We have all of your favorites, including heirloom tomatoes and more.  We are also fully stocked with beautiful vegetable and herb plants.  Have you ever grown spaghetti squash?  Give it a try!

Fruits & Nuts  –  Plant a container grown fruit tree or other edible.  Fruit trees need lots of sunlight, so choose an area with at least six hours of sun.  Stop applications of dormant oil when blooms appear.  Also avoid insecticides during bloom to prevent needless destruction of honeybees and other important pollinators. Stop in and shop our citrus, avocado, olive, pomegranate, and more.  

Perennials & Annuals -It is time to plant warm-season annuals and perennials grown as annuals.  Mix an inch of compost into the soil prior to planting.  Water them in with a dilute fertilizer solution after planting and repeat fertilization a week later to promote fast early growth.

Trees, Shrubs & Vines  – Fertilize trees, shrubs and vines that were planted in the fall and winter.  Blooming trees are adding color to the landscape this month.  Stop in and let us help you select one for your landscape.  The sooner you plant, the more time you’ll provide the roots to become established before the heat of summer sets in.
