We have been busy in the nursery gearing up for the “spring rush”. Warm season bedding color, vegetables, and herbs are arriving weekly. We have a lot of beautiful Australian shrubs in bloom in the Sun Section. Come see the Tea Trees, Wax Flowers, Grevillias, etc. We love them all.
Yes, tomatoes are here. Unlike many of our chain competitors, we do not put them out in February. We want your tomato growing to be successful. When nights are too cool tomatoes tend to succumb to blights and other disease.
While April and May are the best months for planting tomatoes we know you want to get started. I like to put in “early” or “cool season” tomatoes to start. Some favorites are Early Girl, Stupice, and Sungold Cherry.
Sunday March 9 is the date for our popular tomato seminar. There are two sessions: at 10am and 1pm. Typically the morning session has been more crowded. Judi and I will both be there so don’t forget to say hi.
Hope to see you soon, D
