Every Day is Earth Day at Harlequin’s Gardens

Every Day is EARTH DAY
at HARLEQUIN’S GARDENS!!

Garima with Gertrude Jekyll Rose

EVERYDAY is Earth Day at Harlequin’s Gardens, where we never use any toxic pesticides, fungicides or herbicides.

Come out to get your organic veggie starts (we have tomatoes, peppers and basil in stock now!)  If you protect them with our famously successful Solar Caps, you can plant these now.  Or plant them in a green house or cold frame.

We already have a bountiful selection of organic herb starts, with more coming in all the time.

All of our perennials, shrubs and trees are free of insect-killing neonicotinoid pesticides.

We have an excellent selection of locally sourced composts, mulches, and potting mixes and organic fertilizers.

And, our Compost Tea Brewer is now running for the season!

Compost Tea is…

  • a highly concentrated population of beneficial bacteria and beneficial fungi that build healthy soil
  •  a nutrient-rich brew that feeds soil life naturally
  • a compost concentrate that reduces compaction, aerates and improves water retention
  • who knows? You can’t tell anything by looking at the tea. You have to watch how the plants respond!

So let your plants “taste and see.”   Homegrown fertilizer produced on-site.   $5 / gallon + $1 refundable deposit for container, or bring your own 1 gallon jug.
