Just 8 Days Left!

The Last Nursery Day of the season is Tuesday Oct. 30!   

Fortunately, we are experiencing another ‘Indian Summer’ which gives us an excellent opportunity to plant perennial flowers, vines, grasses, shrubs and deciduous trees, as well as

SPRING-BLOOMING BULBS! 

We still have a good selection of our favorite deer-proof Daffodils (Narcissus) and early-blooming miniature Narcissus. 

Also in the deer-proof or deer-resistant category we have the delightful miniature ‘botanical’ Iris selections, classic early Snowdrops, Glory-of-the-Snow (Chionodoxa forbesii), beautiful golden Allium moly, very xeric A. christophii, tall purple A. ‘Rosenbachii’, and white/pink native A.’Graceful’, true-blue A. caeruleum and Anemone blanda. We also have the very special, very hardy steppe-native Blue Siberian Lily (Ixiolirion pallasii)! All of these will naturalize and are long-lived and easy to grow.

For those who garden where the deer and the antelope do not play, we also have some of the best and most beautiful naturalizing Crocus and early wildflower Tulips! 

And we are still offering wonderfully fragrant, highly giftable Paperwhite Narcissus bulbs and Blue Hyacinth bulbs! Our fragrant Hyacinths have already been ‘pre-treated’ (given a cold period) for winter indoor bloom, and come with a special traditional Hyacinth Glass in which to grow them.

We offer additional hyacinth glasses you can use for growing the Paperwhites, too; Paperwhite bulbs come in packages of 5 bulbs, so with just one package and 5 glasses, you’ve got the makings of 5 lovely gifts!

You might be wise to pick up some Row Cover Fabric from us NOW, so you’ll be prepared to extend the season of your fall vegetable crops, and be ready to get a jump on spring veggies! Most of the Brassica (Cabbage-family) vegetables, especially Asian greens, do best when planted as early as possible. Row Cover Fabric will help you get that Pak Choi, Tastsoi, broccoli, raab, etc. in early enough to prevent premature bolting in our warm (or even hot) spring weather, and make spring plantings of carrots, radishes, turnips and beets more successful!


AMARYLLIS BULB KIT

Nothing like an easy bulb kit to help you kick-start your holiday bulb planting!  Our packaged kit includes your choice of bulb (pictured and listed below), attractive pot, and potting soil, packaged in a gift-worthy gold box.     


Top Row: Amaryllis ‘Minerva’, Amaryllis ‘Mont Blanc’, Amaryllis Sonatini ‘Balentino’
Second Row: Amaryllis Sonatini ‘Pink Rascal’, Amaryllis ‘Red Lion’


BEEKEEPERS ALERT!

This winter is predicted to be quite cold, so be prepared to protect your hive(s) with our BEE COZIES.

And for those of you cultivating MASON BEES, come in to get replacement nesting straw LINERS so you will have them ready to set out in early spring. Re-using old liners is NOT RECOMMENDED!
