    Fall is for Planting

    If you were considering replacing or planting a new shade tree, NOW IS THE TIME!!

    Due to the cooler temperatures yet, still warm ground, trees and hardy shrubs can get established before the stress of summer heat hits next summer. Even though we are in a drought a tree is a wise investment. It is important to choose the correct location and tree for your needs. If you need help selecting the proper tree and/or proper placement of your shade tree, just drop by and our knowledgeable staff can help!

    We currently have select trees on sale that are ready to provide shade for your yard!

    Got Fruit Trees? Timely tips…

    by  • November 11, 2014 • 2 Comments

    Now that Thanksgiving is fast approaching it is time to do some maintenance on fruit trees. These tips do not include CITRUS trees! If you have citrus trees and have questions ask below in the ‘Comment’ section and I will answer!

    Pruning

    Winter pruning is done to maintain structure while summer pruning is to maintain size. Now is the time to do heaving pruning. Make sure to have clean, sharp pruners and saws ready! FOR MORE INFORMATION sign up for our upcoming seminar Winter Fruit Tree Care.  If you are unable to make it, look for more information to come!

    Jay demonstrating pruning during a previous seminar.

    Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Pluots, Apricots and Cherries

    You will want to dormant spray these trees up to 3 times during the dormant season. Dormant spray is composed of an insecticidal oil and a fungicide. This prevents overwintering insects and Peach Leaf Curl and Shothole which are diseases not seen until springtime when it’s too late to spray. So PREVENT NOW!! I typically recommend spraying around Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentines Day. The exact timing isn’t imperative just that you start after the leaves fall off the trees and space out the sprayings about 4 weeks apart. The last spraying needs to be before flower buds pop open in the spring.

    Be careful not to spray sulfur on Apricots, it will burn them.

    Fall & Winter Veggies to plant now

    by  • November 4, 2014 • 0 Comments


    VEGETABLES:
    Bok Choy, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Celery, Lettuce, Onion, Snap Peas, Shelling Peas, Spinach, Artichoke (seedling), Carrots, Beets, Radishes, Fava Beans, Kale, Mustard greens, Collard greens, turnips and turnip greens.

    All vegetables listed above except Celery, Onions, Peas, Artichokes and Fava beans should be planted in succession 2-4 weeks apart. Succession planting is just repeated plantings to ensure a continued crop since these plants produce 1 primary crop and maybe a small secondary crop then they are finished.

    HERBS: Chives, Fennel, Lemon Balm, Marjoram, Mint, Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary, Thyme. Some of these herbs will die back in the winter if planted outside but planting them in the fall will ensure a larger plant next year which means a bigger harvest!
