We’re amazed at the demand for herbs and vegetables this year – apparently it’s a national phenomenon due to so many folks sheltering at home. We’re trying to keep up but it is quite challenging. The month of May is still a great planting month – in the old days no one would start planting before Memorial Day! Don’t forget to add some rich organic matter for your plants.

Can’t have rain without weeds! You might try “Weed Barrier” to help fight the battle. This product is a tough, durable fabric guaranteed to last many years. You can cut holes out for plants or you can use it in barren areas. Simply cover the fabric with mulch. And we have other weed fighting products – some are specific for grasses or broadleaf weeds.

Prime time for planting perennials. We have an excellent inventory in 4″, 1 gallon and even 6 pack varieties. If your favorite is missing, we’ll try to obtain it for you. Some of the current varieties are Erysimum, Perovskia (Russian sage), Gaillardia, many varieties of Salvia, Shasta daisies, Euphorbia and Centranthus (Jupiter’s beard). Don’t forget the gopher cages!
