Dear Gardening Friends,
Fall is a really
and we're not kidding.
We've got barely 5 months to get 2 rounds of the cool-weather treasures planted and grown... And we also must plan for Leeks (due 9/2), Garlic & Shallots(due 9/30), Onions (10/10), Potatoes (10/15), and then Asparagus & Rhubarb (December)...and don't forget all the Holidays that vie for our time!
There is so much opportunity in a such a brief period, but we're here to help!
"Flowering Brussels" is the first NEW Vegetable created since Broccolini!! This is a non-GMO hybrid cross of Brussels Sprouts and Kale, so rather than producing tight, round sprouts, these ruffle out like lovely flowers. These seeds are a "mix", so color variations are to be expected. All our Seedlings are Certified Organic and Non-GMO, of course!
PLEASE NOTE: While the Fall/Winter page is now fully updated, many of these items will NOT be available until closer to the end of September. Our Fall Kick-Off Sale will be held
Saturday, Sept. 30 & Sunday, Oct. 1...save the dates!!
German Butterball Potato
California Rainbow Poppy Mix
Berries, Vines & Fruit Trees!
Now’s the perfect time to get these planted! We have lots of beautiful varieties in stock, and more coming in all the time.
Currently, we have beautiful Figs, Passionfruit Vines, Citrus (Meyer Lemon, Kaffir Lime, Cara Cara & Blood Oranges, Kumquat and more!), Guavas, Persimmons, Pomegranate, and Olives. Plus, our famous Blueberries!
If you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask! We can get larger trees, espaliered trees, and rare varieties.
Please don't delay in getting your Fall garden prepared, and don't worry too much about the warm weather, either. Last year we started our Kale & Broccoli in early September, hoping no heat waves would damage them, and we had complete success! So fear not!!
We hope to see you here for our Open Housenext Saturday (Sept. 2nd)!!
