When the Barn Comes Down…

2018-04-24T15:44:10-05:00April 21st, 2018|

When you come by the nursery this year, you will notice something big is missing.  Our big red barn!  That barn has been a landmark and and symbolic presence for the forty years we have been in business.  And now, it is no more.  Stay tuned for big changes and new development later this year, but in the meantime, please enjoy the final moments before the professionals brought the barn down in March!

Spring Pruning Tips

2018-04-25T18:54:58-05:00May 4th, 2015|

If you haven’t already begun to think about gardening, now is the time! Pruning is a very important step in maintaining the health and shape of your plants, and encouraging growth, aeration, and fruit/flowers.

Visit our Growing Tips page for general information on pruning shrubs and evergreens (including direction on when to prune different plants).

Right now (spring) is a great time to prune your roses. Here are some important tips and steps to consider for spring pruning of roses:

Pruning Roses

  • Before you begin to prune your rose bush, make sure you have a sharp pair of hand sheers.
  • First cut away any dead wood and remove any canes that are broken or damaged. Make your cuts at a 45 degree angle, and about 1/4 inch above a bud that is facing towards the outside of the plant.
  • It is also important to get rid of suckers that are growing from the ground.
  • Floribundas, hybrid teas, and grandifloras bloom on new growth, so it is important to prune them back to 1/2 to 2/3 the plant’s height. Remove interior canes to promote good air circulation.
  • For climbing roses, prune to remove winter damage and dead wood.
