THINGS TO DO                                          NOVEMBER

1.  We have all your Fall/Winter vegetables for your garden in six-packs and some in  4" pots - Broccoli, Chard, Lettuce, Cabbage, Onions, Spinach, Kale, Brussels sprouts, Cauliflower, Sugar and Snow Peas. 

 2.     Pansies, Violas, Snapdragons, Primrose, Calendulas, Iceland Poppies, Cyclamen, and Flowering Kale and Cabbage.  These will go right through the winter well into spring.

3.     Plant all the spring bulbs like Daffodils and Tulips now.  Putting some bone meal or bulb fertilizer in the bottom of the hole before you plant will give you great results for many years. Daffodils especially are full-proof, gopher-proof, deer-proof and drought tolerant. Plant and forget. They come back year after year.

4.      Onions are in. 50 plants for $4.99. Harvest them in late May to June and have onions until fall. We have Early Burger Red (supposed to be an improved version of Stockton Red), White and Yellow onions bareroot. Walla-walla and Stockton Red are in six-packs. Plant onions about 4 apart in slightly raised beds. They like a pH of 6.2 to 6.8 so slightly acidic. Add compost and a bulb food or fertilizer with higher phosphorus and when planting. Garlic in also. Early White, Late Pink and Spanish Red. Divide the bulbs and plant each clove a couple inches under the ground. Similar planting instructions for garlic as for onions. Pointed end up!

5. Rip out those old summer plants. Harvest all tomatoes first and store, even green ones will turn red on your counter. How about planting onions now? Or we have all the other fall vegetables in stock.   Or maybe you like artichokes, asparagus or strawberries?  They will be here soon.

6.     Before the rains come, get a jump on your landscape weeds with a pre-emergent.  Either granular or spray - put on and water in or do just before it rains.  It kills weed seeds as they emerge but won't harm existing plants (or weeds for that matter.) Weed Impede can be can be added to Roundup/Remuda/Killzall.  Our Amaze pre-emergent can be applied with a hand spreader. We have a new natural one called Weed Preventer using corn gluten.

7.     After the rains and after the weeds come up (yes it will rain again) we have Kill-Zall at only $39.99 a gallon (same as Roundup).

8.     Need to protect your plants? Winter is coming. We have Frost Cloth.  6 and 12 feet wide.

9.     Need Fall color? Lot of trees and shrubs turning color at the nursery.  Chinese Pistache, Ash, Maples, Flowering Pears, Liquidambar, Red Oaks and Crape Myrtles have great fall color of reds and oranges. Don't forget the shrubs like Blueberry and Heavenly Bamboo.

 

10.    Scatter poppy and wildflower seed now before it starts raining - before the weeds start growing

11.     As the weather starts to cool as we go into fall, remember to turn down or turn off your automatic clocks.  Plants won't be needing as much water.

12.    Think about ordering early for your fruit trees and such. We will be posting the list soon. You get first pick without worrying about us selling out. When the order comes in mid-January, we cherry pick the best trees and set them aside for when you are ready.
