A New Year of Gardening starts in January
We are all looking into this New Year with much anticipation. Gardening was for many a way to cope with this past year. Hopefully you gained many new skills in the garden or maybe you are a new gardener. We are here to help you with this coming year. Be it in the vegetable garden, flower garden in the newly planted home orchard or acquiring a green thumb for indoor plants.
January is the time to check your seed supply and order more if needed.
1. Start seeding peppers in January
2. Onion sets can be planted in January
3. Deep water your trees in the winter.
We close down for the months of January and February to catch our breaths, relax after the busy holiday season and to reflect on what to do again for the spring and upcoming year.
We have you covered for the spring…
We were busy as bees in the fall getting orders placed with our suppliers of seed, bedding plants, roses and trees, soil amendments etc. It was a bit chaotic having to order so much sooner than we usual do. A pandemic makes you think more of having a sustainable future.
Our online store is always open!
We, as so many other small businesses have added an online store. It is also a steep learning curve but very practical for our customers. Curbside pickup is available and we are also including shopping by appointment. We appreciate our customers buying local and want to make it easier, convenient and safe. Any order placed online can be picked up within a day or two at our physical store.
Do you have a seed and fertilize “Bank” secured? Let us help you!
We have added an Indoor Plant section, check it out on our
Online Store - Blumenflor
How plants clean the Air
Houseplants absorb carbon dioxide from the air through their leaves. Co2 is then combined with water and sunlight to make carbohydrates that plants use to survive. During this process known as photosynthesis, oxygen is released into the air for humans and animals to breathe. Plants also absorb many other gases which may be harmful to us. Nasa did a study on this back in 1989 and found that Indoor plants are a natural type of air filter.
Mary, Mary quite contrary…
How does your Amaryllis Grow ?
If you received an Amaryllis for the holidays hopefully it is growing! We measured a growth of 10 inches on one of ours. They are fascinating to watch grow indoors and can be planted outdoors on the east side of your house in the spring. They bloom the next year in Spring.
We are excited about our Farmers Market this year.
It will be held on a Friday night and a Saturday morning,
on the third weekend of the month from March to October 2021
