We have herbs in!! Some of the hardiest herbs have been brought in and it's sure fun to see! We sell only the best herbs from Fragro Plants in Chilliwack. It's a family run nursery who strive to grow plants with a natural balance. They take the time to hand grade all the plants before we pick them up!
What can you plant right now? Anything! Almost.... Anything we have outside (like fruit trees, perennials, flowering shrubs, evergreens, primula, pansies, etc.) can be planted and will get the best start now too! You'll want to watch out for heavy frosts like we had the last 2 nights, but that's no worry with a little crop cover over top and you're good to go! We cover our plants outside on the cool nights to protect them from frost, and this helps make them tougher too.
Fruit trees are here and the best selection is now! We generally only get one load of fruit trees and some varieties will sell out fast so now's the time. Right now you can buy them 'bareroot'. Which means they are not potted yet and they'll need to be planted as soon as you get them home. Before we pot them, which will likely be around the Easter Weekend, you can save 10%off the regular price. Fruit Trees are a great investment, we all spend money on nice, flowering trees that just look pretty. Fruit trees are nice, and pretty too, along with providing FOOD!!! Pretty cool! You can expect to get fruit in 2 to 3 years after you plant, so the best time to plant was 2 to 3 years ago, the second best time is today! (Fruit trees will arrive in Blind Bay after they are potted).
See you soon,
well the Lions will start soon and I can't wait,
