In Pursuit of Delicious Fruit!
Your Fruit Tree Questions Answered - Virtually!

Tap-tap ... is this thing on? Comin' atcha with our first Zoom. Talk. Ever! We're excited to welcome back our dedicated and beloved FRUIT TREE GENIUS Phil Pursel of Dave Wilson Nursery on January 30 at 11 am via a virtual Zoom session.

January is the perfect time to plant bare-root fruit trees and potted berries and Phil is going to give us the skinny on what we need to do to select, plant, prune and protect new and established trees. And, for the first time ever, anyone and everyone can follow along!

Register in advance and save your spot by clicking HERE.

After registering, you'll get a confirmation email with info on how to join the meeting.

Demand for fruit trees has been fierce, so selection is first come, first served in the nursery ONLY and we can't hold, pre-order or sell these babies to you over the phone. We DO, however, have another delivery of bare-root trees coming soon and hope to have them in stock by Phil's talk. Check out what we DO have right now (and see what's coming) HERE.

Annnd ... plant some hardy annuals NOW for Spring WOW!

We've already talked about planting "Giant Poppies" and "Sweet Peas" in the last couple of weeks, and we're here to remind you that NOW is the best to get the rest of their HARDY ANNUAL brethren in the ground for a glorious Spring bloom-a-thon! These frost-tolerant toughies pooh-pooh our cool, wet Winter weather (USDA zones 8 and up) and they're some of the showiest plants in all of the gardening world – blooming their hearts out all Spring long if you plant them early and deadhead faded flowers to keep the bloom alive.

And the best part? Our open-pollinated plants are never treated with growth regulators or neo-nicotinoids and self-sow for successive generations of FREE PLANTS! Plant no later than mid-February and you'll be rewarded with a glorious garden and armloads of cut flowers, just when all your neighbors are heading to the garden centers!
