Daily Tip for gardeners:

January 2015

January is the quietest month in the garden.But just because it looks quiet doesn't mean that nothing is happening. The soil, open to the sky, absorbs the pure rainfall while microorganisms convert tilled-under fodder into usable nutrients for the next crop of plants."
- Rosalie Muller Wright, Editor of Sunset Magazine,

We are always on the lookout for new and improved varieties of plants. We are excited about many new varieties which we will be offering this spring. We are constantly looking for new or improved varieties of  plants. Last summer we again visited trial gardens at the University of Georgia as well as, the Landisville PA plant trials and Rakers in Michigan. We are constantly looking for new varieties or improvements on existing varieties. In Athens Georgia at the University of Georgia Horticultural Gardens we were impressed by many annuals, particularly  sunpatiens, lantanas, vincas, and caladiums. If they withstand the heat of Georgia, they will certainly thrive in this area. We were impressed with the new series of Bounce impatiens which are resistant to downy mildew. Flower size and plant habit is somewhat similar to the regular garden impatiens which are susceptible to downy mildew. The Bounce series come a "Big Bounce" series of taller growers and a more compact version simply called "Bounce"

In upcoming monthly newsletters we will highlight these new and improved annuals. We will be increasing our selection of heirloom peppers and tomatoes as well.

We will be sending a separate newsletter about the new vegetable and herb varieties which we intend to offer this spring. It will be sent in early March. Also check our face book site with updates and featured new and recommended plant varieties.
