April 2020 by Scott Canning, Director of Horticulture and Special Projects My thoughts these days turn to vegetable gardening, and the revived interest I see in the ‘Victory Garden’ movements of the two World Wars means I am not alone. Seed companies cannot keep up with the demand; Johnny’s Select Seeds says “…seeds are the [...]

March’s Garden Chores

2020-02-25T14:09:01-07:00

March 2020 by Scott Canning, Director of Horticulture and Special Projects Last year at this time, I warned gardeners not to “jump the gun” on working in garden beds that are still wet.

2020-01-30T15:35:08-07:00

February 2020 by Scott Canning, Director of Horticulture and Special Projects Winter means SEEDS! As I wrote last year, growing from seed has some distinct advantages over other means of propagation. A packet of seeds can hold dozens to thousands of potential plants, and you probably have a mailbox full of seed catalogs, or websites [...]
