January 2020 Newsletter, Fruit Tree Pruning Classes

Bare root season is now in full swing. We have our fruit trees in stock now and are selling briskly. Bare root shade trees will be in within a couple of weeks and a few more miscellaneous fruit trees. Blueberries, cane berries, figs, and pomegranates in pots are in as well.
Most standard sized fruit trees and semi-dwarf fruit trees are $25.00. There are exceptions. Complete price lists for bare root fruit trees and bare root shade trees are available at the nursery or via email by request.

Bare root season goes now through the end of February. The selection of fruit trees is very large, but don’t wait till the end of the season to shop. Once a variety is sold out, it is gone until next year’s bare root season. At the end of February, the trees that are left, which should be few, are potted up and sold later in the year and the price is higher after we pot them.

We also still have our full regular inventory for whatever you might need.Bare root roses are now available as well.

We have a large selection of roses to choose from. We sell them bare root until the end of February and after that they are sold only in pots.

  • Roses are $18.00 bare root or $22.00 in pots.
  • 36″ Tree Roses are $45.00 each, staked and in pots.
  • 24″ Tree Roses are $31.50 each, staked and in pots.
  • 36″ Twofer Tree Roses $49.00 (Two varieties on one trunk)

Again, complete list is available via email or can be picked up at the nursery.

It’s time for the second dormant spraying on your fruit trees if you have not done it already. Use copper mixed with horticultural oil or Neem oil and spray the entire tree including the trunk. If you have not done any spraying yet, get one done now and wait a couple of weeks and do the second and then the third and final spraying should be done in February just before bud break. I spray all trees in the orchard to help kill overwintering insects and to help prevent diseases such as leaf curl and fireblight. It helps to reduce aphid problems in the spring as well.

Onion Plants Will be Arriving the second week of January

We will have the following:

  • Candy (Yellow Globe Shape, Sweet, Hybrid)
  • Red Candy Apple (Deep Red, Flat Globe Shape, Sweet, Hybrid)
  • Walla Walla (Yellow, Semi Flat Shape, Sweet)
  • Yellow Spanish (Globe Shape, Mild)
  • Red Wing (Red, Globe Shape, Slightly Pungent)
  • Red Torpedo Tropea (Red, Torpedo Shape, Sweet)
  • Onions are $5.50 per bunch. There are 50-75 plants per bunch.

We will be having our fruit tree pruning classes later this month.

  • Fruit Tree Pruning Class Dates
  • January 18th and 19th @ 10am
  • January 25th @ 10 am
  • February 1st @10 am

All classes are free of charge. No reservation is necessary. Free coffee and hot chocolate is available at the classes.

I will demonstrate pruning of fruit trees and also will demonstrate the pruning of roses for the late winter early spring season. The demonstration usually lasts about an hour or so and I will answer any questions you may have. If we have rain on any of the dates, we will reschedule since we have them here at the nursery orchard and prune the trees in the orchard.

We hope to see you soon for your bare root or other planting needs and at one or more of the fruit tree pruning classes.

December 2019 Newsletter

Lots of things going on in December. Our bare root roses are due in the week of December 9th. They should be ready to sell by the end of the week next week. Maybe sooner. The bare root fruit trees will be in very soon. We will begin working them as soon as they arrive, usually the week before Christmas, but I don’t have that confirmed yet, and should be ready for sale right after Christmas, if all goes well. Maybe even right before. Depends on when we get our delivery. I will send out emails as soon as things are in and ready to go. Complete lists of fruit trees and roses are available at the nursery, or request one and I can send it to you via email.
If you are wanting bare root fruit trees, don’t delay when they arrive. We have already pre- sold lots of fruit trees. We usually don’t re-order unless it is a substantial quantity and depending on availability. So when things are gone, they are likely gone for the year. Also, we cannot hold any items without payment. You can pre-order from our list and pay, and we will tag them and set them aside so you are sure to get what you want. And then you can pick them up when you are ready as long as they are picked up before the end of February. We cannot hold any fruit trees without payment in full.

Dormant Spraying

Fruit trees should have lost their leaves by now. Your first dormant spraying should have been done last week or this week. Work around the rain. If you have not done it, you should get your first dormant spraying done. Use copper mixed with horticultural oil or neem oil and spray the entire tree. Spray all of your deciduous fruit trees. Even if leaf curl is not an issue, it will help to prevent other diseases and to kill overwintering insects. Be sure you get this done 3 times throughout the dormant season. The second application is due around Christmas and the third should be done around Valentines day. Watch your trees closely for the third application. If we have a warm February, they may start to break dormancy early. The last application needs to be done before the trees bloom.

Blueberries, Cane Berries, Figs, Pomegranates, and Dogwoods, living Christmas Trees, and nice Japanese Maples are all In.

We have a nice selection of blueberries and cane berries in now. When you plant blueberries, be sure to add soil sulfur and acid fertilizer. If you want to grow them in pots, which works very well, mix potting soil with fir bark and peet moss, 1/3 ratio of each, and add sulfur and acid fertilizer to the mix and you can grow them in pots. Pots or raised beds work much better for blueberries than straight into the ground because of the heavy clay soil. Now is a great time to plant blueberries and cane berries while the selection is good and the ground is soft.

And our inventory is full for whatever else you may want and if we don’t have it, we can usually get it within a week.

Frost Cloth

The nights can get cold this time of year. Be sure to protect frost sensitive plants when temperatures get down to freezing. We have a bulk roll that is 12’x 250′ which we sell for $1.00 a lineal foot. So we can measure off just what you need. We also have pre-packaged 10×12 size. It is $13.49 per package.

Gift Certificates

We sell gift certificates for holiday giving. If you can’t make it in, we can sell them over the phone and mail them to you or to the recipient. Just call and let us know the amount and pay over the phone and we will send it. Or you can come in and buy it.

We will be closed the 24th and 25th for Christmas and will be closed the 1st of January for New Year.

We hope to see you soon
Jeff

Thanksgiving Hours & Dormant Spraying Of Fruit Trees

We will be closed Thursday the 28th and Friday the 29th for Thanksgiving. We will be back Saturday the 30th at 8 am.

Time for the first of three dormant spray applications.

Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentines Day are the three dates to remember for dormant spray applications on your fruit trees, The first application should be done this week or very soon after. As soon as the rain stops and the trees have lost their leaves. Use Liquicop mixed with Horticultural Oil or Neem Oil. Spray the entire tree. Spray all your deciduous fruit trees in your orchard to prevent leaf curl, reduce the chance of fireblight and kill overwintering insects. Healthier trees will be the result next spring.

Kind regards,
Jeff Rice


Living Christmas Trees, White Dogwoods, Paeony, Hosta, Mugho Pines, are now in

DORMANT SPRAY REMINDER

The first dormant spray for your fruit trees is coming up soon. They should lose their leaves very soon and as soon as they do, it is time for the first dormant spray of the season. Use copper mixed with horticultural oil or Neem oil. Spray the entire tree. This is to prevent leaf curl and any fungus problems that may come up. It will also help to prevent or minimize fireblight.

The next application will be in December right around Christmas.
