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

WE ARE OPEN WITH REGULAR HOURS: DAILY 9 TO 5, SUNDAY 10-4.

We have Erosion Control seed and Annual Rye seed to use to stabilize areas that were burned.

We were fortunate and the fires were held about one to two miles from us. We did get evacuated and were not able to conduct business for several days, but we are now past that and open with regular hours and a full inventory for fall planting.

For areas that may have been burned, we carry quick cover erosion control seed mix and annual rye seed for customers who may have been in the burn areas and need to stabilize areas for the winter. These both come up quickly and will help to stabilize burned areas for the winter.
Erosion control mix is $2.60 per pound. A pound covers 1200 sq. ft. or 35 lbs. per acre.

Annual Rye is $1.10 per pound and a pound covers 100 sq. ft. It is 435 lbs. per acre.

We generally have a couple hundred pounds of each in stock. If you are in need of seed for erosion control, please let me know and we can order it if we don’t have it in stock and have it within a week or so.

REMEMBER THAT FALL IS THE BEST TIME FOR PLANTING!

We have a large selection of trees and shrubs for fall planting. With the cooler nights and still warm days, plants get well established in the fall and over the winter and will thrive next spring and summer.

We hope to see you soon,

Jeff

BRING A DONATION AND GET 15% OFF YOUR PURCHASE

We are helping two teachers from Foothill School raise donations to help those impacted by the fire in our community. I am paraphrasing what they are doing but this is it.

Two Foothill School teachers will be doing a donation drop off drive thru behind the Edward Jones office on First Street in Marysville on Saturday the 14th from noon till 4 pm AND WE WILL BE ACCEPTING DONATIONS NOW THROUGH SUNDAY THE 15th.

We are accepting new items from clothing, to pet supplies, to livestock equipment, kids sporting goods, household linens, any and everything you can think of that is new that will help. We will also be accepting Gift Cards and an account is being set up for cash donations. These two teachers have asked us if we can help and we are acting as a drop off location to help with the kids and others with recovery from this devastating fire.

We are offering 15% off all in stock purchases now through Sunday with the donation of a new item for this cause. If you don’t need any plants, you are welcome to drop off donations anyway.

Hope to see you soon,

Jeff
