What's Blooming! February 2017

Spring comes quick to South Texas most years but Wow!  Instead of marking February 15 as the start of spring it looks like it may have started the end of January.  It has been a rush to finish the 'must do pruning' like on Sugar Apples before they begin to flush.  They were finished in the nick of time but there are lots of others in line for trimming.

There are always of plenty of chores at the start of spring besides pruning.  Nearly everything needs a good feeding this time of year - make sure you are getting the right stuff to your plants.  If you are wondering what you should be doing for your fruit trees - check out the display by the Nursery Office door.  Each month we have been posting things you need to do with your fruit trees for that month along with what you will need to be doing the next month.

Don't forget to be checking for pests and diseases.  Do make sure you apply the right thing for the problem your plant might be having  i.e.  an insecticide won't help a fungal disorder.  

As we do every spring, we have Grafting Workshops in February.  Pre-registration is required.  You can email us directly for enrollment instructions.

Our next Farm Tour will be on Saturday, March 11.  This event starts with a sampling of our current harvest and other food items made from our fruits.  Then participants will take a stroll through the orchard to see first hand producing trees like Starfruit, Mangos, Sapodillas, Bananas, and tropical cherries along with many other fruits.  And March is the height of citrus bloom so it will be a walk with the fragrance of citrus filling the air.  Advance reservations are required for this also.

The Hong Kong Orchid is decked out in full bloom now.  For those of you who only spend winters with us - this is the perfect tree.  With its nearly 6 months of flowers during the winter, you probably won't be missing all that cold, snow and ice back home.

Whether you are looking for the right avocado for your yard or just want to try your hand at growing something other than citrus, check out our trees.  We are the Valley Nursery with World-Wide Appeal.

Because Tropical and Subtropical Fruit trees require conditions that are sometimes not typical in our region or yours, we cannot be responsible for our plants once they leave the nursery.

*Currently we do not ship plants or fruit to California.

*Items over 3 gallons are sold for pick-up only. They will not be shipped.
