What's Blooming! Dec 2016

 whatsblooming 

 

 

Winter is coming to South Texas - and with the number of mango trees we have with blooms already, we are hoping this is another mild winter for us.  We have started to work on Mango Fiestival #9.  If you are interested in being a part of the terrific group that makes this event happen please drop us a line.  We could never put together this without this group - it means a lot to Ed and I to work with so many Mango Lovers.

And did you notice the changing signage by the office door.  Each month we have been posting things you need to do with your fruit trees for that month (and what you should have done the previous month along with what you will need to be doing the next month.) If you do not have a “monoculture” orchard and your fruit trees are already established, then you are like us - trying to remember which trees need what when.  Things like—no nitrogen on Mangos and Longans after August and March is the only time to put it on the Sugar Apples.  And then there are all those other elements to remember along with what pests and diseases to be on the lookout for.  So we are sharing our information with you at the Nursery along with suggestions on the types of products you might find helpful.  Be sure to check out our information for a 3 month cycle.  (Sorry—this is a self-directed project so no phone calls please.)

Amazingly - all 3 of our honey extractions from this year have sold out.  It has been great working with the guys from Iron Bee Apiary.  Because their focus is preserving the local honey bee populations they have wonderful and truly local honey.  Right now we do have honey harvested from the upper Valley area which was from bees pollinating wild flowers and late citrus blooms.  If local honey is on your shopping list, do stop by.

And if you are working oon your gift list for the Holidays, think fruit!  It is easy to share some of our South Texas Sunshine with friends and family with a box of fruit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please Note

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.
