  A weekly blog from Tom Dayton....

May 27, 2016

A cool May has now suddenly become a summer with warming soils pushing the growth of vegetable plants and flowers.  Tomatoes and peppers just love the warm nights, too. There is a noticeable growth sprout that plants undergo as their cells divide and expand quickly.


Especially important at the nursery is a necessary constant check for blocked or maladjusted overhead sprinklers around the nursery stock as the 80+ weather and wind increases the transpiration of water through the plants leaves. 


So far, the irrigation water supply is more than adequate although at least one inch of rain per week would be enough to keep it replenished with collecting all the runoff from rain and irrigation. Read entire blog entry...

  Our greenhouse is bursting at the seams!  Flower & veggie flats, hanging baskets, tropicals, succulents, dahlias, flowering vines, 4" potted flowers in thrillers, spillers and fillers and so much more!
