Some of the tasks that can be done now is to spray and prune your trees.  Once with dormant oil, which will run into the cracks and crevices of bark and twigs.  It will coat overwintering insects and their eggs to suffocate them.  Dormant oil is a non-chemical means of insect control.  The other product needed is a fungicide.  Copper is a non-chemical organic and will keep scab, blights, mildews, black spot and more from developing.  If you do no other insect or disease control all year, this is the one task that you should not miss.  Dormant oil and fungicide.  You won’t regret it.  We carry both products here for your convenience.

One of the best things about our side of Washington is our mild weather.  We can do things in the garden year ’round.  If you can dig a hole, you can plant.  Frozen?  It’s only an inch or two deep, so just wait a day or two.  That said, we need to acknowledge that this January freeze was an abnormal occurrence.  In 25 years of operating a nursery, we’ve only seen such a prolonged freeze one other time.  This is the time of year that we do most of our planting here simply because we have the time.  Our gardens are proof of year ’round plantings.

We keep a nice selection of plants in stock all year. This makes it easy to space your garden tasks throughout the year rather than feeling overwhelmed.
