Pruning Fruit Trees

Most fruit trees benefit from yearly pruning in late winter or early spring. Pruning when trees are dormant or before they leaf out in the spring helps prevent the spread of disease. Join us with George W. Cutting III at 10 a.m. Saturday 3/23/19 to get hands on experience pruning a mature apple tree.

Botanical Interests® Organic and Heirloom Seeds – A Colorado Based Company

Time to plant garden peas, beets, carrots, lettuces, poppies, sweet peas, and violas outside.

Garden peas, beets, lettuces, and carrots all prefer to be directly sown and do not transplant well. The time to plant these outside is 2-4 weeks before your last frost date.

Violas, sweet peas, and poppies like to be planted where they are going to grow. They can go into the ground or outdoor containers 4-6 weeks before your last frost date.

It’s also time to start other seedlings indoors or in your greenhouse. We have plenty of seeds in stock!


Black Gold® Seedling Mix (OMRI)

The best seedling mix for germinating seeds and propagating cuttings. The mix is designed to promote better root development in young plants.

Black Gold® Seedling Mix uses a careful blend of Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss (which has been double-screened to remove larger particles and sticks); fine perlite and vermiculite to give seedlings and cuttings the aeration and moisture retention they need to develop a good root system. An organic wetting agent ensures rapid water penetration, and the fine texture encourages high germination and rooting.
