Hellebores for Winter Blooms

HelleboreEven  in our coldest months we can enjoy the bloom of hellebore, some of which bloom in the dead of winter — its common name is the Christmas Rose. These attractive evergreen perennials thrive in shady gardens. For more info and some beautiful pictures check Hellebores.org.

Fall Berries

Fall is not just about fall flowers and colorful leaves – many plants set fruit in the fall, including coralberries, snowberries and serviceberries. In the nursery this October we are enjoying the colorful coralberry ‘Amethyst’ and the porcelain vine, both putting on a fall show of berries.

Tomato Trouble

Tomato blossom end rot is caused by a calcium deficiency, so if your tomatoes are Blossom End Rotdeveloping blossom end rot (see pic) treat with Rot-Stop, Master Nursery Tomato & Vegetable Food, Dr. Earth Organic Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer, Garden Elements Organic All-Purpose Plant Food or other products containing calcium. Collect your empty eggshells and bury them in your veggie bed for long-term results.

If your tomatoes aren’t setting much fruit try Tomato & Blossom Set Spray. It contains a plant hormone that will promote flowering and increase blossom set, so more tomatoes for your salsa!
