Now’s the time to Plant Potatoes
—and get 10% OFF on Potato Starts!

Potatoes

Have you ever tasted home-grown potatoes? Some say there is no comparison to store-bought potatoes. A small number of seed potatoes will yield a few buckets of potatoes ready to eat and enjoy, and can even be stored throughout the winter months. Now is the best time to start potatoes for a late summer or fall harvest, and you can save 10% on potato starts for the month of April. It’s easy to harvest them when grown in containers such as the Smart Pots or other larger containers that are easy to tip at harvest time. To prevent disease problems, do not plant potatoes in the same bed as tomatoes. You will need slightly acidic, well-draining soil, our Recipe 420 Potting Soil is a rich organic soil on sale for the month of April. The varieties we have on hand this spring include Yukon Nugget, Dark Red Norland, Rose Finn, Purple Majesty, Covington and French Fingerling.

April Garden Guide

Checkbox

Get your garden beds ready for spring and summer flowers and vegetables:

  1. 1. Select a sunny area that has a minimum of 6 hours of sun

  2. 2. Test your soil with a simple soil test kit to find the pH and nutrient levels of your soil.

  3. 3. Pull weeds before they set seed.

  4. 4. Double dig your soil and incorporate Gardner and Bloome Harvest Supreme or Planting Mix and Gardner & Bloome Fertilizers.

  5. 5. Set up a RainDrip Irrigation System.

  6. 6. Make a shopping list of varieties of veggies, herbs, and flowers that are known to perform best in your area. Let us give you some ideas!

Checkbox

Plant warm-season flowers and vegetables outside from seed or plant starts when temperatures at night are staying consistently at or above 50 degrees. Corn, beans, radishes, carrots and all other root crops are best sown from seed directly into the ground. It is educational and useful to use a Minimum-Maximum Thermometer at your home to monitor the low night-time temperatures in your own garden vs. the weather reports for the general area. You may be surprised to discover that you are in a warm pocket or micro-climate allowing you to get an earlier start on your summer garden.

Checkbox

Protect roses and tomatoes from diseases such as Powdery Mildew, Rust, Leaf Spots, and Blight by using organic Serenade Disease Control (OMRI).

Checkbox

Check your irrigation system; especially drip systems, to be sure all parts are working properly.

Checkbox

Bait for Slugs. Apply non-toxic Sluggo Snail and Slug Control. Re-apply at 2-week intervals for a total of three applications to help break their life cycle and to give you better control of these pests through the growing season. This eco-friendly product is safe to use around pets, wildlife and people.

Checkbox

Fertilize shrubs, trees, lawns, groundcover, etc., if you have not already done so this spring. We now offer a wide selection of organic fertilizers, including Gardner & Bloome, Dr. Earth, Fox Farm Happy Frog, E.B. Stone, Espoma, Whitney Farms, Whey 2 Grow and Sustane, plus Jobes and Miracle Grow.
