With the last (hopefully) snow on Monday April 30th and the warm thaw on May 1 our plants got a crucial drink of water to help them push leaves. As their roots wake up as the ground thaws you will start to see the leaf buds swell. It is time to think about pruning and clearing out the debris from the fall. Leaves and perennials should be cleaned up. It will help so much with keeping pests from the garden. Right now is a good time to cut out black knot, remember to sterilize with rubbing alcohol or bleach water after each cut and bag up and throw out what you trimmed off.
We are full of annuals and bedding plants and our perennials are ready. Come in and get a big dose of spring. The store looks beautiful.
Here at the Nursery and Garden Centre we are winterizing. Cutting back the perennials and shrubs. Watering all of our big trees heavily and wrapping the trunks to protect them against those pesky rabbits.
The unusual warm weather has extended the planting season for a lot of you. We have a big selection of trees and shrubs in stock. Hundreds of caliper trees to choose from as well as potted trees. Check out the ad at the end of this blog for our schedule and the details of the End of the Season Sale.
This weather is perfect for seeding lawns. You will have fantastic grass in spring. It is much cheaper than sod and really easy to do. If you are a Cannor Club member with us you can use our seed spreader, lawn rollers and rakes for free. We do still have grass seed and a wonderful corn gluten product. It works as a fertilizer and weed control. Very planet friendly and made in Alberta.
Our schedule is going to winter hours. This week we are still open to 6 pm. September 29 and 30, Saturday and Sunday is the last weekend we will be open this year. Starting Monday October 1 we will be open weekdays only 9 to 5 pm.
So as long as the weather holds fall is a good time for planting.
