News for the Nursery: Week of September 9, 2013

News for the week of September 8, 2013

City Farmer’s Nursery will be closed Saturday, September 14. Thank you for understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience. We will be open Sunday, September 15 and then will resume our regular hours of Tuesday through Sunday, 9-5.

If you plant in September, remember to do so in the coolest parts of the day, and keep your new plants watered!

We have some wonderful plants to suggest this week (please call to be sure of availability):

1 gallon Jerusalem artichokes: $5.99 each.

This is not an artichoke, and is native to North America! Also called a sunchoke. Blooms pretty daisy-like flowers. The tubers can be a substitute for potatoes.

1 gallon Mexican papaya: $9.99

2 gallon Moringa tree: $22.89

Also known as the tree of life.

1 gallon bay leaf: $8.99.

Can be grown as a hedge, trained as a tree, or kept in a pot. Useful in sauces, stews, and stocks. Once established, thrives with low amounts of water!

1 gallon lemon grass: $6.99.

Lemongrass has many uses, particularly in teas, soups and curries. Grows well here with a little regular water.
