There's Still Much You Can Do Over Winter

Finishing leaf cleanup, feed birds, warm bird water, early crabgrass prevention, organic landscape fertilization, and much, much more. Come by for tips and supplies to keep your garden healthy and animals happy over the winter.

Be Sure to Water Evergreens
This winter has been dryer than normal, so make sure your evergreens stay watered. A great way is to leave a bucket of water outside, let it freeze, then put the block of ice near the base of the evergreen. The block will melt and provide excellent time-released moisture. You can also take out your sprinkler for a quick winter's romp; just make sure to empty it and put it away afterwards!
Start Planning Spring Planting
Have questions about what/where/when, sizing, consultations, design, pricing, spring 'wake up,' and more? Stop by Hartke Nursery for help setting up your plan for spring.
Keep an Eye Out for Witchhazel
Witch hazel may bloom on warmer winter days, providing a splash of color to the season. Be sure to keep it watered and enjoy the view.
Forcing Paper Whites
Like a little touch of spring! Start with a non-porous container 3+ inches deep and 4+ inches wide. Fill with gravel, marbles, pebbles or any material that the bulb can root into to a depth of aprox. 3-5 inches. Press the bulb point side up halfway, 'nesting' into the base material. Add water until it touches the bulb. Add water as necessary to keep the bulb just wet, and in 1-2 weeks, the leaves will grow. Soon after, the bloom will open. After the bloom is done, dipose and if you'd like, replant a new bulb.

"There's something nostalgic about visiting Hartke Nursery. Perhaps it's the red wagons Hartke uses as shopping carts; those antique Radio Flyers really take you back. Or maybe it's the old farmhouse that Hartke uses as its office. Whatever it is, this sprawling Olivette Nursery almost seems too good to be true."- Riverfront Times
