Order spring and summer crop transplants

M R Gardens' 2015 Pre-Season Prep plant list and order form are now available!

I anticipate that Vates kale, Champion collards, Brussels sprouts and Chinese cabbage seedlings will be ready for pickup by April 1, depending on weather.

Chinese cabbage transplants - still a bit young but will be ready in a month.
Summer crop transplants, which I expect to be ready by Mother's Day, include heirloom tomato slicers, disease-resistant tomato slicers, cherry tomatoes, plum ("Roma") tomatoes, tomatillos, ground cherries, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant and basil. Click here to view photos of some of the varieties. I'm running a trial of several medicinal herbs, beneficial flowers and native perennials, so as those become available, I'll let you know.

Your orders for spring and summer crops are due Wednesday, March 18. Request an order form by emailing or calling 828.333.4151.

To encourage folks to save and scrub their plastic pots, I'm upping the washed recycled pots discount to 50-cents-off each plant for every returned container! Bring all the pots that you have to receive 50 cents off each plant you buy or accumulate credits toward the purchase of next season's plants. Preferred sizes are 3 to 5" square pots or 4 x 1" cell pots, and all sizes of flats to carry the plants. Thanks for decreasing the amount of plastic added to the landfill!
