Fall plants for your garden

M R Gardens in the Oakley community opens its greenhouse to the public on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. September through October 21 or until supplies last.

We're now offering fall plants for half-off! 

Three types of kale: Vates, Winter Red and Lacinato
Fall plants that are available include broccoli raab, Chinese cabbage, cilantro, collards, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard greens, pak choi, as well as herbs and native perennials. Most varieties are pictured here:

You can reserve your plants on the Square site, and you only pay the upfront deposit rather than full price. If you can’t pick up your plants Saturday, we can arrange another time.

We aim for as sustainable as possible, which means not only using organic growing methods but also growing in a passive solar greenhouse heated entirely by solar gain and cooled with manual vents.

The greenhouse is at 441 Onteora Blvd. Contact Megan at 828.333.4151 or with questions.
