Ready for Spring!
The back greenhouse is officially open and in addition to the huge selection of annuals, vegetables, planters, and more that are just here waiting for that warm weather, we’re featuring 25% off this week on magnolia, japanese maple and rhododendron. They are hardened off and can be planted now.
Christmas 2016 will be here before we know it and our cut Christmas trees are in stock and ready to go home! We have Balsam Fir and Fraser Fir available and we’re conveniently located for people looking for live Christmas trees in the Oakville, Milton, Mississauga and Georgetown areas. (*please call the store at 905-878-0722 to check for availability as we get closer to Christmas).
Though the differences are subtle, the needles on a Fraser Fir appear flattened with a groove on the top side and their colouring tends to show two silvery bands on the lower edge. The needles are 1/2 to one-inch long and are usually dark green in color. In contrast, Balsam Fir needles appear in two rows on each side of a branch and areabout 3/4- to 1 1/2-inch long. Balsam needles are more circular and usually dark green on top and lighter underneath. Christmas tree sizes and varieties are as follows:
Premium Grade 1 Balsam Fir
5-6 ft. – $30
7-8 ft. – $45
8-9 ft. – $55
Premium Grade 1 Fraser Fir
6-7 ft. – $70
7-8 ft. – $80
8-9 ft. – $90

Just in case you missed our past posts on planting bulbs, here is a little more information on what to do:
First of all, consider where in your garden are you planning to plant? Since these bulbs will be flowering before the trees are in leaf, you’ll likely have a sunny location. How large is the area? Spring flowers generally look best when planted in clumps. You can mix colour or keep it uniform. When selecting bulbs, you’ll want to choose healthy and large size bulbs. As a rule of thumb, the larger the bulb (considering its type), the better the flower in the Spring.
Position bulbs pointed end up, the pointed end is their stem. If a pointed end is not obvious, then don’t worry about it, just plant the bulb and the stem will naturally find its own way up. The planting hole should be three times deeper than the height of the bulb. For example, if you have a 6.5-centimetre daffodil bulb, then dig your hole 20 centimetres deep and then plant. You may wish to mix some bone meal with the soil, but if you’re starting with good soil already, it shouldn’t be necessary – just an option to encourage root growth.
To prevent the squirrels stealing your newly planted bulbs try outsmarting them by concentrating your bulb plantings in large groups, and then flooding the soil with water after you’ve planted them. This will help to “erase” the marks you leave behind when planting and will also help to close any air pockets you created in planting. To further disguise the bulb locations, you should cover them with approximately five centimetres of leaves and branches. Some avid gardeners suggest that you plant heavy with the daffodils because squirrels don’t tend to like them as much – not sure if this is true or not, but since they are on sale 40% off here at Jade Gardens anyway, maybe its worth a try!
Finally, don’t forget to mark where you’ve planted so that you don’t forget where you’ve already planted. Then you can sit back and be ready to enjoy the fruits of your labour, come spring.
