Now is the time of year for gardening catalogs to start arriving in your mailbox: seed catalogs, flower and plant catalogs, and tree and shrub catalogs. Over the next few months, I will be highlighting some of the various catalogs and presenting to you the items each catalog seems to specialize in. This week will be the Raintree Nursery:
By going to their website - http://www.raintreenursery.com - or with making a mail order, each customer can take $10 off their next order over $75.
This week the Raintree horticulturist has some important tips for care of your fruit garden. The topics are listed below:
• The Gift Certificate that helps sustain your family, friends and the planet: In celebration of Christmas or Chanukah and New Year's consider giving your loved ones their choice of edible plants.
• Fruit and Nut trees can provide healthy food for the next hundred years or more. It's a gift that is also a legacy.
• Contribute to locally grown, healthy food. It's a wonderful experience to plant an edible tree because as its planted thoughts are not just of the little tree but what it will become and provide in the future.
Remember, you order by phone at 800 - 391 - 8892 and their friendly staff will be happy to help you.
