Hello Gardener,
Welcome to Emerald Garden's Newsletter
 
 
 
 
 
 
FIRST SEMINAR OF THE YEAR
        March the 1st @ 1 pm
                    
How To Build A Wicking Bed
 
Our first seminar of the year is going to be covering the popular self watering Wicking bed.
Wicking beds are the best way to square foot garden and will yield more crop and use less water. Once built they are pleasing to look at and will last many years.
 Join us Saturday as we rebuilt a portion of our three year old wicking bed and learn how to make your own.  Wicking Beds tend to work best with top fruiting plants and vegetables,  how ever shallow root vegetables are fine as well.  With watering needed as little as once every week or two in the heat of the summer this is the ideal raised garden bed for Texas.
We will cover site location, materials, plants choices and construction.

 
Plant Profile
Globe Mallow
 
    This native perennial has a relaxed, sprawling form that mixes well with other desert plants.
Although a light orange flower color is the most common, other color selections have been
made from wild populations, ranging from pink to red to white to lavender.  
Globe mallow may start to look rangy after flowering, and should be
cut back to about six inches tall in the early fall. Soon after, it will regenerate from the woody base, quickly reaching a height and width of three feet in one growing season. 
The small, grayish-green, three lobed leaves are covered with tiny hairs
that can be irritating to some people. Be sure to wear gloves and long sleeves when pruning
this plant! Globe mallow is extremely drought tolerant.
This plant stayed evergreen and is blooming after seeing 12-14 degrees this winter.

 NEW WHOLESALE PRICING FORMAT:
AS we continue to evolve in this business we have decided to re-focus and make changes to the nursery to stream line our operation and serve our wholesale customers better. We will begin pricing plants that come in flats
with "by the flat"  pricing. This will reduce pricing for everyone and allow for fresher inventory. Please plan to purchase your smaller plants by the flat when ever possible. Other plants more commonly used in landscapes will be less expensive and available in larger numbers. We will continue to serve all our customers to the best of our ability. Please allow us a little patience as we move forward. Come see the changes to the nursery to allow room for more plants and frequent restocking.
