June Classes

We had a small turn-out on Sunday for the Container Garden class. The wind was horrible, so we appreciate those who stayed. Our next class will be on Sunday, June 12 at noon. This class on Composting,  will be given by Ralph Anderson. He is an Albuquerque Master Gardener, a Master Composter and a member of the Mountain Garden Club in the East Mountains. He will discuss the best ways to compost here in New Mexico, and will answer all your composting questions!!

We will be open Monday, May 30, Memorial Day, from 10am - 5pm. We have all the veggie plants out, plenty of annuals and hardy perennials. We also have vines, grasses, shrubs and trees. Check out the bag goods area, there is potting soil, composted cotton burr, humax and wood mulch. If there is something you are looking for that we don't have, we will try to find it for you.

May in the Mountains

May is always an unpredictable month. With the snow and freezing weather, it's hard to tell customers when to plant. Our next class will be on Sunday, May 29 at noon. We will be discussing container gardens. It will be a hands on class, so feel free to bring your pots or containers and we can help you decide what to plant.
