Root Vegetables and Bare Roots

Hello everyone!  This is such an exciting time of year at Garden Supply.  Although Winter hasn’t quite relinquished its hold on us yet, Spring is arriving on a daily basis at the garden center.  Every time I pop by, I am wowed by the new plants and decor items that have appeared since my last visit. I am SO in the mood to plant!

Just in to the Greenhouse is a new shipment of bare root fruits and root vegetables.

In bare-root, we’ve got black raspberries, red raspberries, blueberries, and 3 types of grapes- Concord variety, Caco variety, and Niagara variety.  Also in are both Ever-Bearing and June Bearing strawberries plants. With 10 plants per bag, you are going to love the value of these strawberry packages.

We’ve also received a huge variety of root vegetables that is sure to please even the most discerning of gardeners.

There are  rhubarb roots, horseradish roots, shallots, red onions, yellow onions, white onions, sweet onions, garlic, and elephant garlic. Many are available in either convenient packages or bulk so you can mix and match.  Phew………….

And there’s more!  How about some potatoes?  We have packaged seed potatoes in Red Norland, Kennebec, Russets, and Red Pontiac varieties.  Asparagus in Purple Passion and M. Washington varieties as well as our handy-dandy bundles with a whopping 12 plants per bundle.

And don’t forget our other cold-loving vegetable plants already in, like carrots, Chinese cabbage, spinach, and mix-leaf lettuces.  They are moving out fast, but we still have some left.

Although all today’s plants and vegetables thrive planted directly in the ground, many also do very well in the container garden for those with little or no yards.  Even potatoes!  We have the perfect above-ground potato planter for the home gardener, that was featured in this month’s Cary Living Magazine.

With the Bosmere Potato Planter Bag, there’s no need for a garden.  No digging required.  You can plant between 3 to 5 seed potatoes per bag.  There’s a flap at the bottom that allows you to check your potatoes.  When the vegetables are ready, simply empty out the bag and enjoy the real taste of home-grown potatoes.  Garden Supply owner, Keith Ramsey, recommends planting potatoes, parsley, and chives all in one bag for an instant potato-bar garden.  That’s just brilliant, in my book!

We have lots more new items arriving every day!  Stop by and pay us a visit.  Our gardening experts are on hand to answer all your questions.  And I’ll see you back here tomorrow for more snippets from the garden.
