Healthy Eating in the New Year

Grapefruit 2542947 1280

Did you make a New Year's Resolution to eat better, fresher, less-processed food? If so, you'll want to visit us soon to find plenty of fresh, healthy eats you can grow at home.


For starters, January is a great month for planting Citrus. We have Meyer and Eureka Lemon trees/bushes loaded with ripening fruit so hurry in to see these gems. Plant them in the ground or containers and enjoy the treat of homegrown fresh fruit from your very own trees!

As winter hits, our current cooler weather makes now a great time to plant Deciduous Fruit Trees since these stone fruit trees will soon lose their leaves for the winter season. This means that when you transplant your new tree into the ground or a container now, it won't suffer from transplant shock since it is already in its natural process of losing its leaves for winter.

Now is also a great time to plant Blueberry Bushes. Ask one of our Garden Design Experts for assistance. They're ready to help you.
