IRON YOUR TREES!

ironplus-1As part of soil preparation in the Fall, Payne’s recommends using iron sulfate this time of year. Sprinkle it on now so that it can slowly acidify the soil and therefore release nutrients that are locked up and unavailable to your plants. It is very beneficial for trees, flower beds, gardens and grass.

Contains a pelletized material that will turn Yellow plants and grasses Green fast. Will not burn when used as directed.

Application Rates: 

  • Water thoroughly after application.
  • Shrubs: 4 tablespoons per average shrub in top 2-4 inches of soil.
  • Trees: 12 tablespoons for trees up to 3 inches in trunk diameter. 16 tablespoons for trees with 4 inches or more in trunk diameter…equally applied in holes 10 to 12 inches deep around the drip line of tree.
  • Caution: Will stain concrete and pavement!

The above application rates are for Hi-Yield Iron Plus Soil Acidifier.On ALL products ALWAYS read and follow label directions!

ACC_RISTRA_zina-1

Stop by the either location for a beautiful selection of fresh Ristras, grown and hand-made right here in New Mexico! There are three sizes to choose from!

Make sure that your Ristra hasn’t been sprayed with pesticides or preserved with chemicals such as lacquer. Many times, vendors spray the Ristra to make it last as an ornamental feature or for decoration and therefore not recommended for eating.

PAYNE’S handmade Ristras are not sprayed with any products/chemicals and therefore are perfect for using in your culinary creations.

So BRING ON THE RED CHILE and POSOLE!

THIS WEEK’S TIP FOR OCTOBER!

pumpkinsz-1

Here’s this weeks three tips on what to do in the garden during the month of October! 

  • Dig up the tubers and bulbs of tender summer-flowering bulbs and put them into storage for the winter. Such bulbs include tuberous begonias, caladiums, crocosmias, dahlias, gladioli, and tuberoses.
  • Before a heavy frost, bring indoors any garden containers that are not frost-proof. Before storing them, wash them out with hot soapy water to which a few tablespoons of bleach have been added. Rinse well and allow to air-dry before stacking.
  • Pot up paperwhite narcissi for holiday bloom indoors. Daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips may also be potted now for indoor bloom.

FALL IS IN THE AIR!

As the fall crops leave our greenhouses, I turn my attention to the poinsettias. As they get bigger, they start to crowd out all the other plants in the greenhouse. First we have just 4 tables, then 8, then 12 and now we are moving them all the way forward.

What makes Payne’s the place for customers to buy their poinsettias, is that they can come in now and place their orders, have them tended to in-house and be ready for them to take home in December. No need to stress over whether they will find any suitable plants in the box stores. Plus we have many colors and sizes. We do still have a good selection of garden mums, pansies and ornamental kale.

HAPPY GARDENING!

radiogg2017

Last week, the Garden Guru said Fall is the best time of year to plant bulbs of tulips, hyacinth, crocuses and daffodils in order to enjoy their fireworks of colorful blooms come Spring.

Lynn mentioned that Payne’s gets their bulbs directly from Holland and only deals with the reputable companies that know what they are doing! Lynn also said that if you buy bulbs from a discount store they will most likely be half the price…  but probably are half the size of the premium bulbs that you would buy from Payne’s. Listen to Lynn’s show on what to look for when buying a bulb!

Tune in every Friday on KHFM Radio (95.5 FM) between 4 and 5 pm you’ll hear Lynn Payne’s tip of the week. The “Garden Guru” himself provides information on different topics including gardening tips, fun facts about plants, how to plant and prepare your garden for each season and special announcements.
