PAYNE’S HAS THESE BEAUTIFUL TREES IN STOCK, JUST IN TIME FOR FALL PLANTING!
These trees will produce a dazzling array of red autumn leaves. Thanks to their exceptional form, branching, deep green summer foliage, alkaline soil tolerance, heat resistance and adaptability, they have become very popular trees in Northern New Mexico.
Gorgeous FRESH RED RISTRAS available at both locations!
Stop by 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!
ORGANIC Ristras available at the South Store!
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.
Each week, we’ll give you three tips on what to do in the garden during the month of October! Here’s this week’s tips:
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.
As 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.
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.

As our temperatures begin to drop, many of our customers start asking what blooming plants can be brought indoors for the winter. The standard answer is almost always Geraniums. But, there are others that do well, such as Impatiens, Coleus and Begonias.
You can bring in an existing pot or dig the plant out of the garden. Make sure that the pot is large enough to accommodate an ever growing plant. Place your plants in a bright location away from drafts. In the case of the geranium, it can get direct sunlight. I suggest fertilizing the plant once a month with a half strength fertilizer. Be careful not to over water as the plant will not be taking up moisture as quickly as it did in the garden. Do not let the pot sit in water either. Seeing a touch of color through the Winter creates a different atmosphere in the home bringing in warmth and beauty for all to enjoy.
Last week, the Garden Guru mentioned that it’s time to bring in your houseplants that have been living outdoors for the Summer!
The Garden Guru suggested that the first thing you should do is inspect your plants very carefully for insects. Insects can be pretty tricky. They can hide underneath the leaf or where the leaf attaches to the stem. They can crowd themselves down in that little bitty space and they’re hard to see — so you really need to go over them carefully and make sure that they don’t have any insects on them before you bring them back in the house. A secondary precaution that Lynn suggests to do before you bring in those houseplants is… well, LISTEN to Lynn’s tip to find out!
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.
