THINK AND PLANT FOR SPRING! OUR FALL BULBS ARE HERE!


OUR FALL BULBS ARE HERE!

Payne’s sells ONLY the biggest, highest quality Holland-grown bulbs to make sure you get the largest, longest-lasting, most brilliantly colored blooms.

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.
Stop by either store and choose from our great selection!

TJ’s TIP: Don’t forget to sprinkle a little bulb food or bone meal in the hole while you are planting the bulbs and also sprinkle a little more on the soil surface to assure healthy growth. Of course, we have both bulb food and bone meal!

Beautiful Organic Ristras are in stock at Payne’s SOUTH only! Hurry in because these Ristras will go fast!

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


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


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.


So BRING ON THE RED CHILE and POSOLE!

ASK THE GARDEN GURU?


THE AUTUMNAL EQUINOX JUST PASSED. WHAT SHOULD WE BE DOING NOW?

ANOTHER GREAT QUESTION!

In this week’s archived show from previous years, the Garden Guru says it’s time to get back in the Garden and plant vegetables!! 

There are several vegetable varieties that can be planted now! Such as lettuce and spinach, and especially root crops such as beets, carrots and radishes. These root veggies really enjoy this Fall weather. What happens is that the soil heats up during the day and then when the sun goes down, the soil is still warm so the roots can really get established. Listen to Lynn’s show and find out why Fall crops are more intense?

HAPPY GARDENING!

WHAT TO DO NOW IN SEPTEMBER! FALL IS FOR PLANTING – PART 1

Fall is a great season for planting hardy trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and bulbs!

Here are some great reasons why:
Temperatures are more moderate, which means less moisture loss through leaves and less plant stress. Continue watering as needed.
Weeds are less competition for new plantings. Annual weeds should be removed now, before they go to seed. Perennial weeds can be killed off more effectively with weed killers in the Fall than in the Spring.

Check back next week for Part 2!

WE ARE ALWAYS PLANNING AND PLANTING MONTHS AHEAD OF THE CURRENT SEASON.
 
Now that the garden mums and pansies have started to sell, it is time to concentrate on the Poinsettia crop we planted in July – yes, July. We have many varieties started for the upcoming season including some with variegated leaves and others with bracts of gold. Varieties with names like Candy Cane, Autumn Leaves, and Orange Glow, not just your typical Reds. We are also growing a crop of Christmas Cactus. 
 
Come by and watch them grow.
 
HAPPY GARDENING!
 

WE NEED YOUR GREEN THUMB – AND HANDS OF COURSE!

ZODIAC SIGNS AND GARDENING? HERE’S THIS CYCLES PROFILE.

by The Old Farmer’s Almanac

Here’s THIS MONTHS ZODIAC SIGN PROFILE AND HOW IT CAN HELP YOU GARDEN:


LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Libra begins the fall. Because of your concern for beauty, flowers of all kinds abound in your garden. Color is important to you: Ranges from bright to subtle will be artfully placed throughout your decks and patios. You are not particularly fond of getting your hands dirty, so look for the local nursery truck to make frequent visits all summer long. Flowering bushes and trees will be tucked along fences and borders nestled in their beds of mulch. You always want to make a favorable impression; pansies and nasturtiums appear in your salads and roses, and lilies adorn your dining room table.
