Payne’s Greenhouses are Bursting with HomegrownPoinsettias ready for Holiday Decorating.Take a look at some of the Poinsettias we haveand get your list ready so you can hit the ground running when we re-open!!!
Payne’s has 20 home-grown varieties of Poinsettias this year! Call 505-988-9626 or 505-988-8011 to reserve your Poinsettias for the Holidays! Why buy locally grown poinsettias? For the same reasons it’s important to buy locally grown foods, it’s important to buy locally grown plants. Because Payne’s poinsettias have been growing right here since early July, they are acclimated to Santa Fe’s light and climate. They are hardier, larger, fuller and will last longer.
Gift plant wrapping is available from $1.50 per plant depending on size and local delivery is available for a small fee.
Below are a few of our varieties to choose from — if you want the more unique colors such as white or pink, when we re-open … you should stop by or reserve your poinsettia — because those go quickly!
… that we are only a few weeks away from Christmas. In November, I am used to putting on a heavy jacket in the morning, shedding it by mid-afternoon and then, going back to my heavy jacket to head home for the evening. This year, it is t-shirt weather all day.
Although we are on re-set due to COVID-19, the staff is busy tending to the ever growing Poinsettia crop and busy receiving garland, wreaths and cut Christmas trees from our suppliers. Hopefully we can have our customers back in the store on the first of December to see what we have to offer.
Meanwhile, here are some pictures of the poinsettia crop. You will find many varieties of poinsettias here at Payne’s, such as White, Pink, Hot Pink, Gold, many Bi-colors and of course Red. As a local nursery, we grow our Poinsettias in-house making them better adjusted to our crazy weather. Therefore, we can offer many varieties and many different pot sizes in comparison to the national retailers.
Come by and see the many selections we have to offer.
ARE FRESH HERBS A GREAT WAY TO KEEP YOUR THUMB GREEN DURING THE LATE FALL/WINTER MONTHS?
The Garden Guru said gardeners should never stop gardening – especially during the winter months. So why not grow your own herbs. Lynn said that growing herbs indoors is easy! Stop by Payne’s Nurseries and ask to see our herb selection. Payne’s has about 15 to 20 different varieties of herbs — the common ones, being Chives, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme … we’ve all heard that one before!
There’s lots of recipes that call for a garnish of fresh Chives or fresh Parsley and they’re simple to grow in a sunny window! Listen to Lynn’s tip to find out how to make your herb garden a success!

IN STOCK ALERT: we received a new shipment of Baby Blue Austrian Pine, Alberta Spruce and Dwarf Conifers. Come see what we have in stock.
For garden enthusiasts November means end-of-the-year yard cleanups, and the last bulb, tree and shrub plantings of the year. Payne’s has glazed and unglazed pottery to choose from — stock varies at both locations. Here are some ideas on what to do with containers:
Large frost-proof tubs containing hardy perennials, shrubs, or trees may be left out all winter. Make sure not to place outdoor containers under eaves, where icy water melting from the winter roof can saturate them. Place them facing south or so they receive at least approximately 5 to 6 hours of sunshine a day in a protected location.
Outdoor containers that held annuals or vegetables should be emptied of all soil before the hard freezes hit. Throw the soil onto the compost heap for reuse next season. With wooden containers, leave the soil there so that the wood doesn’t dry out during the winter.
Bring into the garage or potting shed any pots that are not frost-proof, such as ordinary non-glazed clay pots. Scrub the pots in hot, soapy water to which bleach has been added (1 tablespoon bleach per gallon of water). This will ensure that no soil disease organisms overwinter in the pots to infect next year’s plants.
Gorgeous FRESH, ORGANIC RED RISTRAS available at both locations!
When we re-open stop by either location for a beautiful selection of fresh Ristras, organically grown and hand-made right here in New Mexico! There are three sizes to choose from and also three sizes of pequin chile ristras.
PAYNE’S handmade Ristras are not sprayed with any products or 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.
We would LOVE to see how our plants look in their new home in your gardens and landscape.
