It’s not quite time to plant garlic yet… That isn’t until the end of October, but we strongly suggest that you purchase your seed garlic now. Some varieties will sell out completely soon. Six different types this year!
*Remember, seed garlic must be certified for Idaho, it is illegal to buy online or non-certified seed.*
If this is your first time growing garlic you might need some helpful advice – we have the last “How to Grow Great Garlic” class of the month coming up on Saturday, September 28th at 3pm. Give us a call at (208) 389-4769 to sign up to join us!
It’s time to build and fill your raised beds!
Did you know the best time to start your garden beds is in the fall? It truly is! Building and preparing raised garden beds in the fall allows them to settle over the winter, and be ready for maximum production in the spring. Spring-filled beds are okay, but many will have issues retaining water until the soil properly settles and becomes structured.
The NorthEndOrganicNursery has bulk organic garden soil, topsoil, and compost to get your garden going! Delivery available, starting at just $35, for up to 4 yards of soil or compost, or bring your own truck or trailer and take it home today! BTW, our organic garden soil is awesome . . . nutritionally rich and pH balanced, just right for garden veggies. Delivery available Tuesday – Saturday.
We also have some really neat bed building kits and are happy to help you figure out the best situation for you!
Have you ever had a complete garden failure?

Despite common belief, you CAN grow blueberries in the Treasure Valley.
A few special considerations need to be made, but once those are addressed you can have a bounty of blueberries every summer!
If you haven’t started putting compost tea down on your tomatoes and peppers, now is ideal! Especially with paste tomatoes, blossom and rot can be a major bummer.

Our customers agree, our compost tea is a secret to an amazing and abundant vegetable garden! Only $2 per gallon. Bring your own container, or we can sell you a 2 1/2 gallon container for five dollars.
