From Natureworks Email News on Sept. 6, 2017: Another bulb that has just arrived is the very first shipment of organic hardneck seed garlic. It is NOT time to plant garlic yet, you need to wait until October at the earliest. BUT, every year we run out so it wouldn’t hurt to buy some now and store it in a cool place like your garage or cellar. I grow over 150 heads of organic garlic at home and bring in 30-40 heads to sell at Natureworks. I call it “Nancy’s garlic” as the labels have gotten a bit mixed up. I have a great crop this year. We also have one other variety (German White) with a LOT more to come in time for our How to Grow Garlic workshop in October.
Starting in Spring, you can count on Natureworks for organically grown vegetable seedlings. In April, gorgeous flats of broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, lettuces and other cool crops fill our benches. In the warmer season, we carry an enormous variety of organically grown tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, herbs and more.
We love to stock unusual vegetable plants and herbs you can’t find anywhere else. We carry ginger, edible flowers, tumeric, husk cherries, and okra, just to name a few.
We’re major fruit lovers and always have an assortment of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, figs, elderberries and more for a variety of growing conditions (small and large)!
This year, we’re excited to change things up by providing early notification when veggies arrive without the hassle of a pre-order. We’re here to help you become the best veggie gardener in your neighborhood.
