The five P's of Preparation



"Prior Preparation Prevents Poor Performance." - James Baker


Although not originally intended specifically for the gardening community, this quote rings true when creating a successful garden or landscape.


If you haven't already, now is the time to plan and prepare for the upcoming season. Many measures can and should be taken in early spring so that the growing season will start smoothly and produce abundantly.

Water

If you haven't watered your trees, shrubs, lawn, or perennials over the winter, do it NOW! If you are planning a vegetable garden, water the area. Once you get to planting, the vegetables, flowers, trees, or shrubs will greatly appreciate any extra amount of water that is already in the soil.


Clean

Apply Herbicide

Fertilize

Prune

Test Soil

Amend Soil

Service Tools & Equipment

Plant Grass Seed

Plant Trees & Shrubs


What's been going on at the Garden Shop? We continue to clean and organize our merchandise, making room for new arrivals. Last week we received a shipment of pottery from Ceramo and a shipment of macrame hangers. We hope to see many of you at the Garden Shop next Saturday; the weather is forecasted to be sunny, 71 degrees, and calm.


We are expecting a shipment of trees and shrubs from Greenleaf nursery this week, so be on the lookout for the next newsletter which will include a list of new arrivals.


The greenhouses in Goodwell keep filling up and are starting to overflow! We've moved frost-hardy vegetables and flowers outside to make room for the newest shipment of roses and perennials. The container-grown zucchini are putting forth a substantial amount of fresh zucchini, and the cucumber hanging baskets have tiny cucumbers. Be on the lookout for these items which may soon be available in Guymon!


For more information, give us a call at (580) 338-5020 or email us at helmsnursery@gmail.com
