Blueberries

by Sylvia Matlock

The latest news from DIG Nursery on what’s in, what’s out, the über-cool to the outrageous!
What to do and how to do it; be inspired to try something different.

“Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle … a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream.”

It is time to start dreaming and planning in anticipation of the seasons to come. A little forethought now can yield wonderous results later in the year.

High on our list is the edible landscape, and finding colorful and healthy choices for your nibbling pleasure.

This month we focus on the most delicious of smart fruit – the humble blueberry (or brain-berry). These little blue gems are high in anti-oxidents, and have a beautiful color in winter.

We have seven different varieties here at DIG; Hardy Blue, Liberty, Spartan, Toro, Nelson and two other exceptional specimens, Northland – the most hardy and adaptable to different soil types, and Sunshine Blue – evergreen with self pollinating hot pink flowers, yielding blueberries from spring to late summer. This one is great in containers!

Love is in the Air
Valentines Day is just around the corner – but that shouldn’t stop you celebrating your love at any time of the year.

We have a special offer on Orchids, plus sculptural and dynamic Protea bouquets and delicate sweetheart bouquets filled with spring bulbs.

We offer a variety of in-depth classes throughout the year. A new schedule for 2011 will be posted soon.

There are many events to tempt and tantalize all variety of gardeners – from the enthusiastic novice to the decidedly curious and the hopelessly geeky.
