Let the Chitting Begin

Do you grow your own garden?

The Garden Smallholder

chitting seed potatoes

At last, it feels like I’m doing something productive again. Laying seed potatoes out in trays or egg boxes to chit (encouraging the seed potatoes to sprout before planting) really is the start of the growing year for me. Some say chitting potatoes isn’t necessary, I get stupidly excited about chitting mine so I’ll carry on doing it regardless.

This year I’m planning to grow Charlotte (a salad variety) and Desiree main crop. They’re firm favourites of mine and always seem to do well on my plot.

By the way, I think potato flowers are utterly gorgeous…..

What are you planning to grow in your potato bed this year? If it ever stops raining!

Working on the weekends as usual!

Working on the weekends as usual!

We truly love what we do! And sometimes that means coming into the office on the weekends to try and keep up with the demand. Today we are working on some up coming designs for installation. This is an example of one we are working on for a repeat client in Sacramento. They has a large tree removed from their front side yard and now would like to utilize that space as a focal point in their overall landscape.

A little maintenance is all it takes

A little maintenance is all it takes A little maintenance is all it takes to insure we all have a safe and issue free winter. Be sure to clear the storm drains and gutters of any debris. Unkept debris will restrict the flow of rain water causing both a hazard to homes, traffic as well as pedestrians.
