It’s officially mid-winter here in Vail, and we’ve got some winter gardening and landscaping updates to share. Yes: It’s possible to keep your love of gardening and landscaping alive during the winter season with plant design projects, visits to our greenhouse, growing herbs, or planning your dream landscapes. Here are a few updates and tips from Wildflower Farm to keep you inspired through the next few months until the gardening and Vail landscaping season is back in full swing.
GET GROWING: We have seeds, seed-starting supplies, and grow lights. Now is a good time to grow easy things likes lettuce, some herbs, or sprouts. We’ve got herbs started right now in our greenhouse, and you too can grow herbs and sprouts in your kitchen in a warm, sunny window or in an area with a grow light fixed to the underside of a cabinet.
FEED THE BIRDS: Help out active birds in your landscape this winter by providing seed or suet. Stop by for birding supplies, feeders, and bird books.
EXPLORE THE GREENHOUSE: Our greenhouse is open and stocked with tiny, two-inch plants up to small indoor trees. Come by and relax on a cold day, or to pick up something green for your windowsill.
REPOT HOUSEPLANTS: While outdoor gardening may be on a hiatus, now is a great time to repot houseplants large and small. We have an assortment of potting soils, fertilizers, and tools for these tasks. Plus, we have an assortment of pottery on sale at 50% off!
PERENNIAL PURPOSE: We are busy right now planting up new and old favorite perennials so that we have many exciting and beautiful plants to choose from in mid- to late-May.
