City property includes almost 7 acres off Washington Boulevard

Green Acres Nursery & Supply is capping off a very busy 2020 with more big plans.

According to the Sacramento Business Journal, the family-owned nursery chain is working with the City of Roseville to purchase almost 7 acres of city-owned land to build a new nursery and garden center.

On the Dec. 2 agenda for the Roseville City Council, the purchase agreement involves a site on Galilee Road at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Industrial Avenue. The site is next to the Roseville DMV and across Washington Boulevard from Buljan Middle School.

According to the agenda item, Green Acres will pay $1.6 million for the land, and will build a 30,000-square-foot building with 23,000 square feet of retail space. In addition, the plans call for an 18,000-square-foot greenhouse, a large outdoor display area and 250 parking spaces.

Green Acres currently has a nursery in Roseville on Galleria Boulevard, but that site is leased. According to SBJ, Green Acres has another five years on that lease. However, that site is being considered for redevelopment as part of a retail and restaurant complex by its owner.

The new site would be custom-built for Green Acres’ needs as a nursery, garden and outdoor living center as well as offer more parking.

Riding a current boom in gardening interest, Green Acres recently announced its expansion to six nurseries with
a new nursery to open in Citrus Heights on San Juan Avenue in spring 2021. Green Acres also purchased Eisley Nursery in Auburn.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of June 4:

Because of the comfortable weather, it’s not too late to set out tomato and pepper seedlings as well as squash and melon plants. They’ll appreciate this not-too-hot weather. Just remember to water.

* From seed, plant corn, pumpkins, radishes, melons, squash and sunflowers.

* Plant basil to go with your tomatoes.

* Transplant summer annuals such as petunias, marigolds and zinnias.

* It’s also a good time to transplant perennial flowers including astilbe, columbine, coneflowers, coreopsis, dahlias, rudbeckia, salvia and verbena.

* Let the grass grow longer. Set the mower blades high to reduce stress on your lawn during summer heat. To cut down on evaporation, water your lawn deeply during the wee hours of the morning, between 2 and 8 a.m.

* Tie up vines and stake tall plants such as gladiolus and lilies. That gives their heavy flowers some support.

* Dig and divide crowded bulbs after the tops have died down.

* Feed summer flowers with a slow-release fertilizer.

* Mulch, mulch, mulch! This “blanket” keeps moisture in the soil longer and helps your plants cope during hot weather.

* Thin grapes on the vine for bigger, better clusters later this summer.

* Cut back fruit-bearing canes on berries.

* Feed camellias, azaleas and other acid-loving plants.

* Trim off dead flowers from rose bushes to keep them blooming through the summer. Roses also benefit from deep watering and feeding now. A top dressing of aged compost will keep them happy. It feeds as well as keeps roots moist.

* Pinch back chrysanthemums for bushier plants with many more flowers in September.
