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 Sept. 25

This week's warm break will revive summer crops such as peppers and tomatoes that may still be trying to produce fruit. Pumpkins and winter squash will add weight rapidly.

Be on the lookout for powdery mildew and other fungal diseases that may be enjoying this combination of warm air and moist soil.

* Late September is ideal for sowing a new lawn or re-seeding bare spots.

* Compost annuals and vegetable crops that have finished producing.

* Cultivate and add compost to the soil to replenish its nutrients for fall and winter vegetables and flowers.

* Plant for fall now. The warm soil will get cool-season veggies and flowers off to a fast start.

* Plant onions, lettuce, peas, radishes, turnips, beets, carrots, bok choy, spinach and potatoes directly into the vegetable beds.

* Transplant lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower.

* Sow seeds of California poppies, clarkia and African daisies.

* Transplant cool-weather annuals such as pansies, violas, fairy primroses, calendulas, stocks and snapdragons.

* Divide and replant bulbs, rhizomes and perennials.

* Dig up and divide daylilies as they complete their bloom cycle.

* Divide and transplant peonies that have become overcrowded. Replant with "eyes" about an inch below the soil surface.
