Green Acres Nursery & Supply keeps growing!

This week, the Sacramento-based family-owned chain posted on Facebook that it was adding another location, just in time for spring planting season.

“It’s official. We’re opening a new store in Citrus Heights Spring 2021,” Green Acres announced on Facebook. “Look for us on the corner of Greenback and San Juan.

“Demolition on the existing building is underway and we look forward to sharing the progress with you,” the post added. “We’re excited to be part of the Citrus Heights community!”

Located at 6128 San Juan Ave. at the corner of Greenback Lane, the site is across from the Kohl’s shopping center and has ample parking. The existing building will be extensively remodeled.

According to a city spokesperson, the plans include a 24,297-square-foot building with an additional acre of outdoor and greenhouse space. The nursery is expected to be open for business in about six months.

Founded in 2003, Green Acres already has five locations: Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin, Folsom and Elk Grove. It also recently acquired Eisley Nursery in Auburn and owns wholesale nursery Matsuda’s.

The nursery business continues to boom as more people discover the joy of gardening during the pandemic.

This Monday through Saturday, Green Acres hosts its annual Fall Festival with special virtual events every day. Also Monday, the fall pumpkins arrive at all Green Acres nurseries.

Garden Checklist for week of July 7

Take care of garden chores early in the morning, concentrating on watering. We’re still in survival mode until this heat wave breaks.

* Keep your vegetable garden watered, mulched and weeded. Water before 8 a.m. to conserve moisture.

* Prevent sunburn; provide temporary shade for tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, melons, squash and other crops with “sensitive” skin.

* Hold off on feeding plants until temperatures cool back down to “normal” range. That means daytime highs in the low to mid 90s.

* Don’t let tomatoes wilt or dry out completely. Give tomatoes a deep watering two to three times a week. Harvest vegetables promptly to encourage plants to produce more.

* Squash especially tends to grow rapidly in hot weather. Keep an eye on zucchini.

* Some weeds thrive in hot weather. Whack them before they go to seed.

* Pinch back chrysanthemums for bushy plants and more flowers in September.

* Harvest tomatoes, squash, peppers and eggplant. Prompt picking will help keep plants producing.

* Remove spent flowers from roses, daylilies and other bloomers as they finish flowering.

* Pinch off blooms from basil so the plant will grow more leaves.

* Cut back lavender after flowering to promote a second bloom.

* One good thing about hot days: Most lawns stop growing when temperatures top 95 degrees. Keep mower blades set on high.

* Once the weather cools down a little, it’s not too late to add a splash of color. Plant petunias, snapdragons, zinnias and marigolds.

* After the heat wave, plant corn, pumpkins, radishes, winter squash and sunflowers. Make sure the seeds stay hydrated.
