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.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of Dec. 10:

Take advantage of these dry but crisp conditions. It’s time to get out the rake!

* Rake leaves away from storm drains and keep gutters clear.

* Fallen leaves can be used for mulch and compost. Chop up large leaves with a couple of passes with a lawn mower.

* Prune non-flowering trees and shrubs while they’re dormant. Without their foliage, trees are easier to prune.

* Rake and remove dead leaves and stems from dormant perennials.

* Make sure to take frost precautions with new transplants and sensitive plants. Mulch, water and cover tender plants in the late afternoon to retain warmth.

* Succulent plants are at particular risk if temperatures drop below freezing. Don’t water succulents before frost; cover instead. Use cloth sheets, not plastic. Make sure to remove coverings during the day.

* Clean and sharpen garden tools before storing for the winter.

* Brighten the holidays with winter bloomers such as poinsettias, amaryllis, calendulas, Iceland poppies, pansies and primroses.

* Keep poinsettias in a sunny, warm location. Water thoroughly. After the holidays, feed your plants monthly so they'll bloom again next December.

* Just because it rained doesn't mean every plant got watered. Give a drink to plants that the rain didn't reach, such as under eaves or under evergreen trees. Also, well-watered plants hold up better to frost than thirsty plants.

* Plant garlic (December's the last chance -- the ground is getting cold!) and onions for harvest in summer.

* Bare-root season begins. Plant bare-root berries, kiwifruit, grapes, artichokes, horseradish and rhubarb. Beware of soggy soil. It can rot bare-root plants.
