It’s time for another milestone for Green Acres Nursery & Supply.

The Sacramento-based, family-owned company is about to open its new location in Roseville. Located at 7300 Galilee Road, the new store will replace the company’s longtime site on Galleria Boulevard.

On Wednesday, the movers relocated Green Acres' landmark water tower to the new nursery. The exact date of the new store’s grand opening is coming soon; the nursery’s owners say “mid-November,” without giving a specific day.

Green Acres had been on Galleria Boulevard for nearly 20 years. A former transfer station, that store always had a shortage of parking and overall space. The new nursery – Green Acres’ seventh – has a lot more room, all designed specifically for plants and gardening. Among the highlights:

– A 14,000-square-foot greenhouse for annuals and perennials.

– A 5,600-square-foot greenhouse for houseplants.

– Nearly 7,000 square feet for shade plants in a lathhouse.

– Expanded indoor space with 21,000 square feet for irrigation, landscape supplies, décor and more.

– An outdoor living department with patio furniture, grills and accessories.

– Acres of outdoor space for trees and shrubs.

– Plus more parking.

"Our team at Green Acres Nursery & Supply is eternally grateful for the support of the Roseville community,” said spokesperson Tami Kint. “When we set roots here, we had no idea what was to come. This move is bittersweet for us, but we are very excited to offer our Roseville community the best of what we have to offer.”

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.
