Green Acres moving into new Roseville store

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.”

Garden Checklist for week of May 19

Temperatures will be a bit higher than normal in the afternoons this week. Take care of chores early in the day – then enjoy the afternoon. It’s time to smell the roses.

* Plant, plant, plant! It’s prime planting season in the Sacramento area. If you haven’t already, it’s time to set out those tomato transplants along with peppers and eggplants. Pinch off any flowers on new transplants to make them concentrate on establishing roots instead of setting premature fruit.

* Direct-seed melons, cucumbers, summer squash, corn, radishes, pumpkins and annual herbs such as basil.

* Harvest cabbage, lettuce, peas and green onions.

* In the flower garden, direct-seed sunflowers, cosmos, salvia, zinnias, marigolds, celosia and asters.

* Plant dahlia tubers. Other perennials to set out include verbena, coreopsis, coneflower and astilbe.

* Transplant petunias, marigolds and perennial flowers such as astilbe, columbine, coneflowers, coreopsis, dahlias, rudbeckia and verbena.

* Keep an eye out for slugs, snails, earwigs and aphids that want to dine on tender new growth.

* Feed summer bloomers with a balanced fertilizer.

* For continued bloom, cut off spent flowers on roses as well as other flowering plants.

* Don’t forget to water. Seedlings need moisture. Deep watering will help build strong roots and healthy plants.

* Add mulch to the garden to help keep that precious water from evaporating. Mulch also cuts down on weeds. But don’t let it mound around the stems or trunks of trees or shrubs. Leave about a 6-inch to 1-foot circle to avoid crown rot or other problems.
