It’s official: Green Acres’ Roseville store has moved!
In time for holiday shopping and cool-season gardening, Green Acres Nursery & Supply opened its new Roseville location at 7300 Galilee Road and shut the doors on its longtime Galleria Boulevard nursery.
After welcoming a few customers Thursday, staff opened today (Friday, Nov. 18) for their first full day of business at the new garden store and nursery. They expect a crowd this weekend for what will be a “soft opening.”
Thursday also was the final day of business for the old Roseville store, opened by Green Acres in 2003. A former transfer station, that store always had a shortage of parking and overall space. The first of Green Acres’ seven stores, the Galleria location was outgrown by the Sacramento-based family-owned company.
The Roseville move has been years in the making. Finally, on Nov. 2 the movers relocated Green Acres’ iconic water tower to the new nursery. Plants and other merchandise followed. Now the new store is ready to welcome the public.
“Our team at Green Acres Nursery & Supply is eternally grateful for the support of the Roseville community,” says Green Acres spokesperson Tami Kint. “When we set roots in Roseville, we had no idea what was to come. We’re still adding the finishing touches and we are very excited to offer our Roseville community the best of what we have to offer.”
A “grand opening” is expected in Spring 2023 in time for the company’s 20th anniversary.

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.
