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.
Meanwhile, check out the new Roseville nursery in person or online. Green Acres posted video and photos on its Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/idiggreenacres.

Dig In: Garden Checklist
For week of March 26:
Sacramento can expect another inch of rain from this latest storm. Leave the sprinklers off at least another week. Temps will dip down into the low 30s early in the week, so avoid planting tender seedlings (such as tomatoes). Concentrate on these tasks before or after this week’s rain:
* Fertilize roses, annual flowers and berries as spring growth begins to appear.
* Knock off aphids with a strong blast of water or some bug soap as soon as they appear.
* Pull weeds now! Don’t let them get started. Take a hoe and whack them as soon as they sprout.
* Prepare summer vegetable beds. Spade in compost and other amendments.
* Prune and fertilize spring-flowering shrubs after bloom.
* Feed camellias at the end of their bloom cycle. Pick up browned and fallen flowers to help corral blossom blight.
* Feed citrus trees, which are now in bloom and setting fruit.
To prevent sunburn and borer problems on young trees, paint the exposed portion of the trunk with diluted white latex (water-based) interior paint. Dilute the paint with an equal amount of cold water before application.
* Cut back and fertilize perennial herbs to encourage new growth.
* Seed and renovate the lawn (if you still have one). Feed cool-season grasses such as bent, blue, rye and fescue with a slow-release fertilizer. Check the irrigation system and perform maintenance. Make sure sprinkler heads are turned toward the lawn, not the sidewalk.
* In the vegetable garden, transplant lettuce and kale.
* Seed chard and beets directly into the ground.
* Plant summer bulbs, including gladiolus, tuberous begonias and callas. Also plant dahlia tubers.
* Shop for perennials. Many varieties are available in local nurseries and at plant events. They can be transplanted now while the weather remains relatively cool.
