In January, gardeners’ attention turns to – houseplants! No matter the weather, the flora that share our indoor space are there to brighten our days.
Saturday, Jan. 28, Green Acres Nursery & Supply celebrates our indoor greenery with an “Extraordinary Houseplant Event.” From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., find special offers and hands-on experiences at Green Acres’ Citrus Heights nursery. Admission and parking are free.
“Shop a curated collection of unique plants perfect for the houseplant enthusiast, collector, or novice,” says Green Acres. “Don't miss this opportunity to add something special to your collection!”
All sorts of houseplants, from aroids to zamioculcas, will be featured. That includes a large selection of tropicals and succulents, too.
The event will “showcase favorites and unique varieties to interest plant lovers of all experience levels,” say the organizers. That includes event-day Hot Buys.
Spend $50 or more and receive a free houseplant, while supplies last. Raffles will be held hourly with a chance to win exotic rarities.
Put together your own unique indoor garden, too, with everything you need for a terrarium or planter. “Build your own mini plant terrarium or craft up a small petite pot-up with your choice of houseplants or succulents,” say the organizers.
Got questions? “Get answers to your questions from our team of houseplant gurus,” says Green Acres.
Interested in orchids? Dave Veach, president of the Sacramento Orchid Society, will be on hand to answer any orchid-growing questions.
Coffee and treats will be available for purchase from Rustic Mule, a food truck.
Green Acres is located at 6128 San Juan Ave., Citrus Heights.

Dig In: Garden Checklist
For week of Feb. 18:
It's wet to start the week. When you do get outside, between or after storms, concentrate on damage control:
* Keep storm drains and gutters clear of debris.
* Clean up tree debris knocked down by wind and rain.
* Where did the water flow in your garden? Make notes where revisions are necessary.
* Are any trees leaning? See disturbances in the ground or lawn around their base? Time to call an arborist before the tree topples.
* Dump excess water out of pots.
* Indoors, start peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from seed.
* Lettuce and other greens also can be started indoors from seed.
* Got bare-root plants? Put their roots in a bucket of water until outdoor soil dries out. Or pot them up in 1- or 5-gallon containers. In April, transplant the plant, rootball and all, into the garden.
* Browse garden websites and catalogs. It’s not too late to order for spring and summer.
* Show your indoor plants some love. Dust leaves and mist to refresh.
