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 March 19:

Spring will start a bit soggy, but there’s still plenty to do between showers:

* Fertilize roses, annual flowers and berries as spring growth begins to appear.

* Watch out for aphids. Wash off plants with strong blast from the hose.

* 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 fight blossom blight.

* Feed citrus trees as they start to blossom.

* 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.
