|Last winter at the container farm|
Winter Protection continues with:
Maintenance of heaters and houses
Clearing away snow
Venting the houses on sunny days to prevent the houses for getting too hot and the plant from waking up too soon
Watering is still necessary though not as often. Heated houses will dry more so than unheated ones and being covered they don't benefit from any natural precipitation.
Early spring plants are ready for sale now but the ones scheduled for later in spring will be pruned and groomed to take full advantage of the spring flush of growth.
Repairs and upgrades to equipment and facilities are also made to prepare for the next growing and shipping season.
These are just a few of the activities that make providing our customers with quality product a full time, year round job at Loma Vista Nursery.
