Greetings from the Tomato Patch
We had a wonderful turnout of tomatoes and tomato-lovers at the 3rd Annual Taste of Tomato last Saturday. Thanks to all of you who participated for making this event so successful and enjoyable. We have compiled the ‘People’s Choice’ voting results and posted them on our website at https://www.harlequinsgardens.com/plants/edibles/vegetables/third-annual-taste-of-tomato-voting-results/
Glory Hallelujah! Our fall bulbs arrived at last, after the shipper sent them to Ohio by mistake. We have added some lovely new selections. Now is the best time to purchase bulbs, but hold off on planting them until October. There is an exception – fall-blooming bulbs like our Autumn Crocus (Crocus speciosus) should be planted as soon as possible so that you will have blooms this fall, in October or November.

Sign up for our last CLASS for 2013:
Saturday 9/21, 1:30 pm: LOW-TECH GREENHOUSE DESIGN & OPERATION
with Mikl Brawner, owner/founder of Harlequin’s Gardens. Milk has been researching, building and using simple greenhouses for over 20 years. This class will focus on 5 designs on site at the nursery. The first design, a “pit” greenhouse, is passive solar/passive geothermal, and has grown beautiful tomatoes using no supplemental heat with outdoor temperatures down to 0 degrees Fahrenheit. $15
You can pre-register by phone (303-939-9403) or in person at the nursery.
All of our Botanical Interests Seeds are now on sale at HALF PRICE, including vegetable, flower and herb seeds. These are fresh seeds that will still have strong germination next year. Many are certified organic, and all are good varieties for Colorado gardens.
Somebody did a really good rain dance! Thank you!
If you are working on your xeriscape, come out and see our Dry Slope display garden for some ideas of what thrives, and what blooms in late summer.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Eve & Mikl Brawner and the great staff at Harlequin’s Gardens
