What’s Happening at Garden Fever!

Cover Crop ~ Is your vegetable bed soil looking dry, pale, & nutrient-depleted? A good cover crop is just the thing to re-invigorate the soil microbial life. Remember, healthy soil equals healthy plants!

When to plant ~

Fava Beans - Oct. 15th to Nov. 1st

Crimson Clover - Sept. 1st to Oct. 15th

Annual Rye - Sept. 1st to Nov. 30th

Winter Peas - Oct. 1st. to Dec. 31st

Garlic & Shallots ~ Be ready to plant in October.  Varieties are arriving between now and Sept. 15th. Planting garlic can be very satisfying task for a gardener. One little clove produces a big head of multiple cloves. All you have to do is be patient. You plant it in October and harvest around June. In the mean time, it just takes a bit of weeding, a bit of watering, and a bit of feeding. We suggest adding bone meal at planting time and feeding with blood meal in early spring - available in our bulk bins.


We carry the best varieties for the NW. Sustainably or Organically grown in the PNW. Call for varieties on hand ~

The owners of Garden Fever have had these two red-hot Loll lounge chairs on their deck for three years and they are totally in love - with their deck chairs and each other. So comfortable to lounge in and so easy to take care of, 365 days a year. They look so hot on their deck, they almost upstage the beautiful fir trees surrounding them!
