We've Got a Bunch of Berries

A large assortment of Berries are available!  Choose from Raspberries, Strawberries and Blueberries as well as Blackberries, Currants, Boysenberries, Gooseberries, Loganberries, Jostaberries, Marionberries, Gojiberries and Grapes. 
They are nicely rooted in, showing good growth, and are available to purchase.  All Berries can be found on tables D13, D14, D15 and D16.

Everbearing Raspberry


These varieties have early summer and fall crops of berries that are produced on new canes each year.  The canes should be cut part way or to the ground at the end of the season.
  • Autumn Bliss - Large, mild-tasting, red berries.
  • Encore - Large, sweet, juicy, red berries.  Nearly spineless canes.
  • Fall Gold - Golden yellow, medium-sized, sweet berries.
  • Heritage - Large, sweet, red berries.  Producing high yields, no staking needed.
  • Joan J - High yields of large, sweet, deep red berries.
  • Nova - Medium, red berries with excellent flavour.  Upright canes with light spines.
  • Prelude - Early ripening, medium-sized, red berries with excellent flavour.

Summer Bearing Raspberry


These varieties have one crop of berries produced on last year's canes, while the fruiting canes should be pruned out at the end of the season.
  • Boyne - Medium-sized, sweet red berries.
  • Cascade Delight - Large, conical, sweet red berries.
  • Killarney - Medium-sized, sweet, firm, red berries.
  • Latham - Large, red, sweet berries.
  • Meeker - Large, sweet, red berries.  
  • Tulameen - Large, light red, firm, sweet berries.
  • Black - Large, black coloured berries with excellent flavour.
  • Purple - Very large, purple-coloured berries with excellent flavour.

Blackberries

Blackberries offer excellent hardiness in the garden and produce sweet, dark berries that are large and firm.  Black Satin, Chester, and Triple Crown are all thornless and extremely productive varieties.  Also available this season is Snowbank, a white Blackberry which produces large, sweet and juicy white fruits on second year canes.

Currants

Currants are rich in flavour and full of vitamins.  The Black variety produces larger, black fruits with excellent tangy flavour, while the Red and White varieties produce slightly smaller fruits.  Use currents to add flair to dinner dishes and desserts.

Blueberries


When planting Blueberry plants, it is best to plant two different varieties for better pollination and a bigger harvest.  Most soils are alkaline (have a high pH); since Blueberries like acidic conditions, add lots of plain peat moss or sprinkle granular sulphur over the growing area.  Like all berries, add a balanced fertilizer at planting time.
  • Bluecrop - large, bright blue, sweet fruits.
  • Chandler - the largest-sizes berries, some said to reach cherry size!
  • Duke - large, light blue fruits later to bloom and ripen.
  • Northland - medium-sized berries, tasting much like wild blueberries.
  • Patriot - huge berries produced early in high yields.
And still to come are:
  • Reka - medium, firm, light blue fruits on vigorous upright plants.
  • Wild Blueberry - large crops of small sweet berries good for baking and desserts

Strawberries


The first planting of Strawberry plants is now available!

Choose from June-bearing varieties: Honeoye, Allstar, or Eclair; and Ever-bearing, day-neutral varieties: Albion, Seascape, Ever Sweet and Ozark Beauty.

These are in jumbo 6 packs on table D16.

Hardy Vegetables

Tables D17 to D20 are stocked with Hardy Vegetable Plants that are ready to be planted out into the garden (in most locations) for nice early, bug-free crops!  Nothing beats picking the first crops of lettuce, broccoli, and kale and it could be only a few weeks away!
An abundance of Kale is available for purchase
Assorted Lettuce
Walla Walla Onions
Sets and starter packs of Kelsae and Walla Walla Onions are available, and starter packs of Bunching, Red Globe, Yellow, Sweet Spanish and Candy Onions as well as Leeks.
 
There is also a full selection of Cabbage, Kale, Kohlrabi and Cauliflower, and over ten different lettuces to choose from.

Ukraine Donation

Stop by Friday, Saturday or Sunday and pick up your free blue and yellow pansies!  When we give them all away The Greenery will donate $500 to help the refugees of Ukraine.
