The new BrazelBerries plants are revolutionary varieties of ornamental berry plants for the front and center of your landscape or decorative containers.
Urban Apples are a columnar tree, growing straight up, making them perfect for small spaces such as patios or containers. Bonfire Patio Peach is a unique and compact peach tree that does wonderfully in a container. We have many other fruit trees available including apples, citrus, peaches, pears, plums, nectarines, cherries, persimmons and pomegranates!  All are suited for this area of North Carolina and selections include many dwarf, compact and self-pollinating varieties for small yards! The seasonal availability of fruits and Vegetables is Nature’s way of telling you what to eat and when. It is worth mentioning that until quite recently, seasonal eating was universal – without modern technology or transport, we had no choice but simply to eat what the trees and plants produced. These days, with all the genetic modification, use of storage technology and the globalised food market, there is that “convenience” of being able to buy any food at any time of the year. Eating seasonally encourages you to buy local produce or at least what your specific geographic location produces for food. In addition, eating seasonally brings an amazing variety to your diet, once you cease with buying the same foods all year round, (for example apples and oranges, from January to December) you will begin to enjoy a sense of celebration every time a new food comes into season.
Without a doubt, seasonal food also plays a role in holistic health – generally, fruits and vegetables appear during the season in which they are best for your body. Of course there are many other fruits and vegetables, but I have listed a general compilation herewith. Some items like Avocadoes, Bananas, Potatoes are available year round and most of the time in stores & genuine farmer’s Markets (the ones that actually grow their produce), you can also tell what vegetables and fruits are in season at a given time. Some produce items like Bananas, Avocadoes, Potatoes (Russet, Red and White), are available year round. Also remember that lemons can be found year-round and should be used to revitalize your water as elaborated upon herewith.

Flowering bulbs like daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and crocus are some of the earliest flowers to appear in gardens each year, some starting to bloom as early as January.
The term "bulb" is commonly used to refer to true bulbs and other bulb-like structures such as corms, tubers, tuberous roots and stems, and rhizomes.
Bulbs grow best in full sun or part shade, but flowers will last longer if they do not receive midday sun. Purchase bulbs while supplies are good during September or October, but wait to plant until cooler weather. In general, bulbs are planted three to four times as deep (measured from the base of the bulb) as the width of the bulb. Normal rainfall usually provides enough moisture for spring-flowering bulbs, but in a hot or dry spring, additional water will help to prolong blooming. In the spring, remove the flowers of tulips and daffodils after they fade to prevent seed formation.
Many bulbs eventually become overcrowded and must be divided and replanted for best effect. For more information on insect problems of flowering bulbs, see HGIC 2104, Flowering Bulb Insect Pests.
Daffodils (Narcissus species and hybrids) are the most successful of the popular spring bulbs for naturalizing in the South. Plant daffodils in midautumn in well-drained soil where they will receive at least six hours of sun per day while in leaf.
Tazetta Daffodils: Many people call this group of daffodils "narcissus," although properly that name refers to all daffodils. Poets Narcissus: This is one of the few late-blooming daffodils that do really well in warm climates. Species Daffodils: Several of the wild ancestors of our modern large-flowered daffodils are very well adapted-to growing in the South.
Darwin Hybrid: These tall tulips have the largest blooms of all tulips on strong stems in mid-spring. Lily-Flowered: These tulips have pointed blooms with arched petals on strong stems in mid-season.
Species Tulips: A few species tulips are from warm climates and don't need a cold period to flower.
Hyacinths will need six to eight weeks of refrigeration in order to bloom in coastal areas. The showy, large-flowered Dutch crocus do not naturalize as well as some of the earlier-flowering crocus species and cultivars. Ornamental Onions (Allium species): These beautiful relatives of onions have small flowers in globular clusters that range from just an inch wide to over 8 inches across.
Anemone (Anemone species): The two anemones commonly grown from bulbs (actually small tubers) are Grecian windflowers (Anemone blanda) and poppy anemones (Anemone coronaria). Spanish Bluebell (Endymion hispanica): This is a late spring-flowering bulb for naturalizing in woodsy areas.
Star Flower (Ipheion uniflorum): Starflower produces abundant bluish-white flowers on 6- to 8- inch plants. Summer Snowflake (Leucojum aestivum): This easy bulb actually blooms in mid-to late spring. Grape Hyacinths (Muscari species): The fragrant purple flower clusters resemble tiny clusters of grapes.

Throughout the year, deer and other wildlife locate various food sources to fulfill their daily nutritional requirements.
Mother Nature doesn’t always provide perfectly-balanced meals in every nook and cranny on the planet.
Hunters cannot ignore their deer herd during the warm seasons, because does are fawning and bucks are growing antlers. Typically, crops planted in the spring are either readily available after emergence or will have a delayed benefit. While most of these plants could be planted individually, a mixture will produce the best chance for food availability. Furthermore, soils should be prepared accordingly by using weed-deterrent techniques through the use of herbicides, tilling and no-till drilling techniques. It never hurts when local farmers are growing massive fields of peanuts and soybeans that are full of energy and nutrition. In the spring, herbaceous and woody plants end their dormancy and begin competing for available nutrients, sunlight and space. It should be noted that eating according to the seasons is an important part of a healthy and sustainable diet. As a matter of fact, I remember in Nigeria that very rarely would you see a fruit out of season on display in the markets, because it simply was unavailable.
The catch is this has greatly reduced our awareness of the seasons and the environment, at a time when this awareness is most badly needed. You will have a deeper appreciation for the uniqueness of each season, and for the range of tastes, colors and textures it provides. For example, rich, full-bodied apples and or pears are winter foods, while light, juicy, refreshing mangos and melons, grapes are suited to summer. Being into fitness and an overall improvement of my health, I will say with confidence that I was truly edified with the information in this text.
Many will bloom and multiply for years with minimal care, while others are best planted for one season's show of color in our hot climate. Bulb-like structures store food to ensure the plant's survival during unfavorably cold or droughty weather.
After bloom is finished, they continue to grow and store food for a period of time before dying back to ground level and becoming dormant through the summer and into fall.
Most early flowering bulbs can be planted under deciduous trees since the bulbs will be going dormant by the time the trees provide heavy shade. If drainage is a problem you can improve it by mixing 2 to 3 inches of organic matter such as shredded pine bark or compost into the beds 10 to 12 inches deep. Permanent bulb plantings should be fertilized by one of two methods in the absence of a soil test. Coastal gardeners can ensure spring blooms by refrigerating bulbs in ventilated packages until planting.
Mulches insulate the soil, maintain even soil moisture and prevent mud from spattering the flowers.
Leave the leaves on the plant for at least six weeks after bloom is finished or until they turn brown. In general, jonquil hybrids, tazetta hybrids, poeticus and species daffodils will grow reliably throughout South Carolina. However, jonquils are a particular class of daffodils descended from the species Narcissus jonquilla.
Tazettas bloom prolifically with tight clusters of four to eight or more small flowers in mid-to late winter. This vigorous cultivar has clusters of 15 to 20 creamy white and gold fragrant flowers per 12- to 14- inch stem. They are treated like annual flowers, dug and discarded after they have bloomed in the spring. Hyacinths can be left in the ground to multiply in the upper Piedmont, but flower size will decline as the bulbs multiply. Corn and sorghum lack initial nutrition, but they will provide a beneficial food source as they mature and produce palatable seeds during the fall. Buckwheat, red clover, alyce clover, lablab and cowpeas are good in warm-season food plots and are very high in protein and very attractive to deer. However, soils can be brought up to speed with Pennington Fast-Acting Lime at least 10 days before planting at a rate of 250 pounds per acre. Nevertheless, some deer and other wildlife species are not fortunate to live in these areas rich with agricultural production.
The race is on, and land managers must have their food plots prepared to unleash their full potential for providing healthy nutrition for wildlife. Furthermore, eating according to a given season has a host of benefits for your health, your wallet, the environment, and local business. So you’d never see a mango in the winter (dry season) months or an orange in what corresponds with spring here (the wet season months of Nigeria). Shipping Apples from Washington or Melons from California) for the simple fact that from a geographical stand-point, the whole of the United States for Example has four main seasons, but not every state has soil that is necessarily conducive for growing produce on a large scale. The seasons give us a long-forgotten sense of the wonderful natural cycles that Western rationalism ignores.
Furthermore, fresh food in season is unbeatable in terms of taste, nutritional value and variety.
Bulbs can be planted in flower beds, in lawns, around trees, or grown in pots or window boxes. Spring-flowering bulbs start to grow roots again in the fall and winter to prepare for the following spring bloom.
The first method is to mix a slow-release complete fertilizer according to label recommendations into the rooting area at planting in the fall. Avoid storing fruit near the bulbs, since fruit-produced ethylene gas can prevent blooming. Divided bulbs can be replanted immediately or stored in a dry, cool area for replanting in the fall.
The only sure way to protect bulbs from animals is to enclose the bulbs in wire mesh when planting.
This group of daffodils typically has small, yellow flowers held in clusters of two to six sweetly fragrant blooms per stem and slender rush-like leaves. They have broad, pure white petals with a tiny cup with a green center and a rim of bright orange or red.
Large daffodils should be divided and crowded bulbs thinned every three or four years to maintain vigorous blooming. To ensure spring-flowering in Central and Coastal South Carolina, refrigerate bulbs from the time of purchase until planting in November to late December.


If you want to have large flowers every year, dig the bulbs after the leaves wither and store to replant, or purchase new bulbs each fall.
This could be late October or November in the upper Piedmont to late December or early January in Coastal South Carolina.
Plant crocuses in full sun or light shade in November, 3 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart.
If landowners want to invest in their herd, they should never leave out a spring planting session; it may be the most important crop of the year.
This version of lime begins acting immediately and also provides a water-soluble source of calcium to be used by the plants later.
The second method is to mix bone meal in the rooting area at planting time with an application of quick-release fertilizer at the rate of 1 to 2 pounds of 10-10-10 per 100 square feet in the fall. Plant daffodils in October or November, but wait to plant other spring-flowering bulbs until the soil temperature at planting depth stays below 60 °F. When bulbs do not receive enough chilling, they bloom close to the ground, on very short stems. If you object to the appearance of yellowing leaves, try interplanting bulbs with perennials or summer annuals for camouflage. Many tazettas, especially the paperwhites, are used for indoor forcing since they do not require a chilling period. Separate overcrowded clumps and replant every few years after the foliage begins to wither. Dutch iris (I.x hollandica) grow to 20 inches tall and thrive in soil that becomes dry and warm in summer. Snowflakes are often called snowdrops, but unlike true snowdrops ( Galanthus species), they grow well in hot areas. All recommendations for pesticide use are for South Carolina only and were legal at the time of publication, but the status of registration and use patterns are subject to change by action of state and federal regulatory agencies. Bucks begin growing their antlers as early as April, but the period of rapid growth is between May and late July — right when warm-season food plots should be going strong.
They may need to be replanted every few years, since the foliage emerges in fall and is sensitive to hard freezing.
Land managers should make sure the right plant groups are available to receive the seasonal goodness and later benefit wildlife species.
Did you know there is also a selection of fruits that can be grown in containers on your deck or patio? Some tazettas are hardy only in coastal areas, while others will grow throughout the state. Perennial clovers such as red, white and alsike are the ticket, with their highly palatable greens and robust, raw protein content that approaches nearly 30 percent. If leaves are cut off too soon in spring, the bulb may not store enough food to bloom the following year.
They have a home in every food plot in the south, whether managing for furred or feathered game species. Deer and wild turkey flock to perennial food plots during this critically important time of year. Deer require rich food sources in spring and early summer; does prepare to drop their fawns in spring and need rich forage to fuel milk production for the newborns. Smooth, velvety, antler pedicles begin forming in May, and bucks will soon need supplemental nutrition to grow big racks through the summer. Premium food plots also provide wild turkey poults with tender forage and will serve as a classroom for Bugging 101.Clover plots are often regarded as one of the most-beneficial wildlife crops available, and for good reason. Besides nearly 30-percent protein, clover is high in vitamin C, iron and many other healthful minerals. Perennial clover plots should be maintained, and several techniques are available to preserve the continuation of these nutrient-rich food sources. Vigorous weeds and woody plants also prefer the available nutrients and springtime circumstances. Common grasses invading food plots generally can be isolated as crabgrass, fescue and Johnson grass.
These grasses can be chemically-controlled with Sethoxydim, more commonly-known as Vantage, manufactured by Dow Agrosciences. Broadleaf weeds such as ragweed, nettle and milkweed can be controlled with 2-4D, commercially-known as Ortho's Weed Be Gon Max. However, perennial clovers are also broadleaf species, and a diluted mixture should be used to select for the invasive weed. When using herbicides for grasses or broadleaf weeds, read labels carefully to ensure proper application.
Fortunately for clovers, the majority of the energy reserves are stored with the root system, and weeds in clover patches can be physically controlled. Mowing will kill other broadleaf species, consequently boosting vegetative growth in perennial clovers as well. Fertilize and supplemental lime applicationEnergy and nutrients inoculated into the soils and then into food-plot forage will be transferred into muscle and fat in the animals that feast on these forage materials. Any high-production food plot with recurring activity and foraging from wildlife will eventually deplete elemental soil characteristics over time. Supplemental fertilization in perennial food plots should be a routine occurrence and is especially important before spring surge. Even though red, white and alsike clovers often fixate nitrogen in the soil, woodland soils often lack necessary potassium and phosphorus critical for optimum clover growth. These elemental minerals must be applied to existing and future clover plots to provide the necessary components needed by clover plants. Fertilizer high in potassium and phosphorus - such as 6-24-24 or 0-20-20 - should be applied before the spring growing season. Fertilizers should be applied by a liquid means or top-dressed using a granular application method. As a general rule, 250 to 300 pounds per acre should be applied to affect the growth of the perennial food plot in a positive way. Woodland soils in the south also are naturally acidic, but clover prefers nearly neutral pH soils.
Over time, soils become more acidic as acidic compounds leach from adjacent forests or other acidic sources through overland or subterranean flows. Clover plants are unable to utilize critical fertilizer minerals unless pH levels approach neutral conditions. However, adequate liming before initial planting of around two tons per acre will maintain a nearly neutral pH for several years. A soil test will confirm the pH and what level of liming should be considered, but light periodic liming never hurts and will ensure the adequate pH range preferred by clover varieties.
In order to provide the best of both worlds, a mixture of fertilizer and granulated lime top-dressed throughout the perennial clover plot will ensure continuous forage production for deer and other species of wildlife. Thicken plots through over-seedingSpringtime is here, and it's definitely time for sprucing up premium forage centers for deer and other wildlife.
While invasive weedy competition and other environmental conditions commonly spoil premium food plots, perennial plots often requires supplemental planting assistance from time to time to continue providing wildlife with premium forage. After perennial food plots have been available for a period of several years, wildlife begin to rely on them in spring and summer to fulfill their intense cravings for quality forage. If managed correctly, these food plots can produce forever, but environmental factors will eventually disrupt the homogenous nature of these premium plots. Through uneven herbicide treatments, weed invasion and just thinning of desired coverage, perennial food plots must be over-seeded to continue to provide wildlife with a thick, lush stand of protein-rich forage. Since clover seeds are so small and require little cover, over-seeding clover plots is very effective. Clover should be broadcasted using a rotary spreader or by hand application evenly distributed throughout the thin areas. But, as a general rule, one-third the seeding rate for a new plot should be used or approximately seven to eight pounds per acre.
