Get ready for spring gardening at Wells Brothers. Our porch is stocked full of onion sets, seed potatoes, cold weather crops, tomatoes and herbs ready for your garden. Our cool-weather crops, such as lettuces, cabbage, broccoli, peppers, and most herbs can be planted now. We’ve got 13 different types of tomatoes ready for your garden. We’re right on the verge of tomato planting season, but with the warm winter we’ve had, you should be fine planting now, just keep an eye on the weather and be ready to cover tender plants. In order to get a nice summer harvest, we recommend getting cold weather plants in the ground by mid to late March. The average date of the last killing freeze in North Texas is March 13th. The weeks after that will be the best planting times. Use these next couple of weeks to prepare your garden beds and get the ground ready for planting. Working in soil amendments and natural compost can help give your tired soil the much-needed nutrient boost it needs.
