The Baker Nursery (on 40th st and Osborn) is on our list of awesome local businesses to check out if you haven’t yet. It’s kind of a Phoenix staple that Jim and Collette Baker opened 1968. Next year marks it’s 45th anniversary!
Now’s the time to start getting those garden beds prepped and getting the seeds planted for your Fall garden and you can start with your late-summer-full-sun veggies and herbs. Plant tomatoes, peppers, and basil today, you’ll have them on your dinner table in 45 days, yes!!
Remember it’s crucial to use organic materials for your home gardens because you’ll grow stronger healthier plants without all those unnecessary additives; Baker has a great stock of locally made soil amendments and organic fertilizers, and their friendly staff are very knowledgeable and helpful.
