    Here’s the skinny on Buckwheat…

    USUALLY confused as a form of wheat, buckwheat is actually in a completely different botanical family, and is closely related to the rhubarb! With this being the case, buckwheat is GLUTEN-FREE and high in dietary fiber & protein! Make sure to check tho, that it’s not contaminated by other products when mixed with flours.
    WHEN buckwheat was commonly grown, it was a beekeepers primary source of nectar (honeycrop), because of its long blooming time especially in September, when other nectar sources were limited. It is ALSO a natural cross-pollinator.
    BUCKWHEAT germinates quickly, and its leaf canopy shades the soil & eventually smothers out weeds underneath. It grows vegetatively and it flowers until killed by frost. Buckwheat can be sown at any time after the danger of frost is gone, and the most common practice is to seed the crop 10-12 weeks before a killing frost is expected. So, you see, buckwheat has a lengthy growing season with only a 10-12 week growing time.

    WHETHER you are a beekeeper, someone who needs to watch your diet, or are in the mood for a change of crop, try planting some Buckwheat. There is plenty of time to get it in the ground. And besides, buckwheat pancakes are AMAZING!
    Stop by Herbein’s where you can buy it for $1.99 per pound!

    Tips on Planting Trees and Shrubs

    Making Your Thumb Greener One Step at A time!

    Working in the nursery here at Herbein’s, I am often times asked the questions: “How should I plant this tree?” or “How wide should I dig the hole?” Many customers also ask: “I’ve heard I should dig the hole twice as wide/large as the root ball; is this true?” Also, many customers ask about removing the burlap and metal cage on the root ball; this too shall be addressed. To avoid getting into all the scientific mumbo-jumbo that can go into discussing the answer to all these questions (which I may leave for another day) I will give the most simple and concise answers that I can.
