Our COVID-19 Response

Posted on by

At Warner’s Nursery, we are committed to keeping you healthy and safe during the pandemic and we wanted to let you know what we are doing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

  1. We are requiring masks for our employees as well as all customers and visitors.
  2. We are engaging in common measures that are second nature to us now: frequent handwashing; social distancing (we’ve got fun markers on the floor to help); avoiding touching our faces; and, most importantly, making sure our team members don’t come in to the nursery if they are not feeling well.
  3. We are constantly sanitizing countertops and common areas. Every few hours we bleach our carts, door handles and our bathrooms, which were recently reopened.
  4. We have hand sanitizer and gloves available for our guests.
  5. We are safely distancing participants during our events.

Gardening is a great way of practicing safe coronavirus prevention habits while getting to enjoy plants and the outdoors.

Whether your are gardening outside, maintaining your household plants or sprucing up your patio, gardening provides an oasis that you can retreat to. Your plants can provide you with beauty and fresh-grown items to eat. If you have kids, it’s a wonderful family activity and education tool. If you own your property, a well-maintained garden will increase its value. And there have been studies showing that gardening gives peace of mind, particularly in times of upheaval.

We want to make it easy and safe for you to fulfill your gardening purchases. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to make you feel more secure about shopping here during this unprecedented time.

Happy Gardening,
The Warner’s Nursery Family

Houseplant of the Week: Rhaphidophora tetrasperma

Posted on by

Often called the mini Monstera because of its resemblance to the Monstera deliciosa, the Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is having its moment in the sun as the “it” plant trending on social media.

And it’s not hard to see why – it grows easily and fast and just look at those cute peek-a-boo leaves!

Give your Rhaphidophora bright indirect light. These plants don’t like a lot of direct sun, but some is fine. Rhaphidophora likes to be moist but not waterlogged, which – as in so many cases of overwatering – will cause root rot. On the other hand, don’t wait so long to water that it dries out.

One special item you might want to get for your Rhaphidophora is a sturdy climbing support as it does like to climb.

Houseplant of the Week: Pilea Depressa (Baby’s tears)

Posted on by

Don’t let the name fool you – Pilea Depressa might be called the “Baby tears” plant, but you will have nothing to cry about with this beauty.

Alex, our houseplant guru here at Warner’s, is a big fan. She says, “This plant will spice up your room with its bright green color.”

Pilea Depressa has small thick leaves. It’s a nice and easy-to-keep plant that looks very pretty in a hanging pot, because the stalks with leaves will hang down. But it also does well in a terrarium, where it can be a decorative climbing plant.

Pilea Depressa likes medium to high light, but no direct light, which will burn the leaves and turn your bright green plant brown.

Allow your plant to dry out between waterings, and don’t let water stand in the saucer underneath the plant.

In addition to being a hero for giving a pint of blood at Warner’s Nursery, you’ll also be eligible for some great prizes:

  • 15 percent off your entire purchase of regularly-priced items on Wednesday, July 3.
  • Entry into a drawing for a $25 Warner’s gift card.
  • Free one-day admission into the Coconino County Fair.

For more information, you can contact us at 928-744-1983 or schedule your appointment at www.BloodHero.com. Use sponsor code “warners” to find our July 3 blood drive.

Gardening for Pollinators – April 27

Posted on by

Please join us for Gardening for Honeybees, Monarch Butterflies, and other Precious Pollinators, a special 90-minute workshop with Dr. Patrick Pynes, a lecturer in Environmental Humanities at Northern Arizona University.

This event will take place at 1 pm on Saturday, April 27 at Warner’s Nursery and costs $10. Space is limited, so please RSVP by emailing us at [email protected].

Dr. Pynes will describe the life-giving relationships that exist between honeybees and other pollinators, flowering plants, and people – especially gardeners. As high altitude gardeners, we can help pollinators survive and thrive by planting and nurturing annuals (seeds) and perennials, native and not.

Dr. Pynes will discuss a selected ‘short’ list of the best plants for honeybees and other pollinators for Flagstaff gardeners. A question and answer section will be included, along with a hands-on demonstration of how to plant packets of flowering annuals in rhythm with our annual monsoon season. A longer list of local native and non-native plants especially beneficial for the health and well-being of honeybees will also be included.

In addition to his post at NAU, Dr. Pynes is the founder and President of the Northern Arizona Organic Beekeepers Association (NAOBA) and has been working as Head Gardener for La Posada Hotel and Gardens in Winslow for almost two decades.
