Perennials: Style & Convenience

Perennials flowers are designed to live for three or more years. They are perfect for those gardeners who like consistency and/or have limited time to spend in the garden.

Since perennials have a much shorter blooming cycle compared to annuals, try mixing different kinds to establish a blooming pattern - add Hibiscus, Hydrangeas, Daisies, Gaillardia, Black-Eyed Susan, Clematis, Coneflower, English Lavender, and other perennials. 

At the Reston Farm Market, we have a huge selection of high quality, healthy perennial flowers to fit the needs of your unique garden. Stop by the market and let us help you with your gardening needs!

Growing Roses

Growing roses is the most rewarding experience for the gardener. Here’re some tips from our team at the Reston Farm Market on how to grow healthy and beautiful roses:

  • Roses crave sunlight, so make sure you carefully pick the right location in your garden.

  • Plant roses in rich, well-draining soil.

  • Add some coarse, organic mulch around roses. 2-3-inch layer of mulch is ideal.

  • Water often enough to create consistently moist soil for your roses.

Is Your Garden Spring-Ready?

Winter is finally gone. The birds are singing and the trees are blooming - nature is awakening from its long winter sleep. Are you ready to get your garden back in shape?

We know we are! We are thrilled to be able to share some tips and tricks on getting your spring garden ready for the season.

  1. Prep the garden
    Cleaning is not the most exciting but essential part of the process of getting your spring garden ready for the season. Remove all the debris and get rid of weeds - just make sure that you get the roots so that weeds won't grow back.

  2. Revitalize the soil
    Winter is gone, and it is time to add moisture to the soil. Stop by Reston Farm Market to get organic soil for your specific gardening needs. Our team of gardening experts are here to help you find the right fit.

  3. Add mulch
    We can’t stress enough the benefits of mulch - not only it helps to prevent weeds, retain moisture, and maintain temperature of the soil, it also makes your garden look neat and beautiful. Add one to three inches of mulch to your flower beds and garden and make sure to keep the mulch a few inches from the plant stems to prevent roots from rotting. Did you know that now you can order mulch online and come pick it up at Reston Farm Market or get it delivered to your doorstep? Pick any of our highest quality colored mulch or shredded hardwood.

  4. Pick the blooms and flower pots
    We have a huge selection of spring flowers, blooms, and greens to make sure that you will find what you are looking for. So stop by Reston Farm Market and pick the ones you like - geraniums, dahlias, verbenas, petunias, fuchsias, impatiens, cosmos, portulacas, alyssums, and many more! Did we mention flower pots? Our spring collection of unique ceramic pots is sourced from local artists that will make your garden look truly one-of-a-kind.

Fruits and Roots: The Benefits of Organic Gardening

Organic gardening has many benefits. Most importantly, it is designed to work with the ecological systems and minimally disturb the Earth’s natural balance. 

Healthy, nutritious, and chemical-free produce is one of the most obvious advantages of the organic gardening. However, there are other, more invisible benefits of organic gardening. One of them is healthier soil, which in turn, makes organic gardening more resilient and therefore more suitable for producing healthy vegetables, fruits, and roots. 

At Reston Farm Market, we are committed to our deep-rooted values of bringing fresh, locally sourced organic produce, dairy, and organic gardening products to our local community in Northern Virginia and beyond. This spring season, we carry a great selection of organic and natural gardening products: from organic plant food, organic soil, natural mulch, and organic vegetable seeds to gardening tools, and much more. Some of the organic gardening products you can expect to find at Reston Farm Market are:

  • Organic Plant-tone - the all natural organic fertilizer made from the finest quality organics available. Plant-tone's natural organics break down gradually, providing a long lasting food reservoir activated throughout the growing season and ensuring superior plant growth.
  • Organic Holly-tone - get this organic fertilizer for your acid-loving plants, such as hollies, azaleas, camellias, evergreens, hydrangeas, dogwoods, blueberries, strawberries, and rhododendrons. 
  • Organic Garden-tone, Flower-tone, Herb-tone, Tree-tone, and other organic fertilizers.
  • A wide selection of natural, organic soil and mulch.
  • Organic vegetable seeds, flower seeds, herb seeds, and grass seeds.
  • Awesome gardening tools, beautiful ceramic pottery, and much more.

We are open Monday - Saturday 9 am - 7 pm, and Sunday 9 am - 6 pm. Stop by and get what you need for your organic garden! We look forward to seeing you there.

Let's Talk About Mulch

Every gardener knows the benefits of a mulch. Applied to the surface of the soil it helps to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, suppress weed growth, and simply makes your garden look beautiful.

Mulch can be applied to the soil surface, around trees, paths, flower beds, and vegetable growing areas. It is also used to prevent soil erosion on slopes and in production areas for flower and vegetable crops. It is recommended to have two inches in depth of mulch.

As you are getting your garden ready for spring, it is important to pick the right kind of soil and mulch. We have a great mulch and soil sale at the Reston Farm Market. Stop by and get as much as you need!

The Reston Farm Market is opened every day from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
