We have expanded our hours. Wagner Nursery is now open Monday-Friday 8:00am - 6:00pm, Saturday 8:00am - 1:00pm and Sunday 11:00am - 1:00pm. The sales yard is full, trees and shrubs are flowering and the staff is ready, stop out!
For sixty-eight years and four generations, Wagner Nursery has been providing the tri-states with beautiful landscapes of diverse styles and proportions. Commercial, Institutional and Residential properties all receive the same attention to detail that separates us from our competitors.
We're all anxious to get out in our gardens and dig! Try to resist! Iowa weather can be up and down during April. Hail, then sun, then a warm afternoon followed by a frost at night…it's very hard to predict. Frost is still possible throughout this month and up until Mother's Day. Now is the time to cleanup flower beds, cut away any damaged areas on plants and shrubs and prune to shape those that have become scraggly. Use a rake with narrow, flexible tines to just skim the soil surface to avoid disturbing any self-seeded annuals that may be springing up. Clearing these areas allows you to see where additional plants are needed. And, with more exposure to sunlight, the soil surface will warm up more quickly.
Think about adding mulch to your flower beds and garden. Three to four inches of mulch helps to prevent weeds and diseases. It also keeps the moisture in the garden and maintains the temperature.
Look around your property and see where you could add a new bed or fill an area that needs refreshing. Now’s the time! Check out our new inventory and talk to one of our innovative designers and you’ll be ready when it does warm up!
