ORCHID OF THE WEEK
Feb. 1-7
Paphiopedilum - Bulldog Lady Slipper Orchid
(reg. $63)   
Often referred to as “Lady Slipper” or “Slipper Orchid” due to the shape of its lip, it is by far one of the most unique of all orchids. Its exotic, wax-like, richly colored blooms last for weeks, sometimes months, and features attractive, glossy foliage. After leaves are fully formed, the flower stem rises from the center of the new growth to form one of the most unusual flowers in the world. Ideal for home growing.
Follow Moana Nursery on Instagram or Facebook and find out the specially priced featured houseplant on Thursday of each week.

  • Remember, plants in the ground, especially newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials, need the equivalent of one inch of precipitation per month. Plants in containers need more since they dry out faster. Since we’ve had no precipitation, it is necessary to water now and perhaps more often throughout this winter. If natural precipitation does not occur, this will be necessary throughout the winter. Visit this helpful link on high desert winter watering to read our fact sheet titled IF-13 Winter Watering.

  • Participate in the 23rd Annual Great Back Yard Bird Count February 14-17, 2020 – great family activity! Please visit the official website at: http://gbbc.birdcount.org/about/ for more information.

  • Put out suet and mealworms to attract insect-eating birds like northern flickers, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, wrens, bushtits, kinglets and yellow-rump warblers.

  • Continue to supply fresh water in a heated bird bath or add a de-icer to a frost-proof bird bath to ensure a steady supply of water.

  • Prune fruit trees in late February or early March.

  • Do not prune roses now! Wait until April 15th(ish).

  • Apply Bonide All Seasons Horticultural & Dormant Oil to trees and shrubs to prevent insect infestations. Spray three weeks later and before buds swell with Bonide Copper Fungicide or Monterey Liqui-Cop to control leaf diseases such as peach leaf curl and powdery mildew.

  • Check garden beds to be sure plants have not heaved out of the ground due to freeze-thaw-freeze cycles. Gently press the crowns of perennials back into the ground; avoid compacting the soil by not stomping heavily around plants. Apply mulch to root zone and not over the crown of the plant. Moana recommends G&B Organic Soil Building Conditioner.

  • To prevent weeds, apply Bonide Weed Preventer or Greenlight Amaze pre-emergent herbicide to planting beds when you see early signs of spring such as crocus emerging or the forsythia blooming – applying at this time will miss many cool-season weeds.

HOW TO REPOT THE ORCHIDS
FEBRUARY BIRD OF THE MONTH:        
Spotted Towhee      
Pipilo maculatus
If you are a winter hiker or cross-country skier, it is likely that you have encountered the Mountain Chickadee. One of the most ubiquitous winter birds in Northern Nevada, this hearty little bird loves the cold temperatures and elevations up to 9000 feet. The Mountain Chickadee has a range that extends from the far north of British Columbia to southern New Mexico & Arizona. They are most comfortable in the high evergreen canopy, but they are quite inquisitive and it’s not unusual to find them following you as you trudge through the snowy forest.
 
You have to have sharp eyes to see them, though. Although handsome, they are not the most colorful birds around. Their shades of black, white and gray allow them to blend neatly into their surroundings.
 
In order to survive the long western winters in the mountains, these hard-working birds spend much of the late summer and autumn storing caches of tens of thousands of seeds within their nesting area. The incredible ability of the chickadee to remember exactly where they hid these caches, and then recover the food in the depth of winter, has been the subject of a study by Professor Vladimir Pravosudev of the Cognitive & Behavioral Ecology Lab. You can read his findings at chickadeecognition.com.
