Welcome to the exciting world of exotic fruit growing!

Rivers End Nursery and Farm has developed over the last 22 years from a vision of enjoying delicious tropical fruits from around the world and introducing these trees and fruits to interested folks in subtropical/tropical locations.

We also offer bamboo, flowering trees, palms, landscape specimens, natural plant and soil amendments to enhance your landscape.

This is the time to be hustling in the garden and orchard.  Feeding your plants is critical this time of year.  Soil applications of Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphate are only a part of your plants need.  Minor elements like Iron, Manganese, Magnesium and Copper are also critical for growth and production whether it is flowers or fruits and vegetables.  We will be happyp to show you some options you have to get your trees on the right "diet". 

And when you stop by the Nursery take a look at the display by the Nursery Office door.  Each month we have been posting things you need to do with your fruit trees for that month along with what you will need to be doing the next month so you can see what chores might be coming up.

Our next Farm Tour will be on Saturday, March 11.  This event starts with a sampling of our current harvest and other food items made from our fruits.  Then participants will take a stroll through the orchard to see first hand producing trees like Starfruit, Mangos, Sapodillas, Bananas, and tropical cherries along with many other fruits.  And March is the height of citrus bloom so it will be a walk with the fragrance of citrus filling the air.  Advance reservations are required for this also.  For reservations Click Here

The lovely warmth we have been enjoying since January is a reminder of just how hot summer might be this year - and how how long too!  During the month of March we are promoting shade trees other than Oaks.  Mahogany, Guiana Chestnut, Bo trees, Sunshine trees and Guamuche are some of the trees you might see on special during the month.  Some are big trees, others small, evergreens and deciduous—they are made for shade. Each week we will be featuring 1 or 2 of these "other" trees at a significant savings.  So be sure to look for the "Now that's a Tree Special" .  A little shade in the yard makes everything feel more comfortable in July and August.

We are so excited to report we have located a source for shelf stable Nematodes.   If you like the idea of treating your yard for fleas, Japanese beetle grubs, army worms, fungus gnats, fire ants and a whole bunch of other pests without spraying poisons that your children and pets get to run through, bring a cooler and pick some up.  While these good guys can be used a bit at a time, they do need to stay cool.

Whether you are looking for the right avocado for your yard or just want to try your hand at growing something other than citrus, check out our trees.  We are the Valley Nursery with World-Wide Appeal.
