At Wells Medina Nursery, we know that there are few things more satisfying than enjoying garden-fresh produce. From warm, vine-fresh strawberries to cool, crisp apples, we strive to provide a quality selection of exotic and native fruits and vegetables that will be productive in the Pacific Northwest.

The following are examples of plants in our edibles selection. This does not necessarily reflect our current stock. Please call ahead to confirm availability.

Herbs and Veggies

With summer in full swing, it's time to sew crops that can be harvested in fall and winter. The following vegetables and herbs are crops recommended by The Maritime Northwest Garden Guide for mid-summer planting. Avoid planting the same crop over and over, as this can lead to nutrient deficient soil and increase the risk of disease

*There is no guarantee that we have these plants in stock.*

In the first half of July, sew Carrots, Fennel, Parsley, Green/Pearl Onions, Broccoli, Portugese Cabbage, Cauliflower, Kale, European/Diakon Radish. Rutabaga, Turnips, Escarole, Radicchio, Beets, Swiss Chard, Snap Peas and Snow Peas.

In late July, sew Chinese Cabbage, Collards, Kohlrahbi, European/Diakon Radishes, Turnips, Pac Choi, Chicory, Endive, Escarole, Lettuce and Spinach.

Come in early to enjoy the season's best selection of fruit trees!

      Craig,

      Thanks for asking about my passion, home-grown tomatoes! Note that tomatoes require warmth, specifically night temperatures above 50 degrees. Around the Seattle area this temperature occurs in the middle of May. To assist customers, we are growing beautiful tomato plants in our greenhouse right now. They will be available as plants in gallon-sized containers for purchase at our Tomato Tip-off on March 16th. There will be many old favorites like Sungold and some amazing unique varieties including a French heirloom and an award winner by the name of “Piglet Willey.” It is an event you will love! If you have more tomato questions, feel free to call me at Wells Medina!

    Hello,
    Are you all sold out of your tomato plants? I didn’t see any when I was there on Thursday. If not, when will you get more in? And, do you have any currant tomatoes this year?
    Thank you,
    Darcie

      Darcie,

      I always love inquiries about tomatoes – my favorite vegetable to grow! Be assured, our tomato plants are growing nicely in our greenhouse. We bring the tomato plants from the green house when night temperatures are above 50° as tomato plants are stifled by cool nights. Our varied, beautiful tomato plants will have a mid-May arrival at the nursery. We’ll have large quantities of unique tomato plants – even some rare finds! We’ll be posting our 2020 list of tomatoes soon!

      The currant tomato I am excited to try this year is called ‘Petit Moineau’ or ‘Little Sparrow.” It is know for being a prolific producer of delicious sweet tomatoes. It is growing in our greenhouse and will be available for sale on Saturday, May 16th.

    Hello,

    Are Yuzu trees available right now? I’m looking for one that’s large enough to plant outside right away and would hopefully bear fruit this coming season.

    Thank you,
    Sam

    Hi,

    I’m curious if you sell mint plants and if so, is there any available this time of year?

    Thank you!

      Elisabeth,
      We sell many types of culinary mint. A few of my favorites are Kentucky Colonel Mint and Moroccan Mint. One that I am going to try this season is Mint Julep. Come and see which mint calls to you!

    Hi, I bought a cucumber start from you and now it has angular leaf spot. I’m so disappointed!
    I have a couple questions: Is it too late to pull it out and start again? If not, can I put the new one in the same spot? And, do you offer any guarantee?

    Thanks!
    Sharon

      Sharon,
      The extreme rain and humidity has done quite a job on our “CUKES” as you have witnessed. Pull the plants and do not place a plant of the same family in that area as crop rotation is requisite. Feel free to call and talk with me prior to your return to the nursery as we are waiting for cucumber starts.

      Thanks,
      Kim
