Time to Mulch!

Mulching is a vital component to organic gardening and November through January is the serious mulching season here in the Portland area.  That's because our soils have usually cooled and been wetted thoroughly by this time, which is the ideal state in which to apply mulch. A couple of tips— add 2 inches per season at the most, or the rain has a hard time getting through the layer, and make sure that you leave a 3 inch diameter ring of bare soil around the stem or trunk of each plant. However, any plants like hostas or daylilies that have already died back completely can have mulch spread right over their crowns, they’ll just come up through it in the spring.

Cornell Farm Legacy Project 

Every day, customers share their memories of how our family and farm have touched their lives. They range from grandpa Ted rotovating many of the local West Hills gardens, or Deby’s garden demos at elementary schools inspiring a new generation of plant enthusiasts, to the tranquility and hope a walk through the flowers provides after a difficult visit to the hospital or cemetery. 

We have always cherished hearing these memories, but now we need your help to record them. We will compile the stories into a 2017 online exhibition celebrating the 30th anniversary of the nursery, and the 91 years our family has lived here. 

Please email your stories to They can be any format -- text, photos,  audio recordings, or video -- and can be as lengthy or as brief as you’d like.  

Thank you for being part of the Cornell Farm family story, and making us a part of yours.  We wish you and your family all the best this holiday season!


"It's always a beautiful day at Cornell Farm!"
