Back to School, Fall Planting and “Photo of the Week”

Greetings Garden Friends!

Well it’s September again, the kids are headed back to school and most of us our looking at our once bloom-filled summer gardens thinking: Hmmmm might be time for some fall pansies, or some mums, or what about that back corner by the gazebo? We never planted anything there….

Fall is a great time for planting. With relatively warm temps and plenty of precipitation to support new root systems, this time of year is ideal for adding shrubs and trees to your landscape. Give them a head start this fall, lots of winter rains and come next summer they’ll be ready to face the heat.

Fall for Autumn Color

With that in mind, you’ll be glad to hear that all of our plants are 25% off through September 22nd. That includes shrubs, trees, perennials, annuals and even houseplants. Houseplants are a thoughtful housewarming gift for new homeowners or even as a thank-you to kind friends.

We’re excited to start a new season here at the nursery. Our fall class list is out, and we’ve got classes on winter color, hypertufa, even terrariums coming up. Click here for a full list of our upcoming events.

In addition, we’ve got a new website up and running. It’s been quite a change for us, but we hope you’ll enjoy the new features we’ve added such as a staff page, and an option to purchase gift certificates online. (Of course you can do it the old-fashioned way and give us a call. We love to take phone orders!)

We’re looking forward in the coming weeks to all of our gorgeous fall bulbs coming in, including a delightful Amaryllis collection. See our Pinterest board here of all the new Amaryllis we have coming in.

And of course we are continuing our “Photo of the Week” contest on Facebook into September. Here’s just a few of the beautiful photos you posted on our page in August:

It’s been such a joy to see all your amazing garden projects, plants and designs. Remember, any photo that you post on our Facebook page will automatically be entered to win a gift planter, we pick a new winner every Friday! So without further ado, here’s this week’s winner.

This was our first “garden critter” entry and we were so happy to see Rosa Solomon’s chickens. Chickens are a fun addition to the “homestead”, with their interesting personalities and their predilection to eating slugs and other pesky garden pests. Thanks to Rosa and all of our customers for sharing this week.
