Heather's Helpful Hint

Ideal Planting Conditions
October 06, 2011

I am looking at  blue sky today after days of clouds and rain, amazed again at how your whole outlook changes when the sun appears. On those days of heavy rain we see so few of you here in our Nursery/Perennial yard and while we understand your reluctance, we want to be sure that you don't miss the opportunities that the fall brings in your garden and landscape.

Fall is the best time of the year for planting new trees and shrubs, establishing new turf grass, and for planting bulbs for spring impact. In addition to pleasant temperatures for getting out in the garden, planting can be successfully accomplished now and into November. Cooler air temperatures and warm soil temperatures make the conditions ideal for new plantings. Plants will establish quickly in their new location without the stress that our summer heat and drought may cause.

Be certain to amend your soil when planting and mulch the planting area to protect the root system and preserve moisture. We are fully stocked with your planting needs and all the product necessary for gardening success. When spring arrives next year you will be so pleased that you took the time and made the effort to add interest to your home and landscape this fall!
