Heather's Helpful Hint

Fall in Love with Gardening
September 20, 2012

If you have been gardening for any length of time, it is more than likely that you know that "Fall is for Planting." Somehow, however we miss this opportunity almost every year as we get busy with school and all the activities that follow.

Consider a change this year and get back to gardening when the season is kind to both you and your plants. The temperatures are warm enough to enjoy the outdoors in shorts and t-shirts but cool enough to work comfortably. Your new plantings will have plenty of time to begin establishing a good root system before the cold winter weather arrives and a better than average chance of adequate rainfall which is more advantageous than water out of the tap (and less expensive as well).

By the end of this month, an outstanding selection of trees and shrubs will arrive, including screening evergreens, shade trees, specimen conifers, and Japanese maples. In fact, many of these plants are arriving this week from nurseries as far away as the Northwest and as our close as just an hour away in our own state.

Do not miss this beautiful autumn season to add beauty to your landscape that you will enjoy now and look forward to next spring. Our experts are here to help you with selecting of plants and to give you all the information you need for success this year and for many to come!

While you are here at Waterloo Gardens, be sure to visit the perennial department and the greenhouse as well for all the fall color you need inside and out. This week "Mum’s the Word!”
