Beginning of Fall
Although we are sad to see the summer sunshine and the days at the beach come to an end, it is time to look forward to the cooler mornings and lower humidity that come along with the change of season.
When the air temperature starts to get a little cooler, and the soil remains at a warmer temperature, you know it is the perfect time of year to plant any trees or shrubs in your yard. These conditions help the plants to establish their root systems by encouraging root growth without new foliage growth. This results in a stronger and more developed root system for the plant to start out with next year.
Not only is it time to plant evergreens and grasses, but it is also the perfect season to plant any shrubs in your yard as well such as hydrangea or roses.
Don't forget that we also have all the seasonal plants you may need to help bring your window boxes or planters into the next season. And, if you don't have your own containers, we have plenty to choose from in all different colors, shapes, and sizes. We are always more than happy to help you pick the best selection to fit with the individual decor and sunshine that your home has to offer.
And of course, now is also the perfect time to think ahead for those spring days when you're going to want to see the daffodils popping up from the ground. Many people forget that if you want the spring bulbs, you must plant them in the fall! Stop in soon to view our selection and get your bulbs in the ground before the first frost comes around!
And, of course, it is also a good time of year to fertilize not only your plants, but also your lawn. You wouldn't want to risk all of your hard work this summer going to waste because you forgot to fertilize!
