It seems hard to believe that we have reached July already and are in the second half of the year, but the calendar does not lie. Each year, we wrap up our spring season and close for a few weeks after the Fourth of July. By now, most customers are done with their plantings and are just ready to enjoy them and the rest of the summer. Our mums have been planted and are growing and if that’s not enough, we will begin planting poinsettias in July, as well. During April and May, when we were getting such ample rains, it seemed like it would never stop, but it has. The grass has finally slowed down growing and that is always a sign that we are drying out.
SHADY HILL will open again, for the fall season, on Monday, August 22. At that time of the year, we have our famous fall mums. In addition to those, we grow an assortment of cool weather loving plants to add to your container plantings to get them through another few months. We also grow beds of Pick Your Own Cut Flowers that should be coming into color right around Labor Day. Although we are not open, we are here on a daily basis if you have any questions or need any information. Give us a call or drop us an e-mail and we are more than happy to help you out.
Enjoy the long, gorgeous summer days!
