These are the cool, crisp days and evenings that we look forward to each and every autumn season. Spending time outside is such a pleasure in this weather. It can be a great time to take a look around your garden and divide and move perennials. Each spring, we get questions about spring bulbs, so if you like those, now is the time to put some of those in, as well. Here at the greenhouse we have mums, as well as an assortment of cool weather loving plants to add to your planters to get them through another few months. If your pots need a little sprucing up, just remove some of the more “tired” looking plants and replace them with something fresh that will last through a frost or two. Yikes, I just used the word frost.
Every summer growing season is an adventure and it seems that no two are alike. Many years when we have heat, it comes with some dry spells. Conversely, when we have a wet summer, it is often cooler. This year we have had heat, as well ample rains. Although that means continuing with the very regular lawn mowings! Soon enough I’m sure that we will begin to hear what that means for the coming winter, but for now, we are just ready to enjoy the autumn.
If you have any gardening questions about what is going on or should be going on in your garden, we are always happy to help you out in any way we can. Drop us a line, stop by the greenhouse or give us a call sometime.
Enjoy the gorgeous weather and we will look forward to seeing you soon!
