Each year, we close for the fall season once we no longer have mums available and we are at that point now. We will open again on Monday, November 14, 2016. We will have our famous home grown poinsettias, as well as an assortment of fresh greens, wreaths and roping. In the meantime, we will be growing the poinsettias and getting everything else prepared for the holidays. As early as it seems, we also start some of the earliest preparations for next spring. Yes, the spring of 2017. Just this last week we planted our geranium stock plants so that they will be able to start producing cuttings for us sometime in mid November.
Fall can be a great time to reflect on what grew well in your garden as well as what did not thrive. Based on those things, you can make some plans or even some changes to the plantings at your house. You can still move some plants safely before winter, but it is time to think about getting the yard ready for those upcoming months. As they say about the seasons, turn, turn, turn. The only way to get to spring is through winter.
In a week or two, we will have our schedule of classes to make an evergreen arrangement for an outdoor planter at your house. You come here to the greenhouse, we supply all the materials and you have something to enjoy throughout the chilly months.
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 or give us a call sometime.
Enjoy the gorgeous weather and we will look forward to seeing sometime after November 14!
