We are now open for the fall season and the weather is actually feeling like autumn right now. After a fairly dry late summer and fall, we have at least gotten a few showers that are sure to help the gardens. I always worry about trees and bushes when we go into the winter on a dry note. We now have an assortment of flowers and plants that will tolerate and thrive in the cooler temperatures and this can be a great time to perk up some of your summer planters. If a couple of plants are looking a little tired, just replace them with something that will get you through the autumn. We have what you need.
As in the spring, we have some shopping guidelines to keep our staff and our customers safe. We will continue to be vigilant about wiping down surfaces and sanitizing any carts. And, we ask that you follow these few rules when you visit SHADY HILL.
-Please maintain 6’ between yourself and staff and other customers
-Please wear a mask or face covering
-No groups of more than three
-We will limit the number of shoppers will be in the greenhouse at one time
-Our restrooms are temporarily closed to the public
-No pets in the greenhouse
We also have our gorgeous mums, in addition to some reduced prices on one gallon perennials. Finally, our Pick Your Own Cut Flowers are really colorful right now, so you can choose and cut a custom bouquet for your home. It doesn’t get any fresher than that! We are now offering Curbside Pick Up as an option again. By placing an order on line, you can pick up on either Tuesday or Thursday, between 10 am and 2 pm. Please place your order by noon on the day prior to the pick up. Here is a link to our on line store https://shady-hill-gardens.myshopify.com/ and there is a link on the front page of this site, also.
Although memories of the spring season are still fresh in our mind, when we look back on the spring of 2020, we have many vivid memories of different circumstances and how often and drastically they changed. At different points throughout this whole adventure, the future did not look very bright, but we tried our hardest to remain optimistic. The support that we received from our many loyal customers made that so much easier and we sincerely thank all of you for continued business.
