Now is a great time to plant trees & shrubs. Roots grow well into November before the ground freezes solid.
It is also a good time to take advantage of fall sale prices on mountain acclimated plants!
Come on in to purchase premium tulip, daffodil and other bulbs...large & firm make for the best flowers. We have a big selection !!!!
You can cut back your perennials now, but hold on...don't cut back too far! A little bit of foliage left behind goes a long way in protecting against frost damage. Give your plants a dose of Milorganite or compost, and for as little weeding as possible next spring, apply a pre-emergent to your beds.
Hard to believe another spring has ‘blown’ by… lots of wind, all the beautiful weather – sunny days and cloudy nights that kept the frost at bay ‘til the middle of June – then we had a few days of covering and worrying!
A Little Summer Thought:
Your Garden is like a movie and you are the casting director. It is your job to know what your movie is about – soil conditions, sun, water, what you are planning to do in the yard, etc. and make the right casting choices to best represent the movie and your theme – Hardscape, flowers, trees, shrubs – color, textures.
