Fall Gardening

Fall has arrived with some significant rain that will make the garden thrive. Plants will establish well when planted in moist warm soil. We have a great selection of trees and shrubs that will root out nicely for a strong start next spring. Many items are on sale and priced to clear so they hve a new home for the winter.

Now is a great time to seed a new lawn or reapir a tired lawn. If you can seed by October 1st, you will have a well-established lawn by winter. We carry seed for all types of lawns.


A true gardener is always looking ahead to create something beautiful in the futue and this is true for planting fall bulbs. Our selection is now at its best and bulbs should be planted by November. Many are deer proof and will naturalize into larger displays of colour each year.

Check out the Fall Seminar schedule now up on the Seminar Page.

We have updated our Fruit Tree List and Rose List for what we will be carrying in 2020. Check it out by clicking on the Fruit Tree and Rose Tabs.
