Come into the Nursery to see our fall lineup of colours!

Fall is a great time for planting. After the dry summer, we are getting much needed moisture and the cooler conditions are less stressful on plants. Warm soil encourages establishment of roots on new plants, giving them a head start on growth next spring. We have a great selection of plants with fall and winter colour such as mums, pansies, flowering kale and many others.

Della, our Greenhouse Manager has written a helpful article on Wintering Begonias, Cannas, Dahlias and Geraniums. It can be found on the Greenhouse Tab on the left.

Spring flowering bulbs have arrived and can be planted as soon as space is available. Best selection is during September and we finish our bulb season by mid November. Bulbs can be stored after purchase, but must be in the ground before winter arrives.
