The heat and humidity are gone and fall weather is finally here. Did you know that this is the best time to plant perennials for next year? Planting now gives plants the opportunity to establish themselves without the stress of reproduction efforts, heat, drought, bugs and disease. This also gives gardeners the opportunity next year to spend less time planting and more time enjoying their already established gardens.
This weekend will be our final Open Garden sale of 2018. It is also an opportunity for our customers to save on native plants. In appreciation for our customers planting natives in their gardens, we are offering the chance stock up on native plants with tiered pricing discounts. The more you buy, they more you save. Our $3.75 square potted perennials will be:
5 for $18, 10 for $35.00, 15 for $50.00, and 20 for $65.00. Additional plants are $3.25 each.
We still have over 50 species left to chose from, some that were not available last spring. There are plants for every yard, be it coastal, pine barrens, moist, dry, sun, shade and just average gardens. Some plants include Asters, Goldenrods, Sunflowers, Cardinal Flower, Rhexias, Irises, Grasses, Rudbeckias, and Mints.
We also now carry trees and shrubs like Swamp Rose, Red Maple, Steeplebush, and Sweet Fern and specialty plants like Coral Honeysuckle and Nodding Ladies’ Tresses orchids. These plants are $10.00 each.
Our gardens are still in bloom and offer a glimpse of how plants look in their natural habitat.
