Fall is a great time to plant!

Fall Mums, Pansies, and more are ready to plant in your garden!

Fall is one of the best times to be a gardener. The fall rains allow us to cut back on watering our gardens. The summer annuals are still flowering but you can add colour with Garden Mums, Pansies, and Heather (Shown below). If you are starting to think about next year the fall is a great time to plant trees, shrubs, and perennials. Spring flowering bulbs like Crocus, Tulips, and Daffodils are arriving in our stores and are ready to plant.

Fruit trees like apples, cherries, pears, and plums are best planted in the fall so that the winter rains can help them grow roots and be stronger for next year. You may even get fruit next year! In your berry garden you can plant raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries and it will ensure a larger crop next year.

So don’t give up on your garden yet. There is still plenty of time to enjoy getting outside before winter arrives.

Our stores are open 7 days a week all summer long. For our complete store hours click here.

They have cheerful yellow blooms in spring, they are perfect to grow in pots or on your garden, and they are squirrel and rabbit resistant. A group of Daffodils can bloom repeatedly in your garden for months in the spring.

Plant a sea of colour with Crocus bulbs!

Crocus are one of the most popular spring flowering bulbs to plant in your garden. The most common colours are purple, yellow, and white but they also come in several bi-colour or stripped varieties. These little beauties grow to be about 4 to 6 inches tall and produce an abundance of flowers in early spring. If you leave Crocus bulbs in the ground they can grow and bloom again the next year. This is called naturalizing. You can plant them in masses in your garden, or even plant them in your lawn. Just wait until after they have stored enough energy for next year before you mow them down.

Get the drop on spring with Snowdrops!

Snowdrop bulbs (botanical name Galanthus) are the first bulbs to bloom every spring. Many of them will even push through a layer of snow to flower in your garden. They are one of the best bulbs to plant in your garden, or even your lawn, because they multiply more and more every year. If you start with 20 or 30 bulbs you will almost double the number of bulbs every year. Eventually you can have a carpet of white flowers blooming in your garden every spring.
