CHRISTMAS TREE SHORTAGE: How the recession had an impact on today’s Christmas trees and how we’re responding
Lost some perennials last winter or early this spring with the mixed up thaw/freeze cycle? No worries, fall is the perfect time to plant, with more moisture, less intense heat, and time for your plants to devote all their energy to healthy roots.
Containers looking a little bare and bleached from the sun? Well, there’s a fresh crop of fall plants, pumpkins, gourds, grasses and more to plant up your pots and decorate your porches and patios.
Our homegrown mums are ready to come home with you, and they’re full, fresh and tightly budded for weeks of color and enjoyment.
Pumpkins and gourds with curious stems, colors and character are arriving soon, defying supermarket sameness and livening up porches, patios, containers and indoor spaces. So are richly colored pansies, textured cabbage and kale and assorted natural embellishments you’ll love in your containers.
We put our hearts into fall because it’s such a special time. And this year it feels like there’s even more meaning in the traditions and tiny treats we look forward to.
