Fall Planting: The Time is Upon Us

It seems like just yesterday the snow was on the ground and the leaves were not yet on the trees. Suddenly, we are less than a week away from Labor Day. Where did the summer go?

Fortunately, the good times are not all behind us. We are just entering one of the best times of the year to plant. Seed will have an opportunity to establish itself before the harsh weather begins and potted plants will get settled in before the snow flies.

This prime time for planting will not last forever though. By the middle of October plants will have a much tougher time adapting to their new environments. Over the years we have found higher incidents of plant mortality when they are installed after the middle of October. We do, however, warranty everything as we are willing to take the risk for you.

Getting the plant material in the ground this year will get you a head start on next year. Take this year for example. Plants began to germinate by late March. We were not able to get our plant material from the nurseries until early May which resulted in this years plantings being almost two months behind those that were already in the ground. This would be particularly note worthy if you have a graduation party or wedding planned at your house next spring. Getting things in the ground now will allow them to look there best for your special event.

Lets remember, don’t wait as soon the snow will be piling up and this planting season will be just a memory.
