Fall in love with fall!

This time of the year brings a more refined, yet no less dynamic dimension to the garden.  Rich jewel tones emerge creating a quieter more introspective feel to the landscape.  We do love our pops of color,  so let us show you how to  extend  fresh color and texture into fall and winter!



In fall, most flowers begin retreating into the wings and foliage and berries take center stage.  Late summer annuals will still be in their vibrant glory, so enhance them with pansies and violas, berried hypericum, majestic millets, rudbeckias, ferns, heathers/heaths and autumnal-colored heucheras.


It’s a great time to plant, given the prospect of cooler wetter weather which will help your plants settle in and get comfy in their new home.

Deciduous trees and shrubs transform into these fiery gems in the landscape!  Japanese Maples and dogwood shrubs get ready to shed their leaves to reveal their colorful and graceful branching structure in winter.

Did you know that many herbs and vegetables are cold-hardy?  Please see our How-to-care-for-herbs and our Starting-your-fall-veggie-garden tip sheets.

Fall is the perfect opportunity to refresh your summer containers with new plants and our premium organic potting soil.  This time of year lends itself to both a cool (frosty mint) and a warm (rich caramel) palette.  We will be happy to help you design your container or plant one for you.   Come visit us for inspiration and advice!
