Fall Sales Have Arrived
Why do we love planting in fall? There’s still plenty of time for trees, shrubs and perennials to become established before winter sets in. Plus, cooler temperatures and usually higher precipitation are ideal for plants (and the humans doing the work)! Join us in fall planting this year and save up to 50% off nursery-wide.
Planting for Privacy
This week we’re highlighting our favorite recommendations that help provide natural screening against roads, neighbors, or not-so-desired views. Remember, evergreens should be planted by the end of September. We still plant deciduous trees, shrubs, and perennials into October. All are on sale now through October 6, 2019.
Mixed Shrub Borders – 30% off
A border of vigorous shrubs can grow in quite densely and provide excellent privacy. The display border near the Garden Center screens the nursery road and contains purple sandleaf cherry, forsythia, chokeberry, viburnum, and more. Planting a variety means something is always in bloom or fruit too.
Evergreens & Arborvitae – 30% off
If you’re looking for a complete privacy screen, evergreens are your answer. Arborvitae, also called white cedar, are most commonly used and can be left to grow naturally or pruned into a hedge. You can also plant a mix of evergreen trees for a diverse border. Remember, evergreens should be planted by the end of September. They require a bit more time to acclimate before winter.
Tall Perennials – 20-30% off
Perennials can provide really versatile privacy. Kristin and her crew have some favorite soaring types that include Giant Fleece Flower, Aralia ‘Sun King’, Goat’s Beard, and Giant Silver Grass. Cup Plant (Silphium perfoliatum) is one of the tallest and is a highlight of our rain garden. Pollinators love its yellow flowers, and goldfinches flock to enjoy the seeds.
Plant Saffron Now, Harvest this Fall
Saffron is a fall-blooming crocus that when planted now will send up green, pine needle-like foliage and purple flowers in October. The red stigmas are then harvested for teh coveted spice saffron. Order online for local pickup, or visit the nursery to get yours soon. We have staff that grow this hardy plant in zone 4 Middlesex and in heavy Addison County soils. $15 for 10 corms, $35 for 25 corms, or $60 for 50 corms.
