Nothing says the “start of fall” like chrysanthemums (or mums for short). We start bringing these blooming perennials in our stores at the beginning of September and the entire store begins to acclimate into autumn. Not only do these amazing bloomers give fantastic fall vibes, but they are also extremely easy to decorate with, and upkeep, for years to come. 

Sharpen your number 2 pencils, grab those protractors, and dig out that trapper keeper- because it’s back to school time! And as we prepare for the year ahead, adding plants to your dorm, classroom, or office is enough to put the “fresh” in freshman. 

We are getting into our autumn groove here at the garden center with incoming decor, plants, and garden supplies to prep for fall gardening! 

As we approach the end of the summer season, the heat makes us forget the cool weather to come. Along with the mums, ornamental peppers, pumpkins, and so much more filling our stores for the season, we can’t forget about our cool-season lawns! This week, August 16th - 22nd, 2021 is Lawn-a-thon and we are celebrating by providing information on everything grass-centric. Even more specifically, cool-season fescue grass. 

Terrariums are not only a great way to display plants, but a fun journey to creating your own tiny world! These contained gardens can be made with almost any clear container, but with bottles, you add an additional layer of difficulty and intrigue to your world-building process. Whether the bottle you are using is big or small, closed or open, bottle terrariums are always possible with the right tips and tricks.
