Fall planting allows your trees, shrubs and perennials to establish a good root system during more moderate temperatures. That translates to less stress for the plants and less work for you! Work in our compost, bagged or bulk, for clay or sandy soils. Learn the proper way to plant trees and shrubs.

We love supporting our local growers

Pansies are plentiful around the “Hut”. Re-vamp your summered-out containers with mums, pansies and 2-1/2″, 4″ and quart Perennials or bring your containers to us and we’ll do the work! Remember to add blood meal to improve winter hardiness.

Fall Bulbs have arrived. Buy now for the best selection, then start planting them as the weather cools. Add a splash of spring color in your flower beds and containers.
