Fall Gardening

American Sweet Gum (liquidambar styraciflua) heralds the end of summer with its dark red fall colour as seen in this planting in Duncan.


Fall is a great time for planting. After the dry summer, shorter days and cooler temperatures are less stressful on plants. Warm soil encourages establishment of roots on new plants, giving them a head start on growth next spring. We have a great selection of plants with fall and winter colour such as mums, pansies, flowering kale and many others with seasonal colour.

Spring flowering bulbs have arrived and can be planted as soon as space is available. Best selection is during September and we finish our bulb season by mid November. Bulbs can be stored after purchase but must be in the ground before winter arrives.

We have now updated the list of Fruit Trees we will be carrying for late 2018 and early 2019. Check out our Fruit Tree Page.

The Rose List has been updated for 2019. Check it out!

Also check out our Rhododendron Page to see what we have in stock for 2018!
