Fall Gardening Awaits

Fall Gardening Awaits

The weather this weekend makes me think fall is right around the corner.  I thought I better get busy and update you on what will be happening at The Petal Patch. We will be opening September 6th with bulbs, iris, mums, peonies, shrubs, and perennials. Fall is a great time to plant!  The temperatures are cooling down which enables perennials and shrubs to root in quickly.  Come check out our great selection!!

We will be offering hardy Mums from Minnesota once again along with those diva decorative mums for your patio.  Plant your mums in the ground early, water and mulch them good and you should be set for the winter ahead.  Don’t cut them down in the spring until they start to show green around the base.

The Petal Patch is also open by appointment in August so if you are in need of mulch or plants for that special landscape project, don’t hesitate to call us. Starting September 6th we will be open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10-6 and Saturdays 12-5.   Our last day for fall sales will be October 1st.

It is always a good idea to stop fertilizing your perennials and shrubs so they harden off properly in preparation for winter.  If you continue to fertilize, the plants put on new growth and might not make it through the winter.

As always thank you so much for your business and friendship!!
If there is something you need, just give us a call at 402-226-3721.  We are happy to help you out.
