Fall is a great season for planting hardy trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and bulbs! Here are some great reasons why:
Temperatures are more moderate, which means less moisture loss through leaves and less plant stress. Continue watering as needed.
Weeds are less competition for new plantings. Annual weeds should be removed now, before they go to seed. Perennial weeds can be killed off more effectively with Roundup in the fall than in the spring.
Although this is the first week of FALL… it’s really time to plant bulbs now for a gorgeous display next Spring!
Payne’s sells ONLY the biggest, highest quality Holland-grown bulbs to make sure you get the largest, longest-lasting, most brilliantly colored blooms.
Fall is the best time of year to plant bulbs of tulips, hyacinth, crocuses and daffodils in order to enjoy their fireworks of colorful blooms come Spring.
Stop by either store and choose from our great selection!
Don’t forget to sprinkle a little bulb food or bone meal in the hole while you are planting the bulbs and also sprinkle a little more on the soil surface to assure healthy growth. Of course, we have both bulb food and bone meal!
Now is the time to start feeding your plants, trees and shrubs Gro-Power Winterizer. This should be used as the last feeding in Fall, especially for areas like ours that actually have winters. Gro-Power Winterizer will aid in helping perennials, shrubs, trees and lawns withstand the cold winters and respond vigorously in spring.
Gro-Power Winterizer 2-10-10 contains low Nitrogen, high Phosphorus and Potash, plus micronutrients. 40% Humus, 8% Humic Acids and micronutrients.
Stop by both locations for this special winterizer in stock now.
As you can see from the pictures below, I am not in the greenhouse this week, but on the road looking for what may be the latest and greatest new plants for the coming Spring. We still have a great selection of mums, pansies and ornamental cabbage for your fall color pots.
This great weather during the Fall season is the perfect time to plant outdoor plants.
The Garden Guru said that the temperatures have moderated a bit, so it’s easier for the plant to go through the transition of the transplanting process, plus this season helps the person digging the hole because the soil is easier to dig into.
You can plant anything outdoors that winters through including trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, ornamental grasses and more. Listen to Lynn’s tip to find out why this time of year is even MORE perfect to plant outdoors!
