The Igloo mums are finally ready and now adorn the sales area in front of the store so that now, the age-old question about mums of "will they come back next spring?", can be answered with a resounding yes! The Igloos are actually a Dendrantemum and not a Chrysanthemum that gives them ironclad hardiness. The other benefit of the Igloo mums is that they bloom somewhat in late June and July and then can be cut back to display a full bloom in early September.
Next Friday at 7:30 am is the start of our annual 50% off sale of trees, shrubs, roses and perennials Garden Club Members only for the first 4 days after which the sale is open to everyone. Again, just a reminder that no notice of this sale will be via a postcard so that our mass e-mails will notify most Garden Club Members of the sale as we do now our other specials. Garden Club Members that do not have e-mail and are interested in periodic e-mail blasts should forward their address as soon as possible. Hopefully those members without e-mail will be notified by friensd and relatives. Non Garden Club Members, as always, may take advantage of the sale as long as they sign up the same day.
Look for the list of items on sale on Thurs, Sept 3rd and remember, inventory usually is depleted quickly so get here early!
The word at the nursery is mums, mums and more mums with cabbage, kale and perennial aster included as fall is at hand.
