If you haven't taken advantage of our fall cleanup before, you may be wondering what this service entails. We pull annuals, cut back and divide perennials (that are not in bloom), trim and shape grasses and shrubs, plant bulbs and incorporate compost (if requested), and get your gardens ready for the winter season. We will also clean out containers upon request. Proper fall care of your beds makes a huge difference in the spring and in the overall health of your gardens. Contact us soon for a quote!
Plant of the Month - Anemone
Posted September 07, 2016
The Japanese Anemones are a beautiful addition to any garden. They can grow 36-48 inches tall and spread 18-24 inches wide. They like the sun but will grow in partial shade as well. They have beautiful white, pink or rose colored blooms in late summer and early fall. They prefer mildly acidic to neutral soil and regular watering. Anemones are a long-lived, fibrous-rooted perennial. They appreciate mulching in climates where winters are severe. Plants are slow to establish, but spread readily if the roots are not disturbed. Plant some anemones and enjoy their beauty!
