This tall Japanese maple offers attractive dark red bark and deep burgundy foliage.  It grows in an upright habit which makes it well suited to a small accent tree for patios and entryways. 

The Beautiful Beech!

A sincere, thank everyone to who helped us celebrate Autumn Tree Fest with us this fall!

Fagus sylvatica, European Beech or Common Beech first arrived with the European colonists in the mid 1700's.  This slow growing tree can reach up to 50' tall and wide and is often selected as an ornamental shade tree.  Flowering around the end of April, the female blooms produce a triangular, edible nut that is encased in spiny bracts. The wavy elliptical leaves take on a golden-bronze fall color giving way to a dark gray, smooth bark that appears to have wrinkles.  This tree is great for large areas and should be considered a great choice offering four-seasons of interest.  There are several cultivars ranging in height, width and even weeping.  You are sure to find one that will work in your own home garden.

We love this time of year when the valley harvest is abundant, the digging season has begun, and the crisp feeling of fall is in the air.  Each year we offer fantastic savings on select plant material and enjoy brats, cider and pumpkin pie.  We are excited to share our growing fields with you on a Tractor Hay Ride, paint a few pumpkins and enjoy the company of the best customers anyone could hope for...

Thank you for allowing us to continue doing what we all value and enjoy!

Fall Containers

Tall deciduous grasses whose plumes stand above the container truly add a great fall feeling.  Ground covers with berries are perfect at this time of year and can take you all the way through the holiday season.  Cotoneaster dammeri (bearberry) and Gaultheria procumbens (wintergreen) are very reliable choices for winter berries.  Sprinklings of pansies and voilas with their bright faces that hold up well in the cold winter months are always a sure way to brighten any fall planting.  Adding colorful squash and gourds or even some colorful red or yellow twig dogwood.  Be sure to ask our expert staff for design help or inspiration.   

 It is such a great way to welcome guests to your home with a beautifully planted seasonal container.  There are so many wonderful evergreen perennials and small shrubs available in the fall that work perfectly for seasonal containers. Heucheras are abundant this time of year and are available in a vast range of colors from deep purple to rich orange.  They are a perfect filler for fall containers.

 Evergreen grasses like Carex testacea (orange sedge) and Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' (black mondo grass) are perfect textures for fall containers.

The best time of year for planting is finally upon us.  The soil is warm, the days are getting shorter and more often than not Mother Nature is providing the water!  Everything from trees to shrubs, fall annuals and veggies perennials and Spring blooming bulbs have the best chance for success in the fall.  If you haven't finished planting your fall vegetables this is your last chance, and don't forget to plant your garlic now too.  Want a garden filled with daffodils, tulips and crocus next Spring?  Well this is the month to make those decisions.  Spring bulbs are arriving mid-month and should be planted before Thanksgiving.  Trees and shrubs develop strong root structures when planted in fall.  Be sure to add some Dr. Earth Starter Fertilizer and amend your native soil with quality compost, like EcoScraps for best results.  Plant colorful pansies, voilas and ornamental cabbage and kale this month for brilliant colors that will hold up in the coldest winters. 

Fall is for Planting!
