Fall can be one of the most fantastic times to garden. Cooler weather makes for a better work environment and nothing is more exciting than harvesting and planning out next year’s gardens. Fall is the time to plant those trees and perennials for next spring. Perhaps till up a new area for that native perennial garden you’ve always wanted.
Natives are a new and exciting niche in perennials. Nothing beats a native for ease of care. Most are extremely drought tolerant, don’t require winter mulching and are extremely disease and pest resistant. Less than 1% of our native prairies remain, so even a backyard garden is beneficial for the environment, since most of these species readily re-seed.
Green Valley has joined the native perennial movement. We have several varieties that can help you get started on your native plot. 2011 should see this list greatly expanded as we add more quality native varieties to our selection.
Here are a few of the natives that can be purchased at Green Valley Garden Center.
