The Beauty of Fall

Posted by on Monday, September 26th, 2011

There is definitely a chill in the air, giving us hints at what will be coming before we know it! Mum season is oh, approximately ¾ complete, and if your home is still mum-less, we can help. New product is arriving every day in preparation for Spruce Tip season and the holidays, so stop in to discover new inspiration. Need ideas for making your home look like fall/Halloween? We’ve got plenty. Coming soon…the absolutely most artistic birch creations you’ve seen! (Should be arriving week of October 10th) Conical wall baskets created from downed birch trees and dogwood sourced along Lake Superior’s North Shore. Yes, we found an artist with all the right touches—each is a unique creation. Fill with a different look for every season! Hang on your front door or interior wall and voila!

Now is a great time to plant BULBS for spring. If you haven’t considered it, why not try garlic? Couldn’t be easier and we’ll show you how. And while you’re at it, might as well plop a few tulips, daffodils, crocus, etc to get that wow look as soon as the snow melts. Remember wanting that color last year when it started showing up in your neighborhood? This is how to get it—plant during October. Very easy.

Hey, don’t toss those containers from your spring plants! They can be very helpful when decorating for the holidays. We will help you fill them with WINTERGREENS to cheer your outdoors all winter long. Think 16” Moss Hanging Basket or 12” or 10”…or your deck planters. How beautiful they are when greened and decorated! We have many upcoming classes during November where you’ll be able to bring your own pots/hanging baskets/deck planters and fill them up during our workshops–and save some dough!
