Fun Fall Decor
Though the weather doesn’t always indicate it, fall is close at hand. As the calendar changes to September and the nights grow cooler, we can’t help but think about all of those fun things that make autumn in New England so exciting!
One way you can get in the spirit is by switching some of your container plants over to fall perennial favorites like mums. These long-blooming and easy care plants put out weeks (sometimes months) of reliable blooms as night time temperatures start to fall. They are available in a variety of colors, from whites and pale greens to magenta and deep burgundy reds.
Some other options shown below include purple fountain grass (an annual), and ornamental kale. Stop by our retail store and ask our resident horticultural specialists how you can incorporate some new bursts of color this month. For easy direcitons, see here.
