This Month at Ward's
Fall is here!
Tropicals and herbs that you may bring back indoors for winter should be acclimated slowly over two weeks. See our tips under the Learn tab for more details.
Time to visit the garden center for late-blooming flowers. Trees, Shrubs and Perennials are usually on sale. September into mid-October is a great time to plant!
Spring flowering bulbs come available now for planting in October.
Keep spreading controls for Asian beetles. The hatched larvae will be most susceptible now to the B.t. called Milky Spore and to microscopic Nematodes. Spread these biological controls through September while soil is still warm.
Mulch is essential for reducing annual weeds and keeping soils moist around perennials, shrubs, and trees. Keep all new plantings watered and mulched! We have hoses, timers, watering wands, watering cans, and more tools to help you keep your landscape growing in the summer heat.
Frost resistant mums, ornamental cabbage, and ornamental kale look great now and are perfect for replacing ragged summer annuals. Plus they last into late October!
So, stop in and save on plant refreshers or garden solutions. We’re always helping gardeners grow.
