This Month at Wards

November! And the greenhouses are now transformed into a holiday decorating showcase. We're also hungry for Thanksgiving! Ward's has unique "plant" themed items for your distinctly Berkshire celebrations. Pick up some harvest-themed decor and peek at options for your Christmas decorating, too!

Cyclamen and florist mums bloom now and add a welcome splash of indoor color to November. We will have poinsettia by the end of the month.

While soils are still workable, we're planting for Spring! Spring flowering bulbs can still be planted. And now is a perfect time to get your garlic going. Follow the links below for more information.

How about bulbs for blooms indoors? We have Amaryillis, those bold trumpet shaped flowers in red, pink, white and variegation, too. Or maybe you prefer Paperwhites (narcissus that bloom without a cold treatment)? Fragrant white blooms burst out of these small bulbs. Both Amaryllis and Paperwhites bloom roughtly 6 weeks after planting.

In the garden, it's time to protect your valuable plantings from winter pests like drying, icy winds; chewing rodents; and snow glare. Use burlap to create seasonal fences for glare and hardware cloth for sturdy fencing around young trees.

Most of our trees and shrubs are ready for winter. If you want a living tree indoors for the Christmas holiday, dig your planting hole now. Learn more at "Evergreens Indoors?" below.

Terrariums make great gifts and can be started now, too. See more information below!
