Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: The fall reblooming azaleas just keep on blooming at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse, with 4 colors available now. I’m not really sure what the lower nighttime temperatures this week will do to blooms, but I can tell you that these sweet things are winter hardy, and that fall is the very best time to plant these, as well as perennial plants. Fall planting allows roots to develop and grow strong as they soak up the soil moisture while not having to deal with the beating sun of summer. Strong fall root growth means great winter bud set and fabulous spring blooms. So this fall you might add a few of these beautiful reblooming azaleas to your garden, or you might think about a few perennial plants, to get a jump on your beautiful spring garden.
Pre-ordering is now open for our beautiful Christmas wreaths and kissing balls. We will be able to make only a limited number of each (good help is hard to find!), and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Pre-order price will be in effect till Nov 15, so reserve yours now. We will fill orders as received, beginning about Dec 1. We will also have pink Christmas cacti and several colors of African violets in bloom for Christmas, and you may also reserve those now if you prefer. Just drop me an email to let me know if you want one or more of the potted plants, because they’re not currently available on the market.
Looking forward seeing you on “The Porch” at Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday.
