Checkbox-imageBOOST YOUR SOIL

One of the best ways to be successful when planting this fall is to amend your soil (50% soil amendment to 50% original soil). Then seal in moisture with a fresh layer of Altum’s Hardwood Mulch.

Checkbox-imagePLANT TO YOUR HEART’S CONTENT

The time is now, my friend. Perfect conditions, less watering, less stress on your plants and healthier plants come spring. Remember the root ball should be level with the soil line and the wider the hole the better—loosens the soil and gives roots room to grow. Check out the Step-by-Step Planting Guide. We have great results with Fertilome Root Stimulator, too.

Checkbox-imageTHAT INCLUDES BULBS

If you buy bulbs now while the selection is good, then  strategically plant them (with some Dutch Bulb Food) when the ground has cooled come October, you’ll be in for a lovely spring surprise.

Little Lime Hydrangea

Description:

A new dwarf form of the ever popular ‘Limelight’ hydrangea, Little Lime sports the same great flowers and coloration as ‘Limelight’ but in a smaller package. At one third the size of traditional hardy hydrangeas, this new variety fits well into any landscape.

Unique bright green blooms in mid-summer eventually change to rich deep pink in fall.  Excellent accent or mass planting

Fertilizing:

Apply 12-12-12 fertilizer in March/April and in  October/November.  Also a fall application of Elements  will enhance flowering.
