Issue 293 November 3, 2021
Hi Everyone,
Early November is our time to prep the outdoors for winter. Besides getting the yard ready for Christmas tree and greenery sales, we want to make sure that all remaining plants are put to bed. We move the perennials into the back of our ‘hoop house’, and trees and shrubs all get packed together onto the side of the nursery. We’re inviting you to save us some work. 🙂 Come shop a great sale before we do all that! The plants are going into their dormant stage, so they may not look ‘prime’, but you know we care for our plants and the root systems are strong.
You can still plant now–as long as you can dig a hole, (not frozen ground) you can plant. We might recommend a little extra protection depending on the plant though. Maybe some burlap, mulch or wilt-pruf sprayed on broadleaved evergreens. Ask us for advice when purchasing!
A note for the perennial gardeners out there–we still have Coral Bells, Rudbeckia, Iris, Hyssop, Echinacea, Russian Sage, Day Lilies, Grasses, groundcovers, & more. Come take a browse…
Spring bulbs are on sale now too. We have a good deer resistant collection!

We don’t have trees or wreaths yet, but we’ve been decorating the shop for Christmas for weeks and everything is looking beautiful. For those of you who have been coming for years, you will see a bit of a change as we set up our refreshments outside by the heaters and a fire pit. Come listen to Holly Stewart, one of our wonderful and talented employees playing some beloved tunes by the fire.
We won’t have the limitations on the number of people inside like last year, but while shopping indoors we are requiring masks that night.
No need to keep old peony leaves
November in the Garden
I just planted my garlic! A bit late to be sure, but it’s a bulb, so goes in with the tulips and daffodils.
I like to leave a lot in my garden for the birds to pick at over the winter, but some things really are best to clean up now. Anything that got powdery mildew or looks funky should be cut back. In my yard that’s peonies, and now the purple cone flower seed heads that have been eaten by the gold finches. I’m going to prune my ‘late summer blooming’, paniculata hydrangeas to give them a better shape too. For more on November gardening chores, check out this list from the New York Botanical Gardens. I don’t do everything they recommend, but in general it’s good advice.
