Gratitude, Autumn & Final Plant Nursery Days of 2017

It's happening...the end of summer and the beginning of fall. We can hardly believe it's true, but the plants, the sun, the birds, the insects and the calendar all agree. We are so grateful for all of you that purchased our homegrown, super functional and beautiful native plants and planted them in the world to do their work. THANK YOU.

In deep appreciation of you and of this planet we are offering a fabulous sale for the end of the 2017 growing season. This Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday (9/19, 9/21, 9/24) from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. we are offering all plants buy 2 get 1. That means: buy 2 plants at regular price and get one free of equal or lesser value.

Take our end of season VIDEO TOUR.

There are no limits on the plants you can buy two get one free so this is your moment! You can find the plant list on our webpage and if these times don't work for you, but you really, really want some plants message us. We are sold out of some species and the last three open days will be first come, first serve so we apologize in advance if the plants you want sell out. There's always next year!

We are planting more plants almost everyday on our property because we really can never have enough plants in the ground and it's a great time of year to plant. The roots have time to establish a bit and soon the fall rains will arrive making for easy work. I mean, who can resist these blooms?! (Certainly not us!)

The girls are hanging around the nursery showing off their cuteness, of course:

They are also helping me water plants in, which makes it so much more fun!

Autumnal beauty is arriving here daily and the important late season pollinator plants like Riddell's Goldenrod are hosting myriad bees and wasps and delighting us with their rich color.

South-bound Monarchs are feasting on Goldenrods, Asters and Mexican Sunflowers. (VIDEO) It's truly a magical time of year and we wish you the happiest of falls. Next blog post we will take you far from our home into the mountains of VA.
