Our Favorite Plant this Month
Aster novi-belgii ... Perennial Asters ... Fall Asters
Native plant of Eastern North America
These plants are terrific favorites for autumn color in any garden. Plants form bushy mounds, bearing loads of small daisy-like lilac blue flowers with a tiny golden button eye. Pinch plants in late July to promote compact growth. Plant in a full sun location (containers or garden beds). They thrive in most neutral soils with adequate moisture and are listed as drought tolerant in some areas.
They bloom in late summer and early fall and are ideal as cut flowers. In the garden they attract butterflies and are deer and rabbit resistant. Divide clumps yearly in late fall or early spring and re-plant the vigorous young plants.
An easy to grow perennial for Northern California gardens. They are now available in #1 size containers for $7.99.
Eat Your Spinach and carrots! Start Fall Veggies from Seed Now
Now’s the time to plant for fall/winter harvest.
- Head Lettuce
Sow seeds directly in the garden covering the seeds with a fine soil. Keep them moist at all times until germination. Varieties such as cabbage, lettuce, and spinach can be started in flats and transplanted into the garden once they are of size. Fall veggies do best in cooler temperatures (daytime temps 80 degrees or cooler and nighttime temps are 60 degrees or less). To prolong harvest plant in succession every two weeks.
If you prefer to wait and plant veggies from starts we will have over 40 varieties available for sale beginning the week of August 31st.
