Bedding plants for late summer and fall have arrived: color, veggies and perennials!
For great fall color, we have hundreds of garden mums in stock ready to bloom.
The bonus? They’re perennials!
Have you tried Cool Wave Pansies?
They are a great trailing style perfect for spreading in the garden or hanging from baskets and pots.
Phenomenal Lavender is a very attractive rebloomer which is very cold hardy and quite fragrant.
How about a fall vegetable garden?
The same plants we grow in the cool spring also do great in the cool fall.
Choose from broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and lettuce, to name a few.
Are you looking to add to your perennial garden? They are cold-hardy, so will survive our winters just fine. Plant them this fall for bigger, bloomier plants next season.

It’s summertime in Trinity County! Time to shift gardening gears from planting to tending and harvesting. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your garden this summer.
- Water – Everything needs it, but be especially attentive to new plantings, pots and hanging baskets. A thick layer of mulch helps keep soil moisture from evaporating.
- Fertilize – Veggies, fruit trees, flowers, roses and lawns will all benefit from feeding this time of year. Remember to make sure your plants are well-watered before you feed them.
- Flowers – Keep your flowers blooming by dead-heading spent blossoms.
