President’s Message

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” Lauren DeStefano

Don’t mourn the end your summer garden, fall is the time to celebrate the colors and plants that thrive in the cooler weather in our gardens.

Some of the benefits of fall gardening:
Cooler temperatures mean we don’t have to water as often. (Lower water bills!)
Less sweat as we work in our yards and gardens with dropping temperatures.
Autumn also offers a respite from many garden pests.
This season also provides a change in diet as we now can enjoy fall vegetables and herbs from our garden.
Summer flowers like to show off, but autumn has its own unique brand of beauty. Beautyberry, pansies and violas, snapdragons, chrysanthemums, and autumn Sedum deserve a spot in our fall gardens.
