Fall weather has graced the nursery with its presence. Temperatures are cooler, the days are shorter, and the leaves are falling from the trees. Temperatures are consistently at 50-60 degrees during the day and in the 40s at night. We’ve even had some nights in the 30s.
So what does that mean for our plants and ultimately your order? Well most perennials are going into dormancy. Foliage is yellowing and dropping leaves. As this change happens, we are clipping back and cleaning up the dying debris to keep things tidy and prevent the onset of disease.
Does this mean you cannot order from us? Of course not! We will be shipping up until Thanksgiving. Orders after that will not be shipped until Spring 2015. But this does mean you should expect a plant that looks much different than an actively growing spring perennial. When your plants arrive, plant them as you usually would for an actively growing plant.
If you would like to know the current status of a plant you would like to order, such as actively growing, dormant, or going dormant, send us an email at email@example.com and we will check it out for you. And if you just don’t like the idea of receiving a dormant plant and would rather wait till spring to order your live plants, then check out our bulb section.
