In case you didn’t know it yet, autumn is here! The wind, rain and colder temperatures may make you want to stay inside with your hands wrapped around a cup of coffee. Sounds good to me.

But wait!

Now–right now–is a great time to plant. Think about it–get your plants in the ground now and you won’t have to worry about watering them or fertilizing them. Better yet, next spring when your neighbors are busy planting and fighting to keep up with watering, your plants will be established, need less water and will be growing strong and healthy. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

So, grab your rain coat, stop by Vander Giessen’s (where we’re still having our fall clearance sale!) to pick up the plants you need, and get out there and plant those shrubs, trees and perennials you know you need. Then, when it’s all done, grab a steaming cup of coffee and warm up–and pat yourself on the back for saving money and getting the work done!
