We’re Thankful!
For Many Things, Especially For You!!

Still Time To Get Ready For Those Visitors!

Wow can you believe that thanksgiving is just around the corner? I for one am glad that there is this upcoming weekend to get ready! The weather is absolutely fall like and it’s time to plant!
Geraniums and assorted winter blooming annuals make a great colorful pot to decorate the patio or front entry-many years we eat outside on the patio-is yours ready? A few blooming plants like dianthus, cyclamen,euryops or trailing african diasies can really set the stage for a great al fresco dining experience!
There is also still  plenty of time to plant trees, shrubs, or vines. In fact this is perhaps the best time to plant most of them!
Winter or cool season vegetables are still in full swing-anything we eat the leaf, stem, or root of is pretty much fair game to plant right now! In fact if you planted one crop already, follow up with another so you can have a second third or forth harvest from winter into early spring!

IF YOU NEED HELP WITH THAT TROUBLE SPOT OR A COMPLETE LANDSCAPE MAKEOVER WE CAN HELP! The Harper boys crack dream garden creators can come out and help you get that garden in shape to take advantage of our great weather and outdoor season. We plant one tree or a whole yard, but picking the right plant for the right place at the right time is definitely our specialty!!

Our Work!

Never too young!!
How’d You Learn To Garden?

Most of us learned what we know about gardening from a parent or grandparent or perhaps a very patient neighbor? I was on a walk in my neighborhood a few nights ago and watched this very patient dad let his young son help him seed his winter lawn a few handfuls at a time!
Remember that not many learn how to or get to love gardening by reading about it, most comes from spending quality time in the garden with someone we care about! Teach a kid to garden today, even if they’re not yours!! The world will be a much prettier, greener, and more enjoyable place if we do!

November Gardening Checklist

  • Plant Cool Season Vegetables (most of the leafy and root crops)
  • Plant winter annuals and flowering perennials-geraniums, alyssum, petunias,pansies,lobelia, snaps,stock…..
  • If you’re winter lawn has been mowed 2x you should fertilize w/ 21-7-14
  • It’s not too late to plant a winter lawn!
  • fertilize roses for the best blooms of the year!
  • caterpillar alert! the butterflies are in abundance be sure to watch for damage from caterpillars on young tender vegetables, orange and yellow bells, bougainvillea,grape vines, and passion flower vines
  • as weather cools nuisance pests will try and move in with you to stay warm!
  • REMEMBER FALL IS THE BEST TIME TO PLANT MOST TREES,SHRUBS,AND VINES!!

Butterfly Time!
Just Remember Their Babies Are Hungry

Do You Have Critters In The Garden of Your Dreams?

Have you noticed the amazing amount of butterflies this fall around your garden/landscape? It seems to us that there is an amazing amount of beauty among the beauty this fall! If you need help planning a garden or landscape that attracts butterflies,hummingbirds, or just the envious neighbor; let us know and we’ll be over with bells on to help you plan or renovate your landscape into the dream garden for all God’s creatures large or small!
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that all that glitters is not gold however. The not so attractive critter pictured above (well disguised as a bird dropping) is the very hungry larvae of the beautiful swallowtail butterfly in the picture in the headline. This guy is usually found on citrus trees and doesn’t do much damage and control is generally not recommended-we can all put up with him eating a little so we can have a beautiful butterfly. If you have any tecomas, bougainvilleas, and especially leafy veggies you should be on the lookout for very small ravenous caterpillars however that might eat more than their share. How you control them is up to you-some choose to pick off, there are very effective “safe” controls like BT, Spinosad, and Neem Oil if the task is just a little to much for you!  As always you should evaluate how much damage is being done and is control necessary!
Butterfly Gardening!!

Got Curb Appeal-Our “First Saturday” Event November 1 Will Be All About First Impressions!

Our team members like the Pond Gnome are also on hand every first Saturday to help you create that dream garden. See You At 10 am on Saturday November the 1st!
