A List Of Recommended Plants
unpotted-flowers.jpg

Tired of Getting Attacked?
I think all of us have experienced more mosquitoes than ever here in the normally dry and bug free desert. Now that it is fall and you want to be out planting- why not try and add these to your garden/pots/or patio. Have beauty, fragrance, and repel critters at the same time!
  • Lemon Grass
  • Marigolds
  • Basil
  • Lemon Thyme
  • Catnip
  • Sage
  • Pennyroyal
  • Rosemary
  • Citronella
  • Lavender

Most of these are in stock and do well here, some as year round landscape or accent plants!

Need suggestions to other plant ideas- we have a list of butterfly and hummingbird attracting plants and lots of other great ideas on our website-Harper’s Garden Tips

Beginning To Look Like Fall!!

Look What’s New and Arriving!!

First Day Of Fall Around The Corner

September 22 is Monday-That means this is the last official weekend of summer! We’re gearing up for the fall planting season and will have available for this weekend:
Mizuna, Kale, Cauliflower,Broccoli Raab, Broccoli, Dill sorrel, Fennel, Leeks, Onions, Basil, Mint, Pak Choi, Dill, Edible Calendula,Beet Greens, Chard… and Tomatoes.
For the flower garden: Petunias, Marigolds, Mums, and Lobelia make their appearance for the first time!
Again be sure you’ve properly prepared your soil! It is a must for early season success-It is simple especially after some rain the soil should be fairly soft: for every 100 sq. ft. (10×10) incorporate 3-6 bags of Hickman’s compost or Mel’s Mix, 10 lbs of gypsum, 2 lbs of blood meal, and 4 lbs of bone meal. Mix it in well and you’ll be set to plant! Good Growin’

Is Fall Cleaning = Spring Cleaning?
Either Way It’s Time!!
Out With The Old-In With The New!

Is It Spring or Fall?

If you have read one or two of our letters in the past, you know, and if you haven’t well we’ve got a weird take on what we call summer around here! Since it is our bleakest season for the landscape we prefer to think of it as winter! So that must mean we’re headed into spring right? Well either way spring or fall, it is time to start getting ready! Call it a Spring cleaning or a Fall one we’re here to help! If you need your landscape/ yard/ garden evaluated we can have one of our professional landscape/garden designers come out and take a look-and have you ready to enjoy your outdoor living space in no time. Perhaps all you need is a little sprucing up ( a light trim and a shave so to speak) we can do that too-Give us a call today so that when Spring (fall) arrives you’ll be lookin’ good!

Last Week
Let’s Get This Over With!
We’re down to the last week of moving our Mesa Location to our Newly Remodeled Landscape Design Centre at Our Scottsdale Location! Help us not to have to move any more plants! It’s time to start planting- come in and SAVE!

Practical Magic
Ah, Fall!  The temperatures drop a bit (well, it’s below 100 at night, anyway), the kids are all back in school (and parents are doing the happy dance), leaves are beginning to turn colors (okay, maybe not here), and we begin switching out our wardrobes (okay, definitely not HERE).  And just think: only 3-1/2 months until Christmas!

So while you have this quiet before the oncoming storm, take a moment (or an hour) to stop and enjoy where you are at this moment in time.  And don’t forget to hug your kids every day — whether they like it or not!

Ponderings
Keep up your gardening work this month!  The water temperature is still plenty warm to keep those aquatic plants growing aggressively.  Ten minutes per week is all it should take to keep your living water feature in tip-top shape.  And remember to take some time to just sit and relax: be a humanBEING instead of a humanDOING once in a while!
Recently, we mentioned a special deal for those clients who might want to upgrade from their Classic system to the new and improved Signature system of pond equipment.  We got a great response to that offer, and wanted to remind anyone else out there that the offer of special discount pricing will expire at the end of October 2014.  So, if you’re still on the fence, don’t wait too long to get on our schedule to have that done at a discount.
Happenings
Join us for First Saturday’s at Harper’s Nursery & Landscape Centre, starting October 4th, 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  To kick off the Fall Season, this first event will include a live remote broadcast of the Rosie On The House show followed by a BBQ.  Come on by to see some of our work, and ask any questions you may have.  Also, chat with other experts about great landscape options for your yard like paver patios, contemporary pottery, shade structures, a putting green, a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen, and much more!

Let’s Help Out A Local Nursery In Need!!

Perhaps the best way to help the Cox family is to purchase some local grown plants and we’ll replace them with more local grown plants from Jessica and Ryan’s Nursey!

A Local Nursery Needs Our Help

Cox Cactus Farm
Buy Local Plants From Local Nurseries

As many of you may know by now one of our local nurseries, a wholesale grower in north Phoenix was devastated by the flash flooding this past week. Folks  in and out of our industry are helping in many ways from combing the desert for empty pots to driving tractors and re grading the nursery yard. The best way for us to help is to buy their product. The Cox s (Ryan and Jessica)  sell their plants to local nurseries like us and landscape contractors. How can you help? If you are contemplating a landscape project or just need a new plant for a pot or planter, be sure to purchase from someone who is buying from local growers especially the Cox Cactus Farm!
