  • Moss needs consistent moisture and shade

    Moss no longer carries the stigma of being an undesirable plant. Some still refer to it as a problem but largely folks are accepting of this somewhat opportunistic plant.  

    Moss likes it shady and moist and we don’t always have the moisture to maintain a nice lush garden of it.  This year is certainly the exception.

  • Asters, the perfect fall perennial

    If you plan accordingly you can have more than mums blooming in your fall garden.  There are a considerable number of other “late-bloomers” to choose from for the perennial garden. 

    Coreopsis, salvia, dahlias and helianthus continue to bloom well into fall just as the caryopteris, Japanese anemone, sedum, ageratum, golden rod and sweet autumn clematis start to show their color.  

    Couple all these perennials with asters and your garden will keep you entertained through October.
