Fall is For Flowers


Dear Friends,
Can you believe it's Allison's senior year in college? We just enjoyed our fourth and final Parent's Weekend. Tim and I will miss being the parents of a college student. It was truly a wonderful season in our lives.
We have arrived at our favorite time of year! If you like to be outside then fall is for you because it really is the best time to be in the garden. Shrubs, trees, perennials, perennial herbs, bulbs, daylilies and ornamental grasses should all be planted now. The plants will have the fall, winter and early spring seasons to firmly establish their root systems. A plant with good roots will provide a beautiful show next spring and then you get to reap the rewards.
We'll See You in the Fall Garden!
- Tim & Lisa King

What's Growing on in Tim and Lisa's Garden

How do we spruce up our patio pots in October?

¨The first thing we do is to remove tired looking annuals. Replace with fresh plants like cabbage, kale, pansies, wire vine and goldilocks.
¨If they still look good, go ahead and cut back overgrown summer annuals and allow them to fluch back out one more time before the cold weather arrives in winter.
¨Top dress your container gardens with fresh potting soil. Some may have washed out with all the frequnet watering of summer and recent rainfall.
¨Water yellowing plants with a liquid fertilizer high in nitrogen to green them up quickly.
¨Reduce the number of container gardens in your outdoor areas for a stress free look.

Field Trips!

A 095

Forest Lake Greenhouses would like to invite teachers to consider our nursery as a field trip opportunity for the school year. We enjoy giving children exposure to the excitement of learning about plants. We believe that early exposure to plants can instill a greater respect for nature and open the door to what could become a life-long interest. If you are interested please call or email Mandi or Lisa at 843-662-5666.



Enjoy the beginning of a new season by brightening up your summer worn pots with colorful, long lasting marigolds.
