2017 September Newsletter

Welcome to September’s Newsletter

We hope that everyone has enjoyed their summer. We sure did, and we don’t want it to end! But, the truth of the matter is that fall is approaching. This means that pond and water-feature owners have to start thinking about fall preparation!

Here are a few things to remember for September:

  • As the water temperature dips below 60 degrees, we want to switch back to a cool season/wheat germ food (we have this for sale at the nursery). Continue feeding fish until the temperature hits 50-55 degrees (typically mid-October).
  • Fertilize your lilies and other aquatic plants one more time in September, to continue to get flowers.
  • It is still a great time to put plants in the ground because you’ll only have a few weeks left to water before the October rains start. We have our end of the season special: buy 3 plants (mix&match), get 1 free.
  • If you were late to get a new pond started, our aquatic plants are also buy 3, get 1 free. It’s not too late to enjoy more life in your pond!
  • Fish are buy three, get one free.
  • All display fountains are 15% off.
  • All fall decor is buy one, get one free.
  • Fall is an excellent time to hire our landscape company, Falling Water Designs, to finish (or start) those landscape projects you were unable to complete during the busy spring and summer months. Falling Water Designs works year round, whether it’s creating garden designs for new clients, cleaning and repairing ponds, or installing ponds, patios, fire-pits, etc. Let us assist your needs!

This month’s How-To helps you prepare for the fall and winter seasons. Be sure to check out What’s New And On Sale at the nursery. For plants that are looking great in the garden still, head over to the Cool Plants section.
