We’re just about there! Can you feel the cool down?
Ok, so you can’t but it’s just around the corner and we’re preparing for it just as you should. Fall flowers are now rolling into the shop. Forget the monsoons – almost on a daily occurrence these days – but soon the weather will turn into the best Tucson has to offer. In two to three weeks and you’re there. Sept. 23 is the official date.
Just recently we received our first shipment of petunias and snapdragons as we gear up for the fall. It’s always a good time in part because Tucson has its winter visitors and there’s plenty to do, particularly in the garden.
Soon, we’ll have everything you need to get started for the fall. Here are the things to look for in the coming weeks: Amazon dianthus, marigolds, petunias, double petunias, trailing petunias, dusty miller, million bells, snapdragons, spinach, swiss chard and organic herbs!!!
And, it’s very likely you’ll be able to enjoy the color of the summer flowers a little while longer. As you know here, summer doesn’t end until, well, spring begins. OK, so that’s an exaggeration, but you should get some longer life from the summer flowers in as much as it’s still hot outside.
Enjoy and come on in and get the fall flowers soon.
And don’t forget, our second annual Plant Pink event is Sept. 24. It helps raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
