Woohoo! Starting to See Fall Color in the Landscape!
Plant Pansies & Violas for Seasonal Color! Great in flowerbeds and containers. These cheerful little plants are hardy over the wintertime, blooming into next May 2021, with just a little dormant period during the coldest part of winter. Plant in full sun and enjoy!
|Fall is a Great Time for Planting!|
|Fall planting of most trees, shrubs, and perennials encourages root growth which makes for a vigorous head start in spring.|
Gorgeous shipments of trees & shrubs are selling quickly. Evergreen shrubs (both broadleaf and coniferous) and hedge plants are especially popular as we head into winter. In addition to privacy, evergreens create the backbone of the winter garden and structure for the garden year-round.
Acuba, Mahonia, Florida Anise, Camellia, Conoy Viburnum, Inkberry Holly, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, Azalea, Pieris, and Japanese Holly represent a few of the broadleaf evergreen options. A wide variety of evergreen conifers bring an array of colorful and textural options for your landscape. Beef up your garden for winter enjoyment by planting evergreens this fall.
Schip Laurels make an excellent broadleaf evergreen hedge. They are fast growing and offer instant gratification for privacy hedges - especially the 10-gallon size.

|Pollinators Love Perennial Mums & So Do We!|
|Perennial mums are starting to flower at our exit, our stone wall bed, and at the top of the Pollinator Garden stairs! |
Late bloomers! These wonderful mums shine brightly in the fall garden, pollinators love them, and they hold up incredibly well as a cut flower.
A staff favorite, these workhorse perennial mums are easy to grow and they spread readily by rhizomes to create a nice patch of reliable fall color. They mix well with other autumn perennials like asters, helianthus, and ornamental grasses.
Pinch back between Memorial Day and July 4 to control height if desired. Plant in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil and keep well-watered. Rabbit and deer tolerant. Zone 4-6 to Zone 8-9.

| Adventures in Plant Buying|
|FROM WILMA: In the early years of Reems Creek Nursery, most nursery growers did not deliver. Bill and I, and sometimes other staff, traveled to various parts of the country to pick up loads of plants. Many of these nurseries were “off the beaten path” and we got to see some interesting places with lots of adventures along the way. North Carolina is one of the nation's top producers of plant material and we visited nurseries in most, if not all, of our state’s 100 counties. |
These days most growers make plant deliveries. They may be native perennials and shrubs from local growers, fruit trees from Virginia’s Eastern Shore, specimen evergreens from the West Coast, tropicals from Florida, or other types of plants. Unloading these trucks is labor intensive but exciting to see what plants are arriving.
The Garden Center, Greenhouse, and Garden Shop are well-stocked with plants, supplies, and garden-related gift items. Stop by soon!
|Remember to Water Your Plants!|
|We are expecting a dry spell, so be sure to water your new plants. Lack of water can kill a new plant, or cause it to be more susceptible to damage from insects and diseases. It is especially important that plants go into winter well-hydrated. Remember, it takes 1-2 years for trees and shrubs to become established. Even established plants should be watered during dry weather periods.|
