November Featured Plants and Products
Fall is the best time to plant perennials, shrubs, trees, and more. If you need to move some stuff around in your landscape, you’re in luck this month. It’s the best month to dig up and transplant your shrubs and trees. Grab some root stimulator to water in your transplants after you move them and you’ll be on your way to healthy plants in their new homes.
Cool Weather Annuals
We’ve got color up the wazoo at the nurseries right now. Fragrant stock, snapdragons, alyssum, pansies (pansies are only 99 cents each 4″ sq. pot.), violas and more are here in abundance. Cyclamen lining up the tables with their vivid reds, pinks and whites are absolutely breathtaking. Find some beautiful annuals to tuck in between perennials for color all season long.
The air outside feels amazing right now, but the bone-chilling cold will be on the way soon. You can plan to keep warm and still enjoy gardening when you stock up some of our beautiful houseplants. We have some unique varieties that are sure to charm their way into your hearts and homes.
We are blessed to have two wonderful growing seasons here in San Antonio. Fall brings us delicious cruciferous veggies like broccoli and cauliflower, and the leafy greens of salad mixes, kale, spinach and more. The only thing our tables are wanting for is more space! We’ve got a great selection of yummy options to add to your gardens. Come take a peek, and look forward to eating fresh all season.

You’re new veggie transplants will also need to side-dressed with fertilizer to feed their hungry roots. We have many brands and varieties of fertilizers to choose from. Come on in and see us and we’ll help you pick out the best product for your needs.
It’s truly the best time to plant these items now. You’ll be giving them time to develop a strong root system so that they can withstand our brutal temperatures the following summers.We have a huge variety of trees and shrubs to choose from to fit your needs. Of course we are partial to native varieties because we know they can take our mix of weather and water restrictions and still thrive. Texas Sage/Cenizo (pictured) is a favorite native and you’ll notice that a week or two after fall rains, they will become flush with lavender/purple blooms.
Ornamental grasses are strutting their stuff. This is when many shoot out their gorgeous, feathery plumes. Ornamental grasses can offer you structure, texture, and color in your landscape. They really can be a show-stopping feature. Just take a look at the picture featuring Pink Muhly grass.
