The cold weather has officially moved in and another season has seemed to have flown by! On to the next as they always say and I could not be more excited. Out with the pumpkins, and in with the Spruce tips, kissing balls, and Christmas trees.
Not only is it my favorite month, but around Pahl’s there is everything a person could ask for. Mums are in full bloom, with an assortment of colors ranging from yellow to red.
I like to refer to August as the limbo month of the garden center world. Everyone is in the midst of summer and have seen their flowers grow into the beautiful full plants we knew they’d become. At this point, not very many people want to buy more flowers because that, of course, means more […]
When July hits it reminds me of being a kid and thinking that summer is half over. Tough to believe that we burned through June this fast and we are already on to July.
Tough to believe that May went by that fast and a busy flower season has already come and gone. We ended an awesome month on a high note, that’s for sure, and by high note I mean the high temperatures we have been having!
Finally! We can officially say that spring is here. The temps are consistently rising and I even had to bust out the shorts the last few days.
April showers bring May flowers! At least that’s what they claim but who knows what is going to happen this year. I always like to look at the 7 day forecast each morning and see what the weather is like, mostly because I want to know if I should wear shorts or not.
Writing the March newsletter always gets me really excited for spring. February is kind of the month that we knock the rust off and slowly start getting into our planting season. Come March we are in full stride and things really start to take off inside our greenhouse.
Over 14 million plants are just sitting and waiting to be planted, it is amazing to think that we accomplish that much in one growing season. Some of the plants start from seed, some from plugs, others from bare root, and some from cuttings.
The Christmas music is now playing around the greenhouse and the strong fragrance tells me that it is that time of the year again. All of our Christmas trees and Christmas décor are now in and it is time to come in and spread the holiday cheer.
