We have been getting a lot of inquiries about what the mums look like. I know some store are already carrying them. Showing what we have now is better than telling you so there are pictures below.
Hurricane/Tropical Store/Tropical Depression Isaac has provide some of you all some much needed rain. So far we have only received about 1/2-1” of rain here but east of us has gotten a lot more. A good slow soaking rain is good for the mums and will help speed them along. Isaac also brought us some 45 mph winds yesterday evening. Some of the mums were blown over and we are setting them back up again today. I got home to find a tree across my driveway that had to be cut out of the way.
Enough of that. Now for the plants.
Fall Annuals – Dianthus, Snapdragons,Petunias and Dusty Miller
Petunias are close. A few colors have Buds and some Very Light Color now. I think they will have more color by Tuesday too. We will be updating the comments on the availability on Tuesday morning if these have changed.
Violas are looking really good now.
Our pansies are not quite where they need to be yet to be put on the availability. We have some Buds and Color popping up but the plants themselves don’t have all the dirt in the flat covered and need to root out better.
Wind damage from Isaac. You can see the dust blowing off the field in the background.
