Parks Brothers Farm – Update for October 8, 2012

Big weather change this weekend. Looks like fall is really here. Some of you may be in for a frost so be sure to take precautions with any of the tender plants you might have our on display.

Mums have blown out the doors this week. We are down to the last of both our #8 and #12 mums. Despite being down to the end, we are still shipping Buds to Cracking color on most of them. There are a few with Light Color that are left that will go out on Monday. Over all this has been a great year for mums for us so far. I hope that you are having just as great a year.

Pansies are moving well too. We have a lot available but will be sold out of a few colors next week until the next crop gets ready. Be sure to check out the video on the pansies.

Panalos are basically super Violas. They have a larger bloom and the same cold tolerance of violas.

Violas have lots of color too. We are into our last crop of J6 Snapdragons that have Buds now but should have some color out by Monday.
