What's Brewing at Natureworks this Week...
'Glowing Ember' mums are just opening this week! One giant plant will turn your home into Halloween heaven. Totally hardy to Zone 4, plant it in the ground and you can pick armloads of fresh flowers next year at this time! This is an example of Halloween Horror-culture at it's finest!
Halloween is just around the corner and it's time to jazz up your home for this fun time of year. I dug into my box of tricks and have started hanging skeletons and placing pumpkin candle holders everywhere. I have very few trick-or-treaters but that doesn't stop me from getting into the spirit and making my house look inviting and a wee bit scary. We have the biggest and best mums just starting to bloom that you will see anywhere AND they are perennial. We also have ornamental grasses, colorful foliage plants, pumpkins, gourds, and other unusual fall decor to help you in your decorating. Did I mention drip-less candles?
You must check out the new arrivals this week. We have tons of really interesting succulents in teeny tiny pots, perfect for container gardens and terrariums.
THE AMARYLLIS BULBS ARE HERE including 'Red Pearl' which is really a deep, dark maroon. Start your amaryllis bulbs NOW if you want them to be rooted and budding up for the holiday season. Remember, plant them in tight pots and keep them warm while they are rooting. Water only when dry until you see the buds emerging. We have lots of beautiful containers you can use for all sorts of bulb forcing projects whether it be in pots with soil, in rocks, or in forcing jars.
We are getting really low on our organic hard neck seed garlic; you should be thinking about planting garlic very soon. My raised bed that I fill with over 150 cloves of various kinds is cleaned out, amended, and ready to go. I pop in the cloves and cover it with hay mulch for the winter. You can also get moving on planting bulbs in earnest right now as the gardens are starting to thin out in the foliage department due to the last couple of killing frosts.
I have hauled tons of debris to the compost pile and my stockpile of flower bulbs in the garage is growing every day. Have you come in and selected yours yet? With over 40 kinds of daffodils, Leucojum, snowdrops, and Alliums, you don't have to worry if you have deer, we still have lots and lots of bulbs that you can grow. Speaking of deer, have you noticed that they are really brazen and super-hungry lately? I just had a customer call and tell me they ate her monkshood which is poisonous to them. They ate the buds off of my 'Chuckles' rose that lives in my courtyard- a first for me. They stripped my elderberry bare. I am now seriously using deer repellents on schedule according to our Deer Blast program. You can sign up on our website and we will remind you when it is time to use repellants. This really works.
Our last Saturday morning garden walk of the season is this Saturday morning from 9:30-10:30. A horror-culturist's most pressing questions will be answered such as:
Scare up some energy and ride your broom in this week here for some great bargains and some wicked good new plants and bulbs and garden gifts to inspire you. See you soon...
P.S. Rumor has it that a shipment of orchids is arriving at the end of this week. They will be boo-ti-ful!
Look at what my staff did! They created a miniature garden in a broken clay pot. Too cool!
of the Week
We still have over FORTY varieties of daffodils in stock! From yellow to white to pink to orange, large cups and small cups, miniatures, late bloomers, fragrant flowers, you name it, we probably have it. Totally deer proof, completely perennial, they will spread and add beauty to your early spring garden for years to come.

All perennial mums-including Global Warming mums
Our perennial mums are opening beautifully. The Global Warming mums are gigantic- perfect to fill in the holes in your frozen containers or entry gardens. We also have 'Mei Kyo', 'Venus', 'Samba', 'Sheffield' and more. These will come back and spread every year and will fill vase after vase with armloads of cut flowers.
This is a wonderful native perennial that requires absolutely no care except to cut it down at the end of the year. Soft blue flowers in June, delicate foliage, plants grow 3' tall and spread equally as wide. A workhorse for the landscape.
