Decorating for Fall

Decorating Your Garden for Fall in Kitchener Waterloo RegionWe have some simply stunning 6” fall mums right now in shades ranging from yellows to burgundys. At a price of simply 3 for $10, this is a perfect way to either dress up your house, or office, or to give away as a present.

But if you’re looking for something different, Sabina takes you well beyond just simple and traditional mums. Think baskets with fall grasses, colourful berries, brilliant foliage, and fragrant flowers. Why not look at a perennial vine which will be brilliantly coloured every fall, saving you the need to annually decorate? Add in a couple of perennial fall planters and you’re all set for years to come.

We also do custom plantings for our customers. Why not bring in your summer planters and let us add a few fall colours into them. We can customize them with whatever type of plants you would like. Make your planters last late into October.

Are Fall Mums Winter Hardy?

Unfortunately the mums we sell have been bred for beauty, not for cold tolerance. That said, some mums will survive the winter, but Sabina likes to refer to that as a “happy accident”. Your best chance to have them alive come spring is to plant them in a well-drained area. They do not like wet roots, especially cold, wet ones.

Flowering Kale & Cabbages

Flowering or Ornamental Kale in Sabina’s mind is one of the most under-rated plants for stunning fall colour. A relative of traditional edible kale, and a member of the cabbage family, flowering kale provides ruffled beauty to gardens, baskets, and containers.

Available in a range of colours from purples to pinks to white and green, kale is simply stunning.

Flowering cabbages are quite cold tolerant and can stand some snow on top of them, so they will add colour and texture to any planters, until our Canadian winter is just too much (hopefully not until January).
