FALL LAWN CARE:
Time to feed your cool season lawns, apply winterizer now and again in early-mid December. You can also apply lime and gypsum at this time.

BULB PLANTING:
October 15-January 15 is the best time for planting spring blooming bulbs.
Amaryllis, paperwhites, and 'pre-cooled' hyacinth bulbs are avaiable for winter forcing.
Stop by soon while selection is still good!

In the early years of Rolling Ridge, it was quite the fashion to use a live, (with a rootball) evergreen to use as a focal point for Christmas season activities. Over the years, this practice has subsided with the introduction of cut Fraser Firs and their wonderful fragrance and with the popularity of artificial. However, there seems to be a resurgence of sorts with bringing this tradition back as a new generation like the idea of live, but would prefer to have a tree that can be planted when the holidays are over. We have brought in a nice selection of 4' Spruce trees that are nice and full with good tapers, that will make nice decorated trees and can then be moved outdoors for planting. Typically, winter planting of evergreens, such as these, can be quite successful.

The cooler temps should be a signal that the summer vacation has come to an end for our houseplants!
