Welcome October’s Autumn Splendor!

The fall season is upon us, time to enjoy cooler temperatures as the days begin to shorten.  The beautiful colors of fall; reds, oranges, golds and copper are for us to appreciate as the leaves turn in our backyards and scenic highways.

Gale’s is your Harvest Headquarters with an abundance of Mums, Pumpkins, Corn stalks, Straw bales, Gourds and Harvest and Halloween decorations for your home, indoors and out!

The first step in getting your yard ready for winter would be to clean out debris in grassy areas and garden beds.  After applying the final application of lawn fertilizer, usually mid to the end of October, depending on the weather, it is best to cut your lawn at a setting of 2” to 2.5”.  This will help prevent winter snow mold from damaging your grass.

Now is the perfect time to plan and plant spring blooming bulbs such as tulips, daffodils and hyacinths.  Choose top size bulbs for the best possible blooms in spring.  Use Bulb tone by Espoma to encourage strong spring growth.

It is not too late to take advantage of fall discounts on trees and shrubs.  There is plenty of time to plant, until the ground freezes.  We are ready to help you select the perfect specimen for your landscape!

Fall is the ideal time to enrich your soil with, Espoma Organic Garden Soil on sale now, regularly $7.99 each, now only 2 for $12.00!  By adding the soil now, you are getting a step ahead on your spring projects at a discounted price!

October is a great time to begin a routine spraying of Deer Stopper by Messina Wildlife Management to repel deer and rabbits from your landscape.  It is recommended to repeat spraying every 30 days.  This product has a minty smell, so it is not very offensive to you or your neighbors!

Mark your calendars for November 10 th and 11 th!  Gale’s Christmas elves have been very busy decorating for our Holiday display and we look forward to seeing you at the open house!  Fun for all!!!
