Lets Get Ready For Fall!

Sponsored by: McDonald Garden Center

Looking to update your garden for Autumn but not sure where to start?  McDonald Garden Center has the answers to all of your questions.  Ashley joins Mike Westphal, resident Garden Guru at the McDonald Garden Center, to learn which plants thrive in the fall and when and where to plant them in your home.

Decorate your front yard with a beautiful splash of color with some perennial mums, and of course, pumpkins and gourds can help create a perfect fall feeling on your porch. Pansies will give you another beautiful touch and can be easily replaced in the spring.

Looking to go large?  McDonald Garden Center has the solution for that as well.  Fall is the perfect time to plant trees due to their developing root system.  Planting trees now gives them a better chance of survival during the hot summer. So whether you are looking for some beautiful color as in crepe myrtles, or the height of a majestic conifer, you can find them all in their trees and shrub section.

If you are looking to bring some gorgeous fall colors inside, McDonald Garden Center has the answer for that as well. They have one of the largest collections of indoor plants in Hampton Roads.  If your thumb isn’t very green, check out their cactus and succulent collection.  Brighten up your living space with their beautiful mums, and easy to care for snake plants.

And if mowing the lawn is your thing, try their 2 kit program which makes it simple to keep your lawn looking lovely and green throughout the fall, and keep those weeds out in the spring.

Open 7 days a week from 9am-6pm, McDonald Garden Center is the perfect place to shop for all of your indoor and outdoor garden needs!
