Americans spend 93% of their time indoors! Our always-on, internet-connected lifestyles are a detriment to our well-being. Here at Bob’s we specialize in the outdoors! Let’s all work to reconnect with nature in 2019.
It's a weekend ritual in most neighborhoods: the raking and bagging of autumn leaves. And it is repeated, week after week until, at last, the last leaf has fallen.
Autumn is here, and soon we’ll start seeing cooler temperatures as winter approaches. October is the perfect time to start preparing for the transition to freezing temperatures. Here are some fall tasks that will help prepare your garden for winter.
Fall is the perfect time for planting wildflowers. Think about it! In nature wildflowers produce their seed in the fall. The seed then falls on the ground, goes dormant during the winter, and then sprouts in the early spring and summer. You can easily replicate this same process.
With autumn just around the corner, it might seem like the gardening season is coming to an end. However, now is the perfect time to bring a splash of fall color into your landscape to welcome the changing seasons. I know you’ll fall for these plants that are sure to get you thinking about falling leaves, cozy fireplaces, and pumpkin-spiced everything.
Garden mums provide unparalleled color in the fall months. Mums are photo-tropic, their life cycle is greatly affected by day length. When the days slowly become shorter in the fall, the Mum is triggered into developing flower buds.
