What's Going on at the Nursery

We will be closed Sept 2nd - 5th
for Labor Day Weekend

September and October

During September and October things get busy here at the nursery. Our fall shipping season begins in early September and runs through October and into November for those of you in a warmer climate. Fall is a great time to plant the bareroot plants as well as many of our potted plants. Early spring blooming plants respond well to fall planting as the roots can get established and be ready to flower come spring.

We are also getting the last of our seedlings potted up so they can get some root growth before winter comes and be ready to sell come next spring. Fall is also the time of year we do a lot of root divisions for future crops.

It has been a hot summer so we are looking forward the cool fall nights and mild days.

The leaves in our area are usually in full color around mid-October, it is definitely a beautiful time of year here in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We look forward to hearing from you soon and if you have any questions please email us at contact@gardensoftheblueridge.com or give a call 828-733-2417 and we will be glad to assist you.
Get your order in today while our supplies are good, if you are not ready to plant simply select your ship date and we will ship on your desired ship date.

Do you have a wedding in your future? We may be able to help you make that day even more special. With the marriage of Rob’s Daughter last year, she chose to have a DIY natural Wedding, and we had the honor of providing and handcrafting real garlands, wreaths, Ceremony arrangements, and reception centerpieces especially designed for the outdoor setting she chose. It turned out to be an absolutely beautiful and dreamy day!  So we decided to give our customers the same opportunity to add natural details to their Weddings and Special Events. We are making available our beautiful mountain greenery, handcrafted into Garlands, Wreaths, Centerpieces, and many more options to help you add a rustic elegant touch to your event. Please visit our Wedding Page by Clicking Here or call our office for more information.
