Get stretching its Fall Garden Season

Hello Rob,

It's that 7th inning stretch of gardening! Time to limber up for Fall garden tasks. Whether it's planting spring bulbs, digging in new shrubs or perennials from our amazing sale, or starting to cut back plants, the time for chilling on the back patio and admiring your garden is slowly coming to an end. If you need a refresher on some of the Fall gardening tasks, check out our garden journal blog in the link below or drop in with any questions. We are always here to help!

Every season, many customers ask us about planting tulips and daffodils in the spring when they are in flower. This is your official reminder that spring flowering bulbs need to be planted in the Fall. Our full lineup of bubs is now in stock! Beautiful blooms come from strong large healthy bulbs so be sure to purchase your bulbs from a reputable source(it doesn't necessarily have to be us). Please remember that you get what you pay for and check the bulbs in the bag for rot or if they are dried up.

We have lots of great savings at the garden center this week, including our 9" fall mums, which are back to an old fashion price of 5 for $25 this week!

Follow us on Instagram @gemmellsgarden or Facebook for all the latest plant arrivals and info.

Peace & Plants,

Hard Neck Garlic

Check out this huge beautiful garlic that our very own Gillian grew this season in her garden! It won first prize at the Perth Fair.

October is the perfect time to plant garlic as the weather is cooler. Always choose hard neck locally grown garlic for the best crops.

Ours is grown right in Kemptville! For all the tasty varieties we have, drop in for a visit before it sells out, or check out our online store. If you have never grown garlic before, we can help!

Tulip 'Van Eijk Salmon'

We grew 300 of these in our front gardens in Smiths Falls this season and I have to tell you, they were magnificent! 

Lovely salmon-orange colour, with hints of deep pink, these tulips are sturdy stemmed with huge flower heads. 

Great cut flower!

Foxtail Lily

Ok, full disclosure, I am trying this one this season! ( well, maybe 3 ) These extraordinary flowers can grow up to 6ft tall in the full sun.

Tall peachy pink spires are showstoppers in the garden.

Pro tip from my Mom-in-Law: make sure the planting hole has adequate drainage (add a small amount of gravel to the bottom of the planting hole as they dislike wet winter soil) Also, mulch the top after planting for extra protection.

Hardy to Zone 5 (they apparently grow in Saskatoon). I love a challenge as well as rare and unusual plants, so count me in!

Tulip 'Continental'

This drama mama is a deep purple-black tulip that metal heads & goth kids everywhere will love!

Mysterious and elegant black tulips look amazing mixed with white tulips for contrast or even pink. Excellent as a cut flower.

Narcissus 'Lemon Shake'

If you love subtle-hued blooms this daffodil is for you! Delicate buttery cupped blooms have a deeper yellow edge. 

Flowers in early to mid-spring. Like all daffodils, it is deer resistant for all you country dwellers!
