Summer flowers are best during July through early September as they love dry, warm weather. However, they will fade as the weather cools later in September and October. Thus, we perform our fall change-out to pansies during October. This is what we call “seasonal color” and the summer season is changed out to winter pansies.

Flowers are some of the most fun and gratifying segments of landscape maintenance. We get to play designer and work on new and creative designs, then plant and nurture while they get established. When they burst into maturity in July and August, we all can enjoy the planning and work that goes into the planting.  

Starting the first week of October, we started our change-out to Pansies. Although the pansies above are healthy and beautiful, to achieve these results significant effort is needed to protect pansy plantings through our wet winters. Our fall change-out and pansy maintenance program has been developed and updated over the years to provide the best results we can achieve. It has driven up the cost of pansies but has been built into our standard program as we insist that if not done pansies are doomed to fail. This program includes biological disease prevention treatment in the greenhouse, addition of fresh potting soil each fall when planting, and fungicide treatment at planting and monthly through the winter. It has been very effective as the pictures above show.  

We are sorry to see our summer flowers go but are excited to provide you with our successful pansy program that is the best in the local industry.
