Plant Style: A New Botanical Lookbook Unveiled for Autumn Project Month


With a nod to the fashion world, we are unveiling our first-ever digital botanical lookbook, which captures the beauty of a specially chosen collection of perennials, trees and shrubs that will soon be highlighted at the nursery for Autumn Project Month. Our buyers, after visiting and collaborating with their favorite local growers - including Blooming Nursery, Skagit Gardens, White Picket Gardens and Paradise Lake Nursery - are incredibly excited about the exceptional plants Swansons will be able to offer our customers this autumn.

We asked our friends over at Curator PR how we could highlight our cool finds and they created a runway-worthy lookbook for us, with photos, stories and lots of great info from our buyers about the plants.

Because of the long-standing relationships our buyers have with these and other growers, we are able to offer our customers special deals, so during Autumn Project Month (August 29-September 30) all perennials, shrubs and trees will be 30% off!

Look for special signs indicating plants that are great for specific garden projects, such as parking strips and rockeries. The plants found in the lookbook will also be highlighted, so they will be easy for you to find.

Why autumn? Successful gardeners know autumn is the time to launch garden projects, big and small. The mix of warm soil, cooler temperatures and rain provides the perfect growing conditions for strong roots and gorgeous, thriving plants next spring.

Don't forget to sign up to become an e-Garden Club member to receive an invitation to an exclusive Project Preview Event, happening on August 28th. Enjoy early access to the new plants at a 30% discount, advice from landscape designers, complimentary beer from Hilliard's, fabulous food and a chance to win $1000 in Swansons plants and products.

Bring in your #heyswansons project board at the event and all month long for an extra 10% off. Those over 55 years of age will also receive their Thursday discount during the event and on every Thursday during Autumn Project Month.

So take a look at the 2014 Autumn Collection and get inspired. Then visit us during Autumn Project Month - and don't forget to bring your questions and ideas. We're excited to get some projects started!
