What do you do when your unruly rose bed needs something a little formal to rein it in and give it year-round appeal? Alexandra Hedin reached out to us at #heyswansons for some help, and documented the creation of her new boxwood hedge in a fabulous how-to video!
Last time we reviewed the basics of planning a large planting project, from checking the availability of light and water (Step One: Evaluate Your Space) to determining your gardening style and how much you can accomplish with your budget (Step Two: Make a Plan). This week it's time for Step Three! Let's look at what we did here at Swansons to advance our Autumn Project: revamping our parking strip.
September is Autumn Project Month at Swansons Nursery and we know that early autumn is the best time to tackle those planting projects you've been meaning to do. The air and soil are still warm but the rains are coming - a perfect balance for new and transplanted plants to grow, become established before winter, and thrive next year and beyond. We've been busy helping you with your autumn projects and now we're doing one of our own.
Last night's Autumn Project Preview Event was a huge success, and we owe it all to YOU! Over 300 of Seattle's savviest gardeners descended on Swansons Nursery to enjoy first access to the exciting new plants brought in especially for Autumn Project Month and featured in our fabulous botanical lookbook.
This spring, Swansons Nursery launched the "Grow With Us” project to help people get the most out of their garden spaces. This free, online service offers personalized plant ideas, tips, and advice from our seasoned pros to help make your garden projects a success. We see it as a natural extension of what we already do for our customers here at the Nursery.
Here at Swansons, we have been busy thinking about ways to better share our expertise with gardeners of all levels. We are as excited as you are about your garden projects, so we have created an innovative new way to connect, offer advice and ideas, and share your success. After much behind-the-scenes planning, we are thrilled to announce our newest endeavor: the 'Grow With Us' project!
