What Are You Up To In The Garden?

What Are You Up To In The Garden?

We’re always excited to learn about what our friends and customers are up to in the garden. Finding out what other gardeners are thinking about and doing inspires us. Conversations lead to new ideas and new ways of gardening. What are you up to in the garden this fall? Are you contemplating any projects? We’d love to hear all about it!

Swansons' Autumn Project, Part Two: Our New Parking Strip

Swansons' Autumn Project, Part Two: Our New Parking Strip

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.

Swansons' Autumn Project, Part One: The Planning Stages

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.

Thanks for a Great Event!

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.
