Echter's Home

Summer is winding down and everyone is preparing to welcome autumn — but here at Echter's, we're thinking about spring! Why? Our spring-flowering bulbs are here, and it's time to begin planning next spring's color show!

If you've never tried planting bulbs before, it's easy. They're among the easiest flowers to grow, and even a novice gardener can create a breathtakingly beautiful spring color display. This is one autumn garden task that pays big rewards the following spring. Check out Spring Bulb Planting 101 for lots of info on how and where to plant bulbs for the best results.
Why Plant Spring Bulbs in the Autumn?
It's because bulbs require a long period of cool temperatures to spark the biochemical process that causes them to flower next spring. It's important to get them into the ground in the autumn after the weather cools, but before the ground freezes.

What's On the Shelves?
You'll find a variety of colorful spring favorites! Choose from a selection of tulips, crocus, iris, snowdrops, daffodils, and more.
Explore Perfect Partners Packs!
It's easy to be overwhelmed by all of the different varieties of bulbs, the bloom times, and all of those irresistible colors! Make it easier with a Perfect Partners pack! These are bags of bulbs with two or more complementary spring flowers that will bloom at the same time and are chosen to look great together.
Pay us a visit! Mums are blooming in beautiful autumn colors on the benches, and asters, sedums, ornamental grasses & other fall classics are available in the perennial yard. In the greenhouses look for pansies in pots and flats for a bright splash of color in fall container plantings. We'll help you fill out your fall garden beds, and get next year's spring color show started!

It's still a great time to plant! Cooler weather offers comfortable planting conditions, and plants have time to establish themselves before winter due to the still-warm soil temperatures.

Pansies planted this month will stay in bloom until the ground freezes! Mulch them for winter protection, and these hardy plants will be back in flower when the warm days of spring return. They're great companions for spring-flowering bulbs.

Lawns grow best in spring and fall! They'll benefit greatly from two more feedings. In September, fertilize your lawn with Green Thumb Lawn Fertilizer. Then in mid-October, follow with Green Thumb Winterizer. Your lawn will thank you next spring! In addition, bindweed, dandelions, and other perennial weeds will be moving food reserves down to their roots now. This is a great time to use
Ferti-lome's Weed Free Zone to kill these invasive weeds, roots and all.

Avoid excessive pruning of trees and shrubs because pruning encourages new growth to begin, and you want the plants to harden off before going into
dormancy for the winter.
