We hope you are enjoying a beautiful fall season. This month we want to connect you with therapy gardens, updated green jobs resources, champion trees, pumpkin recipes, and a few ways to get your spirits up for Halloween. 

Perhaps you are looking to add seasonal plants to your garden for Halloween. Or maybe you want to create a garden theme that leaves a haunting impression throughout the year. 

Selected below are plants that can be incorporated into your planters or landscape to conjure up a little wicked fun based on their name, color or appearance. And some may have a little folklore to them as well.  

Happy Autumn! As the season changes and the weather begins to cool, this is a great time of the year to plant perennials and trees, explore fall foliage, sow a fall vegetable garden, and to save seeds for the future. So let’s dig into fall and enjoy all the outdoor activities it has to offer. 

As we draw near to the end of the summer and our growing season, I wanted to share with you some content to help you relax, unwind, and enjoy.  

We made it to the middle of summer and 2020! This month I wanted to share a few things to look forward to so I’ve gathered together some new plant introductions, upcoming virtual events, a 2021 garden trends forecast, and more. Keep growing and I hope you are looking forward to something new blooming in your garden too. We’d love to see you sharing about it on Plants Map. 

Summer has arrived and the growing season is heating up. This month we wanted to share highlights from Pollinator Week and more online events, virtual tours, and other garden opportunities.

As we continue to practice physical distance but social connectedness, we have again focused this month on online content, events and activities. Wishing everyone a beautiful new chapter in your garden and landscape as we transition from spring to summer soon. 

We hope this E-journal finds you staying safe and healthy as well as continuing to find ways to ‘dig in’ at home. This month we want to share with you links to our recent online video presentations, a few virtual events, and other online resources to help you stay connected with plants and others during this time.
