  • Fall is the best time to plant as conditions are usually perfect and plants can concentrate on first things first – growing their roots! Get ready for winter and be ready for spring! More information here.

  • Core aerate lawn with Yard Butler Core Aerator if didn’t do so in spring or if you have heavy clay soils or areas of compaction; reinvigorate with G&B Organics Lawn Fertilizer.

  • Fall is the best time to install a new lawn and to repair a lawn with many bare spots (grass seed germinates best once temperatures are below 80 degrees). We recommend Bonide Dura-Turf Premium Grass Seed & Lawn Seed Starter and G&B Organics Soil Building Conditioner. 

  • Plant trees, shrubs, perennials, and spring flowering bulbs. Be sure to mulch with G&B Organics Soil Building Conditioner.

  • Fertilize lawn with G&B Organics Lawn Fertilizer if you haven’t done so yet.

  • Purchase spring blooming bulbs now for best selections, but don’t plant until October.

  • Do not fertilize trees and shrubs with fast acting fertilizer between September 1 and March 14th. If your landscape is nutrient deficient, consider mulching with G&B Organics Compost  or Soil Building Conditioner or feed with G&B Organics All Purpose or Paradise slow release Fertilizers.

  • Treat chlorotic (washed out green/yellowish color) trees and shrubs with Endcap Iron. Perform a pH test or full soil analysis in chronic problem soils.

  • Put out Quail Blocks to feed those large recently hatched families of quail and other ground feeding birds​.
HIGH DESERT BIRD OF THE MONTH
Rufous Hummingbird
Selasphorus rufus

This smaller hummingbird presents an outsize personality at feeders, often chasing away larger hummingbirds with a combination of feistiness and impressive flight skill. At approximately 3.5”, the rufous hummingbird may possess the most closely perfect ratio of weight to size and outmaneuvers other hummingbirds for access to nectar and flowers. The males’ bright plumage is almost entirely orange, with some green on the back, and their throat patches will appear from red, to orange, to yellow to lime green, depending on the light. Females show orange on their sides and tail, which aids in distinguishing them from Anna’s and Black-chinned. They prefer wooded habitat both for nesting and in winter (in Mexico), but during migration can be found in suburbs, meadows, and scrub. Readily attracted to backyard feeders when nectar is offered during migration; best practice is to have multiple feeders when they are in town to give your other hummingbirds a chance. Rufous hummingbirds also eat a fair share of insects as well, gracefully plucking aphids from foliage and catching flying insects or dangling spiders mid-air.
Being part of a nursery has its perks! We carry stunning, vibrant, and unique succulents to create the most amazing succulent garden just for you. No two succulent gardens are the same. Every single Succulent Designer’s Choice is unique and custom made.
