October 2016

Celebrating our 13th Anniversary Season!

Hello Fellow Gardeners!

Fall is definitely here now that it's October. It is still one of the best planting seasons of the year - perhaps even better than the spring with nice warm soils and fall rains already beginning. It's time to do another garden project before the year is out, don't you think? We've included for one more issue an article on just this subject outlining why you should take advantage of the fall season for garden renovations and new plantings.

Bulb season is here! Our conventional bulb and rare bulb selections are now in stock. We have tons of beautiful bulbs and bulb blends ready for you to choose from now. We highlight some of our selection below. Make sure to get in soon while quantities last. We are selling out of lots of bulbs. And remember that our bulbs are up front out of the rain. So when it's pouring this weekend you can still come and shop!

Speaking of rare bulbs, we recently sent out a colourful Mail Order Alert on "Unusually Beautiful Tulips and Daffodils". We include it below.

Gary has been getting around media circles lately. Since we last updated you he's been on CityTV once and CFAX Radio's Gardening 101 twice. Check out links to the video and podcasts below.

In mid October the Cypripedium Hardy Lady's Slipper Orchids will be arriving. Check them out below. Once again, these plants are available for pre-order. Fall is the best time to plant them. Order early, some are already sold out.

We announce the winner of the ladder contest for the magnificent Hasegawa pruning ladder. I wonder who won. Was it you? And we announce a new contest for two tickets to attend the Vancouver Tea Festival. Check it out and enter the contest!

Our fall workshop season is underway. Fall Wreaths is this weekend and we have lots of exciting workshops coming up at the Christmas Hurrah! Don't miss the fun!

Cheers, Gary and the Phoenicians

A Note on the Quality of Bulbs

What many home gardeners don't realize when shopping for spring bulbs is that bulbs are graded and sold at the wholesale level based on their size. Retailers can choose what grades to buy. The bigger the bulb, the more likely it will be to flower, the larger those flowers will be, and the more numerous those flowers will be. Top grades usually cost a little bit more but they are worth it for the performance that they offer. You don't want a wimpy little tulip flower. You want a big boisterous tulip flower.

Many big box stores and grocery stores will offer what seems like good deals on bulbs at this time of year but beware: they are usually smaller grades and they might disappoint come spring.

At Phoenix Perennials we carry only the top grades available from the best growers in the Netherlands. Plus we have a lot of cool bulbs and awesome blends to make your spring magical.

Pre-Order
Cypripedium Lady's Slippers
31 Different Hardy Orchids for Canadian Gardens

We are excited to offer our largest selection ever of hardy lady's slipper orchids for Canadian gardens. These Cypripedium hybrids possess hybrid vigour -- they have inherited the best traits of both parents -- and are much easier to grow than species orchids, have beautiful flowers in amazing colours, and clump up very quickly into amazing displays in the part shade garden. They bloom in late April and May offering an exquisite show in the garden.

Most are "officially" hardy to zone 4 while some are hardy to zone 3 and even zone 2! Even the zone 4 plants may be hardy in protected spots in zone 3 with mulch and good snow cover. Indeed, we have customers in Alberta and Saskatchewan who are growing Cypripedium outdoors with great success.

We are currently offering 31 different lady's slipper hybrids for shipping to our mail order customers and for pick-up at Phoenix by our local customers in mid October 2016. All are top quality, blooming size, many with multiple eyes, and should flower in the spring. Here they are:

We will be providing them to you bare root. All you need to do is plant them directly into a well-drained location in part shade or morning sun. A winter mulch of fallen leaves or conifer boughs or needles can be helpful in the first winter. We'll provide you with detailed instructions when you receive your plants.

For mail order customers, October is the only time of year we ship Cypripedium lady's slipper orchids so please take advantage.

For our local customers, though we do offer them in growth in spring on site at Phoenix, buying and planting them in fall ensures our local customers the widest possible selection and potentially greater and quicker success in establishment. They arrive bare root and super fresh. Planting them directly into the garden in fall is the best way to establish them even for local customers. Mulch with a pile of leaves after fall planting.

Please note: Because we must pay our suppliers in advance, we will process payment of Cypripedium orders at the time of ordering. Should a cultivar not be available at the time of shipping/pick-up we will give you the choice of substituting a different cultivar, receiving a refund, or having a credit applied to your account for a future order.

Ordering: Visit Phoenix Perennials Mail Order for full details. Mail order and local customers should both place your orders through our mail order system. When checking out, local customers should select the pick-up option. Mail order customers should select their preferred shipping method. Have fun!

CONTAINER SERIES | Fall Wreaths | Kate | Sat Oct 8, 10am-12pm | $45 | Wreaths aren't just for Christmas or summer succulents. They can also make for a gorgeous fall display to adorn your home and garden. In this workshop you'll be presented with a variety of dried berries and flowers, corn husks, greenery, gourds, miniature pumpkins and more. Then you'll create your very own just in time for Thanksgiving! If you like, you can bring some materials from your home garden to include in your wreath. Look for dried flowers, berries and other autumnal interest.

 

December

THE CHRISTMAS HURRAH! | Do-It-Yourself Indoor Christmas Rose Container | Fri Dec 2nd-Sun December 4th, 10am-3pm | $30 + tax (Includes one budded/blooming hellebore and all the fixings.) | Come any time during the weekend and set yourself up at our self-serve craft tables. Select your blooming Christmas rose reserved for you, choose a clay pot or a festive metal container and decorate it with organza, ribbon, moss and winter twigs. A trusty Phoenician will be nearby if you need help.

This quick do-it-yourself project is great for decorating your home at Christmas or for gifts for friends and family at Christmas parties and gatherings. You'll probably want to do a few of them and you'll probably want to bring a friend.

   
THE CHRISTMAS HURRAH! | Hellebore in a Handbag | Kate | Fri Dec 2nd, 1-3pm | $45 (Includes purse and hellebore) | It's come to this, fellow gardeners. We're going to Hellebore in a Handbag for Christmas! With this unique project we'll plant up a Christmas rose in a moss purse with some friends & add festive winter greens. Last year I wasn't sure how our many (female) attendees were going to be able to fit any additional plants into their purses with such a large gorgeous hellebore. Somehow I underestimated everyone's ability to stuff their purses full of all manner of necessities!
   

THE CHRISTMAS HURRAH! | Christmas Rose Wreath Making Workshop | Kate | Sat Dec 3, 10am-12pm | $60 | Decorate your home for the holiday season with your very own Christmas Rose wreath! Kate will teach you how to design and build a festive, florist-quality wreath with unique greenery and dried pods and cones. She will then teach you to incorporate Christmas roses into your wreath keeping it colourful & dynamic!

Our popular wreath-making workshop is a great chance to spend quality time with friends and family while accomplishing a great project to lift your spirits through the short days of winter.

Registration includes all materials such as wreath frame and greenery. You may also bring greenery or twigs from your own garden to use in your wreath.

 

   

THE CHRISTMAS HURRAH! | Christmas Rose Bird's Nest Wreath Making Workshop | Kate | Sat Dec 3, 1-3pm | $75 (Includes hellebore.) | This class for advanced wreath-makers or ambitious beginners takes what we normally do in the our original wreath making workshop and builds on it with more creativity including nesting a potted hellebore within your wreath that looks like an adorable birds nest with white birds (hellebore flowers) peaking out.

Registration includes all materials such as wreath frame and greenery plus a hellebore. You may also bring greenery or twigs from your own garden to use in your wreath.

   

THE CHRISTMAS HURRAH! | Christmas Rose Centerpiece Workshop | Kate | Sat Dec 4, 10am-12pm | $75 (Includes hellebore.) | Here's another way to bring a hellebore inside for Christmas cheer - as a centrepiece for your Christmas table. You'll create a beautiful ring of winter foliage centred with a beautiful hellebore that you can plant in your garden in winter or spring. You can also use this centrepiece as a decoration for an outdoor table where it will bloom for months, often well into April!

Registration includes all materials and greenery plus a hellebore. You may also bring greenery or twigs from your own garden to use in your wreath.

   

THE CHRISTMAS HURRAH! | Christmas Rose Outdoor Container Workshop | Kate | Sun Dec 4, 1-3pm | $20 | Wow your Christmas guests as soon as they arrive at your front door or enliven your patio with a fantastic outdoor winter container centred with a glistening Christmas rose, Helleborus niger, and other great perennials and shrubs that offer winter interest. Kate will lead you in the design, planting and final decoration of your planter with winter twigs and greens.

RENOVATE YOUR GARDEN
Fall is the Best Time to Plant

[We're keeping this article in the E-News for one more issue to make sure you've read it. Have you read it? Don't make us publish it again! ;-) There are so many benefits to fall planting.]

Now that summer is winding down and you have spent most of the season with your garden you are now keenly aware of your triumphs and of the things that didn't go so well. Perhaps a handful of plants didn't perform and need to be moved to a different location. Or maybe a whole section of your garden just isn't working and hasn't been for years.

There is a time for caution and there is a time for action. Fall is a time for action. With temperatures cooling and the rains starting, fall is a great time to plant perennials, shrubs and trees. And since you can clearly see what is and isn't working right now in your garden-- as opposed to trying to remember next spring what you meant to change -- fall is the perfect time for a garden renovation while ideas are still fresh in your mind.

As it turns out, fall is not only one of the best times to move existing perennials it is also one of the best times of year to plant new plants in the garden, perhaps even better than spring. Here's why you should do some fall planting and renovating:

Big Plants: Plants purchased from our nursery in the fall have, for the most part, been growing for an entire season so they are big and full and ready to rumble! These same plants were just little babies in the spring. These big fall plants will establish very quickly in the garden owing to their size and to the favourable fall conditions.

Soil Temperatures: In spring the soil warms up much more slowly than the air. Cold spring soils can shock plants and set them back by weeks. In the fall the soil temperatures are warm and inviting for new plantings and their eager roots. Warm soil promotes fast, strong root growth allowing perennials to establish before winter.

Air Temperatures: The warm daytimes and cooler nighttimes offer moderate temperatures that do not stress plants allowing them to quickly overcome transplant shock and establish.

Precipitation: The gradual increase in precipitation through September and October into November results in soils with good available moisture for root establishment.

Length of Time for Establishment: Planting in September and October still gives plants a long time to get settled before the first hard frosts come, usually in December.

Insects and Garden Pests: Humans aren't the only ones thinking about hibernating at this time of year. Insects and other garden pests such as slugs are becoming less active and will soon die or go dormant for the season. Fall plantings reduce the risk of insect attack and plant damage.

Getting a Jump Start: Most people become a bit overwhelmed in the spring with all the planting and garden chores. By planting in the fall you can shorten your spring "to do" list.

Better Displays in the First Full Season: Because perennials, shrubs and trees establish so well in the fall, your plantings and their subsequent foliage and floral displays will be almost a FULL YEAR ahead of any plantings you make next spring just by planting 6 months earlier. You'll have bigger, fuller more smashing gardens sooner.

Here are some suggestions for going about your garden renovation this fall:

1. Take a walk around your garden and look for an area or areas that most bug you. Make sure the area you choose is a manageable size so you can complete your renovation in a weekend or two.

2. Ask yourself what is and isn't working in that area -- life is too short for plants that you don't love and for garden areas that are not beautiful. Dig out the plants that aren't working. If they are worth keeping, save them to plant in another area of the garden or give them to friends. With perennials, make sure to trim off a third to a half of the foliage to help minimize transplant shock. For shrubs whose shape you will not damage by trimming off some of the growth, dig up, trim and move. For shrubs and trees with architectural forms, wait until they are fully dormant or until November to move them and remove only minimal foliage.

3. Now look at the plants that are working in this area. Are they in the right place? Perhaps a plant looks great in this area but is so happy that it's growing taller than what you expected. If you need to shift some plants in the bed dig them out with as big of a root ball as possible and place them in a better location.

4. Now you're going to need some new plants. Look at your existing bed and decide what's missing in terms of height, foliage colour, flower colour, and bloom time. Make a list of your needs and come visit us at Phoenix. If you bring a picture of your garden bed renovation we could help you with some advice for the perfect plants to get this area of your garden spruced up and gorgeous for the upcoming year.

Have fun with your fall garden renovation and new plantings!
