Plant Spring Color NOW! 
Enjoying early spring color is as easy as planting bulbs this fall.  Dig, drop, done… it’s that simple!  Make it even easier on yourself and use an auger attached to your drill and you won’t even have to bend or shovel a thing!  Spring blooming bulbs require a period of cold-temperature dormancy to stimulate root growth, so the best time to tuck them into the ground is when temperatures hover between 40°F to 50°F.  It’s easy to do and so rewarding when the snow melts {or is still on the ground, think crocus!} and those gorgeous blooms begin to poke through.  Consider planting a drift of color along a path that draws your eye or place bulbs in groupings to provide a focal point within your gardens.  Don’t have sun-filled gardens?  Click here to see how you can create stunning patio pots filled with spring blooming bulbs.  We have hyacinth, specialty bulbs, daffodils, dozens of varieties of tulips, and bags of mixed bulbs.

Taste the Fall Season…
Fall means more than apples and pumpkins. Stop in and pick up some fresh, locally grown fall squash or cranberries and enjoy something special for dinner tonight! Squash is also an easy thing to freeze so you can savor the fresh flavor all winter and during the next growing season.  Bauer’s has plenty of other items only found at this time of year too… Scrumptious apple fritter bread (baked daily) that makes the best French toast, Minnesota made soups, fresh pressed apple cider, and so much more. And don’t forget your caramel apples!  

November Gardening Tip…
Rake and compost large leaves, like oak and maple.  Smaller leaves, such as ash, birch, or honey locust, can be mowed over and left as is!  Leaving these smaller leaves provides a nice fertilizer for your lawn.
