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 that’s why spring blooming bulbs get planted in the fall.  It’s easy to do and so rewarding when the snow melts {or is still on the ground… ahem 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?  Check out the image below 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…
Mulch your perennials, especially garden mums and roses. This protects both plant roots & crowns and moderates the extreme temperature changes we experience causing winter freeze and thaws.
