Did You Know...

Fall is an excellent time to plant trees!

Did You Know...

Some people even desire  

Tree Gardens

 to leverage the beauty and benefits of multiple tree types in one area of their landscape!


Did You Know..

Trees help clean the air by intercepting airborne particles and absorbing pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.



Did You Know...

The roots of trees help to stabilize the soil, prevent erosion and reduce stormwater runoff.


Did You Know...

Trees muffle noise almost as well as stone walls! Planted at strategic points around your landscape, trees can abate noises from businesses, roads and airports.


Did You Know... 

Trees and landscaping help increase property values by up to 15%.

We hope this finds you having a fun-filled Fall season! Even though we've had periodic episodes of rainfall, we are still facing dry conditions, so be sure to water everything from your containers to your evergreens!  Plants tolerate frost conditions better with ample soil moisture.

Conversely, we've seen downy mildew on some impatiens plants as a result of our cool, wet Spring and warm Fall days with cool nights. This fungus can be problematic as it is transported in the wind. Our crews are paying close attention, looking for the grayish-white areas under the leaves, plant yellowing or stunted growth. Affected plants are being removed where needed.

We continue our Fall soil prep activities, adding compost where needed.  Our fun and fabulous Fall Harvest containers are now being installed, and we hope you enjoy the choice materials and the creativity of our designers!


Fall Bulbs for Spring Color

New Bulb Varieties are Arriving Soon
Our Fall bulb proposals have been sent via e-mail, and our line-up of new bulbs this year is spectacular! 

New tulip varieties include 'Mascotte', 'Yellow Crown' and 'Color Magic.' A new daffodil we like is the 'Double Beauty.'

We're excited to start planting your Spring color in October!

Fall is for Planting
Plants We're Excited About
We love planting in the Fall! The plants love it, too! We're planting trees, shrubs and perennials through mid-October.

A new shrub we admire is the 'Little Devil' Ninebark, which adds a deep burgundy color to the garden while attracting butterflies! This low maintenance plant is also drought tolerant. White-pink flowers emerge in June, making it a great choice for any garden area.

This awesome 'Hot Papaya' Echinacea grows to 3 feet tall, and starts out with a bright orange pom-pom before turning color to a brilliant scarlet red. It's light fragrance attracts hummingbirds, and it remains colorful all season!

Heidi Hosts the Lake Minnetonka Garden Club
Heidi shared her water conservation practices and techniques with the  Lake Minnetonka Garden Club last week. Attendees were shown a new video created in partnership with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District. In it Heidi describes her best management practices in more detail. It also features the permeable paver system installation process.


See the new video about Heidi's water conservation practices and how a permeable paver system is installed:
Heidi's Lifestyle Gardens presents water conservation best management practices and a permeable paver installation.
For more information about any of our project installation services, seasonal containers or landscape management, visit www.BloomOnMN.com.


We remain busy planting, installing new gardens and hardscapes, and maintaining the landscapes we love and adore.  Let us know if you need a new installation yet this season.  There is still time! 

If it's true that we are about to experience the most colorful Fall in ten years, here's wishing we all make time to "sit still and watch the leaves turn."
