Pumpkin Walk


Pumpkin Walk 2021 is an all-month, daytime event. Walk our trail and view the hundreds of decorated pumpkins and vignettes. This year we will have BBQ on four Saturdays and live music on two weekends.

We're sure you've noticed that it's crisp at night and the fall colors are really starting to show their stuff. While the Pumpkin Walk is on our mind in October, don't forget that fall is also a time to get your plants in the ground and start prepping for the colder months.

  • Fall is a great time to plant trees and shrubs. The cooler weather is less stressful on many plants, and getting them in the ground now gives their root systems a chance to establish themselves.
  • We just received a shipment of native plants and fall-blooming camellias. And don't forget to refresh your pots with pansies, mums, ornamental cabbages, and other spots of color.
  • Spring bulbs are in and should be planted now. Narcissus, tulips, crocus, hyacinths, and other favorites!
  • Several varieties of garlic are in, and onions and shallots are on their way.
  • Remember to keep watering your garden. Despite the rains we've been getting, remember that your plants, especially newly planted ones, need a nice deep drink in order to establish their roots.
  • Look for our newsletter in the mail. It has a coupon for EB Stone Planting Compost.



Now through mid-October is a great time to fertilize, over-seed, and mulch. The ground is still warm (NW grass seed germinates when the ground is 55F or warmer) and the rains naturally keep the ground moist.

As you get ready for winter, so do your houseplants. With shorter, cooler days, less light, and less humidity, you should think about making your houseplants comfy for winter ahead.

  • If any of your houseplants were outside in the sun, it's time to bring them back in. (Make sure you do a bug inspection to make sure they aren't bringing in any unwanted visitors.)
  • Houseplants need less water during the winter, as they grow slower during the shorter days. Slower growth also means that houseplants need little to no fertilizer during the cold months.
  • You may need to add a grow light or move some of your plants to a brighter location. Or move some away from spots that were warm during the summer but cool in the winter.
  • You may also need to add a humidifier as the indoor air is pretty dry during the winter.
  • Oh yes, don't forget to buy some new plants to give your existing houseplants some company. We are continuing to bring in new houseplants almost every week. Check our Facebook or Instagram accounts to see some of the cool things that Lisa finds each week!
