Chrysanthemums are getting ready to burst!

Through a generous donation of time, money, and plant material from local Chrysanthemum aficionado Steve Dawkins, The Gardens at Heather Farm has installed a delightful display of standard mums.  Irrigated via drip and accented with beans to added beauty and nitrogen fixation, this spot is sure to be a show stopper in October.  These are not your garden variety mums.  We are stocked with unusual specimens that won’t be found in many gardens in the area.  The rose garden will be in top condition at this time as well, so make sure to plan a trip to walk the gardens in the fall to see the complimentary blooms!  Here’s a shot of the current state of affairs:
