Fall planting at Sweet Springs East on Saturday, Nov 9th

Get Growing Sweet Springs!  We’ve all heard it. Fall is for planting. And like most old adages, there is a lot of truth to it – even more so in the case of native plants.  Why is it a good time?  The temperatures tend to be pretty moderate this time of year, with mild days and cool nights. The soil is still warm from summer and the temperature is optimal for root growth.  Plants can stretch out their roots just in time to soak up those winter rains and be ready to support a flush of spring growth.  And of course, fall is easy on the gardener too.  It’s not too hot and it’s not too cold.   And you don’t have to worry about getting all muddy.  So come join us for a fall planting at Sweet Springs East on Saturday, November 9th from 9am to 12pm.  We don’t have too many plants to put in, so we’ll be doing some fertilizing, weeding and raking too.  We’ll provide plenty of tools, tips & munchies.  Meet near the entrance at 4th & Ramona.
