If there were ever an autumn that begs us to plant bulbs, this is it. We’ve had lots of time, but the weather continues to cooperate. Lockwood's still has a good selection in stock. You can have beds that will be bursting with daffodils and crocuses next spring!

Storms are on our minds this week, as we have watched the people, animals, buildings and shorelines of Florida assaulted by Hurricane Irma. We don’t worry much about hurricanes here: A recent report listed Buffalo as the fourth-safest city in terms of natural disasters, even if we experience some much-publicized snowstorms

Some of the plants that showed off for our garden-peeping tourists and guests during July and early August are still going strong: tall Rudbeckia ‘Herbstonne', daisies and perennial geraniums that were cut back, reblooming roses, and late daylilies.
But then what?

We all make mistakes, and veteran gardeners invariably admit to big ones. Why not learn from them and try to avoid these classics? Then you’ll be free to make your own.

For something fragrant and lasting in your garden, thousands of you are likely to choose a rose. No flower elicits nostalgia and tender memories quite like a rose. May is prime time for rose sales and it is the perfect time for planting them.
So many roses are better than ever.

Some of these gorgeous dahlias have blooms up to 12" across! These bulbs come in bags of 2 each and aren't called "Dinner Plate" for nothing. Get yours before they are gone!

Learning directly from impassioned teachers is still better than all that Google and websites can offer.
At least that is my experience from attending seminars and conferences in the gardening and landscaping world. It was obviously true for the 50-some attendees who came to hear Roxanne McCoy teach "Creating a Cutting Garden" at Lockwood’s Greenhouses last Saturday.

Help us plant one million gardens to help save the bees!
Everyone can answer this call to action to preserve and create gardens and landscapes that help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across the country. We will move millions of individuals, kids and families outdoors and make a connection between pollinators and the healthy food people eat.
