Dazzling deciduous trees, November garden oomph!, 2020 T-shirts still available!

Dynamic deciduous trees!

One of the greatest joys of gardening is bearing witness to the changes each season etches upon the landscape. While the crisp blustery autumn days feel invigorating, they also afford some of the most dynamic transformations. The featured deciduous trees are internationally renown for their undemanding handsome habits and prismatic fall displays. Please feel free to visit the tree section of our website and learn more about them!

November garden oomph….

The shorter days and cooler nights of November kindle tantalizing fall color when we include a medley of both evergreen and deciduous woody plants coupled with herbaceous perennials and ornamental grasses. Thankfully, once fall settles in, most of us have less gardening chores and more time for leisurely strolls through our leafy sanctuaries. The plants included in this newsletter offer either late season blooms, captivating leaves or artful branching patterns plus beguiling late season oomph! We hope you’ll consider digging some of them into your garden. 

All of us Digging Dog plant wranglers wish you Happy Digging and good health.
