Yes, Labor Day is over, but there are still new flowers to plant!
If you forgot to water this summer and your flowers are fried, or if you just need a spot of color here or there for fall, look for winter pansies.
Mischler’s Florist and Greenhouses, 118 South Forest Rd., Amherst, has them in a four-packs, 6 1/2-inch pots and combined containers. The winter pansies, grown right at Mischler’s, are frost tolerant. They’re capable of withstanding our unpredictable fall weather.
A seasonal favorite, colorful pansies bring delight to any garden, container or window box. The broad range of colors available makes it easy to complement any home’s decor.
In containers, winter pansies are annuals. But if you plant them in the ground, they may come back in the spring.
Check out other frost-tolerant annuals that help you stretch the gardening season, as well as this list of cold hardy plants.
