The Ridge Road Garden Center is situated on one acre in the foothills in Pine Grove, CA; the gift shop is 1600 square feet of unique and often one-of-a-kind gifts. There’s usually something to do in your garden at any point of time in the year. It could be actual hands-on early spring chores or preparing for the next busy summer or fall seasons, and certainly planting and harvesting. The Garden Center has all you need! Fall will arrive soon and late summertime is one of the busiest times ever! Come and see our vast assortment of garden accessories to prepare your gardens for fall and winter.  

The Garden Center offers Gift certificates, house plants, yard art, lawn needs, ornamental grasses & more!🌱🌿🌼💝 Check out our colorful perennials, shrubs and bulbs for spring blooms. Remember: If you want a stunning show of color next spring, this fall is the time to plan your bulb garden. Daffodils, tulips, crocus, hyacinths, lilies, and other spring-blooming bulbs are planted in the fall. They grow roots into early winter, then rest until it's time to sprout and bloom in early to late spring, depending on the type. Added bonus for our area is that many bulbs are deer resistant! Shop early for the best selections. Lots of interesting new varieties and types of fruit each year. See what's blooming all around you and make notes for fall and spring planting!

What To Do in the Garden

  • This is a great time to order and plant spring flowering bulbs now, such as daffodils, crocus and hyacinths, for glorious color next year.

  • Pot up mint/parsley for fresh herbs through the winter.

  • Order trees and shrubs. They will grow vigorously next spring if planted this autumn.

  • Clean up your flower beds. Cut back perennials that are done blooming. And trim off any dead vegetation.

  • Continue deadheading flowers which will allow plants to use energy reserves for a final flower display.

  • Check moisture of hanging baskets and container plantings daily.

  • Feed your lawn with an autumn fertilizer which is rich in potassium and low in nitrogen.

  • Continue to feed and deadhead hanging-basket and container annuals — they will often keep going until the first frosts.

  • Keep camellias and rhododendrons well watered at this time of year to ensure that next year's buds develop well.

  • Eliminate invading vines covering trees and shrubs.

 

Perennials - Did you know pansies can handle the cool weather? They’re great at it, and this is good news for anyone who would like a burst of color in the cooler fall months ahead. You are going to be looking at what plants can you still plant and get a harvest before your first frost date. Container gardens make attractive accents to grow in the problem landscape spots. Check for water daily.

Continue to harvest garden herbs before frost sets in. Go through your herbs and snip them loose from the stalk using scissors. Once they’ve been harvested, bring them indoors to wash and store in a freezer bag. Store them in the freezer for later use. You can also hang them to dry for use throughout the winter.

This is the perfect time to prune your evergreen trees and shrubs. Make sure the weather has cooled somewhat before pruning.

Peas, Broccoli, Carrots, Beets, Swiss Chard, Radishes, Kale and Turnips can still be grown for a tasty harvest later. 

Order your strawberries, raspberries, currant bushes and other berry fruits for cropping next year as these plants are best planted during their dormant season.

Cut bean and pea plants away at ground level when they have finished producing. Leave the roots, as this will slowly release nitrogen back into the soil as they break down.

Net ponds now before autumn leaf fall gets underway to reduce the amount of debris entering the water. Clean out cold frames and greenhouses ahead of autumn sowing and growing.

No matter what you’re planting, I hope your garden is a source of pleasure as well as sustenance! Have fun in the garden, teach your kids to garden and enjoy the fall harvest!
