Flower Report for October 2 2013

The summer floral display is nearing its end and we will be starting the annual changing of the display borders to biennials and bulbs this week. Thousands of colourful Chrysanthemums have been planted to enhance the beauty of the display and to extend the show of colour through this month. The star of the fall show continues to be our magnificent Dahlia border which is unrivaled in its colour and beauty. The flowers are absolutely stunning with some of the plants reaching well over 9 feet tall!
