As its ancient meaning implies, Autumn brings the passing of another season of growth and the harvest season upon us. Even if us ‘town folks’ are not actually harvesting anything, the fall harvest can still be celebrated at farmers markets, pick-your-own orchards, pumpkin farms, and of course garden centers. In the landscape and countryside, fall marks a time of amazing color in many trees, shrubs and plants, as they blaze forth in their final act of the seasonal play.
Come and join us at our store on Oakland Park Avenue in North Linden to celebrate the fall season and stock up on pumpkins, mums, and other plants for the garden. Autumn is an excellent time for planting most kinds of trees and shrubs, seeding and repairing the lawn, and installing landscape beds. Our gardening experts are always ready to help.

In our frenzied lives, wse all yearn for that secret place to escape to, if only for a few minutes a day. The cozy den with your favorite chair, the hammock under the Sugar Maple, the garden bench by the fountain or the leafy garden walkway past your favorite perennials. They are special places to relax the mind and restore the spirit, and should be part of any landscape.
Let our experts at Oakland help you plan your secret place with our great selection of plants, statuary, fountains, and garden accents. We can turn a landscape that is just ‘pretty to look at’ into something special to live in.
Perennials for Fall Color
The great thing about perennial flowers in the garden, is that you plant them once and they perform every year, over and over. With a little planning, you can achieve a progression of color throughout the season and late into fall, with perennials that will shrug off the cold and even a light frost. Look for these 10 perennials at the Oakland store near you, and let our gardening experts help put some fall color and texture in your garden.
Sedum: Many varieties of this tough plant, that are pollinator magnets.
Anemone: Several kinds that bloom white or pink.
Balloon Flower: Masses of blue or purple flowers.
Aster: A favorite in violet or white, especially in naturalized gardens.
Plumbago: Very tough, with cobalt blue blooms.
Helianthus, or Swamp Sunflower: For a splash of Yellow.
Goldenrod: Great tall perennial for the garden.
Yarrow or Achilla: Many varieties and colors of this broad fuzzy bloom.
Heuchera: The foliage is the show, and a great show it is.
Ornamental Grasses: Most have a fall display of seed heads which provide upright contrast and texture in the garden.
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.“
