(Costumes welcome!)

Hey, kids, come help us turn our Tiny Town into Spooky Town! That’s right–no one likes Halloween better than fairies, elves and gnomes! And they love to see kids in costume (so wear yours on Saturday if you want!) We’ll also be doing some special Halloween projects for you to take home. Garden Elves Club is always fun and it’s always free.


RSVP: We’d love to know in advance if you’re coming. Call us at 612-866-3033 or email us at [email protected] Reservations are helpful–but not required.

Fall Bulbs Sale!






Fall bulbs are now 25% off–and it’s the perfect time to plant these magical nuggets for a spectacular spring show! Best of all, it’s so easy even a beginner can do it.

Tips for bulb success:

  • Plant as soon as temperatures are staying in the 40s and 50s
  • Plant all bulbs with the pointed end pointing up
  • Water thoroughly after planting
  • Squirrels digging? Cover area with chicken wire

Think you have too much shade? Remember, though bulbs like sun, most bulbs will be up before the trees have leafed out. No garden? Try potting up a few bulbs in pots to “force” blooming inside this winter–we’ll show you how!


Fall Container Workshop, Sat., Sept. 20, 11am

UG_Container2A 60-day plan for colorful containers!

Join us for this hour-long event and learn the tricks the pros use to keep containers looking good all season long. Whether you want to simply revive your summer containers or start fresh, we’ll show you how to transition to the colors of autumn by adding mums, asters, pansies, grasses, ornamental kale/cabbage, pumpkins, gourds, grapevine, dried flowers and more.

Best of all, we’ll make sure you know how to keep your containers looking good until it’s time to put in the evergreens for (gasp!) winter.

  • Bring in your containers and we’ll help you put a great combination together
  • Bring photos of your containers so we can suggest the perfect plants for them
  • Choose a new container or basket here to fill

The event is free. So we can better plan for space requirements, reservations are appreciated–but not required. RSVP (612) 866-3033.

Clearance Sale: 25% to 40% off all perennials, shrubs and trees!

Late summer-early fall is a perfect time to plant–with plenty of time for them to get going! Just give them a little extra water and TLC if the weather is hot. We still have a great selection to choose from. Come find that perfect addition to your landscape–then sit back and enjoy the view!
