Fall Asters

These are the Asters you will find available in our greenhouse beginning in late summer. If you want to try planting your Asters as perennials, they must be protected from winter winds. The earlier you can plant, the better chance your plants will have of surviving the winter. Use root stimulator at planting time to encourage root growth before frost. Mulch with 4-6” of mulch as soon as the ground freezes.

See our 2013 Perennial List for Aster varieties we sell throughout the year on our Perennial Lot, all of which are hardy for our area.
