It may seem like planting time is done, but we are busier than ever at the greenhouse. We have several fall events coming up, because late summer and early fall are great times to plant.

Starting this week, you will find our plants at the Marquette Food Co-op. Pick up a few to round out your beds. They also make great gifts!

We have two more dates scheduled at the Wednesday Marquette Farmer's and Artist's Market - August 18 and September 8. It's at the Marquette Commons on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 pm. We may pick up a few more dates depending on our schedule and whether there are openings at the Saturday Market. Keep tabs on our Facebook page or check out Whats Happening on our webpage.

August 28 is the Marquette County Conservation District Summer Plant Sale. Preorder now on their website to get an exclusive 38-plant garden kit at a great price! Pickup is on August 28 from 9 am to 2 pm at 780 Commerce Dr. Suite C, Marquette, MI 49855. Not looking for a whole garden kit? Stop by the pickup location to browse over 30 different plants from our greenhouse. We will be bringing some things we don't normally bring to markets. Shhhh...

Western UP Friends: We are coming your way on September 18. From 10 to 3, central time, we will be at the Art Harvest event at 4493 County Highway B, Land O Lakes, WI, just over the UP border. Now is the time to pre-order and take advantage of free pickup without having to drive to Marquette! Just let me know that you will be picking up at Art Harvest, and I'll bring the plants to you. We will be featuring lakeshore/river/wetland/ditch/rain garden plants at this event, so make sure you take a look at our Frog Friends Collection. Remember to enter code "freshwater" at checkout for 20% off this collection!

There's always room for more plants.

Don't fret the frost. As long as the soil is above freezing a perennial plant will use some of its stored energy to grow roots in preparation for spring. The soil won't freeze until weeks, sometimes months, after first frost. Just keep planting! Shop now at
