GREENER HOME By Brad Ott
As the days get shorter and cooler, we start to shift our focus
from outside to our indoor retreats. The excitement and zest of summer is coming to an end and grey days are on the horizon. There is no need to fear! Creating a bright and ﬂourishing indoor space is easier than you may think! Here are some tips on selecting the right plants for your home and how you can keep them happy during the darker months. Deciding on plants for your space will depend on the conditions of your home. Many plants can simply be placed in a low light area and thrive on neglect, while others require more attention and a brighter location to do well. Consider the following, where would you like to place the plant and how much light does that spot receive? A bright, directly lit location will satisfy the needs of plants such as citrus trees or a bird of paradise, while bright indirectly lit areas will be suﬃcient for the monstera or a ﬁddle leaf ﬁg. Lower lit areas of your home will meet the needs of tropicals such as snake plants, pothos or zz plants. If you ﬁnd your home is quite dry and full of bright direct light, cacti and succulents may be the perfect plants for you.

OUR TOP PICKS FOR FALL 2019 Monstera (Monstera deliciosa)
Our top plant pick this Fall! Honestly, how can it not be? The large gorgeous leaves and the unique fenestrations have us wanting one in every bright, indirectly lit corner of our homes (too much bright direct light will cause the leaves to burn and yellow). The monstera is a natural climber, providing it with a moss pole will replicate a tree trunk and will allow the plant to behave naturally. Remember to regularly mist your monstera, this will help raise the humidity and keep your plant happy!
Snake Plants (Sansevieria)
The sleek and slender foliage of the snake plant is the perfect addition for those lower lit areas of your home! Set it and forget it! They do not require much care or frequent watering. To top it oﬀ, the foliage will clean the air and be a wonderful statement piece for almost any corner.
Umbrella Plant (Scheﬄera)
The unique shape of the scheﬄera leaves will deﬁnitely be the talk of the town! Have you seen the variegated variety? This plant will thrive in a warm spot with bright, indirect light. Be careful not to over water! Allow the soil to dry out between waterings and water them thoroughly. Remember to cut back on watering during winter to prevent root rot.
Peacock Plant (Calathea)
The perfect patterns of the calathea plant will add a pop of design to your home. They will be happy in a warm spot with indirect light; too much bright light may cause fading of the leaves. Keep the soil moist during the growing months but not soaking or sitting in water.
Bamboo Palm (Chamaedorea seifrizii)
These gorgeous fronds are a top rated air-purifying plant! Unlike most palms, this one can handle lower levels of light than most (Bright direct light will scorch its leaves). Keep its soil moist but not soaking, it does not like to sit in water. This palm will be a wonderful addition to your home or oﬃce!
Success With Bulbs W
ith crisp autumn mornings ahead of us, colourful spring blooms seem to be miles away. But when spring ﬁnally greets us with delicate snowdrops and crocuses poping up everywhere, a fall planting of bulbs pays oﬀ huge in the colour department. Best of all, planting bulbs in the fall is super easy. If you’re new to the fall bulb scene, check out these tips to get started.
PURCHASE YOUR BULBS It is important to make sure your bulbs feel ﬁrm. Here at Cedar Rim Nursery, we receive our fall bulbs in the last week of August or early September. So even though it’s not time to plant yet, pick from the best availability by purchasing your bulbs early. Store your bulbs in a dark, cool and dry place like a garage or shed until it is time to plant. Don’t miss these awesome varieties when you’re planning out your garden: Narcissus ‘Mondragon’ – Beautiful, striking yellow petals with a ruﬄed orange cup. The light apple fragrance only adds to this unique Butterﬂy Narcissus. Easy to naturalize and deer resistant. Hardy to Zone 3. Tulip ‘Apricona’ – Apricot pink delicate petals that bloom mid spring. These soft, peachy pastel hues are a dream after many months of winter. Hardy to Zone 3. Allium ‘Ambassador’ – Deep purple globes of massive ﬂowers that are 7 inches across. Getting up to 40 inches tall, these garden giants bloom in early summer and are a deﬁnite showstopper. Hardy to Zone 4. WHEN TO PLANT There is no hard and fast rule on which exact date to plant your bulbs and here’s why: If planted too early in the fall when the soil is still warm, bulbs will get tricked into thinking it’s spring and start to sprout before they’ve had their necessary cooling period (which they usually receive over fall and winter). The cooling period is what ensures beautiful blooms. Generally, the best time to plant bulbs is in October as we get cooler nights (and the soil has cooled as well), closer to the ﬁrst frost date. This gives bulbs enough time to develop roots before winter sets in.
WHERE TO PLANT Plant your bulbs in an area where they will get lots of sunshine and the soil drains well. Stay away from any areas where water pools and the ground is quite soggy as this will cause your bulbs to rot. If you’re worried about small animals and deer getting into your plantings, pick up some environmentally friendly repellent like Bobbex or Animal B Gone to keep your bulbs from being snacks for the neighborhood wildlife. HOW TO PLANT Dig a hole using a bulb planter (check out the Florissa packaging to see how deep) usually 2 to 3 times deeper than the bulb is tall. Place the bulb in the hole with the pointy side facing up. If you don’t see a point on your bulb, look for the roots. The end with the roots will face down into the soil. Plant your bulbs in large groupings to get the most impact come springtime. The bulb has all the energy and food that it needs to push out blooms in the spring. But, if you want to give it a helping hand, add a little bit of Home & Garden Bone Meal or Home & Garden Bulb Food into each hole before covering up with dirt. Once all your bulbs are covered up with soil (we recommend using the Home & Garden Perennial Mix), give them a good drink of water. This will encourage them to start sending out roots. PATIENTLY WAIT FOR SPRING! The last step is the easiest, but also the hardest: patiently waiting out winter until you start to see fresh green shoots start to pop up all over your garden! A beautiful show of colour is just around the corner…

Parthenocissus quinqu ‘Red Wall’
Create Your Own Fall & Winter Wonderland By Sue Watson
o the last of the perennials and annuals are looking tired, but that does not mean the end of colour in the garden this fall and winter. By adding a few of these eye catching trees and shrubs that are fall and winter performers, your gardens will have interest through colour, texture and ﬂowers for months to come. You have guests arriving and walking up to the front door, so you still want the garden looking interesting and colourful even in the dead of winter. Consider incorporating a few of these trees and shrubs into your garden as it will add some sparkle in the dead of winter.
CHANGE OF LEAF COLOR Heavenly Bamboo
Nandina domestica ‘Burgundy Wine’. This Dwarf Nandina is primarily grown for its ornamental creamy white berries from early fall to late winter. It features narrow compound leaves that are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding red in the fall. These plants are most eﬀective when planted in groupings forming small hedges or edge walkways.
Parthenocissus quinquefolia ‘Red Wall’ this vine is fast growing, and creates a dramatic and colourful green wall that turns ﬁre-engine red in the fall and has small clusters of blue fruit. It clings by vigorous tendrils and climbs without support.
WINTER FLOWERS Sasanqua Camellia
Camellia sasanqua is a densely branched, pyramidal evergreen shrub that grows to 6-10’ tall and likes to grow in dappled shade. Species ﬂowers are single, but cultivar ﬂowers often come in single, semi-double or double-ﬂowered, with ﬂower colours ranging primarily from white, pink to red. A lovely single red variety with golden stamens at their heart is ‘Yuletide’.
Chimonanthus praecox has sweet fragrant blooms that appear in the dormant winter season and early spring. The stems become leaﬂess in winter but produce stunning star shaped ﬂowers that have yellow petals with inner red/purplish heart. The plant can grow up to 10 feet tall and requires a location with full sun and is sheltered against the wind. CEDAR RIM NURSERY FALL 2019 ● 10
INTERESTING BRANCH STRUCTURE AND BARK Weeping Purple Beech
Fagus sylvatica ‘Purple Fountain’ is a great specimen tree for smaller areas with its bronze-purple leaves that turn yellow then orange-brown before falling oﬀ slowly over winter leaving a striking silhouette.
Acer griseum is a zen-like tree that you always want to reach out and touch because as it ages the bark becomes very distinctive with its paper sheets of peeling bark that reveal the smooth, shiny new cinnamon brown bark. Plant somewhere in the garden that you can walk up to it and enjoy the beautiful bark, it grows 25’ high by 15’ wide.
TEXTURE Inkberry Holly
Ilex glabra ‘Gem Box’ is a small evergreen shrub with dainty dark green leaves and attractive dark red tips during the spring ﬂush. In fall and winter it provides a lush prescense even during the bare months of winter.
Cornus sanguinea ‘Arctic Sun’ has strikingly unusual yellow, orange, and coral stems that pop in the winter landscape. This is a very easy to grow shrub that is deer resistant and takes pruning. The stems may be cut for winter ﬂower arrangements.
BERRIES, SEED HEADS AND CONES Witherod viburnum
Viburnum nudum ‘Brandywine’ has an amazing berry show with a mix of ivory, pink and blue berries all on the same plant. This shrub has outstanding deep maroon/red fall leaf color, grows to 5’ high by 5’ wide and is deer resistant.
Callicarpa x ‘Pearl Glam’ is showy in spring with dark purple foliage followed in late summer by white ﬂowers that yield “Thrills Gum” coloured violet-purple berries by the hundreds on naked branches. This upright habit variety makes this a space-saver compared to more conventional beautyberry varieties.
Symphoricarpos sp.’Proud Berry’ has unique pink berries that are sure to grab your attention. This shrub has rounded bluishgreen leaves and in late summer produces bell-shaped ﬂowers which develop into large dark pink berries that intensifying with cold weather. It is deer resistant and is a feast for the birds. Makes an excellent cut ﬂower for fall arrangements.

Preparing Your Garden for Winter MULCHING
Mulching around plants helps protect their roots from frosts, especially where the roots are particularly shallow. It adds insulation to dormant perennials while adding organic matter and nutrition. Two or three inches is normally suﬃcient although you can increase the depth over the top of certain plants that might beneﬁt from a little extra protection. Aged bark or leaf mulch from your own garden works really well.
The hardy banana or Chinese Banana (Musa basjoo) is usually happy enough left in the ground in our area, however it will need added protection in order to allow it to thrive. You can cut down the stems to the ground once the ﬁrst couple of frosts have knocked the leaves back. Adding a layer of leaves or straw over the top of the plant followed by composted (or aged) bark will keep the plant happy over the winter. If you want to give your bananas a head start the following spring you can cut the leaves oﬀ but leave the stems standing. Knock four posts into the ground around the perimeter of the plant and attach chicken wire to these posts, creating a cage. Stuﬀ straw loosely around the stems to insulate them and then add a plastic cover or tarp on the top to create a roof. Keep the sides open and this will allow good air circulation so they don’t rot.
The windmill palm (Tracycarpus fortunei) is particularly cold hardy, however its not keen on the continual freezing and thawing experienced locally. The key for good palm health is to prevent water getting into the crown (growing tip) of the trunk. Wrapping the trunk with heat tape and then bundling up the leaves and putting a cover over them, such as plastic will help with this. You can wrap a layer of burlap or crop cover around the trunk too. It is important to do this only when the weather gets to be consistently cold as doing it too early and leaving it wrapped up too long can encourage the crown to rot. Never bundle the leaves too tightly as this can also incourage excess moisture and therefore rotting.

3-STEP WINTER FOUNTAIN CARE
Many people don’t realize that when plants are kept in pots they are actually 1. Drain & Dry less cold hardy. This is Unplug all stopppers & rubber because the roots are seals. more exposed to freezing temperatures. You can either line your pots on 2. Place old towels or burlap into the inside with bubble basins and bowls wrap before planting or alternatively you can 3. Cover & Secure wrap them on the outside afterwards. Doing it on the inside to begin with looks a lot better than looking at tatty bubble wrap all winter. Good drainage is key too, so make sure your outdoor pots have adequate drainage holes and that there is at least a couple of inches of stone in the bottom to aid drainage. Removing saucers and placing on pot feet will further help your plant when it comes to freezing. A handy tip is making sure your pots don’t dry out completely, even if the plant is dormant. Dry roots that freeze are more likely to succumb to the cold so don’t forget about those plant pots tucked away under the eaves. Water once a month, even in the winter.
Some pruning can be undertaken in the fall, especially when shrubs or trees have become unruly or are newly planted and need a bit of a haircut to stop them rocking in the wind. Roses can be trimmed back by a third, especially Hybrid Tea or Grandiﬂora varieties. Lower growing landscape ones can be left as they will usually keep ﬂowering much longer. Perennials and Grasses can be left standing where their dried stems and seed heads add another element of interest and texture to the garden. Seed heads also provide much needed nourishment to birds and other wildlife. Much delight can be had when noticing dew covered cobwebs dangling from your maiden grass midwinter. Leaving grasses and other perennials as they are also helps insulate them as nature intended. Don’t be tempted to prune those hydrangeas either, left to dry naturally on the shrub, their skeletonised ﬂower heads protect the new ﬂower buds as well as looking attractive.
