After a cold, frosty night last Monday morning, the days became sunny and much warmer like a typical October day.  Predictable is the fact that fall colors are not intense as usual because of the abnormally dry weather.  Sugar maples in the surrounding woods at the nursery have shed many of their leaves before turning the flaming orange, red and yellow hues as usual.

Poinsettias in the rear greenhouses are still growing so much so that this year’s crop will be larger than normal.  Color in the bracts is just now starting and will finish up by Thanksgiving. Many plants “appreciate” what is known as bottom heat in order to keep their root systems warm which in turn results in better top growth.
