Heather's Helpful Hint

Back to School
September 02, 2010

"Back to School" is such an exciting time. Kids are starting school for the very first time or are beginning a new phase like high school or college. How much excitement are you feeling, Mom and Dad, getting the kids back on a routine and out of the house for most of the day!

Have you thought about marking those events by planting a tree or shrub to remember that significant time? In addition to remembering special times, there is just more to enjoy all year round in your garden.

Roses, crape myrtles, butterflybush, and hydrangea are still blooming. Many trees will shortly be providing beautiful fall foliage color. Later summer perennials and grasses bring interest back into the landscape. Why not choose something you love to mark these events for those you love the most?
