Unlike spring which is often short- lived and followed by several months of hot summer weather, fall usually lasts a long time in southern Illinois. Cool nights and moderate daytime temperatures are conducive to root development and plant growth. Plants experience less stress when transplanted during the cooler months of autumn. And since our ground rarely freezes before January, September, October and even November are excellent months to plant trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, ground covers and fall flowers like pansies, mums, asters.
Call or e-mail us if you’re looking for a particular plant or new variety. We strive to carry all the good new stuff, but only if it’s right for our area. Here at Effingers we pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and quality plant material at affordable, competitive prices.
Freshen up for fall!
Join us Saturday September 1st, at 11 AM for a free informal container workshop. Bring in one of your own tired pots or choose from our seasonal pottery and rustic autumn baskets. Have fun and make the mess here! Kids and pets are welcome.
