Mums is the word at Spring Valley Greenhouse

If you’re looking to spruce up your yard this fall, then Spring Valley Greenhouse & Floral has what you need. The Greenhouse originally opened 40 years ago, and for the last 12 years has been owned and operated by the Gehling family (Carol, Jacob & Jered).

According to Jacob, “This is a great time of year to plant trees, shrubs and mums. You need to make sure they get plenty of water. And you’ll want to protect the trunks of any young trees from damage caused by rabbits and deer.” The Greenhouse has a wide selection of trees and shrubs to choose from, depending on your preference, and the sun and soil conditions where they’ll be planted. If you have specific questions about what would grow best in your yard, the Gehlings will be happy to lend their expertise.

Besides trees and shrubs, they also stock perennials, herbs and vegetable plants for all your landscaping or gardening needs. Of course, mums are very popular in the fall because of their blooming season, and the Greenhouse offers many varieties. And if you’re looking to put in a retaining wall or patio, they’ve got you covered there, as well. Jacob noted that some homeowners plan ahead for spring graduation events by doing their planting and landscaping now in the fall, so that everything will look its best next spring.

Another popular trend is Fairy Gardening, which might be described as miniature indoor landscaping. The Greenhouse has a large variety of these mini decorations, which include gazebos, houses, tables & chairs, stone paths, archways, etc. Jacob says, “Fairy Gardening really picks up in the fall, as people start spending more time indoors.”

Besides all of the options already mentioned, Jacob pointed out that the Greenhouse is, of course, also the place to get all of your fresh floral arrangements. “We’re an FTD Premier Florist, and we’re open all year around,” Jacob stated. They offer memorial garden stones and mylar balloons for any occasion. Delivery is available to anywhere in the surrounding area. Located at 720 North Broadway (next to A & W), Spring Valley Greenhouse & Floral is open daily (except Sundays). Call 507-346-7440 or stop in and visit with the Gehlings; they’ll be happy to help!
