Baldwin Nurseries is a family owned garden nursery located in Upper Falmouth, near Windsor, Nova Scotia. Since 1995, we have been growing and selling shrubs, trees, and perennials, including many native to Atlantic Canada.
With the coming of cooler temperatures, especially at night, and some actual precipitation, we can safely get back to gardening. There are plenty of interesting things to plant now to extend your colour season, including Helenium 'Ruby Tuesday', which is a real great pollinator plant.
Several of us have been discussing the newer cultivars of coneflowers, and comparing notes on how well they are performing after several years of being available. This is Green Envy planted out and holding its green/purple bicolour petals quite well. Some of the containerized ones seem to have lost much of their green colour, and we're wondering if this is a response to the dry conditions we've been having.
