These plants provide vibrant color during the fall to as gardeners await spring colors to return. These plants are relatively easy to grow with lower temperatures and fertilizers and the luscious flowers will warm your heart every time you visit your greenhouse.

Did you know that saving the seeds for the next growing season is as easy as placing them in a mason and storing on a shelf in your greenhouse? Simply separate the seeds you with to save for a later date, place them in an air tight sealed mason jar, and store them in a cool dry area. Even if your seeds are dated they should still have a high germination rate if store properly.

Attention greenhouse hobbyists: with fall approaching it is a perfect time to begin drying coffee grounds to be used as fertilizer over winter. You can utilize your greenhouse benches while there is still space or simply lay out a sheet of newspaper  and spread your coffee grounds on it to dry. Once they are dry you can either store them in a container to use later or spread them around your acid loving plants such as roses, azaleas or rhododendron. A ½ cup of dried coffee ground is good for about a 3 foot plant.
