ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY CROTON
The thriller in this arrangement is one of our favorites for fall - THE CROTON! You can find these tropical plant beauties in the greenhouse section of big box hardware stores or garden centers. The colors in the croton just scream fall, especially if the leaves have a little red in them like the plant in this picture. They will do well outside until the first freeze and then bye-bye croton. If you are super industrious, you could always dig it up, repot it and bring it inside to enjoy all winter as a house plant and then bring it outside again in the spring. That's what we call getting our money's worth out of a plant.
One of our favorite fillers in a fall container garden is ornamental cabbage. The purple cabbage in this picture is Osaka Red. How 'bout that ruffled texture in the broad leaves! Our two favorites cabbages are Osaka Red and Osaka White. There are so many different varieties of cabbage and kale and all are perfect to use in your outdoor fall planters.
Need a festive centerpiece for your kitchen island or table? These succulent pumpkins are the cutest! They are so easy to maintain (just mist once a week) and they will last for months and months. We have three sizes to offer you - small, medium and large. Let us know if we can create any for you this season.
P.S. - they make great teacher and hostess gifts too!

Curb Appeal Shout Out!
When you own a fabulous boutique, are a mom to 2 busy girls AND you are a super active community volunteer, you don't have time to do your own outdoor planters. We are delighted to help Katherine create welcoming curb appeal through container gardens at her clothing store, Gretta Sloane.
Katherine has owned Gretta Sloane for 3 years and her favorite thing about owning the store is the people. "I thrive on meeting new people and chatting it up with friends. I cherish each encounter I have with one of the "Gretta Girls" (all the great girls who work for me), a new customer, a Saturday regular or Dee, our post woman. These relationships are what makes doing this job never feel like I'm doing a job. We love Adorn for many reasons. First, I kill every plant I ever buy or plant. So I've decided to leave all planting up to the professionals. Second, the first impression someone has of the store is from the front, whether they are stopping in for something special, browsing after a trip to Organic Squeeze, on their morning walk to Starbucks with the dogs, parking to get their hair done. We want everyone who encounters Gretta Sloane to feel welcome and comfortable even before they walk in. Adorn helps us do that. Finally, we use Adorn because Elizabeth is a joy to work with. She makes it easy for me. She contacts me at the beginning of every season with a timeframe and ideas. I don't have to lift a finger. We love Adorn!"
Katherine has such an eye for fashion! Check out her store in Nichols Hills Plaza for fab clothes, shoes and accessories for every season.
You only get one chance to make a first impression, make it count!
