Why plant pansies in the Fall? They are a hardy cold weather flower that can handle temperatures down into the 20s and usually return in the Spring spectacularly!
To add color to your fall garden, Giordano’s has beautiful pansies at this time of year! Stop by today for our colorful selection.
For your soil, we recommend changing out the soil in your pots with fresh new potting soil! If you’re planting in the ground, consider a soil enhancer such as Bumper Crop (also available at Giordano’s).
Come in to our nursery at 295 Glen Cove Ave in Sea Cliff and have one of our trained employees help you pick out a beautiful selection of brightly colored pansies to enhance your fall garden.
Nature has had billions of years to perfect it’s strategy for survival. Plants especially are capable of fascinating reproduction. For example by clipping the leaf from a Snake plant, such as the one pictured below, cutting it into three pieces and planting it in soil, a new plant will emerge in 12 weeks. In contrast a spider plant sends shoots out from it’s base and on the end of each shoot grows a replica of the “mother” plant that can be rooted by placing the “baby” in a glass of water for 10-12 days. Once new roots are 2 inches the “baby” can be planted in soil & will eventually become a mother plant itself! Begonias are yet entirely different! To propagate begonias, take a clipping with at least 2 leaves and place the stem in a glass of water and new roots will emerge in 5-7 days, roots need to be 3-4 inches long before planting for best results.
Propagating plants is a wonderful way to give presents and promote sustainability. Check out this article on how houseplants actually keep you healthier! House Plants Keep You Healthy!

Symbiotic relationships exist throughout the natural world. Species tend to develop these mutually beneficial relationships in order to overcome certain obstacles and often they come to depend on the advantage that working together to achieve a common goal supplies. As it turns out one such symbiotic relationship exists that we can take advantage of as gardeners!
