                                FALL CHORES

Fresh days and crisp nights put us in the mind of fall and all the outdoor chores that tag along with the season.  Every autumn brings the question, "Should I clean up the garden now or wait' til spring?".  Our answer, as ever, is "yes".  That is, clean up what calls out to be cleaned up now,  but leave the rest for spring, when a thorough  tidying up can be undertaken.  Yank out all annuals, of course, and cut down perennials such as Hosta and Daylilies - plants that turn squishy come October and are not much fun to deal with in spring.  Leave standing perennials that might provide winter texture and food for wintering birds.  Things such as Joe Pye weed, Sedums, Alliums, Ferns, Siberian Iris and certain grasses are spared the shears' til spring in our gardens.  Spring is always the time when we have more energy for that kind of task anyway.  Fall should provide the weary gardener at least a speck of time to just sit and enjoy it all.


Employment Opportunities

  After a few lack luster seasons, 2014 proved to be a winner for Kelley and Kelley.  Folks just seem to be in a mood for landscape improvement and for an increased level of beauty around their property.  We're looking for that level of business to continue in the future, so we're looking to add a few employees for 2015.
  If you love working outside, enjoy the company of plants, and care to work either part time or full time from April to November, come talk with us.  We'll have positions available both at the garden center and on the landscaping and gardening crews.  We can promise a fun, relaxed atmosphere working alongside people who can hardly wait to get to work in the morning.  Do give us a ring if you want to discuss this further.
