They’re the most iconic plant of the season and sometimes the most finicky to care for. December 12th marks National Poinsettia Day, so we’re here to give the holiday how-to on all things poinsettia!

Now that we’ve moved to the season for indoor gardens and plants, we’d like to give you our expert advice at all things indoor plants. Even after your plant purchase from our nursery, we care about the condition and quality of our products. Post-purchase care often involves repotting, watering, pruning and even reading. That being said, there are all kind of studies out there about a plant’s response to sounds.

We’re here to settle the myth once and for all: plants like being talked, read and sang to.

    We’re just a few days away from one of the spookiest events of the year. Between creepy costumes, scary stories and haunted houses, Halloween brings out the creative best in everyone.

    Whether you sew your own princess outfit for this holiday or bake your own brain-inspired goods, one way to ward off the Spooktacular spirits is through a flower-power pumpkin. Now, we may be biased, but nothing is more festive than a pumpkin carved with a plant design.  

    Thank goodness we live in a world where there are Octobers. As one of our favorite months of the year, October brings swift weather changes, harvest season and a craze for pumpkin spice everything.  

    Running October 5-11, take advantage of the sales we have going on at Fossil Creek. You can't buy happiness, but you can buy plants and that's about the same thing. 

    Night time temperature drops with the mix of daytime sunshine can only mean one thing: it’s time to bury your bulbs! In your garden, that is.

    The end of September is the start of the “second season” of outdoor planting and whether you’re a beginner plant caretaker or have a master green thumb, planting flowering bulbs is almost foolproof. Fossil Creek Nursery just received a huge shipment of fall bulbs and we’re here to give you the tips and tricks to these blooming beauties!

    Plan to Start Planting

    Good morning, autumn. The turn of a new season means new calendars, new holidays and new events at your local, plant nursery!

    Friends, mark your calendars for Fossil Creek Nursery’s very own, Harvest Fest. Happening on Saturday, October 7th from 10 am – 3 pm, our fest has been enjoyed by thousands over the years! 

    We will be bringing in several samples of the varieties of apples that grow right here in Colorado to the nursery. Fest go-ers will be able to taste the different flavors from these tasty fruits and then vote for your favorite.

    September is that sweet spot between summer heat, crisp mornings and leaf color changes. That being said, Colorado is infamous for having a spectacular outdoor architecture and September marks the start of road trips to the mountains to see the color changes of aspen trees.
