Fall is the perfect time to change up your porch and front yard decorating scheme as well as updating your landscaping. Colorful mums, pansies and ornamental plants such as millet, cabbage and kale bring something new and unique to a fall theme. They can be used in planters or planted directly in the ground and will last through the fall season.
Using props such as bales of straw and cornstalks are a great way to decorate a lamp post or front porch. You might add a scarecrow, jack-o-lantern or spider webs for a spooky display. But nothing says fall harvest like a bountiful display of pumpkins, squash and gourds! We have an amazing selection of produce here at Hicks this fall including:
Gourds are for decoration. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes with weird names to describe their shapes like apple, gooseneck and birdhouse gourd.
Squash can be decorative as well as tasty and includes acorn, turban, hubbard and fairy tale.
Pumpkins can be both beautiful and delicious. With names like bliss, porcelain doll, cinderella, tondo, blue jarrahdale, flat white boar, lunch lady and one too many – you can just imagine the colors go way beyond orange!
Stop by Hicks Nurseries to shop our amazing selection!
