Welcome to Plant Exchange Blog. We share weekly about plants of the greater region and people who grow them.
One of our fall favorites in our region is the perennial aster. Pollinators like these plants too. This year asters began blooming in August instead of September.
We’re sure we have more summer left, but some of the change of season flowerbed activity begins as soon as you want to start.
