The Pumpkins Are Coming–
the Week of September 8th!

Pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, straw bales, corn stalks and lots more will be arriving at the Garden Center throughout that week.

Summer is officially gone… Autumn has arrived!

Hard to believe that we are almost through yet another growing season. The time goes by so fast, doesn’t it? Now, with spring and summer 2014 fading into the past, we are turning our attention to the impending fall season. So, just as the arrival of the football season generates lots of excitement here in central Illinois, we at Niepagens also like to create some “hoopla” for autumn’s arrival by staging our own unique celebration. We call it the Fall Kick-Off Event– from Friday, September 12th through Sunday, September 14th.

Throughout the entire weekend (that’s all day Friday, Saturday & Sunday), we will be offering special discounts on many of our remaining plants, including 50% Off of all Trees & Shrubs and 50% Off of all remaining Spring/Summer Perennials (but not including seasonal fall plants, such as mums, asters, pansies, flowering cabbage & kale). Here’s what else we have scheduled for that weekend…

• Friday, September 12th:
Opening Night Tailgate Party from 4PM-7PM, featuring a Chili Cook-Off between several Niepagen staffers (there’s already some “trash talk” going on amongst our employees, as to who’s the best chili cook), so, be sure to taste each chili recipe and cast a vote for your favorite one! In addition to the chili sampling, more delicious tailgate food and spirits will be provided by your friends at Niepagens, and with a lot of help from our friendly pitmaster, “Smokin’ Paul”. Enjoy the evening by browsing our large assortment of fall decorations– and by picking up some of the previously mentioned plant deals!

• Saturday, September 13th:
Fall Shopping from 8AM-5PM– offering customers a chance to take advantage of special pricing on many of our remaining plants and shop our unique fall selections. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, as well.
Fall-Themed Seminars:
11AM:
“The Right Time To Prune Is When You Have The Time To Prune Right.” We de-mystify the entire pruning process. Learn all about proper pruning from our expert resident arborist…
1 PM:
  “Planting Fall Bulbs For Great Spring Color!” Fall doesn’t have to be an inactive time for gardeners– we’ll show you how to “plant ahead” for bursts of brilliant color in springtime!
3 PM:
  “Make & Take Fall Containers.&rdquo Bring your own containers, or buy them here– then with the help and advice of our knowledgeable staff, PLANT AWAY! Cost of the seminar will be whatever you need to buy to put into the containers that you assemble. Get your hands dirty and show off your artistic individuality by creating a unique fall container arrangement!

• Sunday, September 14th:
Fall Shopping from 9AM-5PM– again, offering customers a chance to take advantage of special pricing on many of our remaining plants and shop our unique fall selections. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, as well.
Fall-Themed Seminars (Repeat):
11AM:
“The Right Time To Prune Is When You Have The Time To Prune Right.” We de-mystify the entire pruning process. Learn all about proper pruning from our expert resident arborist…
