The traditional poinsettia is the plant of the Christmas season, with its beautiful bright red and dark green foliage. This time of the year you can see this festive plant popping up all around homes and businesses in order to add an instant touch of the Holidays. We know you can get poinsettias just about anywhere these days, so what makes a Grown By Al’s Poinsettia far and away the best in the Northwest?

Gardening may be a pastime dominated by older generations, but more and more young people are starting to shop at the plant nursery and develop their green thumb as gardeners.

Nothing complements a home like a lush outdoor garden. This is no secret — in 2017, over a third of all Americans engaged in some form of gardening. For a space to feel truly comfortable, it needs those natural forms to which we all gravitate. This is why it is so hard to see those plants wither away during the long, harsh winters.

We really enjoyed the bright blooms of summer flowers (and all that sun), but are undoubtedly looking forward to the fall season. We’ve already talked about how fall is perfect for planting in order to produce strong plants next spring, but what about when we want to make our yard and garden look great right now? There are many trees and shrubs that provide cool and unique foliage colors and textures this time of the year. Here are a few of our favorite trees and shrubs that look great in the fall, available now at all Al’s locations!
