It’s happening now and the signs are there — a little less daylight, a return to class and the early morning squeak of the school bus brakes. Autumn is right around the corner and that means it’s time for the beautiful bounty of fall flowers. Your local Strack & Van Til is already featuring some autumn décor and as August progresses, more and more fall floral and other items will make their way to your neighborhood store.

“Our favorite time of year for fresh flowers and plants is fall, and we do it big,” says Floral Director Jen Knoche. “Check out our fresh sunflowers, football mums, rover poms and so much more.”

Choose from a cornucopia of seasonal bunches in the Floral Department’s grab-and-go section or pick up a plant.

“Our gorgeous fall outdoor mums, asters and kale will start arriving at the end of August and are sure to make your porch the talk of the neighborhood,” notes Knoche. “We offer traditional outdoor mums you can plant in the ground or planter as well as a large patio mum that is already planted for you. However, our most unique offering is our mum hanging basket.”

The mum hanging baskets are available in an array of rich and vibrant fall colors such as purple, golden yellow, burgundy, bronze and more. There are also stunning indoor fall mums that make great gifts or centerpieces for the living room or kitchen.

If you’re looking for something extra special, you might consider ordering a custom autumn arrangement.

“All of our stunning floral selections are handcrafted, personally designed and artfully arranged by our Strack & Van Til trained floral designers,” Knoche says.

Knoche adds that in addition to autumn blooms, the Strack & Van Til Floral Department offers ceramic fall planters and porch décor, dried fall bouquets and balloons.

Fall for the autumn and welcome it with fresh flowers from your local Strack & Van Til.
