Seasonal Switch Out Package

SEASONAL SWITCH OUT PACKAGE


Our seasonal switch out package is a four time seasonal container switch out; for spring, summer, fall and winter. Each interval is approximately 2 months long starting around May 15th, depending on weather.  The package includes custom designs, quality selected plants, premium materials, installation, pick up and disassembly. Delivery fees are applicable outside of the immediate New Ulm area. Please see our delivery service area pricing chart.  


The spring container is planted with the cheerful colors such as pansies, tulips and cold-loving plants. When the blooms begin to fade, we change out to a summer smasher with drought tolerant plants to withstand the summer heat and it lasts well into early autumn. Following this, a fall arrangement made with plant candidates that are able to tolerate the cooler outdoor temperatures and plants far greater than just mums! Finally, a wonderful mix of fresh greenery and colorful ribbons fill the container for the winter season and holidays. 


We return approximately January 15th, to collect the container(s). Design for each season and plant selections are determined by Garden Secrets based on the exposure at your location. When it is time to switch out the old and bring in the new, we will send a friendly reminder that your new container is on its way.

About Our Containers

PLANT SELLECTION

Plant Selection

We create arrangements using annuals, perennials, grasses – plus more! We carefully select premium plants for optimal satisfaction. Plants are selected based on the exposure at your site (sun, shade, container size, etc.) and determined based on availability and quality. Seasonal switch out containers - some plants may be stored for reuse in the next season for design purposes. 

MATERIALS

Materials

Garden Secrets selects reputable suppliers to ensure that you are provided the highest quality materials available. A premium-grade potting mix is used and is supplemented with a high-quality, slow-release fertilizer and water reduction amendments. This mixture ensures proper drainage, boosts plant strength and provides continuous nutrition for your plants.

INSTALLATION

Installation

The installation takes place on-site. It involves us setting up the container, planting and thoroughly watering when we are finished. All plant tags are left on the inside of your container. After your installation is complete, you may visit our website for specific information and details for the plants we installed, as well as care and maintenance tips. It is a handy online reference tool, whether it be for yourself, friends or customers asking “What is that plant?”
