After a glorious August we hope that September will usher in an Indian summer as wonderful… but on the off chance the weather doesn't cheer us we've put together some wonderful autumn offers to raise your spirits in other ways.

Big, beautiful containers, elegant fountains and statuary… Right now, you’ll find attractive savings on many of our large garden pieces, including many items from our popular Campania and Lechuza lines.  This sale is on in-stock items only, so shop early for best selection.

Campania International
Is our source for fountains, garden ornaments and pots. Not only are they winter-hardy in Quebec, they also add magical visual interest to a barren winter garden. Many of these pieces are on sale now. Come take your pick, and let’s talk price.  

These self-watering planters are well thought out in every detail, assuring healthy plants and easy care. These clever planters are also elegantly designed, and large models are on sale now at Bromewood. Pot plants up now for a winter indoors, and they’re all set to move outdoors come spring!

Feathered Friends
And on the subject of cold, autumn is a vital time for birds to start building their reserves to help survive the winter. Our top quality Squirrel Buster’s bird feeders created by Brome Bird Care .

Feeders are an invaluable resource for our feathered friends and are now available in the ‘Classic” and ‘Plus’ size.

Accortding to Olive
What a dismal day. Grey, damp and cold as my husband Herb’s feet. Then, just when I was about ready to give up and go back to bed (blessedly minus Herb), didn’t he show up at the back door with the last of the sunflowers from the garden.


Well, I guess I’d better trim them up and get them in a vase. Treat them right and they’ll last a good 10 days, maybe more. Don’t believe me? Here are my tips for keeping cut flowers fresh. Try them and see if they don’t work for you.


•Whether they’re from the garden or the florist, keep fresh flowers away from drafts and temperature extremes. So forget putting them on a sunny windowsill and put them someplace cool.
•Flowers don’t like fruit or cigarette smoke either, because of the ethylene gas.
•If they come wrapped in plastic from the florist, remove it as soon as you can, and if they’re arranged in foam oasis, add fresh water every day.
•As the days go by, nip off any dead or wilting leaves and stems as soon as you see them, and when the water gets cloudy, change it! Here’s what you do:
•First, get rid of any dead flowers or stems and lay the good ones to one side.
•Clean the vase well with soapy water and rinse it thoroughly.
•Replace the water and mix in the flower preservative provided by the florist. There are instructions on the packet.
•Now cut the stems at an angle one or two inches from the bottom. Use a sharp knife, not scissors! They’ll mash the stems.
Now put your flowers in the water – and remember to say thank-you to the person who gave them to you, no matter what his faults may be.

It’s official. Montreal Home Magazine loves Bromewood. See their write-up on us in their Autumn 2011 issue. It’s titled Stores We Love – and we love that!
