When we think of spring, we often think of planting plants, shrubs, and flowers, but fall is a great time to plant quite an array of plants that will show their full potential and beauty the following spring. Here are some plants you can get started on now.
Cold Season Vegetables- Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Cabbage, Kale, Lettuce, Radishes, Spinach, Swiss Chard, and Rutabaga. Cover to prevent freezing temps, but allows sunlight in to help growth.
Turfgrass- Fall is the best time to get this established. Fertilize in September, and again in November to ensure beautiful spring growth.
Trees and Shrubs- Plant these while the soil is still warm, but no longer in the mid-summer heat. Make sure to check before you dig in the ground, and keep well watered before the frost hits, to ensure root growth.
Perennials and Peonies- Make sure to stop watering once frost hits, but these will bloom so beautifully come spring time.
We hope this has encouraged you to get out there and do some planting while the weather is cool and mild. Once spring hits, you will be so glad you did. Now get out there, and start planting! If you do, take a photo, and tag us on Social Media!
