We’re planting pansies and violas in our porch and patio pots. Add height and interest with our goldilocks, trailing evergreen wire vine, and specialty grasses.
Decorate for the season and make an entrance. Place some fresh mums, marigolds and pumpkins on the front porch. Add a little height with our colorful crotons and ornamental grasses.
If you like to enjoy beautiful cool weather while enjoying the garden, fall is for you because it really is the best time to plant. Shrubs, trees, perennials, perennial herbs, daylilies, and ornamental grasses should all be planted now. The plants will have the fall, winter and early spring seasons to firmly establish their root systems. A plant with good roots will provide a beautiful show next spring and then you get to reap the rewards.
Cool off your bulbs. It’s time to put hyacinths and tulip bulbs in the refrigerator now. Leave them in there for several weeks. The extra cooling will help produce bigger and better blooms for next spring.
