It’s Time for Fall Flower Planting and Clean-Up
The end of summer doesn’t mean we have to stop enjoying beautiful flowers and plants. From colorful asters, mums, and fall pansies to ornamental cabbages, kale and chards, and grasses, the range and variety of suitable fall plants is great. Plants can be added to your garden throughout October and will last until it’s time for winter containers. This is the best time to shop for fall annuals at the nursery, but the window of opportunity is short.
Terrascapes Fine Gardening can help you pick out the best combinations and arrange to make the selections attractive in your yard or in a container.
Fall is the time to plant Spring bulbs (tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses). We recommend plant when the soil is at a temperature of less than 50 degrees.
Fall Clean-up (October – December)
Fall is an important time for gardens. As we prepare for winter, we work to make sure they are healthy as possible. This includes cutting back perennials, composting, fertilizing, and leaf clean-up in the beds. We will also do any special pruning and dividing. If your garden has roses, we will include winter mulch. Final clean-up includes detritus & debris removal.
