With summer officially in the books, we can now look forward to the change in seasons now that full is in full effect. When it comes to the autumn months, planting in your garden might not be in your plans. But after stopping into Wojton’s Nursery, that is sure to change. You may be wondering how to tackle this project with the temperatures dropping. Here are a few fall planting guide tips to ensure you have a vibrant garden this season.
Choose the right plants
Some great options for fall planting include mums, pansies, asters, and ornamental kale. These plants are hardy and can withstand the cooler temperatures of fall.
Prepare your soil
Before planting, make sure to prepare your soil by loosening it and adding compost or fertilizer. This will provide the necessary nutrients for your plants to grow strong and healthy.
Plant at the right time
It’s important to plant your fall flowers and plants at the right time to ensure they have enough time to establish themselves before the colder weather sets in. Aim to plant them in early to mid-fall, giving them at least 6-8 weeks before the first frost.
While fall typically brings more moisture, it’s still important to water your plants regularly to ensure they stay healthy and hydrated.
To encourage your plants to continue blooming throughout the fall season, make sure to deadhead them regularly. This will also help to prevent diseases and pests from spreading.
Protect from frost
As the temperatures begin to drop, it’s important to protect your plants from frost. Cover them with a cloth or sheet overnight to prevent damage from frost.
By following these fall planting guide tips and tricks, you can create a beautiful and thriving fall nursery garden that will bring color and life to your yard throughout the season.
