Fall is the time to spruce up your garden. If you are not sure how or when the right time to do it is, don’t worry we got you. Keep reading to find out some fall planting tips and tricks that will help you make your garden something you are proud of.
Timing is Key
New planting is delicate. Therefore, harsh weather conditions will cause the plants fail. They will not grow, leaving you to have to buy all new ones and start again. Making sure you watch the weather is key. The time to plant is from late September to November. So, you still have time. Gather all your plants and vegetables and start!
Bigger isn’t Always Better
When going to purchase your plants or vegetables bigger is not always better. The smaller 4-inch pots are way better. They tend to be less expensive and easier to manage. With all the rain they will eventually catch up to the size of a bigger plant with time.
Read the Plant Tags
Another important thing to note when going to plant is reading the plant tags. The tags tell you how large the plant will grow or if the plant grows best in shade or sunlight. This is important for you to know before bringing the plant home. Take the extra 5-10 minutes to read the tag so you know what you are getting yourself into.
Plan to Water
Do not just rely on the rain to water your plants. Plan to water them on your own. Set a time every day or every other day to go outside and water the plants. If your schedule is really busy, you can put in an inground system that automatically water it for you.
Grant them Room to Grow
Lastly, give them room to grow. You do not want to plant all your plants and vegetables too close to each other. IF you do that they will not grow properly and not give you the results you are looking for. Giving them room to grow will allow them to reach their fullest potential and grow to your liking.
