Tips To Gardening In Fall Season
Using the fall season to take care of your garden is something many gardening experts recommend. Fall gardening actually help to create a well established garden for the spring and summer months. Fall gardening typically involves either planting new growth during fall months or planting during the summer to harvest or enjoy plants during the fall. As the days become cooler, there are a number of plants that can be planted during the fall for appreciation during winter and early spring. Evergreens can be set in the ground just about any time as long as the ground is not frozen and will flourish throughout the fall and winter. Some trees, such as Japanese maples, can be planted during the summer and enjoyed during the fall as the leaves change colors dramatically and create vivid and beautiful displays of fall colors. Fall gardening can also include planting vegetables that can be harvested and appreciated throughout the fall and winter. Root plants such as carrots, pumpkins, and winter squash can all be planted late and enjoyed throughout the colder months. Some bulb flowers, such as day lilies and tulips, can be planted during the fall and will produce early spring blossoms.
Fall gardening can also include finding ways to continue enjoying plants that have flourished throughout the summer. Herbs can be grown in or transferred to pots and brought indoors during the cold fall and winter months. They should be placed where they will still receive plenty of sunlight throughout the day, though they will likely require less water and may need only occasional misting.
