3 Easy Ways to Get Started on Your Fall Garden!
Some may think that the end of summer means the end of the gardening season, but there is still plenty of work to do. Whether you’re a seasoned gardening veteran, or learning the ropes, here are some upcoming gardening projects!
Preparing for Fall Planting
As the fall season draws near, it’s time to start anew. By late August most gardeners harvest the produce of the spring season. When September is around the corner, it's time to pick all the ripe vegetables and fruits. Once the garden is picked, turn the dirt and put down fertilizer to enrich the soil. September is the best time to fertilize your garden, as the soil is recovering from a long and hot summer. After fertilizing, watering your garden can be very beneficial. It allows the fertilizer to penetrate deep into the soil. Now that you’ve prepped your garden, it’s time to get planting!
Simple Autumn Planting
Contrary to popular belief, some plants thrive in colder weather. Vegetables such as carrots, onions and kale can be grown during the winter months. These crops will be ready to harvest in just 50 to 60 days.
Vegetables are not the only plant to grow this fall. Spice up your flower beds with some fall colors. Adding orange, yellow and a hint of red will not only look lovely, but add some seasonal spirit to your garden!
Shrubs and Perennials
Add some extra flare to your landscaping with shrubs. They are best to plant in the fall because the temperatures are cooler. As a low maintenance plant, shrubs don’t need much water, and only need pruning every other month. Perennial flowers are another must have, low maintenance fall addition to your garden. Some are accented with purple or pink coloration. Perennials have dormant roots, which mean they pop back up every spring for up to 3 years!
