Fall is for Planting

Fall is for Planting

Notice how the days are getting shorter?  October is upon us and many customers ask me whether it is too late to install new plantings in their gardens.  The short answer is no.  The best time to plant is when you have a shovel in your hand, however fall is better than spring.

The reason why most people plant in the spring is because 80% of the plants we sell are in bloom at that time of the year.  It is assumed by most consumers that spring is the only time of the year to install plants in the garden.  When you are planting a new garden or lawn in the fall you will see it establish more roots and thicker stems.  Plants realize that the air temperature is getting cooler; however the soil temperature is still very warm, from the hot summer weather we have had. If you can encourage more root development then your plantings will be more focused on foliage and flower growth next season.

Plants grow best when they receive ample   water and plenty of sun.   The sun is a major part on how well your lawn, and garden plants thrive. We are receiving plenty of sun and warm temperatures this fall so take advantage and construct that next garden or planting area in your yard.

If you need some ideas of what plants to use in your yard then come to our Chelmsford facility and ask me what my favorite plants are.
