Fall planting of trees, shrubs and perennials has long been a tradition for many families. Landscape plants are going dormant, temperatures are cooler, water demands are reduced, and success rates remain high.
When spring comes, the new plants are ready and waiting to quickly establish and flourish. Well planned fall planting projects can also save substantial amounts of money, since great bargains are available at most nurseries.
An added plus for fall planting is the pleasant fall weather that makes time spent on a project outdoors enjoyable and easier. October and November have quite a few fabulous fall days, so there’s still plenty of time to do that project you’ve been putting off. Seize the opportunity. It’s a wonderful time. (to plant).
