Why Fall Is A Great Time To Plant
Spring isn’t the only time of year that is good for planting. Although the chill that starts to creep into the air may not seem like good conditions for working on your landscape, here are a few reasons why it may be worth it to add new plants during the Fall:
- Everything starts to go dormant in the Fall. During the Fall, your plants begin to prepare for the cold months that will soon arrive as Winter sets in. Planting new shrubs, trees, and flowers right before the Winter allows your new plants to acclimate to their surroundings and naturally freeze over with the rest of your landscape.
- The risk of drought is lower in the Fall. The cooler temperatures are actually better for your plants because you don’t have to worry about the summer heat and constantly watering your gardens.
- You’ll find good deals on nursery stock. Local nurseries offer discounts during the Fall to clear out their stock once the Summer ends. And who can pass up a great deal?
