Tips to Make Your Fall Garden Bright

September is the beginning of a new season with cooler nights and more comfortable days. Sweaters instead of shorts and maybe it’s time to take off the slippers… possible.

Make your garden (and next year’s garden too) a colorful garden.

September is the perfect time to change flowering annuals from summer to autumn. Many perennials have done their job and are ready to be cut. There will be a few spots in the gardens that seem a little empty at this time of year. I call it an opportunity! Choose cold-resistant flowers to fill the spaces in your garden. Mums, asters and cabbage can withstand the weather conditions of September and October.

While you’re thinking about how to keep a little color in your garden, see you next spring. Does your garden wake up with beautiful flower bulbs? If this is your intention, hurry up and order now. Like many other products this year, the bulbs will be scarce, Rumer said.

Expert tip: the best lamps come from the Netherlands, so you have to plan. A good rule of thumb for determining how many bulbs you need is to consider each bulb as a single flower in your bouquet.

Have You Recently Moved?

If you are a new owner, congratulations! What an exciting time for you! The beginning of a new adventure.

A warning: Don’t do too much too fast.

If your lawn needs to be moistened or sown, now is a good time to do it. However, if you have the vision of a complete renovation of your garden plot … think about it again.

Ideally, you would be able to live in an open space for at least most of the season. Yes, there are obvious things to do, such as fencing, painting, etc., but really find out about your needs and desires before you go to recreate your space. You want everything to be done right and when you are ready, we will be there.

Divide and rule

Are your hosts a bit busy? Autumn is the perfect time to give your hosts a little rest.

It is better to dig out the root ball completely. Use a sharp edge to divide the host into pieces, and then transplant to a new location. Make changes to the soil and wrap it well. Rainy weather conditions will help take root before the hostas rise again next spring.
