Buyer's Guide: Plants For Fall

Four Seasons of Color in Plants For Fall


Whether you are starting out with your first planting, or are a seasoned gardener, the one thing you know for sure is that your garden needs plants for fall. Many people start early in the season, usually in the spring, but the early season gives you very little time to plan, get the soil in good shape, and fertilize. The fall season offers many options of flowers, vegetables, fruits, and trees to be planted and more time to care for them.

Early in the season, plant everything in pots on the bottom of the beds. Planting the majority of your vegetables in beds will give your gardens a uniform height and shape. Keep in mind when you are preparing your beds, that you may have to move some of the plants around to make room for the perennials you plan to plant now. Do not worry if this means moving a few feet around, once the perennial is set in the ground it will continue to grow at its natural rate, from year to year. It is better to keep the perennials to a minimum, as then you can include the annuals in the mix a little later. You want to take advantage of the full sun, cool weather that comes in autumn.

Once your beds are established, the rest of your fall gardens can be planted and maintained. Remember, as with all planting, sunlight is a vital factor when deciding where plants should be planted. Try to avoid getting the full sun, because this can dry out the soil quickly. In addition, if you have hardwood mulch over your soil, be sure to thin it out before planting. Full sun plants will often produce berries, which can be a colorful addition to your fall gardens.

If you are planting a combination of perennials and annuals, be sure you plant them in the correct order. Perennials should be planted from least three to six inches deep. Annuals should be planted one to three feet deep. Asters will be available in full sun, but they require an additional six to eight inches of depth for optimal growing conditions. Remember, as long as the soil is moist, asters will grow well. Be sure to check the height of your perennials and annuals well to ensure they are in the correct position.

You also need to consider how far apart your plants should be. Mums and ginseng can be planted up to 6 feet apart, while tulips, daffodils, and crocuses can be planted one to three feet apart. Be sure not to plant a dwarf juniper right up to your frost line! Remember, each zone has its own specific requirements, and you should consider all of them when deciding where to plant.

When it comes to the flowers that you will be flowering during the fall season, you have many options. Your garden can become an array of hues of pink, red, and gold, all year round. This is true regardless of the height of your plants. Tulips will flower just before the first frosts, and mums and ginseng can flower long before the first snowfall. Remember to consider the bloom time of your preferred flowers when deciding which plants for Fall you will use.

For those plants that prefer shade, you may want to choose shrubs or ground covers. Larger perennial plants like lavender, chives, and roses work great with a shady yard, but if you do not like shade, there are other options. For instance, daisies will bloom with almost any color of soil, and blue-flowered pansies work quite well in most areas. There are also drought-tolerant perennials like scabiosa that will thrive even in dry conditions. If you want a colorful display, try planting blue-flowered mums or calendula, both of which will show up in many colors. All of these flowers are great year-round and make beautiful accents on your tables, patio, or other areas in your garden.

One final note about low-maintenance shrubs and ground covers: their roots will go dormant during the winter months. During this time, they will continue to grow and bloom for Spring, making it easier to maintain them through the rest of the Fall season. This is a wonderful benefit, as many of the new perennials that come out in Spring are grown in the fall foliage of the previous year, so they will be ready to take over in full bloom just as soon as the leaves start to drop off.
