Fall & Early Winter Gardening
Most gardeners start packing their gardening tools as soon as the winter months commence. Fall is the time when we engage ourselves in cleaning the garden and gathering spent leaves and flowers. Fall and Early Winter can be an excellent time for planning and planting certain plants for the spring season.
Many plants and vegetables can be grown in the fall and early winter season, and the best ones are bulbs that start blooming in the late winter and early spring season to produce vibrant and colorful flowers. The spring season will bring harmonious colors to your garden if you plan out well and plant selective flowering plants. Many plants can be grown by planting bulbs in the soil in the autumn season. Some common plants people prefer are Tulip, Lily, Daffodil, Iris, Anemone, Hyacinth, etc. These plants produce attractive flowers that can add color to your garden.
Planting in the fall and winter
You can further enhance the picturesque beauty of your garden by growing Chrysanthemums or Mums. Mums are very versatile flowers, and they come in wide varieties and colors. September happens to be the perfect month for planting Chrysanthemum varieties of your choice in the garden.
Fall is also the ideal time for pruning your shrubs and hedges after summer growth. Pruning will help the plant initiate further growth in the coming season, and it will also contribute to shaping up the plant. Mulching is another important activity for the fall and winter seasons. As the temperature starts to drop, the soil tends to get moist and freeze. The frozen soil can damage the roots and stems of plants, and they can even die, so mulching is required to maintain the soil temperature. You can use hay, crushed corn cobs, straw, and wood chips as mulch for your garden.
The fall and winter seasons are great for planting many flowering plants in your garden. You can find a wide range of perennial and annual plants from a local nursery to plant in your home garden, which can enhance its beauty to manifolds.
